We have worked diligently to remove wheat gluten from all our sauces, dressings, sauces and proteins. Natural glutens remain only in our flour and wheat tortillas and in two desserts--tres leches and key lime pie. This means that we offer "oceans of gluten-free choices" in our menu. All of these items are gluten-free: all enchiladas, all tacos, all salads (without the flour or wheat tortilla), all nachos, and our chicken tortilla soup...which uses corn strips. And, we can easily make all burritos with corn tortillas, enchilada-style. Just ask!

    I just ate here and had a great experience. The staff ( manager) immediately washed his hands and changed his gloves when I asked for a gluten free meal specifying I have a true allergy. He followed the food down the line personally ( I asked him to!). The result? Great food, no gluten reaction and a pleasant stay in Cedar City! Thanks Costa Vida! You guys are my go-to tasty eat out restaurant at home and away.

    I came here shortly after my celiac diagnosis and didn't really understand cross contamination. I got so sick and was very disappointed because I thought I had done everything right. Then I realized that even though all their filling ingredients were gluten free, they all come into contact with the flour tortillas, essentially making them full of gluten and affecting someone like me. I wouldn't recommend going here unless you can convince them to make your food with fresh ingredients that haven't been contaminated.

    I went to this restaurant in hopes of finding a new gf place to eat. I was violently ill before I even left the restaurant. Their sauces and toppings are all gf, but they scoop them out of them same containers that they do when someone orders a flour tortilla. So when someone orders a burrito they scoop out the stuff, spread it around the tortilla, and then put the now contaminated spoon back in the container. They also use the same hot plate for ALL the tortillas. Not a separate one. They also told me they use the same tortilla press for their corn tortillas as they do their flour. They said they make the corn first, but if they're using the same press, then how can they guarantee the corn tortillas are still gf? Anyways, I got sick and won't be going back.
