Good food, good service and good people - can you ask for much more? Great place to pop in for lunch or sit down for a low key dinner date. Usually pretty fast to get orders out so worth going even in a time crunch. Always clean and comfortable inside or on the patio. A go to spot, for sure!
Great service. Great food. As I waited I watched the team communicate with each other regarding the status of orders as they were being prepared. Very streamlined and effective. The employee that helped me was so friendly and explained the different drinks that are offered. Unfortunately, I cannot remember her name. It seemed like she may have been the mgr. or lead because she had a commanding presence. Always a great experience at Viva Lu
Ive only visited a Viva Chicken restaurant twice previously, once was about 5 years ago, and the other was about a year ago. Both times were for takeout. Considering the length of time between visits, I felt unfamiliar with the menu. Today (7/13/2022), we chose to dine-in due to timing . The GM, Marcus, was running one of the registers. He was incredibly helpful (and patient!) in assisting me with selecting a meal for my 22 mo old grandson, even during the busy lunch rush. He explained the childrens menu options, and he even made a suggestion of which may be easier for him to eat independently. Very thoughtful. He also explained the different salad options for me, and he helped me to make a selection based on the items I mentioned I did not want. As I mentioned, our visit was was during the busy, work week lunch rush, but I felt like I was the only customer in line - did not feel rushed at all. In the dining room, Ms. Vernice assisted us. She offered to retrieve to-go boxes for us and even came back to assist us a couple more times. She was kind, personable, and took just the right amount of time with us. Overall, we had an excellent experience and will definitely return if we are once again in the area. With the continued staff shortages and sometimes seemingly rude service (from those who are almost certainly overworked and under paid, so its understandable),, this was a refreshing experience that I will not soon forget. Thank you, Viva Chicken - Ballantyne (on Copper Way)!
We love this place!! Everything is so fresh and delicious! The portions are huge. We got the Tacu bowl and Arroz Chauffa. Both came out super fast and were hot and fresh! We always enjoy eating here! I also got the purple corn and cinnamon based juice...which paired perfectly with my Tacu bowl! Yummmm
The food and sauces tasted great and was filling! Extremely quick serving and nice staff
