Costa Vida is one of my favorite restaurants in all of the East Valley. They have great prices - especially for the portion sizes. The atmosphere is a surfing environment with a huge screen tv showing surfers and surf videos. Costa Vida is known for quite a few things - one is their sweet pork, another are their smothered burritos, and their chicken salads with the creamy tomatillo ranch dressing. It can be crowded - so come early on the weekends. But once you go once, you'll probably be back again because the food is addicting!
