Cooking staff were very quick and efficient in food preparation. The dining area is always kept clean and it is generally pretty quiet. We go there once... More

It is nice to go through the line and pick out which ingredients you want on your food. I didn't find the food exceptional, but it was adequate and easy.

This place is small but excellent service is provided each and every time. I usually have the sweet pork nachos and they never disappoint. Their staff is quick on your order.

Excellent Mexican food. You basically make your own and request exactly what you'd like on your choice of meal.

Great food. We needed to feed a large group on short notice and Costa Vida was recommended. We ordered the tacos for ten with all the fixings. The price was reasonable and the food was great. The food was ready for pick-up on time and they even provided all the plates, flatware, and serving utensils. I would definitely recommend Costa... More

Loved the guacamole and main dishes but the frijoles are like soup. The chips are not as good as some places
