I haven’t had much Costa Vida until recently and now I’m here to tell you that if you haven’t tried it, you may be missing out.

Following a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Costa Vida founders JD and Sarah Gardner were inspired with a vision. While the surf lapped at their feet and they enjoyed the delicious freshly made local cuisine, they brainstormed how they could bring this vibrant lifestyle and incredible cuisine home with them. The result was the first Costa Vida location in Layton, Utah.

Being true to the cuisine of coastal Mexico, Costa Vida food is made fresh in each restaurant’s kitchen. Each tortilla is hand crafted daily and served hot, ensuring that no customer will ever have to eat a factory-made tortilla pulled from a bag. The sweet pork and shredded beef are perfectly seasoned and slow-cooked for several hours to create the signature intense aroma and flavors of Costa Vida.

This employee is Thomas. If you happen to run into him, he’s one of my favorites. Ask him to make it “damn good” and he will make an amazing plate.

I was given a tour of their kitchen and I can personally say that chefs were hard at work preparing all of the food by hand in the kitchen. The tortillas are made fresh in front of customers (a kid favorite) and I watched as meat and beans were checked and prepped and even the cakes were being made (with real eggs!). I am also always impressed with their employees. They are always kind and helpful.

The only thing I have ever ordered from Costa Vida has been a burrito, almost always filled with pork. However, more recently I have been converted into trying new things and it was fantastic! I feel like I’ve really been missing out. Two of my new favorite dishes are the shrimp tacos and the steak enchilada with onions and green peppers with a corn tortilla. I had no idea they were so good!

Costa Vida also offers desserts: ┬áTres Leches, Key Lime Pie, and Caramel Flan. Even though I don’t like caramel, I actually really love flan and Costa Vida has a really delicious flan!
