    Great staff, normal tequila, and amazing knowledge of what’s GF. If you like Mexican, highly recommend.

    Menu states everything is gluten free except flour tortilla and beer. In reality they fry Thor chips and hard taco shells in a shared fryer. They disclosed about the chips right away. They didn't disclose about the hard shells until our order was half made. We had all order hard taco shells. They switched to soft corn but we all got sick anyway. They don't seem to understand safe food handling or allergies. This is gluten free for those without a medical problem.

    I like Viva a lot, and for a while was going there frequently. The menu and waitstaff emphasize that all menu items are GF w/ the exception of the flour tortillas and the beer. I have always requested that gloves be changed when my food is made and indicated that it is a medical issue for me. Unfortunately, the last three or four times that I ate at Viva, I was ill afterwards with no other identifiable source. I love the restaurant, and would totally continue going if they were able to work out their processes to prevent cross-contamination, but can't risk it again.
