Oakley Featured Local Business - La Costa Taqueria
If you are looking for a great Taqueria in East Contra Costa County, look no further than La Costa in the East Bay City of Oakley, California. This local gem is a well-known institution to local residents. La Costa is located in a beautiful building across the street from the Oakley City Hall. The building features a large dining room and a fabulous outdoor shaded eating area.
East County locals may remember when La Costa was simply a walk-up food stand with outdoor picnic tables. La Costa opened the doors to its new building in Downtown Oakley in 2012. As part of the newly-renovated downtown, La Costa offers a great dining experience for both lunch and dinner. The dining room can accommodate large parties, and on warm days, patrons enjoy pleasant outdoor seating under the shaded trellis.
La Costa is a taqueria-style, Mexican food restaurant. The menu features Mexican staples including tacos, burritos, quesadillas, tostadas, nachos, menudo, ceviche, salads, and other special plates. Meat choices include carne asada, al pastor, carnitas, chile verde, pollo asada, lengua, and cabeza. In addition, seafood choices include camaron (shrimp), jaiba (crab), and pulpo (octopus). Of course, La Costa offers traditional Mexican rice and beans.
One of the defining features of La Costa, and a favorite of the Oakley Self Storage team, is the salsa bar! The salsa bar features a great variety of mild, medium, and hot salsas, as well as fresh radishes, onions, and of course, pickled and grilled jalepenos. Of course, La Costa offers a fine selection of imported Mexican beer! If you are looking for a great lunch place, after-work hangout, or salsa bar in East County, look no further than La Costa.
If you have never been to this local gem or if you are new to the East County (which includes the cities of Oakley, Brentwood, Antioch, Pittsburg, Discovery Bay), be sure to give La Costa a try. All of us here at Oakley Self Storage love La Costa, and we hope that you will love it too!
La Costa is located at 3100 Main Street in Oakley, California.
