Best authentic Mexican food in New Jersey. Love the fun atmosphere. One of our favorite places to bring friends who are visiting. The food is wonderful and the staff are pleasant. Definitely must stop by for a great meal and fun night.

Very good, authentic Mexican food. Everything is reasonably priced, everything was fresh and the service was very good. Most of the tables were filled when we entered which is usually a good sign of a good restaurant.

I don't know why it took us so long to try this place but I'm do glad we did. We've never had a bad meal and the salsa is great! It's a BYOB so bring some red wine and OJ and make your own Sangria and you have a party. I guarantee you'll be back.

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
