The ambience here is casual, relaxed, vibrant, and friendly, and most of the time this translates to great food at reasonable prices. Just fyi… this place started filling up after 1 pm for brunch.

My first time at Taqueria Viva Mexico for Brunch, I ordered Chilaquiles with Red Sauce. It was delicious and portions were generous.
Look at the egg yolk semi-oozing out and the red sauce all soaked into the fried corn tortillas. Delicioso!
My husband opted for the Chicken Enchiladas with Green Sauce. The grilled chicken was tender and flavorful, and he most certainly did enjoy his dish.
We ended with a cup of American Coffee, unfortunately they don't serve Mexican Coffee here.
And we split the famous Tres Leches (3 milk cake) which was heavenly. The cake was all soaked up with milk, but it wasn’t drenched and soggy. Definitely one of the most delicious Tres Leches I have had to date.
On another occasion with my friend, I enjoyed 3 soft tacos for dinner:
left - Pescado Taco (grilled tilapia) – good & healthy, but slightly bland.
center - Pollo Enchilado Taco (grilled Cajun chicken) - excellent, loads of flavor, chicken was perfectly spiced.
right - Vegetales Taco (grilled vegetables) - good, healthy, but if you eat meat, skip this.
My friend, Sweta, had a Vegetable Burrito in a bowl, she’s so healthy. Loved the flavorful Mexican rice and the wide array of colors on this dish.
OVERALL: 4.5 / 5
I can confidently say most dishes at Taqueria Viva Mexico are delicious. The food here is authentic, and not overly greasy with tons of cheese. The waiters are nice and offer assistance with any questions you may have. I particularly loved the Chilaquiles, Pollo Cajun Taco, and Tres Leches w/Coffee. Next time though, I would love to try their Huevos Rancheros, Nachos Rancheros, and Guacamole – something tells me their guac will be amazing. Ideally, it would be nice if Taqueria served alcohol, but with food this good, you probably don’t even need liquor. Boy I'm just so glad they deliver for days I'm lazy to cook!
