The South Ogden, Utah location provides consistent service and quality food. They make a very good smothered burrito and I really enjoy their sweet pork salad. If you had a bad experience at another location, I'd say give this one a try.

This review is for the Costa Vida in Downtown Ogden, not on Skyline. First time I ate here I got food poisoning. 2 years later, company lunch was at Costa Vida, thought i'd give it a second chance. Service was horrible, pre ordered they said 40 mins got there at 33 mins, paid and waited another 30 mins. Got the... More

Although I do prefer Cafe Rio, Costa Vida is also delicious. It can sometimes be a bit hit-and-miss: some nights they are generous with portions, quick, and super friendly, others they can skimp on the meat and they are in no mood to offer a smile, or a friendly word. But, overall, I still frequent this place.

We all love the food at Costa Vida. It is always fresh and made right before your eyes. You can decide what goes on your plate. It is a great bargain and fun to eat at.

The staff are always great, helpful and seem to want to do their job well. the food is fresh and quite good. for the price, this has a high "bang to your buck" value.

This is another must eat if in the area. They have the signature sweet pork buritto but they scrimp on the rice and beans. Great service and ambiance.

I love every item on the menu, save the fish tacos, which I have not yet been brave enough to try. My major complaint about Costa Vida as a whole is that you can not get any detailed or specific nutrition information. This is a nagging and lingering concern for me every visit. If their chain would release the information,... More

Great pork salads, quesadillas, and burritos. The ranch dressing is fabulous. The small salads are usually enough good for me!

Marring what would otherwise be an outstanding rating for me is the propensity for mothers to let their kids come here and act like they are at the McDonalds playland. They sit gossiping away not minding their children at all. The food is awesome, better than a Cafe Rio or Bajio's. If only they would build a large box filled... More
