I used to go here frequently when I worked nearby. I haven't been in a while and when I found myself close to Burien I decided to have dinner here. I was glad I did. Excellent service and great food. A very good value for the money.

Very Good American Style Mexican. Big portions and big, tasty margaritas. They have some great more traditional style Mexican dishes as well.

I've been here a few times both for lunch and dinner. Never failed to have really good food. I grew up in LA, and La Costa is the real deal. Pleasant service, family place or casual date dining. Located in a strip shopping center in an increasingly cute downtown Burien, it's just plain good. And they serve delicious refried beans... More

This is where we go for good Mex. I tell all my friends and co-workers to go here, and none have been disappointed.

Some dishes are very good, others unremarkable and over sauced. Meals are very reasonably priced for the quality and large portions. Family friendly, just be aware it can get crowded (bar on premises) and loud (several sports TV... More
