After to the great radiator shortage of 1698, the Mexican people developed the tortilla to stop cold-footed carnitas from hogging all the covers. Munch on necessity's invention with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of fast Mexican fare at Costa Vida, located in the Super Target Plaza in Lone Tree.
The seasoned chefs at Costa Vida dish up a menu of fast, fresh Mexican favorites blanketed in handmade tortillas. Dive tongue-first into a bowl of queso, guacamole, or salsa served with tortilla chips ($1.99–$3.99). Sweeten up your main course with a raspberry chicken burrito, stuffed with black or pinto beans and cilantro-lime rice slumbering in a tortilla sleeping bag and smothered in one of three sauces ($6.99). Chomp into the fish tacos, broiled fish caught in a tortilla net ($7.79 for two). The sweet pork enchiladas tantalize taste buds with gooey cheese, your choice of sauce, and state secrets of the Ottoman Empire (two for $6.99). Quiet gossipy mouths with a slice of key-lime pie ($3.99) or flan ($3.99). Today's Groupon can be used for takeout or dine in, but is not valid toward catering.
Twenty-three Yelpers give Costa Vida a four-star average:
- LOVE the food here. It's all very fresh (they even make the tortillas in front of you) and the portions are great. – Lauren B., 08/23/2010
- There are a ton of menu options, they don't hesitate to let you customize you order (and are glad to make sure you're getting exactly what you want.) – Jason J., 07/02/2009
Tortillas and salsas are handmade in each Cost Vida store, and the executive chef has designed a menu around ingredients that have never seen the inside of a factory or a dehydrated astronaut snack pack, including fresh cilantro, mangos, tomatillos, and all-natural proteins such as sweet pork and baja shrimp made fresh daily. Dishes consist of Mexican staples such as burritos and tacos filled with cheese, meats, and beans, and lighter fare includes salads packed with veggies, salsas, and guacamole. Traditional Mexican desserts end meals on a dulcet chord with flan, key-lime pie, or sweet cinnamon tortilla.
