I've been several times, never disappointed, but this lunch was special. Back room in the old ice house has the feel of old Mexican like Alvera St. Beef fajita has excellent flavor with nice presentation, enough for 2 plus left overs. Salsa has great flavor but not spicy enough for me, so I ordered El Diablo. Total disappointment (milder than... More

Maybe its the décor, I love the ambiance of dining in old industrial buildings, but despite other good Mexican restaurants in town, this has become my first choice for Mexican. The menu offers some interesting twists on traditional fare and well as the old standards. I usually order seafood and it is always cooked perfectly. I am particular about my... More

I went here on a recommendation from a business associate and wasn't disappointed. I sat at the bar and ordered from the full dinner menu. The decor was colorful, eclectic and fun. The staff was pleasant and very attentive guiding me on both my draft beer and food choices. I dined on a Shrimp Cocktail and a Garlic Shrimp entree... More

Food was great; service was gracious. They made us feel like they really appreciated our business! Definitely going back! Wish they took reservations, however.

I come here at least twice a month for the delicious lunch menu, number 3. A chicken fajita taco but ask for the soft tortillas. The hard one is terrible. Also ask for lettuce to be left off, and you have the best meal in town for under $10. Try everything else, of courses as this is well known for... More

WE try and go to La Costa's at least once a week for lunch or dinner. Say Hi to Alex and the gang. Danny takes great care of you in the bar. The salsa is our favorite in Bakersfield. Just wish the bowls were a little bigger, refilling can get old. But, that does not deter us from enjoying the... More
