Costa Vida Goodyear Arizona Opening

Last Friday night we were invited to the opening of our SIL's newest Costa Vida restaurant in Goodyear, Arizona.

We are so excited to now have a 3rd location in Arizona to be able to eat our favorite food.

If you live in the Goodyear area (or are driving through) you can find the newest Costa Vida at 13233 W. McDowell Rd., Goodyear, AZ

We have watched Dano work long hours for the opening of this latest store.

His greatest support has been our daughter Amy.

As busy as he was with taking care of so many details, especially during the first few hours of opening, Dano still took the time to stop and spend a few moments his children.

They clung to him and had so many questions.

We are addicted to Costa Vida food.

They use all fresh ingredients and everything is made from scratch daily.

If I had to choose a favorite (although it's like being asked to pick a favorite child) I would say I love their salads the most.

Their fish tacos are the best I've ever had....

...and their chips and queso is the best I've ever tasted.

Trust me, I've tried a lot of versions in many restaurants, and Costa is the best.

Mr Cactus always insists on getting their flan for desert.

Yum, Yum, Yum!

The food is very affordable, and there are coupons available on their web site!

They even offer a drive through at the Goodyear location.

My daughter Amy commented on how much easier this makes it for young moms with children who want Costa Vida food, but don't want to get everyone out of their car seats.

Their latest car has now been wrapped with Costa Vida.

For other locations in Arizona:

1744 Val Vista, Mesa, AZ

21152 E Rittenhouse Rd., Queen Creek, AZ

and more in the planning stages!

congratulations to Dano on three locations! Sounds like a very hard worker.If he had a location near the the Grand Canyon we would try it but that is the only place in Arizona we will be going to on this trip. The restaurant looks really nice.

Sierra Vista could use a good place to eat. Lots of restaurants down here but so many are icky. Good places to eat always have a long waiting line to get in. The menu at Costa Vida sounds delish!

Oh Nedra!! How exciting!! You are one proud MIL and Mom!! The food looks soooo yummy, lucky you and those little ones, they are just too cute. What a wonderful family!

Wow Nedra, the food looks so yummy. Does this mean Dano is a chef? Or he is the owner? How lucky to have your very brand of Mexican restaurants. I wish I live near enough to go there - thanks for sharing - Hugs Nat

Nedra, what a great time for your family. We love Costa food, especially the sweet pork, either in a salad with mango dressing or in a smoothered burrito or as simple as a quesidilla (SP). The deserts like Flan and the cake are the best. Wishing them success in the new business.

Congrats to your family. You are right where you should be right now with them in Arizona. Success is there for all. You should be really proud.
