We only did carry-out for a while due to covid, but now that life is returning to normal we've had a wonderful experience going back. The staff greets us like old friends and the food is a good as every. Don't miss wonderful spot and...support local people.More

My wife and I ate in this restaurant many years ago (before they moved) and decided to try it because it was on DoorDash. We ordered the appetizer sampler (to share), a combo meal (for her), and a burrito (for me). The food was bland...throughout. The salsa tasted like tomatoes. Virtually no spice anywhere, and no, we don't have COVID. The tamales were the most palatable option, but we won't be going back here with so many better options available.More

Either I have Covid or the food was extremely BLAND. Chips were stale, salsa had little flavor, and my chicken enchilada had an odd, old/stale flavor. Many better options in town. Nice enough service, but food wasn't very good.

They are OPEN during Covid for dine in. The online site here says they aren’t. Anyways, they are open. We eat here regularly. Great, tasty food! Not bland. Excellent (thin) crispy chips and salsa. Wonderful service! We enjoy the lunch specials, and the taco Tuesday...specials. Everything we’ve had here has been delicious! Located on the Liberty Square.More

Great Mexican cuisine on the square in the old part of Liberty, Missouri. There are a few TV sets which provide the possibility of watching a game while dining.

We love to eat here- last night I had the bacon wrapped shrimp special. Excellent. I can't wait to order it again. The best part about eating at La Costa is the friendly staff. They are so welcoming!

Located in the old part of Liberty across from the municipal building this is a good choice for Mexican food. We were there for lunch. I had the #1 lunch special; deep fried taco and a cheese enchilada served with rice and beans. Good flavor...for all items. My husband had a beef chimichanga. He ate all so must have been good. We each had margaritas served in a fishbowl glass. Our bill came to $30 which is about right for what we had. I would visit again if in the area.More

We just got back from a long trip. I wrote reviews about a lot of places. I have never written a review about my favorite Mexican restaurant! La Costa has great tasting food and wonderful margaritas. I've watched the staff and they are friendly with...everyone. Don't miss this treasure!More

La Costa is located in an 1886 building on the Liberty square, so there is exposed brick and old mailboxes on the wall. The menu offers many options, and the food is good. Afterwards, the square is made up of several quaint shops to visit....Good place to visit!More

We're all about Mexican food, but this is not on our list. We had burrito plates and it was a step up from Taco Bell (puke). We gave it two chances, hoping the second visit would be better than the first and it was just...as bad. There was a weird smell in the restaurant, almost like spoiled meat. The staff didn't speak English too well. The food was more on the liquid side than solid side, almost pureed like at a nursing home. :-( Not to mention it was tasteless. And the portions of cheese dip, guacamole, salsa, etc. were small but expensive. They overloaded our plates with lettuce, to make it look like we got a lot. The atmosphere was nice but everything else just sucked. We won't be going back. Did I mention that parking is scarce? This place is on the square and too many businesses with too little parking spots.More

They have a fun atmosphere that is roomy and lots of choices on the menu. I had the tamales dinner, with two tamales, beans, and rice. The tamales were really good with plenty of meat. The whole plate was very good. Their picante sauce is...also very good. We will definitely go back next time we are in the area.More
