I've eaten at this restaurant several times over the past few months but last night, when I took my son and friends there for a birthday dinner, we received very poor service. The wait to order was ridiculous but what happened after we got

Well I'm not a "fat white person" and I go to Viva and I love it. (Actually I am white, but not fat. At least not yet). Sounds like one of the previous reviewers is a bit of a food snob. I don't think Viva's chile rellano is the greatest either but I've been going there for 12 years and most everything on the menu is really good. You want 100% authentic? Go to Mexico. Even then, you aren't guaranteed it. Stop at a taco truck. You want Americanized Mexican food (but not the extreme of Taco Bell), go to Viva. It's great. And the waitstaff are really nice too.

Pros: Cheesy, yummy, great waitstaff

Cons: a little expensive for Burien

This place is amazing. Great prices and even better food. I love the tacitos. They have the best salsa which is homemade at location. The tortillas are fresh from the local shop just blocks away. You'll love it!

A favorite of locals, Viva Mexico is frequently crowded/busy, but that's a good sign. Every time we've have pleasant and fast service. Reasonably priced - generally walk out about $25-$30 depending on whether or not have just water or drinks. This place is good at keeping the water full. The chips have been particularly warm and fresh each time - way too easy to eat too many before the meal.

Excellent mole and camarones al mojo de ajo. No complaints yet. Adequate parking too despite being busy.

This is what people who have never had good Mexican think Mexican is about- ketchupy red sauces, piles of cheddar cheese and sour cream, and zero flavor. The clientele is white and fat- a sure sign of mediocrity. I could see how embarrased the staff was to work there when I spoke to them in Spanish. When I got my enchiladas and my friend his chile relleno, I knew why. It's almost inedible. Yuck.

The food is always great here and the staff is fantastic. If you like good novelty drinks, ask for a cucaracha. They bring it in a shot glass & ba ng it on a board to make it fizz. The whole restaurant will know what you're drinking & will sometimes cheer you on.

I love this place. It is my favority mexican place in the Seattle area. Their dishes are pretty, generous and tasty.
(Just don't order the fried ice cream... yuck! I don't think anybody had ever ordered it before me and it tasted like old freezer garlic).

I love Viva's building. There is a lot of space and a great tall ceiling in the middle of the restaurant. The food is good and the proportions are large, I can usually get two meals out of one. The service is also very friendly and it's good for people watching!
