Such friendly staff and great food fast .... i just simply ordered as needing “gluten free” and they immediately change gloves and proceed to ask what you’d like. I have ordered enchiladas the few times I’ve gone... they grab corn tortillas & as soon as they pop my tray in the conveyor oven (to melt cheese) they let the next person know its gluten free coming thru... they too change their gloves. Great service & good food fast!

Went in this evening to order dinner for myself and my celiac husband. I ordered their grilled steak salad, gluten free. No sooner were the words out of my mouth than the gentleman behind the counter threw away the tray he had pulled out, replaced his gloves with fresh ones, and grabbed gluten free tortillas. He was careful not to "contaminate" the food at any point in the process. It is delightful to be able to eat somewhere that I don't have to stress about whether it will make my husband sick. Oh, and their sweet pork is to die for.

Notes


From their allergen list: We have worked diligently to remove wheat gluten from all our sauces, dressings, 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 options" 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 so up...which uses corn strips.

The best sweet pork ever. I have celiac and get terribly I'll if I ingest gluten. This place is head and shoulders above many of their competitors. After watching the preparation of my Baja Bowl, I was so happy with the care taken to keep my meal gluten free. As always, there are about 5% gluten ingredients here so watch the person preparing your meal answer ask for a managers help if you are unsure of your server.

Love this place! Only a few menu items have gluten (ex. flour tortillas) so there are lots of options. Good flavors, friendly staff. Try it!

We moved here recently and this location is terrible with cross contamination! The first worker will change their gloves, but then pass it on down the line to others who didn't prep at all. Costa Vida has been our go to and we have eaten at many different locations throughout Arizona and Utah with no problems. We have a friend who also has Celiacs and he didn't know he could even eat at Costa Vida because the only location he had been to was the one in Rexburg and he always got sick. The Idaho Falls location is much better at trying to alleviate cross contamination! We have had zero issues at the Idaho Falls location. They are MUCH more cautious. Go there!

My husband is celiac. We just moved from a place in Utah where we had a Costa Vida close by that wasn't careful and despite Costa Vida having many gluten-free options, they always made my husband sick every time he went there. With that experience, he was really hesitant to go to this location. But we read so many good reviews on here about them being very careful, so we went. They were great! My husband is so happy!

**They say everything is gluten-free besides the tortillas. They took extra precautions to not cross contaminate their food.

Wife has Celiacs and the employees said that the only thing that has gluten in it is the tortillas. Everything else is gluten free. My wife hasn’t had a problem eating here. They changed their gloves out willingly and did their best to make sure there wasn’t any cross contamination.
