I love the small mexican restaurant in Sandy called LA COSTA. It is right near Chin Wah and over in the old shopping center where Fred Myer used to be and the DI is now. It used to be a real tiny hole in the wall when it was across the street in back of Movies 9. But they moved to the old Rafael's site a few years ago. I love going there on the spur of the moment.

The owner there is Benito. He used to have a bright purple car parked outside. You could always tell if he or his wife, Danielle was working, because the purple car would be there. I used to wonder how they could take your order, just from memory, never writing down a dang thing. They still do that. The service has always been one of their strong points. I have always felt taken care of. They are all very solicitous waiters, but they don't hang around taking up your time, although they are very friendly. They do it just right, in my opinion.

My husband used to travel a lot. He used to tell me about waitresses that would sit and talk to the businessmen for 15 minutes and then scoot into the booth and talk some more. I really wouldn't have appreciated that kind of waitress. The waiters and waitresses at LA COSTA are some of my favorites.
My husband always tries his bad Spanish out on them, and they never cringe or get all bugged. I would if I were them, but they just giggle and mildly correct him. He loves it. There is entertainment there on weekends, but we hardly ever go on weekends.

I have a hard time choosing between my favorites there, but everything is delicious and very authentic Mexican. I think my favorites are the Burrito Guadalahara, the Chimichangas, and the homemade tamales. My husband ALWAYS gets the same thing; pork burrito. But I think once he got the fajitas and they were also delicious.
