Great For Gluten Free

I do find Costa Vida expensive for what it is, that being said we keep going back as they have gluten free alternatives for my daughter. If you tell them it's an allergy they will even prepare the food on a separate area to avoid cross-contamination. The service is often slow so don't plan on... read more

My cousin took me here. Said I just had to try this Mexican restaurant. It was excellent, excellent. Great food and very friendly and helpful staff. We had a special which was a sweet pork burrito and then you pick the toppings. They were good about offering a taste cup with sauces to pick when I wan't sure. Also had... More

if you are looking for good food for value. This is the place to go. Staff are always smiling and seem to like working there. I usually have a chicken enchilada and the wife looks the chicken soup. They have brought in more Mexican type drinks and menu items. This is a western Mexican place so nothing is spicy.

My hubby and I eat here at least once a week! After picking up our order on Friday, we hit it home and portion size was about 1/3 of what it usually is. I'm never one to call and complain but because we're such regulars, I called! The manager (female name started with a K?!) was beyond amazing and apologetic!... More

I eat here weekly, that's how much I LOVE this place! My two favourite dishes Pulled Pork Salad and Sweet Pork Burrito. You will go home feeling stuffed! The food is always fresh. The service is great! The value and prices are good. By far the best restaurant in Airdrie!

Delicious food, great portion sizes, fresh guac, easy take out and friendly staff. Watched them make the tortillas fresh and I think it makes it taste even better :)

Where have I been all my airdrie life? This place is fabulous. Each tortilla is freshly made as you order. I had the grilled chicken burrito. It was perfect. Friendly staff. Attractive building. Will be returning for sure!

This is by far the most excellent food....my favourite go to! I would say that while it cannot be confused with " authentic" Mexican food it is by far the most delicious take on what I might call Californian/Mexican food. I love the sweet pork tacos. ( they make the tortillas right in front of you hot off the press)..... More

Finally a Mexican Restaurant that is fast and the food isn't out of some greasy pail. Have been twice as well as some friends and the food is fresh flavorful and the staff is great. This is a must try for anyone who appreciates fresh food. Even though it could be considered a fast food outlet, lots of seating and... More
