Better than Taco Bell! I've eaten here a couple of times and was great. Good food and fair prices. Service has been friendly and they follow social distancing and mask guidelines. Take out is over priced as the portions aren't as big as when you dine in.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in town. The chimichangas are the best and can't be beat. I've been more times than I can count over the years and I've always had great experiences. The food is flavored perfectly and service is always friendly. Very festive atmosphere. Definitely highly recommend.

Great food! fast service! I called in a to go order and got it in 10 minutes. The portions were larger when dining in though. A little pricey for take out, but better priced when eating in the restaurant.

Service was good, friendly folks!Food preparation was not very good on our visit. 2 out of 3 meals at our table were Under-seasoned and unappetizing. But the Queso was great! Probably won't drive out that way again for a while.

Always a comfort food favorite. Everyone so friendly here but we've been missing a few of our favorite servers lately, Allen and Olivia. Hoping they will both return soon. Thanks Olivia for always bringing my favorite margarita as soon as we sit down! Thinking of trying the Porter's Neck location for our next visit.

Served us raw chicken. Like really raw, we weren't bring picky but when you serve both plates with raw chicken I'm leaving. Even the sides looked like they were old and bad quality. Sub cafeteria quality.

Very disappointing. They did not give me rice and beans on the side with my lunch combo. It clearly says you get it on the menu. When I called to tell them they made up a BS excuse saying it is in my burrito . I called and talked to the Manager and she didn't care and hung up on me. I would recommend going somewhere else.

Our family was in this area and wanted to try a new venue. Typically we visit San Felipe, but I checked the reviews on google and they had excellent ratings.The staff is friendly, but the food is lacking seasoning. The taco salad came out with only beef, lettuce, cheese and tomato.No guacamole or sour cream as the description stated. I chose to eat it and not ask for correction. The shell tasted as if the oil used to fry it hadn't been changed.The disappointing thing to me is the cheese used. When dining in a Mexican restaurant, I love the Mexican cheese that is typically used, this cheese tasted like run of if the mill bagged grocery cheddar. The beef didn't have much flavor either.It may have been an off day when we visited, because I was shocked that the reviews were so great and the food was bland. I will stick to the restaurant we are used to, as we didn't even finish our meals.The service was excellent though and friendly, so I really hated to leave this review. I am sure it may have just been a random occurrence.T

I have always enjoyed this restaurant for atleast 15 years! Though this time the service was a little off. Had ask for my beer after ordering and did not revieve a child's lemonade . But they were nice enough to hold on to my own misplaced paper item that I forgot. Staff is always really nice no matter how busy they are or size of the party. Prefere it over almost all mexican/hispanic RESTRAUNTs in town. I had the pollo fundido; girlfriend had the chile relleno, and we also had a combo meal split with some our party

Great food with large serving sizes for a good price. I almost always get one of their combo platters so I can have a variety of items to taste. My favorites are the tamales and enchiladas. Their nachos are a huge plate. Their margaritas are really good too and they have delicious chips and salsa.

We went to La Costa last week while on vacation at Wrightsville Beach. I called ahead to see if they had room for 8 people, and by the time we got there they had a large table set up for us. Everything we ate was awesome. I had a shrimp and cheese dish and it was great. My husband loved the beef tacos. My father in law loved the mole sauce on the enchiladas. In addition to great food, our service was spot on. The staff was attentive, and everyone seemed to pitch in. Great experience!

For years my 2nd wife and I went to LaCosta for Mexican food ! Was my favorite for many years , even longer than my 2nd marriage lasted !! LOL ! The only reason I do not frequent it now is due to the traffic on Market St !! If you want Mexican that tastes very authentic give LaCosta a try and you will love it !!

We went because my husband likes their food, that is why I am giving it 2 stars. I thought it tasted like a warmed up frozen dinner with canned sauce poured on it. I won't go back.

Review №69

Chicken fajitas were bland, the amount of chicken (with two tortillas) and the small scoop of rice and beans were not worth the $9.50 I paid for the lunch portion.. just wasn't good. The chicken was about an 1/8" thick.I have eaten here in the past, and enjoyed it, but I will not go back.. it is apparent they are trying to reduce expenses but not realizing how important it is to have repeat customers

Honest opinion:I have travel to many many places, I have no found a Mexican restaurant as good as this one. I love asking for chips with burrito sauce and the fajita quesadilla. Everything g I have order isn't spicy unless you asked for.The staff Is fully bilingual. A proper and authentic Mexican restaurant in my opinion.
