I was nervous because the reviews for this location weren’t great, but I also saw that no one had submitted a review in over a year—and a lot can change in a year. When I went, I mentioned an allergy to gluten (in case they didn’t know what celiac meant). And the one employee immediately changed his gloves without being asked, and I saw the other employee washing his hands. The first employee also said, “Gluten Free!” to the other, and he seemed pretty knowledgeable about what was gluten free. I got the steak salad with everything but the tortilla. Basically everything on the menu is gluten free except the tortillas and the desserts (except I think the flan is gluten free). Even the tortilla strips that go on top of the salad are gluten free, as in no cross contamination in a fryer. Everything was delicious, and I’m so glad. I’d heard that basically everything at Cafe Rio has gluten, and I was so sad—but in the gluten free community, everyone says Costa Vida is the way to go. I’ll definitely be back.

Edit 2019: no longer safe. Requests to redo mistakes was met with hostility

as long as I watch them and remind them not to touch my food without changing their gloves, this is safe. most the time I don't have to say anything. If they do touch it on accident without changing gloves, they will remake it.

Not impressed. I’ve been there a few times and asked for gluten free. The staff did change their gloves but didn’t wash their hands or take any special care of my food. It seems like some employees do and some don’t know how sensitive someone can be. I don’t see employees communicate to each other that my dish is gluten free. My regular Costa Vida is Tooele and I’ve always been happy, never been sick but each time I visit West Jordan I am sick.

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 staff is always great. When I say I need gluten free they always go wash their hands and put on new gloves. They also make sure anyone who handles my food knows it’s GF. Never had a problem at a Costa Vida. I love that I can eat almost everything here and it’s yummy!

The tortilla stone is used for both wheat and corn tortilla so that is not gluten free but a definite CC for a celiac. Change gloves but not spoons so I didn’t eat there

I love this place. It's my go to restaurant. I just let them know I'm gluten free. They wash their hands and change their gloves without any issues.

Our 9 year old has celiac disease, ate at this location, and threw up a few hours later. The kitchen staff didn't seem to take it seriously when we asked for gluten-free due to celiac disease.

You have to watch them and say gluten allergy. They will change their gloves and are good about it if you are watching them. I love costa vida though.

I do not know what is wrong with this particular Costa Vida...but I have been cross contaminated 2 times now. Beware of the workers at this establishment, they do not speak English and they do not care that you have Celiac Disease and can get very ill.

You could see cross contamination in everything. Thankfully I didn’t have my kids with me, they would have gotten extremely sick. I am not quite as sensitive and will survive
