Costa Vida serves fresh, vibrant and flavorful hand-crafted Mexican Cuisine.

The company was founded by JD and Sarah Gardner who were inspired to develop a fast food restaurant that served the true cuisine of coastal Mexico.  Serving food that only uses the highest quality, all natural ingredients; Costa Vida is a counter-service Mexican restaurant where your meal is made fresh right in front of you.   Each tortilla is hand crafted daily, and the sweet pork and shredded beef are slow-cooked for several hours to create flavorful, award winning meals.

The menu at Costa Vida is packed with intense flavors which can be customized to fit your taste and dietary preference.  From gluten sensitivity to those looking to lighten their diet, the team can customize their burritos, tacos and mouth-watering salads to fit your lifestyle. With the mantra “made with passion, from scratch, every day”, Costa Vida believes that meals made fresh not only taste better, but are better for you.

With two locations in the KC Metro area, Costa Vida provides catering for any type of event, big or small. Chamber Members receive a discount on their first catering order.
