Food is delish n prices are reasonable. The cooks are authentic Mexican folks. We loved their Chimichangas, tacos and Chile relleno. Place is a little crowded though.

The food is great and authentic, which seems hard to find in Northern California. Very good menu with a large variety of selections. The atmosphere is like a big Sunday Family Dinner with everyone talking at once. So, if you're looking for something quiet and romantic, better get it To-Go. I was super happy to see they were open on... More

Good food, great salsa! Authentic Mexican food, enchiladas are my test dish, and La Costa passed! Fresh iced tea, that's a big plus. A good selection of Mexican beer, and it is open until 9.

First, parking is not convenient. We actually parked down a ways, in the street. They do not offer many spaces. The place was busy, lots of take out orders. We stood at the door a while before anyone seated us. The store is filthy. I remember saying to my hubby, "I don't want to even think about what the kitchen... More

In the last few years I have had Mexican food from every border state, lot of other states and even quite a few places in Mexico. This was simply the best. Amazingly simple and small, looking like a transplant from Brownsville TX. From the second he delivery guy loaded up his well used Mazda sedan big aluminum trays that leaked... More

Finally, a Mexican restaurant in Humboldt that isn't terrified of spicy food! Salsa and sauces are great - enchilada was the only thing that wouldn't order again. I am going back tomorrow to have dinner with friends!
