My favorites are... More

I loooooove the steak and shrimp burrito. It's kind of expensive for a burrito, but I think it's worth it. They've got a variety that you won't find at any of the chains. Plus they serve beer. The one downside is that the place gets crazy during weekday lunch or before events at the Boston Garden. They're somewhat inefficient and... More

This is a hidden jewel of Mexican Food. The food is excellent in taste and worth trying when in the area. Food is prepared well and fresh. Sauces are excellent. Must try!

I just had what was not only the best burrito I have ever had but probably the best edible thing I have ever had. Chicken and Lamb Burrito with Jalepenos and spinnach. Unbeliveable. You will Not finda better burrito anywhere

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)....

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.

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.
