Costa Vida is a favorite of mine with their unique fresh salad mixed with hot rice and beans. The dressings and salad options are so tasty and filling. It's unfortunate that the service makes it sometimes uncomfortable being in line and ordering, almost as if you're a nuisance being in the restaurant. If Costa Vida fixes this piece of the... More

We went before heading to the Lights At The Mesa Temple. We were excited to find a Costa Vida, because my young family really likes it and we don't have one where we live. The food was great. Just like other locations, very fresh and filling. I appreciated that they were even willing to help us out with a kids... More

Kids love going here. Sweet pork burritos are very tasty. Food is fresh. The wait can be bothersome. It's not the best Mexican food, but is a good alternative to Chipotle.

Busy restaurant around 1pm Saturday. Food looks good but try getting it made properly is a trick. You go through an assembly station to have the servers take & make your food order. I ordered Sweet Pork Nachos & a Kids Quesadilla Meal which includes a drink rice'n beans, & a dessert. Nothing but problems getting the nachos ordered. Told... More

A great place to come to if you are visiting the Chandler, Mesa, Gilbert area. Located in Dana Village, you are going to get a good Mexican plate at a cost that won't cost you an arm and a leg. Considering the Village, that is a plus after a hard day of shopping.

Such a fun Mexican atmosphere, and so casual, and quick to get in and out. Wonderfully consistent quality. Good value.

I enjoy this place but I don't go often. Sweet Pork is great! Beans and Rice not so much. Tortillas are great! It gets busy but the line moves smoothly. Try it, you might think it great.

I love coming here. The staff is so friendly and knows my order! The food always tastes great! I come here very often! I think the prices are affordable since it is usually 2 meals!

Without a doubt the food is fresh and good ingredients are used. What's not good, the way the servers rush you through the line and seem bothered if you have a guestion, or want extra ingredients added. On this day I ordered the cheese enchilada (1) with beans and rice combo, my lady friend ordered the chicken taco (1) with... More

Often there is a coupon for a $5 smothered burrito. With each register receipt there is free salsa and chips. Anything on the menu here is awesome. Also for signing up, you get $4 off on your 1st order. On top of that you accumulate points towards free food. There is another one off Rural by ASU in case out... More
