I usto live close to here and we still eat here often. Always quiet and always good hot tasty food. Their salsa is unreal. We always buy extra and take it home. If you like Mexican you can't go wrong with this place.

The first time we visited this restaurant we were totally in love...everything was wonderful, second time was okay but seem to be failing with the salsa and bean dips, this third time was not so great at all. The salsa and bean dip were both a little flavorless, our lunch was pretty standard. Will consider giving them one more chance... More

While this Mexican restaurant is typical -- with the colorful decor and chips on the table when you arrive-- it is a bit dated and tired. The food is good, but not outstanding. A good choice for a 1 hour lunch, but not for special occasions.

My 3 friends and I visited La Costa and all ordered entree's made with chicken. The food was delicious! BUT we all were sick with the runs the next day. It couldn't have just been a coincidence. We blame however the chicken was handled since that was the common denominator. Service was great and chips and salsa were pretty good... More

We ordered the fajitas for two. Plenty to eat, great flavor. The beers were delightfully COLD. The salsa was good. A great experience. My only thought : they needed more servers. Atmosphere was was great. I seen repeat customers, a good sign!!!

Wonderful authentic Mexican food and so many choices it was hard to decide what to order. Our service was fast and we were checked on often. For those going to the Wy Medical Center it is close enough to walk. We will go back as we were so impressed we want to try other dishes. I would recommend a combination... More

Got the chicken fajitas, when the plate arrived I couldn't believe the amount on the plate. Barely enough to put on 2 small tortillas, definitely not worth the $14 they charge for them. No flavour, I make better at home. Chips were hard. Service was poor. Never saw the waitress again after she brought the food. I ran out of... More

I've been coming here for years and it never disappoints. Their salsa is to die for!!! Maybe the service isn't too notch buy personally I like to be left alone a little more than the average person so it's perfect fit someone like me. I don't know if it's bad advertisement or what but I'm always surprised they're not more... More
