I thought the food was good but my husband said it had no seasoning. Nice outdoor seating but they were short on staff so asked us to eat inside. They are very stingy on the chips and salsa (given 15 chips for the two of us), you pay for a refill. Probably won't go back.

It is simple folks, there is no any good mexican restaurant around Flemington or Clinton or Lebanon or Annandale or Somerville. First of all we ordered 1 diet coke and 1 sprite. They were not cold. If you can't serve alcohol to people and if you have to serve only soft drinks you have to keep them cold. We ordered... More

I dine at Viva Mexico at least once ever two weeks. The best carne aseda I have ever tasted and I have tried it in many places (CA, TX, NYC). Service is polite, friendly, and professional. The atmosphere is very relaxing. It is a BYOB and we generally bring wine, but I believe they provide mixers.

We just found our favorite Mexican restaurant! The combination plate with mole sauce was delicious. My wife had the enchiladas with red sauce. There was a live band too. Very friendly and good service. The portion was large enough where neither of us had room for dessert. We absolutely cannot wait to go back.

I have been a patron to Viva Mexico for 8 years. Sense they have opened their new location they have screwed up my order 5 times. I even ask them to repeat the order sense I have come to expect this.

My family has been frequenting this establishment for 2 years and the food remains consistently good however the cost and service are deteriorating. The price goes up and now they add automatic gratuity of 20% on our bill for a family of 5 meanwhile the service is mediocre at best. I suppose they know this and that's why they automatically...

This gem of a restaurant is located in Turntable Junction. The restaurant is colorful and comfortable. The service is quick and friendly. The salsa is the best in Flemington... nice and spicy ... and you can get an order to go. We have tried many of the dishes and I have not heard a complaint about them... only praise.

I didn't like Mexican food before visiting Viva. Now it's one of my favorite places to eat. The wait staff is friendly and prompt and the food never disappoints!

My husband and I order the same meal every time...chicken fajita for him and steak fajita for me. They are really tasty. Chips and guacamole are very good. Salsa has too many onions to be enjoyable. Lunch offers the best value.
