We've been to multiple locations of Costa Vida... all seem to be alike in their menu and quality. Just good fresh food. We specially like their sweet pork.

We are regulars at Cafe Rio and love it. I have tried Costa Vida a few times but after trying it again, it's really just average and does not compare to Cafe Rio. My burrito was mediocre, nothing too fresh tasting and the meat portions appeared to be skimpy. The shrimp was slimy in the taco and the horchata wasn't... More

Stopped at the Costa Vida at The Junction in Ogden yesterday. Still good, but we all felt like they are getting pretty skimpy on their food now. Hardly any meat in the salad & burritos, not even enough to be able to taste it much. I asked for double pico, and no guacamole, he put the guacamole on, then tried... More

It's hard to say anything too bad about a place we return to a few times each month, but it's clear to us that the portions of meat are smaller than what we get at Cafe Rio. That being said, the food is good and either the flan or the cinnamon tortilla is a nice way to finish off a... More

I ate here recently for work. Great food and the line is much better than Cafe Rio. The small salad was plenty for lunch. The eating area was kept clean and they seemed to watch it well with the number of people that were there for lunch. This has plenty of sitting room and places for kids to eat. If... More

The food is fine, but come for the view! There is a glasd window that separates the restaurant from Flow River, an indoor surf park. It's very entertaining to watch people surf while you eat.

I love, love, love the sweet pork salad! It is hard to stop eating it. I crave it! I had a corn tortilla for the first time here and thought it was fabulous. Make sure you get the ranch on top, it is amazing. Many got the burrito and loved it. This salad though, with rice and beans on top... More

The South Ogden, Utah location provides consistent service and quality food. They make a very good smothered burrito and I really enjoy their sweet pork salad. If you had a bad experience at another location, I'd say give this one a try.

This review is for the Costa Vida in Downtown Ogden, not on Skyline. First time I ate here I got food poisoning. 2 years later, company lunch was at Costa Vida, thought i'd give it a second chance. Service was horrible, pre ordered they said 40 mins got there at 33 mins, paid and waited another 30 mins. Got the... More
