Best Salsa--Great Food!

While the main reason people come here is for their Carne Asada plate, there are some other great choices on their menu! This past week, I ventured out from my typical Shredded Beef Tostada and got their crispy taquitos--one chicken and one shredded beef and they were delicious! Will definitely get... read more

We were really in the mood for some good Mexican food and ended up being bit disappointed with this restaurant. As has been said in other reviews, the ambiance is not all that great, but was of little consequence to us since what we really wanted was good food. The portions were large, but we didn't care for the flavor... More

We had a coupon card and this was one of the restaurants that gave a buy one, get one free deal. I ordered the Burrito Guadalajara, and my wife got the Taco Salad with ground beef. The burrito had three options--beef, chicken, or shrimp. I chose shrimp. The burrito was kind of pasty and average. It was huge though. My... More

My husband and I ate here this past Friday. We were seated quickly and our server approached immediately to take our drink order. Chips, salsa, and bean dip appeared as we waited for our drinks. When the drinks arrived we were ready to order. I got the combo of shredded beef chimichanga and chile relleno; hubby got two smothered chicken... More

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
