  • Kathy SWe are addicted to Viva Chicken, and think that this branch plus the one in Ballentyne are the best!

  • EricThis place is so good. Their chicken is done right. I drizzle it with the green and yellow sauce. Their plantains is also a good choice for a side. They also have delicious fried rice.

  • Jill H.Yucca fries, house salad, and 1/4 dark meat FTW! the maracuya juice is quite lovely. Stay away from herbed lemonade if you're not into "eclectic" tastes. It's heavy on the grass, mint,and basil.

    55555 by Jill H.

  • Joe M.This place is amazing. I had the 1/2 chicken and it was fall off the bone tender. The spices and taste were incredible. They had a variety of sauces. I enjoyed the hot sauce with the chicken.
