“Ho Hum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Terrible service, mediocre food. Same price for a plain cheese quesadilla as a full burrito meal. Won't return.

“Fresh Mexican Fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

I love eating here and from the looks of it so do many others, as there are always people in the dining room. You order your food from a line and they make it cooked to order. I love the fish tacos, and shrimp salad, with black beans!

“Gateway location is wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Costa Vida is a bit hidden at the Gateway complex, but, it's worth finding. I was so happy to see our tortillas being made fresh for us as we entered the restaurant! The portions are generous and the prices are right. Being from New Mexico, I was skeptical at first. I was pleasantly surprised by the fresh additions to the burritos and the salad options. The service is friendly and there is a nice sunny outside seating area. You'll find lots of vegetarian choices here and a knowledgeable, helpful staff. .
