I eat here multiple times when I'm in Rocky Point and am always satisfied. It's been a few years since I've been down to Mexico and I was a little sad to see most of my go to taco shacks closed. I was delighted when I turned the corner in el malecon and saw this place still open. The structure... More

There is nothing fancy about this restaurant. We go there for the food! They serve choices of tacos : pork, chicken, shrimp and fish. They bring a tray of condiments to the table so you can make it the way you like it. Best part: Cheap Eats! Each taco was $1.00!

One of these days we will try another dish. They... More

Once again Viva Mexico has impressed me. This is most certainly the best taco shop in all of Rocky Point. They have fish, beef, chicken and pork tacos. They have a great refrigerated topping bar. This place simply can't be beat!

They have my favorite tacos...pastor. Lots of "fixins" so you can make them your own. Just off the malecon fish market road. Service is quick and friendly!

we found this place by accident. It fed our family of 7 for under $30 including tips, drinks and leftovers. Delicious meats, veggies and salsas. This was a nice treat to our hot day. LOVED!!

My family goes to Puerto Peñasco at least 5-6 times a year for the past few years. We love this Taco Shop. The family that cooks and serves the food are great people. The food is excellent. I have no idea how the fish tacos taste because I don't like fish but the other ones are excellent. Ya everything isn't... More
