We were here for work, and looking for a great place to escape for some good food and great drinks. Via Real did not disappoint! Everyone from the host to the bus boy gave us 100% attention. They made sure we had a relaxing and delicious experience. The food was fresh and had the right amount of spice. The sommelier kept us hopping with a beautiful Monastrell after a solid start on margaritas. Fran even came by to make us East coasters feel welcome. Solid." Michelle S, New York, NY

My favorite thing to get is their Mexican chicken soup. It comes with your choice or tortillas and Mexican rice. Geez, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. The soup is so comforting and delicious to the very last drop. I may just have to pay a visit again sometime this week.
