We are here based on TripAdvisor reviews. We are early so it was not crowded. It took about 15 minutes before someone came to take our order. She acted very uninterested. We had to ask twice for our drinks and even though the menu said...More

The food is great and authentic, which seems hard to find in Northern California. Very good menu with a large variety of selections. The atmosphere is like a big Sunday Family Dinner with everyone talking at once. So, if you're looking for something quiet and...More

Good food, great salsa! Authentic Mexican food, enchiladas are my test dish, and La Costa passed! Fresh iced tea, that's a big plus. A good selection of Mexican beer, and it is open until 9.
