Just good food - for about 70 years!

Vivi's has been in the same spot forever. Homey atmosphere, home cooked burgers, sandwiches and falafels + James Dean posters on the wall. Great value.

This place has pretty good falafels and a great home-like atmosphere. The people are nice and the prices are reasonably good. Only drawback is that they are cash only so make sure to bring some cash to pay for your meal(s).

Ambiance Big bright space with timeworn walls. Tables that would grace a 60's kitchen. Booths kinda worn. Service Fine. But then again, I've been going to Vivi's for 20 some odd years so they know me. Food The best falafel in the Silicon Valley for me. I've tried the rest, and Vivi's is the best for me. Fresh ingredients, never... More

Okay, so it is kind of a dive. And the service is not super-friendly, although we were greeted by a man who seemed to be the manager or owner and he was friendly. But the burger on a french roll, the fries, and the iced tea were very good, which is why I gave it a very good rating. One... More

Not sure why some of the reviewers would expect 5 star service at a hamburger joint? Had the Deluxe burger and fries, both of which were great. My sister had the 'Nature Burger'...we're guessing it was the same mix as their falafel, but made into a burger. It looked wonderful and she said it tasted as good as it looked.... More

All these reviews that read "Worst Customer Service Ever" are so true. It seems like a mom and pop place. The kind of mom and pop you'd like to runaway from. I just stopped by to try this place and tried ordering a large pizza. I had mistakenly given the lady $25 instead of $20 and when she returned $5.50... More

The cheese burger and falafel are the main attractions. A local place that is a little on the dirty side, some might say a dive; the food is just okay. Reasonably priced for what you get.

When you are in the mood for good "dive" food in this part of Silicon Valley give Vivi's a try. This place has been an institution for many years in Cupertino. The falafel are excellent, served mild or spicy in fresh pita bread. My daughters always get burgers and give two thumbs up. My personal favorite is the Bulgarian beef.... More

Went here for lunch. Warning - highly rude, disrespectful and demeaning older Asian woman working the register. Ruined the experience. Cash only. Place is a dump.

Places like Vivi's tend to get a wide range of reviews, some fall in love with them, some can't stand them. If you know more-or-less what to expect, you can be very happy here. I met some friends for lunch and I had a deluixe falafel. It was one of the better falafels I've had in a while (maybe not... More
