Good Dinner at Costa's Mexican Grill in Branford, CT

My wife and I had dinner after an early movie on Sunday at Costa's MG&B.
We started with house-prepared chips and salsa, which were good - and then even better after we requested that they punch it up a bit.
Costa's has both a small dining room (ie,15 tables max) and a larger outdoor covered patio wuth a great view of the pretty Indian Neck marsh.

Their menu is broad and includes all the standards.

My wife ordered their veggie burrito, which was really only fair to good.
I ordered the combination fajita - ie, beef, chicken, and shrimp and all the usual acompaniments.
The tortillas arrived fresh and warm.
I graded the fajitas A+; they were excellent.

The portion was quite large, so I shared with my wife.
We both felt that Costa's was worthy a return trip.
