We eat here often! Great salads made to your liking as well as the standard Mexican choices. It is not full service, but there are many tables in this colourful fast food Mexican restaurant. Large portion sizes at a great price.

Probably not where you want to go if you want to please your taste buds with Mexican cuisine! It is fast food and the flavors are rather bland.

We've had Costa Vida a few times for work. There have been anywhere from 7-30 of us and we order their taco bar. All you have to do is call them, tell them how many people and they pretty much do the rest! If you...More
