We had never been and went there due to its proximity to a friends house. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of homemade empenadas and cupcakes. We were there for lunch and for $9 you could get two empenadas a side and a drink. Each empenada had a corresponding sauce. And oh the cupcakes. That day they had 10 mini cupcakes to choose from each with a filling inside. Interior is nothing excitting but the staff was friendly and the food came quickly. They have different specials daily.

First time visiting Viva today for lunch & I ordered the Argentine Cheesesteak sandwich. It comes with grilled sirloin, chimichurri sauce, carmelized onions & cheese. You can sub the beef for chicken or for the veg heads you can order it veggie style with sauteed mushrooms & spinach. The taste was amazing & you can't beat the price. If you leave this establishment without trying one of Gaby's famous cupcakes you are really missing out! I read an article in the local paper & this restaurant tied first place for best meat and ranked #1 for those fabulous cupcakes in the Taste of Athens event. This sparked my interest & today I made the trek across town to see what all the fuss is about. I'm having a hard time reading the negative reviews & feel you owe it to yourself to give it a shot. The best part of all are the owners & staff, they really make you feel at home while you're there. Viva, I WILL be back!

The empanadas are yummy and the mashed potatoes with cheese sauce that normally comes with shepherds pie are delicious!

I have eaten here now a few times and find they have consistently excellent food - perfectly cooked beef medallions, good salads, excellent mashed potatoes and the cupcakes! You MUST get the cupcakes! There is very little atmosphere, but the service is good, prices are right and the food is terrific!
