Quick bite at lunch or before event at Boston Garden

I enjoy getting relatively healthy food quickly. The burritos are all delicious for mostly under $10. No table service, but that is fine for the times I want good food quick. Tables turn over quickly so you do not have to worry there won't be a table by the time you get your food.

We've been fans of Viva Burrito for 19 years. Although we don't live in Boston anymore, we still stop by when in the area to get our Viva Burrito fix. The burritos are SOOO much better than anything offered by Chipotle or other chains. The service is friendly and quick, burritos are HUGE, there are plenty of menu options (well... More

Passed by to this restaurant and noticed its fully packed and with long line of people at the counter. I decided to make it a try and join the queue. I ordered burrito steak in a plate.Their serving was generous.The ingredients used were all fresh and healthy, and the taste is authentic Mexican(it should be because the cooks are mexican)....

They do a great job making healthy dishes with fresh ingredients! Personally I like the vegetable quesadilla, beef tacos and the chicken salad (fresh fajita vegetables and chicken over a bed of salad). Chips and salsa are a yummy treat. They deliver as well!

This place has the freshest food and ingredients. I usually roll with the chicken enchiladas as they are delicous. The self serve salsa bar is great and always fresh. Gets busy exactly at noon but before then or after is great time to go.

I've been going to Viva Burrito for lunch every month(2x's). Great food. I have the grilled chicken taco salad. So yummy. I hate beans, so they substitute rice instead. Convenient location. (Right across from my work) and if you order online... you not only earn points towards free items,but you can just hit a button to reorder the same thing... More

My husband and I stopped there for a quick lunch after an appointment in the area. I had enchiladas, and he had a burrito. They were served very quickly and were surprisingly good for a Mexican fast-food restaurant. We beat the noon rush when it got quite busy. I would go back.

Went to Viva Burrito today while visiting Boston.. Honestly wish we had gone else where but this is only because I am not a huge burrito fan. I wish I had tried their quesadilla instead but none the less I got a chicken, rice, and cheese burrito and ate a bit less than half before just picking out the chicken... More

Had the Viva Fresh Salmon Salad and Chicken soup with vegetables. The salmon and veggies was simple and tasty. The soup, on the other hand, delicious! It's basically a homemade chicken noodle soup. Would definitely come again.

Viva burrito is really tasty. Definitely not the best in the area, but none the less, very good! If you're into it, they even have some untraditional burrito options (lamb w/ tsatziki, for one). Fyi, expect a hefty line around lunch time.
