Food is good, but they are very stingy with the meat. The server who greeted us was not friendly at all, no smile -- nothing. It was like we were bothering her. She kind of stung the pork over the top of the rice for a salad. I asked if she could please put a little more meat on it and was promply told it would be extra. I okayed it, planning on complaining it about it at check-out -- just wanted to get past this unfriendly person! Also, she didn't wait for the ladle of pico de gallo to drain before slopping it over the lettuce so by the time we got back to work, the tortilla on the bottom was soggy.
Manager did agree to not charge me for the extra meat "this time." Cashier was very nice.
It's not a cheap place to eat either. Large salad, drink and $1.99 for a little extra meat was over $11 for a lunch!! Ridiculous!!
Have compated Costa Vida and Cafe Rio with friends, and we all agree that Costa Vida is more stingy with the meat. We like the taste and the convenient location though so we put up with a couple of rude staff members.
