The food was good but I felt sick right afterwards. I would recommend watching the line more carefully and speaking up to make sure your food is prepared properly at the end of the line. The first server changed her gloves and washed her hands but I dont believe the second did.
Knowledge staff. They change gloves before prepping gluten free and all menu items gluten free except flour tortillas. Awesome! Update... 5th time in two months eating here. No cross contamination, continued vigilance with gluten free orders.
I'll definitely be back - Great food and very knowledgeable!
Saved me and my son after attempting to order at SmashBurger and Mod's Pizza (neither of which you can get a gluten free meal). The staff will bend over backwards to make sure you have a safe and delicious meal!
I will be back! I asked the lady if the case it was gluten-free and she said everything was good and free except for the flour tortillas then she proceeded to change her glove before I even asked. They have a separate area for the topping to cut down on cross contamination.
I have severe celiac disease, they took care of me, changed their gloves and washed their hands! I'd never been there before and they were patient and recommended items for me as well!
Very conscious and accommodating!
Costa Vida is awesome!!! Seems like the entire restaurant is focused around Gluten Free. I eat here at least once a week. I’ve never been sick. Staff is knowledgeable about gluten. They are helpful & friendly. Best place for Celiacs.
Have to give 5 stars. As soon as I came into the store and told them I needed gluten free the man who took my order washed his hands and changed gloves. He also was the only one who touched my food. I felt comfortable they did everything in their power to prevent cross contamination. A new regular spot for a gf family.
They use the same tortilla press for their corn and wheat tortillas. No way that doesn’t have cross contamination and changing spoons in the same prep stuff that is already cross contimsted doesn’t work.
My daughter and I have never gotten sick eating here. They are really good about cross-contamination (although they’ll only say gluten-friendly) and the only thing on the menu that’s got gluten is the flour tortillas and a couple of the desserts. They will make any of the menu items out of the corn tortillas or omit tortillas altogether for salads. The staff is super helpful and considerate.
Very accommodating to food allergies. Manager is very helpful when making your meal. He did a fantastic job of letting us know safe choices for us. Almost everything except the flour, wheat tortillas and a few desserts, is gluten free. My son is also dairy free and they accommodate his custom nacho order without hesitation. He loves their food and so do I. Make sure you voice your allergy so they will change their gloves.
Manager was very knowledgeable about celiac and food allergies. Immediately changed his gloves and led me through the choices that would work for me. I’m celiac and had no reaction. Can’t wait to go back! There’s an app with nutritional info outlining ingredients.
Great customer service! As soon as I mentioned I had a gluten allergy, she immediately washed her hands. Very knowledgeable about celiac and guided me through the process. I had a chicken mango salad that was full of fresh flavors! Corn tortillas on the side. I highly recommend this place and will come back.
Love costa vida! I used to eat here when I lived in Utah. They are great about allergies. Order "gluten friendly" tacos and they will change cloves, wash hands and cook your food in foil so it doesn't couch the grill. The only main line item that's gluten is the flour tortillas. Plus, you can watch them make your food over the counter.
This place is amazing! Online it says they have lots of gluten free options so I decided to give this place a shot. It is set up like a chipotle so I was worried about bad cross contamination but once I told the employee I had a gluten allergy, he threw away his gloves and washed his hands very well and put on clean gloves. He then announced that he was doing an allergy order and asked for another employee to help the people next in line. He put foil down on the grill for my two tacos and was very conscious of not touching anything that wasn't gluten free. I was really impressed with the amount of effort he put in to make my food as gf as possible. The food was delicious and mostly everything is made gf except their flour and wheat tortillas and desserts!!!
Always good, kinda fast food, like Chipotle. Tell them you're GF and they'll change their gloves before preparing your food. These are the only GF burritos I have access to, and you can get them "smothered" for free. All the meats, sauces, dressings, soups are GF. Good, fresh, fast, cheap. This location has a drive through for if you call ahead.
One of my absolute favorites! They make the corn tortillas fresh in the mornings so they go on the grill before any of the flour ones. If you let them know they will happily change their gloves. Everything is gluten free but the desserts and the flour tortillas. My favorite is the sweet pork, the salad is great and so are the enchiladas. We go all the time and have never had a problem!
I can't even give this place one star! I hate giving bad reviews but I must be honest......1.) This place is not Celiac safe like they say. Fresh flour tortillas spin round on a hot plate right at the start of the buffet line. Serving spoons touch the tortillas then go right back in the bin of food. 2.)The green chili has sugar in it, the habanero salsa has sugar, the meat has sugar do not only is it hard being diabetic to properly manage the insulin dosage but it tastes terrible. Spicy mexican food is what I was after and instead it was like a jalapeno with frosting! Yuck! This place is trying to be like Chipotle but doesn't come close.
Most everything on their menu is gluten free. Corn tortilla had good flavor but dry and it fell apart. The only thing I think they need to pay closer attention to is to be careful not touch the flour tortilla with the ladle. I've eaten there three times and have not got sick.
