Great food great ambiance

The food was as good as they say it was, had their speciality ribs and they were very very juicy and well flavoured the portions are good and the price is OK for the place, the empanadas are also really delicious I recommend that you try them but don't eat too much you won't have space for the ribs.

Great place for Mexican food. They have menu in Spanish, English, and Japanese. They are known for ribs which you can pick different sauce to eat with. Great place for business dinner. Great frozen margarita as well.

I have been in many occasions and notice that the quality of the the meat and the service has lower, even do it has expand around as a business. There are many other options around the same area and much better. Nevertheless it does worth eating there from time to time.

Subsequent visit not as good. Loud inappropriate music. Waiter gives the impression he'd rather be someplace else. Signature pork ribs were so-so as were the sauces. Screaming, unruly toddlers at next table were unbearable but we can't blame that on Las Costillas.

Service is slow, the live music is too loud and the waiters can't hear what you're ordering, they're so slow that the food gets cold or dries up before they serve it. This used to be a really nice place but management is nowhere to be seen.

One of the best places in town. Obviously you have to try the ribs “Costillas”, as the name suggests it is the houses’ specialty. Aguascalientes has two restaurants; both are great and are guaranteed. Service, food quality and price are fine.

When we visit Aguascalientes we come here for their Ribs snd we never go home disappointed. My family likes going to the main location on Universidad because the portions are more generous and its less crowded than the San Marcos Fair location.

Good Decoration and atmosphere, Clean with regular service and attention. Good Food, specialty is Rack of Grilled Ribs, Tortilla Aztec Soup is very good. Expensive, Far from Outstanding. You will not be dissapointed, Cost-Quality Ratio is Ok.

I went to Las costillas on a Sunday, it was full but nothing extreme. the food was very good... i tied the Tacos de Chicharron (ask for it "a las brasas") and it was excellent. then i asked for a rack of ribs (the specialty) i asked with 2 sauces BBQ (excellent) and Pastor (didn't liked). they have home made...

I am from Aguascalientes and we know this place is nice but a bit expensive. Don't go to the one at San Marcos, way overpriced, the food is not good and the service less than OK. Go to the one at north or south, you will have nice time, the food will be good and the atmosphere great to stay.
