    Love this spot, the chips they serve should be called "crack chips." The margaritas are perfect along with great food.

    It has changed a lot over the many years. Not for the better. Food and service have both declined while prices have increased. There's always Mi Madres!

    Great Margaritas. Beautiful deck with tons of foliage and a water fall. Get a seat next to it! Indoors has really large screens at the bar and it's a great place to watch games. Awesome spot.

    Vivo offers an impressive selection of specialty margaritas flavored with everything from tamarind to hibiscus; our favorite is the Cucumber Margarita.

    If you're doing the Cali nachos as an entree, don't let your server talk you into getting a full order, it's WAY too much food. Go for the half.

    Do yourself a favor and request their amazing homemade corn tortillas when you, you've never had anything like them before! Also can't go wrong w/ their tortilla soup! (bowl not cup of course)

    Here's a tip: go somewhere else. Three bad experiences in a row. Condescending hostess and painfully slow service.

    Best corn tortillas you have tasted in your whole life, & you can quote me on that! Not the regular ones, specifically ask them for an order of the "homemade corn tortillas". You're welcome!

    Bartender chick seems a bit menstrual! I really like this place but service is very important to me. She must not want her tip. Don't sit at the bar!

    I rarely go out of my way for vegetarian dishes, but the California nachos are the bomb. I wouldn't ruin them with meat. Throw in a cucumber margarita with black sea salt and your set.

    Mango margarita is wonderful. A coating of Mango purée coats the inside of the goblet. No extra sugar. Outstanding!

    Reserve the private and very sexy back room and then take bets as to how many people will walk in looking for the bathroom (also sexy). We're at fifteen right now!

    Overall it was a pretty average meal. They do a nice job with their tomatillo enchiladas. Their puffy taco with picadillo was pretty bland and their salsa was a bit too heavy with ground onion.
