Good food

My husband loves ground beef burritos and this is one of the rate places he can get one. These burritos are a good size filled with rice, beans and your choice of meat. The char burgers are really good, reminds me of the drive ins growing up. The prices are in line with the area.

I was very disappointed with the tacos. You have to get the meat right. Try some of the competition and make the change. Also, the service is slow. Too bad because you are so close to where I live.

Get your doctor's nightmare, double char with cheese and bacon. Add peppers and salsa from the condiment bar (who needs ketchup ) and enjoy. The Habit makes a game of it but fails down the stretch. The bonus is the Mexican food, our favorite being the chicken taquitos. The place is tiny but very clean and the outside eating area... More

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!
