Ordered the chicken tortilla soup and the combo platter (chicken quesadilla/beef enchilada). Soooooo good! One of the most authentic Mexican restaurants I've been to.

Lively [read that potentially loud] place tucked away in Turntable Junction. I think our highlight was the Sopa de Tortilla - broth had a nice 'strong' flavor it it. Lady had the Camarones al Mojo, which she rated good [she is becoming a harder critic than I am!]. I had a combo platter, which I really enjoyed. We finished with... More

My family and I eat at Viva Mexico regularly and love their food. Their new facility in Turntable junction is an ideal spot for terrace dining. The food is authentic and the offer creative special dishes that I would recommend.

So we were seated by a very sweet and friendly lady, all the other staff was so friendly as well. We felt welcome right away. The chips were super fresh and crunchy... More

This is real authentic Mexican food and it comes in large portions. Very pleased with the service and pricing is very reasonable. I had their salsa verde on my dinner and that was the smoothest I've had. Beautiful outdoor seating available in a small village atmosphere

We have eaten here for years, before the move to Turntable Junction. It's only gotten better. It's our favorite place to eat consistently good Mexican food. The ambiance is not as great as the food or it would have gotten 5 stars. Don't go if you want a quiet meal, go if you want amazing food and don't mind a... More

Run by a family from Oaxaca, and both the food and the service are great. We have been going there for years, mainly for lunch, and everything is reasonably priced. A very friendly atmosphere.
