Good Food

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.

I visit Viva Burrito quite often. They give you a quality and quantity burrito. Something you usually only get 1 or the other at most places. Once you experience the taste of a Burrito from here you will never eat at Q-Doba or Chipotle ever again.

The only Mexican feel is the decor and some of the beer. I appreciate the fresher food but the flavors just don't work. Ordered veggie nachos, chicken burrito, la noche salad, and a carnitas burrito plate. Also throw in Some salsas, a wine, and a beer. Burrito is ok, the plate tasted more like Indian food, the salad missed with... More

I come to Boston every 2-3 months for medical treatment and I try to get to Viva Burrito at least once every visit. I usually order the "Traditional Steak Burrito". This is a 10 inch flour tortilla filled with rice, black beans, salsa fresca and cheese. I usually ask to go lite on the rice and beans. This burrito is... More

Went for a quick lunch after van appointment. Very busy place. I am not impressed with the food especially the presentation. Felt we overpaid for what we got.

Food made fresh, many of the soups are home made. One of the places I enjoy when I need a quick bite to eat that is relatively healthy. Love the taco salads!

Viva Burrito is one of the few restaurants that has been around for over 10 years in Boston in the same location. Some people go there everyday! It's just that good. While they have vegetarian options, they also provide very reasonable quantities of grilled steak or chicken in their burritos. It's a great place to eat after working out. You... More
