I am a traveling manager for work so when I need something quick and that fits in my meal regimen, I always hit up Costa Vida thanks to their number of locations across the valley. The team here is amazing from service, to food handling and cleanliness. The restaurant offers a vibrant atmosphere that is great for meeting friends or... More

No line so our visit started out great. Tortillas are smashed and cooked before your eyes so they're always fresh. Salads are generous and prepared how you want it. I get the nachos and Irma did a great job putting it together. A fair amount of chicken and plenty of cheese. Through the broiler and they're ready for toppings. The... More

I like the chicken burrito. It is a full meal. The burrito comes with black beans, rice, corn, and deliciously thin sliced grill chicken. I add green salsa , sour cream, lettuce and guacamole sauce. The food tastes great and seems healthy.

Not a bad place to eat lunch. The food was tasty, but could have been warmer, as in heat from a stove. The spicing was so-so. Ate there with one of my lunch groups, heard some muttering about the taco salad being mostly lettuce. I had the Tuesday special which was two sweet pork enchiladas and beans and rice. I... More

This is a fun place, they make the tortillas right there in front of you! Then of course you pick how they put it together kind of like a "mexican Subway sandwich" system! :) Fresh ingredients, good menu selection and very tasty! They also have several salsa selections, I always go with the mild which is a green sauce.

It was different from other Mexican restaurant. The food was good, the place is very big but the music playing was a bit loud.

Nothing to rant about, mild mex food, somewhat bland as far as tastes go, priced a bit high for what you get

We eat at Costa Vida either in Nampa or Meridian once or twice a month because of their unique fresh salads. I usually order a shredded beef salad with all the toppings and then have the Cilantro-Lime dressing. I love the homemade flour tortillas. I always get the full sized salad and it is very filling. My wife orders the... More

My family and I really enjoy Costa Vida most times. Some not so much. All depends on the day you go. Its either very good or not so good. They also can seem to be very greedy at times!
