A Goleta favorite for Mexican and burgers both. From tacos to charbroiled burgers to the salsa bar, CalTaco is a local favorite. Breakfast burritos for a great workday beginning or a Sunday Charburger deal for $1.79!

Someone said the burgers are "like the Habit" - I disagree, I think Cal Taco makes a better burger. The mexican food is pretty good, too, and the complimentary fresh made salsa is fantastic. A very good value. Recommended.

These are the same burgers as the Habit has but you also can get Mexican food. One of my favorites in Goleta.

Delicious food for a fair price. Great Fajitas and Tacos... they do not scrimp on the meat! If you're expecting fancy decor, go somewhere else. But they have what I wanted: friendly service, delicious food, and big portions. I'd go back again and would definitely recommend it to friends!
