My husband and I have been coming to this location for a long time. It took us a while to figure out what that "one dish" was for each of us that would bring us back week after week. We have tried various items on their menu and haven't been thrilled with all of them, but since we have each... More

The food was so bad and so overpriced. Three out of the four meals were only half eaten. The plates were over $10 per plate and the quality of food was so bad I feel sick to my stomach thinking about it. My younger son had a hamburger and the quality of the meat, well I don't want to think... More

We eat here at least twice per month & have for years. Love their chips, salsa & beans. Service is always great! Chimi is a favorite, chicken enchiladas are good too as are the quesadillas.

We have been going to La Costa for years. They have the best restaurant chips and salsa I have ever had. The service is usually good, and the food is delicious. Prices are decent, too, especially if you order off the side menu. A side chicken soft taco is just $1.99.

I've eaten here many, many times but I always get the same thing because it's the best: Carne Asada. Whatever secret seasoning they use on the meat is fantastic. I've tried to no avail to duplicate it at home which is why I keep coming back. They also have amazing pinto beans. Mix in the salsa with the beans and... More

I have eaten here several times with my husband's family, and have enjoyed it most of the time. I really like the taco salad and the carne asada plate. They bring you free chips and salsa and beans to eat while you wait for your food. I've never had beans with my chips and salsa and its very good. We... More

Walking along a counter ordering the things you want is a little weird, but okay. Food was very good, fresh and most of all tasty! People were friendly and very helpful. Wasn't busy when we went. Bought a salad and split it. Plenty for both of us.

This place, like most in the area, is your average Mexican restaurant. It will not blow your socks off, but they are consistent. They have a lot of choices and you will not leave hungry. The amount of food you get for your buck is good, but that is true of all the other Mexican joints in town. We go... More

We have eaten here several times. It is a nice clean family-friendly place with booth seating and friendly and fast servers. It has a large bar area. The food is fairly standard Mexican but uniformly bland and somewhat uninteresting. It's a good place to get a fast Mexican food fix at a reasonable price, but if you are looking for... More

In short the food and staff is great, but there's something about the soopapias( ok so i butchered the spelling). You got to finish of your meal with an order.
