Fodor's Review

Locals-favorite Viva Mercado's, by longtime local restaurateur Bobby Mercado, features 12 house-made salsas and a well-executed seafood-heavy menu. Dishes include shrimp and nopales salad; tostadas with shrimp, langostino, tilapia and avocado; and Ensenada-style fried fish tacos, plus offerings including steak picado and veggie fajitas.

Bobby's Hot

Mercados is my favorite dining spot when in Vegas. Several times bobby Mercado the owner has come by and sat and told jokes and made sure we were happy with the food and service. The food is fresh, the drinks great and the staff aims to please. My favorites: Chiles Relienos followed by the Bunuelo 43 -cinnamon crisps topped with Flambe liquor 43.
