    Almost everything is gluten free. They change their gloves when I tell them I am gluten free.

    Really great food. Only the flour tortillas are not gluten free. Everything on the menu can be made gluten free.

    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. Update: I gave the food a second chance and ordered nachos again. The manager was serving at the front of the line and made sure my food was safe. No issues. I also noticed that he got chips from the back---something that did not happen last time. I believe those chips made the difference.

    We have been here a dozen times already. Be clear that you can’t have cross contamination. They will change gloves, and we have never had issues.

    They have a lot of GF options. They wash their hands and change gloves with a smile. I haven’t been glutened there yet. Only concern is with cross contamination on the line. I bet they would get fresh ingredients off the line if I asked though.

    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!

    My son and I are both Celiac- we both got sick within 15 minutes of eating the 2 times we tried it. I even requested they wipe off their tortilla machine as they prepare both corn and wheat on the same equipment. No changes in our reactions. Some of their meats have a flour thickener so I was told to stick with steak.

    Gloves may change but the stone they make their tortillas on for gf is the same for their wheat flour ones. No way that is gluten free and for sensitive Celiacs I would not eat or gamble here.

    Food was OK. Staff has some training regarding GF and allergen concerns but it's largely ceremonial. Yes, everyone changes their gloves the second you mention GF. It's a nice gesture. However, all ingredients are pulled from bins by hand, and the same press and comal are used for both corn and flour tortillas. I had a sweet pork bowl, and I did not get a reaction, but this is flirting with danger for me and I probably won't try them again.

    Beware of cross contamination: I am the only gluten free person in my family. I watched them prepare my son's meal prior to mine. They touched all of the preparation utensils to his flour tortilla. I asked if it was possible for the meat and sauce for my meal to come from a different bin. They said yes, and got new sauce. Then they proceeded to get meet from the same that had previously been cross contaminated. Ironically, the whole time they prepared my food, they were super careful not to touch the serving utensils to the gf tortilla. Also, the gf tortilla was unusually thick and rubbery.

    There was some confusion over my gluten free order. The young man washed his hands and changed gloves then proceeded to make my order. He left it about half way through the line. Another young man first scooted the pans containing flour burritos then touched my salad as he scooted it down the line. When I pointed out that it was gluten free and he touched it he denied it. I told him I have celiac disease and could not eat it. Joe came to my rescue and washed his hands and put on gloves. He then proceeded to make my meal gluten free. I am not one to cause a scene but I do not want to become sick. Thanks to Joe for correcting my order

    Had the sweet pork enchiladas! They changed gloves, and made me feel taken care of. I'm not celiac but I appreciated the extra care. The tortilla is a bit thicker and on the dryer side so get saucy or your plastic knife will have a hard time. I will be back.

    The worker changed gloves and washed their hands made me impressed, but I bought a sweet pork enchilada, and got black beans, with pinko. But 30 min later I started having really bad stomach problems. They said everything besides the flour tortillas are gluten free. But I think it was caused by cross contamination.

    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

    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.

    This is one of the costa vida locations I do trust. I’ve gotten glutened at the several locations (including Riverdale) but I’ve never had a problem at this location. The owners of this location have celiacs in the family and I feel like they actually do get it. They always wash hands. Both my friend & I got sick from the Riverdale location two years ago so this is one of the few I go to .

    Fabulous - no cross contamination. They always change their gloves or will at least ask if it’s a glove change before serving their food. A lot of the staff will even take time to wash their hands (up to their elbows) before putting gloves back on. I always get a salad with corn tortillas. :)

    I have eaten here a lot since moving to Tooele. This location, specifically, is my favorite. The staff is knowledgeable and well-trained on making gluten-free items. The manager is fantastic and usually takes care of my order herself. There’s even an employee with celiac who understands the ins-and-outs of being truly gluten-free. The same is true for most other Costa locations, but this one really stands out.

    I’ve eaten here twice and have been so impressed by their care over my food. They changed their gloves, washed their hands and made sure to follow my food all the way to the end of the line. I didn’t want to risk a corn tortilla though. So I can’t speak to those. But everything else was great and didn’t make me sick!

    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.

    This is a assemble up as you order Mexican place. While I was told by the staff who took my order they would isolate and change gloves, there was none of that, nor was the request passed down the line. I saw my order get contaminated before my eyes. I tried this place based on previous recommendations, but now having been there I do not see any way a celiac could get a contamination free order.

    I've been to Costa Vida twice and both times and disappointed with there gluten-free awareness and lack of care. this last time the worker was unaware of gluten-free or protocol. so he asked the manager who was not much more aware. he did indicate the meats that were gluten free, but he in the workers we're not careful to keep the gluten items away from the gluten-free items. I don't think I will go there again. Chipotle is a better place to go for this type of food. they consistently know what they're doing and take great care.

Notes
"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."
