Such good food and a reasonable price! I have celiac, and I’ve been here a ton and never gotten sick. Just ask them to change their gloves and ask for corn tortillas

This was our go to place until I saw the employee take the rice spoon and spread the rice at the bottom of the tortilla touching the tortilla and then putting it back in the rice container. This location needs some extra training I've had to ask them to change their gloves every time and for a new container after they put a tortilla in it and then took it out and was expecting to use the same container.

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.

I eat here a lot, tell them first thing you are gluten free and they will immediately change their gloves. The dressings, meats, and everything else besides the wheat tortillas are gluten free. Deliciousness and the knowledgable staff make this a favorite.

I see that they are gig trained but I got so glutened by them. I'm in agony. I had to ask them a lot of things to be sure that there was no cross contamination, but I guess it wasn't enough. Either their workers touch the ingredients to the tortillas (which I saw one do after I was wrung up), they share common cutting services, or they don't really know what makes a food glyren free. I'm extremely upset and should've been tipped off when they aid, "so thst means you. Any h do dairy..." Gig trained-yeah right! They don't follow it if they are. Do not eat here if you have celiac disease. They are set up like chipotle and I never get duck from there, so they obviously have a lot to learn!

My husband and I eat here often. I don't get the corn tortillas, so I'm not worried about their contamination issues. I get a salad and it's awesome. The staff is very helpful and they'll change their gloves for you if you ask them to.

Fortunately I'm not sensitive to cross contamination. I love costa Vida and I love their efforts to be GF. I can eat there with no problems unless I get beans which I can't tolerate. Love the food and love that its GF! Staff always change gloves and wash their hands.

Although the food here tastes excellent, I have doubts about the claim of gluten free. They claim GIG training, but no one I saw behind the counter seemed to know what that means. Corn tortillas are made on the same griddle as flour, without cleaning the surface first. Watched the cook go from cooking flour to corn tortillas on the same griddle without wiping down the surface, changing gloves, or cooking utensils. She then used a spatula that was kept in a pile of wheat flour and coated with the stuff to turn the corn tortillas. When I got my "gluten free" meal, that I had specifically asked for off the "gluten free" menu, it had a wheat flour tortilla on the bottom of it. I understand the limits of the "gluten free" claim in any restaurant. There is a high risk of cross-contamination anywhere you go. But to say you're GIG trained, and then have this degree of ignorance, is a stretch of the imagination.

We were very excited about Costa Vida especially after we went the first time. They changed their gloves. They had one specific person touch our food the whole time. It was great until we went for our third time and we noticed that they put the gluten free corn tortillas on the same cooker as where they cooked the flour tortillas. Cross-contamination central. Unfortunate too because they made such an effort to become gluten free.

I asked about gluten free and found out that all of their sauces and meats and beans are gluten free. They make everything on flour tortillas that are being made right there on a grill. They were able to make my enchiladas on corn tortillas. The person making them changed gloves and washed his hands and put a clean piece of foil on the grill to heat the corn tortillas. My food was delicious and I did not get sick.

The lady who took my order immediately took her gloves off, washed her hands for a long time, and put on a fresh pair of gloves when I told her I was celiac. They grilled my tacos on a fresh piece of tin foil on the grill. They also bagged my stuff separately from everyone else's. No huffing or signing or eye rolling! She was very happy to do it! The best service I have received in awhile!

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. My son loves their food and so do I. Make sure you voice your allergy so they will change their gloves.***update*** they no longer use tongs with the lettuce or cheese meaning there’s major cross contamination. Witnessed on nearly every occasion since the manager made our meals. I just skip the lettuce and cheese unless it’s a new container.
