Good food, bad atmosphere. Full of dirty latino workers who STARE and make comments while I was there eating. The place needs a health inspection BADLY. But, the food was good.

Went through drive through. Long wait for tacos and enchiladas. They were cool and lacked favor. Better to drive by.

The prices are great and the food is as well. Their gyro player is mine and my husbands favorite. The beans and rice are delicious. The fish tacos are the next best to the ones I make at home. They have a combo that is tacos and burritos it is enough to to feed me and my daughter.

Excellent everything! Fish tacos are to die for, sauces all great, sometimes a bit of a wait, but that is because its cooked fresh!

At first glance, Taco Viva might look a little sketchy, but don't be fooled! I have gone several times and I have mostly good things to say about it. Service is nice, just be prepared to wait a while. The prices are great, and you can get a ton of food for not so much money. Can't wait to go... More

Probably the best quesadilla I've had in the longest time. Very affordable and I big menu, service is great and every time I have come I've been satisfied. They also have very good tacos, definitely a must try!

I drive from Naples to go there. The food is that good. They have the most incredible authentic Mexican food I have ever eaten. Their prices are a lot lower than many other restaurants and you get a ton of food for the money. It is one of those hidden gems we stumbled across.

This place is a "knock-off" of the original, popular Taco Viva of South Florida from the 70's and 80's. They even used a copy of one of their old menus.

The pictures led us to believe that this place had authentic tacos. Unfortunately they are just tacos in a flour tortilla. We had the beef, steak and chicken tacos. The steak and chicken were average. Just your typical taco. We also had beans and rice. They were average as well. The chips were terrible. I would skip them! It wasn't... More
