I had a chile relleno with rice and beans. The beans were pretty good, typical of Mexican restaurants, hard to get wrong.

Had dinner the other night. We have eaten here 4 times. Always a disappointment. Lousy food, untrained staff. Dumpster diving would be an upgrade. Stay away if you have a fuctioning pallet. We are done with this place.

I have eaten fajitas from here to mexico and this place is by far the best I've ever had, the fresh vegetables and spices combined with your choice of meats are unbelievable.

Viva Maria's has really good Mexican food and lots of it. Their chips and salsa is really good, too. If you go in the bar area, you can get free food during happy hour along with drink specials. The margaritas are yummy!!! Great service, too!

There's a great selection of Mexican restaurants in the area, but I come to Viva Maria often. Great food and service. Excellent Sunday brunch and taco Tuesday in the bar area. Friendly staff and cozier interior than you'd expect from the parking lot.

I had chicken fajitas...they were very good. First they give you complimentary chips and salsa. Choice of hot or medium salsa. The fajitas came out smoking hot with plenty of chicken and peppers and onions.
