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 Sunday, but was surprised and evidently, lucky to get the last available table (its occupants were at the register and departing). Even though they were busy, we didn't wait more than about 20 minutes. We had the Sopes and the Carnitas platter. The food was mouthwatering upon delivery (sorry, no pics to share). Their salsa should be bottled and sold. I'm not sure if it is made in-house, but it tastes like it probably is. Stop here for a meal, you won't regret and it won't break the pocketbook. Be prepared to be a little patient because busy means delicious and fresh... You aren't looking for Taco Bell drive-through speed when you are lining up with other wise diners to eat at the best Mexican food establishment north of Cloverdale.

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.

Delicious, our favorite restaurant to visit when we are in Fortuna. Small but nice, food is yummy. Fast service. Always busy, this is where the locals go to get good food!

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 looks like." Scary thought. The food was average at best. We eat Mexican food every time we travel. Likely to forget this place. Service was quick, food hot. Prices reasonable.
