I doubt I would have ever stopped here if it wasn't for my cousin (who lives nearby). The place looks terrible and run down... but the food is spectacular and they are always busy! I wish they improved the look, but maybe that would ruin the charm and surprise! If you like Mexican and/or Greek, you've got to give it... More

This place is very off putting from the outside but the Mexican food is great! They have recently added California style burritos that are awesome! I also love the price even the cheap dollar burritos are great! I like the rice and bean burrito and their chipotle chicken is very good too. Love this place, so happy to have it... More

We stopped by Taco Viva based on the reviews on here, which are mostly very positive. I think I get my hopes up too high sometimes based on the reviews, which I need to stop doing because the majority of the time, I end up being disappointed. I can sum this place up by saying it's just okay. It certainly... More

What a great little shop. Drive through, sit in or sit outside. Clean, fresh made while you wait, authentic Mexican food. My sombrero is off to this place. Inexpensive and so much better than "taco belch." Stop in and get filled up on their specials and then have a dip or two of ice cream when youre done.

Just had dinner from this little Mexican restaurant. I ordered 2 chicken tacos, nachos and cheese, a side of rice and the burritos combo for my boyfriend I. Unfortunately when we got home we were missing the nachos n cheese. The chicken tacos were ok, felt like they needed a pico or something. Boyfriend liked the burritos just fine. Overall... More

My husband and I see this small place when we drive by and think about stopping but never do. Today we changed that and we're glad we did. The place is not great looking outside and inside. I ordered 3 carnitas. My husband decided to try the enchilada and dorado platter. I liked my carnitas. A serving of one carnita... More

Loved this little roadside shack. Soft tacos were fabulous and two can eat for under$10. Check it out for lunch.

We live nearby & heard some great comments about this "hole in the wall" place. Wife had the chicken tamales & she rated them as outstanding. My two fish tacos were equally as good. Very fresh & tasty ingredients. The prices are more than reasonable & the staff (presumably male owner) was knowledgable, courteous & helpful. Will return ASAP. This... More

I would go here once a week usually, when living in Fort Myers. The food is cheap (price wise) and very fresh. I came to eventually know the owner and once he took me back in the kitchen to show me how they were making the different sauces that day. The fresh Mango juice is a must when visiting. Also...
