My family and I enjoyed our food and it came out quickly. Would recommend this restaurant and most of the customers were locals so you know it's good.

ordered a variety of tacos and all were lacking salt and flavor. Online menu needs to be updated. Stated sour cream on tacos but once in restaurant to pick up order, employee said does not come with and is an extra charge. Even the pico...lacked any zing.More

Absolute best Mexican food on the OBX! I eat here a few times each week and the food and service is always amazing. The restaurant including bathrooms are always spotless. A hidden gem amongst locals.

Always love stopping here. I usually visit every time I visit OBX. I will be moving to the area soon so hopefully move visits in the future.

Quick service, good variety from which to choose. A nice little pop in place if you don't want a huge Mexican meal where you always fill up on chips first....or is that just me??? Anyway, you can always judge a place by how clean the...grill area is and this ones right out there.....CLEAN! BTW, nice clean restrooms as well! Recommended by ME!!!More

Let me first say that the girls that run Viva are so nice. We have never had a bad meal here. They make everything fresh to order. We always go here while visiting the OBX.

My wife and I stopped in for some ground beef tacos and shrimp tacos. The ground beef tacos were on special... 3 and a drink for $5.99. The shrimp tacos were 3 for $7.99. Great prices and delicious food. Beer was $3.50 for a 12...ounce Dos XX. All the other prices were reasonable. Fresh Mexican food made to order when you order.More

Food was good; especially the “Platano Relleno” Even though the atmosphere was more like casual dining, the prices were of fine dining; Most of the items on the dinner menu are upwards of 10. When we went it was hot inside.

My wife, daughter and myself stopped by here to eat for lunch while on vacation. The food was surprisingly good. I ordered the Chorizo Burrito and it was good. Would have preferred it as just Chorizo but was not an option. Had to have it...with chicken or steak. Made no sense but ok.More
