Love Costa! I always get the quesadillas which are made with two corn tacos and steak. They put foil on the cooking surface to prevent CC. Do make sure they change their gloves and watch your food like a hawk while they make it bc otherwise you could easily be cross contamined :(

The owner was amazing as his Wife is Celiac. They have a dedicated fryer for corn chips. They use foil on the grill to warm up corn tortillas.

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’ve never had an issue here, I love getting chicken/steak salads at restaurants like these and staff is aware of what gluten is.

First time ordering from this Costa Vida. Ordered a Baja Bowl. It was a pick up order which I understand is a risk to begin with. I made clear in my online order that I had celiac disease and also put “severe gluten allergy” just so the people who have no idea what Celiac is might get a better idea on how to handle things. When I picked it up I asked again if they understood and if safe practices were followed with my “allergy”. They said yes but looked confused. Unfortunately I did get sick at this location. Still paying for it 2 days later. Im pregnant and was absolutely starving after a 12 hour shift so unfortunately I took the risk. Wish I hadn’t! I’m guessing with a ton of communication and explaining things, they could potentially be a safe place to eat. However, they proved not to be if you mention it and even double check.

Said celiac and she changed her gloves immediately. Always a good sign. Got a bowl. The chips are safe. Decent meal on the road. Small town that is hard to find safe food in. Happy with our stop.
