Run by a family from Oaxaca, and both the food and the service are great. We have been going there for years, mainly for lunch, and everything is reasonably priced. A very friendly atmosphere.

First visit and we were impressed by the fresh good, friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. I somehow dropped my wallet and did not realize until the next morning. It was found by person cleaning table and returned to us intact. Had to drive 40 minutes to go back and get it but it was worth it as we got have... More

I've eaten at Viva Mexico several times and never have had a bad meal. The staff always greets you with a smile, the service is usually efficient and the food is good, but not great. It's a good place to go if you have a larger group (make a reservation). It is a BYO establishment, they will open your bottles... More

Nice setting, interesting decor. A good basic menu at reasonable prices, but I've had the best, if not fabulous, experiences with the specials! Without exception they have been interesting, well constructed or cooked and delicious!

This is a very good Mexican restaurant. They have a pretty big variety and always have some nice specials. But have to say that the pork tenderloin and the chicken chile relieno is our favorites. Both are very reasonably priced. They serve warmed tortilla chips with some of the best salsa around.

Not in a great location. Hard to find but worth the effort. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Chicken enchiladas and chicken fajitas were super delicious. The guacamole, salsa, and chips were also very good. Great little BYOB place. Will definitely be back!

The food is great, I have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is cheery, cute, and clean. The servers have always been really nice. The only negative is the extra charge for mor chips, but they are really good, so it's always worth the price for a second basket. So glad, this restaurant is in flemington, it's a Favorite!

Very good, authentic Mexican food. Everything is reasonably priced, everything was fresh and the service was very good. Most of the tables were filled when we entered which is usually a good sign of a good restaurant.

I don't know why it took us so long to try this place but I'm do glad we did. We've never had a bad meal and the salsa is great! It's a BYOB so bring some red wine and OJ and make your own Sangria and you have a party. I guarantee you'll be back.
