Local Favorite - Viva Chicken

I still remember the first time I ever tried Viva Chicken. It was at the Elizabeth Ave. location after a 4 mile run and I was absolutely starving. We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed our meal. After that visit, I knew I would be returning. 

At another visit, while standing in line to order, my party got into a conversation about how many locations there were. I did a quick google search and found three in Charlotte and one in...Utah? I was curious. A manager stopped by our table to ask us how everything was, so while he was standing and chatting with us, I asked him which location was the first and what was the story behind the one random Utah location. He explained that the company started on Elizabeth Ave, and opened their second and third locations in Ballantyne and Huntersville. Their vision is to eventually expand more out west, and found an investor to help them achieve this goal! Hence, the Utah location. I say the more people with Viva Chicken in their life, the better. 

Would you believe their charcoal fired oven is hand built and imported from Lima, Peru? You guys, this place is legit. And final tip? Be sure to order the passion fruit juice (made daily in house!) and I promise you won't be sorry you did.
