My wife and I love La Costa, and have dinner there regularly. I can't say if it seriously authentic, but I will say it is not the bland, Americanized version usually served in local Mexican restaurants. The service is fast and friendly, and the drinks are potent. The décor is the usual over-the-top Mexican flair, nothing really unique, but it... More

Great place! Love that they have an earlier happy hour. Makes it easy to have a "girl's lunch", while the kiddos are in school. 🤗

I used to go here frequently when I worked nearby. I haven't been in a while and when I found myself close to Burien I decided to have dinner here. I was glad I did. Excellent service and great food. A very good value for the money.

Very Good American Style Mexican. Big portions and big, tasty margaritas. They have some great more traditional style Mexican dishes as well.

Huge platters of good food! The waiter was was so nice, he exchanged the main dishes on the combo plate so I could have both chili rellenos and spinach tamales! Plus they have huge margaritas. Hubby was happy with huge steak enchilada. But here's a really impressive thing. While waiting for new customers, the hostess wiped down and disinfected the... More

I've been here a few times both for lunch and dinner. Never failed to have really good food. I grew up in LA, and La Costa is the real deal. Pleasant service, family place or casual date dining. Located in a strip shopping center in an increasingly cute downtown Burien, it's just plain good. And they serve delicious refried beans... More

This is where we go for good Mex. I tell all my friends and co-workers to go here, and none have been disappointed.

Recommended if in the area, but not a "destination" restaurant worth a special trip. Extensive menu with several combinations and veggie options. Some dishes are very good, others unremarkable and over sauced. Meals are very reasonably priced for the quality and large portions. Family friendly, just be aware it can get crowded (bar on premises) and loud (several sports TV... More
