Kept getting sick every time I went in. The next time I stood in line, I found out why. They handle the tortillas and dunk their contaminated gloves in ALL of the fixuns... Continuously, making it my gluten nightmare. And I tested with my nima, and sure enough... Positive.

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.

They did everything right except get fresh ingredients from a different container. No reaction though. The food is great. I highly recommend the sweet pork.

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.

Knowledge staff. They change gloves before prepping gluten free and all menu items gluten free except flour tortillas. Awesome! Update... 5th time in two months eating here. No cross contamination, continued vigilance with gluten free orders.

Saved me and my son after attempting to order at SmashBurger and Mod's Pizza (neither of which you can get a gluten free meal). The staff will bend over backwards to make sure you have a safe and delicious meal!

I will be back! I asked the lady if the case it was gluten-free and she said everything was good and free except for the flour tortillas then she proceeded to change her glove before I even asked. They have a separate area for the topping to cut down on cross contamination.

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.
