I've been coming to Viva Rancho Cantina for years. I love Mexican food but what really draws me is the vibe. The decor and the feel is like going back in time. It has a Western theme, which is appropriate as it is right next...More

Very good bar with a nice Tequila selection, as well as Mexican beers. The food and service was excellent and the atmosphere was lot's of fun. It appears that they can handle larger parties.

Visited here for dinner and drinks recently. It has a great atmosphere inside. The food was great but even better are the drinks. Don’t judge the atmosphere by the outdoor looks of everything. There is a nice patio outside which we spent some time on.

Situated at the LA Equestrian Center VivaCantina's main calling card is live music. The music varies from bluegrass to Mexican. The building is in need of an overhaul. On our visit the men's room was quite dirty with plugged up; and, overflowing toilets. The windows...More

BUT THE FOOD AND DRINKS ARE GREAT! Went in because I saw all these police cars parked outside and figured if they're eating there, it must be good and it was.
