Excellent food and frozen margarita's!! We were seated and brought chips and two dips beyond the typical salsa. All made fresh and full of flavor. The portions were all good sized and all had great flavor. Its little more expensive than some other Mexican restaurants but well worth the added cost. We will be back!!

Both locations are awesome ! This place NEVER disappoints. My favorites are chipotle fajitas or fajita enchiladas. I have nothing bad to say about this restaurant. Every time I come to McAllen it's a must to make time for Costa Messa

I have never had a bad meal here. My husband is a picky eater but loves to eat here. I don't have a favorite meal. Everything is made fresh.

We were in McAllen Texas for a month and we actually went to Coasta mesa three times. The Food is Authentic Mexican food. The Family favorite is Fajitas Tampeque, a mixture of enchilads and and fajitas that really is an abundant meal full of flavors and spicy but not Hot food. Home Tortillas are a real treat. Great Beer selection... More

If you like good food and have distinguished tastes, stay away from this place...food looked good on the plates,but it was very bad. We were 10 in our party, most of us didn't like it...

We went to the location on S. Main near La Plaza mall to meet some people there. While waiting we were treated to several birthday cakes with all the hoopla presented to persons celebrating someone's birthday. Definitely a family tradition here it seemed. We had nachos called "Panchos" here served with fajita meat (skirt steak) instead of Tex-Mex style (ground... More
