La Costa is one of our local favorites, Our dinners are always good there. The service is adequate and fast, it's not a big place but rarely do we have to wait. I usually have your typical steak Fajita, which usually is enough for 2...More

The steak fajitas lunch is only $11 and is huge. Also had the chicken with a bowl of soup. The soup had a huge portion of avocado. They also offer a lunch margarita fir $3.50. Its worth the drive!

We were starving after a long day of exploring and decided to stop at LA Costa. Very fast and friendly service and the portions were huge! We each took a box home and we are big eaters!

Been over 20 years since I started eating in this small friendly restaurant. I don't live in the area any longer but whenever I visit family it my place to go. Food is great large portions and reasonable prices. I it all.

One of the best local Mexican restaurants in the area, get there early or the line out the door will show you why. The lamb shank platter is my favorite if you haven't filled up on chips salsa and beans before your meal shows up.....More

My wife and I love La Costa, and have dinner there regularly. I can't say if it seriously authentic, but I will say it is not the bland, Americanized version usually served in local Mexican restaurants. The service is fast and friendly, and the drinks...More
