It's a fast food restaurant, nothing is made to order. Food is sitting in a warmer and assembled at the counter. You can your food on a tray. Food was just ok and the dinning area needed to be cleaned. Would not return.

Costa always has great tasting food. The place is usually busy, but always seems to have room when your looking for a seat. The management is much better then the new Cafe Rio over by campus. They are very efficient with their line. Quick to get your food made.

Not sure whether you would call this Tex Mex or imitation Baja mexican food. Poor service, overpriced and (student) staff more focused on interacting with one another. "Deal Killer" is when a Mexican food restaurant charges you for a tiny cup of salsa. Really the size of a 1/2 dollar and you have to pay for it. SKIP this place... More

This place was much better than expected. The set up is similar to a Moe's where you order at a counter, but the food is much better flavor and quality. We came in right during their dinner rush, but didn't have to wait long. The quesadilla with onions and peppers (I believe it's a fajita quesadilla) was great. Friendly service... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant although it's a fast food place. Staff was very friendly and portrayed a welcome feeling. Thoroughly enjoyed what we ordered. Restaurant was very clean and inviting.

Costa Vida has lots of savory salads and delicious burritos! I've been here with friends as well as family. My husband loves the sweet pork burrito and I love the mango chicken salad. They give you more than enough toppings, 3 choices of dressing on salads, and have great deals for college students! The atmosphere is welcoming and very roomy... More

I've been to Costa Vida quite a bit. There are some menu items I like and regularly order. The food was what I had expected. I was a little taken back by the dust gathered on the lights above the food preparation. I kept wondering if an open door would blow some wind in and knock the dust into my... More

Although the line was huge. The wait was worth it. Fresh tacos with amazing tortillias. The meat was so juicy and delicious. I wanted Chipotile... but loved Costa Vida. They even serve horchata... not many Mexican restaurants have this yummy elixer available.

It's good food made in front of you. Your choice of meats, beans, rice, toppings for burritos or salads. A lot like Cafe Rio.
