What a treat! Authentic Mexican food, hustling atmosphere and friendly staff. The Carne Asada is spot on! The kids get a kick out of the Mexican soda as well. We have never been disappointed. Go early or call for a reservation - the locals know this spot and it gets CROWDED! we walked in at 6:15, sat without a problem... More

Most of the time a good meal--occasional rocky. Love the combo plate with enchalida, chilie rellano. Salads are a pass.

We have eaten here for years, before it moved into its current location, and now at its current location. The food is consistently tasty. The menu doesn't change much over the years, but there are good choices, good prices, and everything is very flavorful. I love the watercress salad - need to figure out how to make that dressing at... More

My husband and I have eaten here several times. The food has been good and service is always pleasant. However, on a few occasions, there was only one server. She did a good job but, of necessity, there were longer wait times for service. Also had to remind her that we did not have napkins.

We go to Viva Mexico (not Viva Mexican) at least twice a month. Since they moved from off of Main Street over a year ago, they have more space and the new building is newer and decorated beautifully. The tables are hand made solid pieces of hardwood made by that guy you see on Main Street in Frenchtown. It's clean... More

Started going to Viva Mexico when they were located across from Little Brothers liquor store. Best salsa & chips! Even better is the chicken quesadilla, which is not cheap, but worth every bite. I get take out for the family any chance I can. I was able to talk the guys at work into going at lunch time. They devoured... More

This is not the TexMex i love sometimes but it is what I would consider authentic Mexican food. Good quality, fresh simple sauces and the best Chicken Soup anywhere. I love the salsa, its a little spicy and the guacamole is awesome. Up for a little something different, try the whole fish in garlic sauce for dinner! I have never... More

Viva Mexico recently agreed to graciously welcome 14 students from Germany. The kids enjoyed complimentary chips, salsa and drinks. Thank you very much for your hospitality Viva Mexico! The kids really enjoyed their visit!! BTW - my family has always enjoyed our meals here! We love the fajitias and the friendly atmosphere.

I wish I could give this restaurant five stars. Ambiance is nice. The staff friendly. Service was slow and the restaurant far from full. Now to the food- black bean soup tasty but too thick, like paste. The chicken fajitas were delicious. My son's combo platter was good. My mom ordered the fish of the day, eh, certainly not worth...

Went in for lunch and sat outside at their tables. I have no issue at all with the food and found it tasty, but I placed an order for guacamole, reminded the waitress when the food arrived, but never received it with my meal or at all. Had to ask twice for my beverage as well. Maybe the waitress was... More
