La Costa always delivers on quality. Casual dining and authentic tastes. Our family goes there frequently for lunch and dinner.

I have been eating at this restaurant since 95 when it was just a shack on the side of the road. The food continues to be excellent. Although, prices have gone up since they moved into the restaurant building, La Costa continues to be very affordable and portion sizes continue to be good. When we have had people visiting from...

I went there with my son for lunch. The line goes very quickly. The burritos are huge. You get a lot for your money! They even have a side bar where you can take your condiments to go. Very enjoyable

A local hangout, great food and reasonably priced. This is an authentic Mexican restaurant. Years ago they started from a food truck and over time have expanded to two restaurants. Well worth your $.

If you are looking for atmosphere, this aint the place, but if you are looking for really good authentic Mexican food at a reasonable price, this is one of the best. No frills...no

I used to love coming to this place when it was a little shack outside. Since they have moved the food quality has gone down a little bit. They still have good food but it used to be better. I miss the shack.

For many years one of the best authentic Mexican food I've ever had. Very reasonably priced. When I first went there 25 years ago it was a little converted hot dog stand. Now it's a nice sized restaurant. To go is a huge business. I always have either of the meats in a quesadilla and get a couple of tacos... More
