I wouldn't qualify this as Mexican food. It's Tex-Mex at best. There's nothing spectacular about it. Had better.

I've been eating at this restaurant for years but just now getting to reviewing it. This place used to be about the only Mexican restaurant in town so there wasn't much choice but the food is decent and only recently have they sky rocketed the prices. The bar is usually the only reason I go there now, on weekdays they... More

This is our go-to for inexpensive, vegetarian food. The servers are decent, hence taking away a star, but they are very considerate when you say you want your food to be vegan. We go here numerous times a month.

Enchiladas are amazing. Chips and salsa are the best in town. And the service is amazing. Especially if your server is named TED!!!

Paradiso is a regional franchise popular with local residents. The Bismarck location is a much nicer place to eat than the Fargo restaurant which is often so loud you can't talk to your dining companions. It would be nice if the Jalapeno Burrito had a little lettuce and tomato garnish on the side and it seemed a little small, but... More

Popped in for a early snack. The place was busy and a bit crowded. We had the Comp Taco bar that's served between 16:00-18:00 M-F. It was very good and the crowd shows it is a continuous hit there. Old and in need of some sprucing up but it's good enough for regular folk I'm sure.

I make a point to stop here every time I visit town on business. I always sit in the bar because of their self serve chip bar. Lots of choices of sauces and dips. Food is always hot and fresh.

When we walked in they stated a 45 minute wait for the restaurant so we decided to go the bar. The waitress came by after 10 minutes and took our order and I asked where the chips and salsa where (as she went by 20 minutes later) as I saw many customers had them on the table. She said by... More
