I don't want to tell anyone that this is the best Mexican restaurant in town because they will get even busier! The margaritas are the very very best!! Love la costa!!

What a great find! Fantastic menu, with many more options than you normally see at a Mexican restaurant. Prices are good and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Do not let the location or outside appearance deter you. The warm bean dip that comes with the tortilla chips before the meal is a bit too good! Very easy to... More

A very good place for Mexican. Super good menu with lots of choices for all your favorites. It's my parents once a week treat for many years. I love it to. The Carne assada is my favorite. There beans and rice are fantastic. It's my other go to order with flour tortillas. The drinks could be a little stronger but... More

We have been customers at La Costa for over 10 years and this is our fall-back if we can't decide where to go. This has continued to be a regular for us even though we have moved to the other side of the valley. We always enjoy it, the food is consistently good and we feel the prices are right.... More

Huge menu, generous portions, and terrific staff. Located in a strip mall in central Burien, but don't let that deter you!

I was traveling on business so as a party of one, I sat at the bar. I was promptly waited on, brought out chips and salsa. My entree came out quickly and it was HUGE! It was very good. As an added bonus, they had a 5 person mariachi band playing. It was loud, but it was fun. If I... More

I love that we have an authentic Mexican restaurant in Burien! The food is really great and the general manager, Hilda is very friendly! My only complaint if I had to have one...is the portions have gotten smaller (which could be considered a good thing) and the prices have gotten larger.. But, all in all..I'll definitely be going back!

This continues to be a solid leader in the over-crowded Burien Mexican restaurant field. Cheese enchildas remain my favorite, but lots of good options on this menu including lamb.

I was hoping that La Costas would be a step above many of the other restaurans in Burien, unfortunately this was not the case. There are many better mexican food options in the Burien area. It wasnt horrible but I wont be going back any time soon. However, if you like amerianized mexican food this might be the place for... More
