My buddies are FOODIES! They put away a trash can lid sized plate of burritos and enchiladas and rice and beans. The plates are hot... I had the shredded beef tostada and it was plenty,with a Corona.(No lime). The beef was a little too salty for my taste. Maybe ground beef,next time. The salsa was fine,the hot sauce was fine,too....

My wife and I love La Costa, and have dinner there regularly. I can't say if it seriously authentic, but I will say it is not the bland, Americanized version usually served in local Mexican restaurants. The service is fast and friendly, and the drinks are potent. The décor is the usual over-the-top Mexican flair, nothing really unique, but it... More

Great place! Love that they have an earlier happy hour. Makes it easy to have a "girl's lunch", while the kiddos are in school. 🤗

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.

Huge platters of good food! The waiter was was so nice, he exchanged the main dishes on the combo plate so I could have both chili rellenos and spinach tamales! Plus they have huge margaritas. Hubby was happy with huge steak enchilada. But here's a really impressive thing. While waiting for new customers, the hostess wiped down and disinfected the... More

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
