Being that I used to work in the West End a couple of years back (when Cold Stone Creamery was in the mini plaza with Whole Foods) I had lunch from Viva Burrito in the past and recalled it being good. Now that I take my eats more seriously, I had to return to this cozy spot and confirm my memory.
Pretty fast at taking your order and quick with service Viva is great for a pit stop on a lunch break or to have a seat and relax in the Boston area.
Unable to come in person to place an order? Have no fear; if you have a pen, paper, and a fax machine handy then you can fax order over and have it waiting for you upon arrival.
Open 7 days a week with over 13 option sections to pick from on their menu, customers can experience authentic Mexican food without being bored by simplicity. I went with the Chicken Burrito containing Rice, Black Beans, Salsa Fresca, Cheese, and Grilled Chicken Breast Marinated in Fresh Garlic with Spices as the main entrée. For a snack I enjoyed chips and quac. Want something Spicy? They offer a FREE Spicy Salsa Bar!
Burrito’s range from $4.95 to $5.99. Sides are from $1.99 to $5.49. I would break down the menu further, however at this reasonable restaurant if you walk in with $20 to feed yourself you’ll leave satisfied with not only food but a beverage. They offer smoothies, sodas, and beer options. I had a soda (rare!)
My burrito was delicious. I work in a restaurant that makes burritos so it was great eating another recipe. My memory wasn’t wrong. The only thing my memory didn’t have was trying their guacamole. I was missing out!
So chunky! Well balanced with flavor. So good to say the least. I actually, at that moment remembered back to when I visited Cozumel, Mexico and had quac and chips there and it seemed pretty much the same. Awesome!
I’m not sure when I’ll return to the West End for eats, but with summer almost here I’m sure Viva can get ready to see more me, Potbelly.
