El Trato Real!

Go often and try as many as you can! This place knows what they're doing.....seriously good food. I live in LA, grew up in San Diego and Super-Rica is one of my favorites anywhere!

Before street tacos were all the rage, there was La Super-Rica! The bistec tacos were superb. I do not eat a lot of chorizo, as it is sometimes greasy, but the chorizo tacos here are absolutely delicious. The guacamole was really fresh, as are the corn tortillas made while you watch. The horchata was superb! Be aware that you will... More

I've been going here since I was a kid and I can't ever recall not having an excellent meal here. Their food is absolutely delicious and everything is freshly made. I'm absolutely shocked that this place isn't ranked higher because among locals, it's a definite favorite!

We had heard a lot of good things about this place and we love Mexican food. We didn't mind waiting and the place isn't fancy but that is the charm. The staff were lovely. But everything we got was bland and just not that good. The tortillas are delicious but we were just really disappointed. Might try it again to... More

First you should know that my boyfriend and I love Mexican food. LOVE IT. We waited in line (with my sister) and we got 2 of everything on the menu (which was really pricy for mexican food). Everything was so tasteless… the only good thing about this place was their freshly-made tortillas. People rave about this place, and we were... More

My husband found this restaurant a month ago.....yummmm! Easily the best Mexican food you will ever eat! Plan on standing in line for at least 30 minutes to order. Many chefs and celebrities eat here...closed on Tuesdays and Wednesday's.

Loved this place. Authentic Mexican, not over done, very comfortable to dine there. Fast service, great prices. We ordered so much food and it was all of $25. Tried these delightful little parcels that melt in your mouth with some kind of liquid inside sooo good. Amazing and worth the line to get in. definitely will go again.

A great little place. Seems like it's family owned, and it was so cool to see a woman hand-rolling tortillas and placing them right on the grill. Not sure if it gets fresher than that! I got chicken tacos, and they were very good. A bit dry overall, but the tortillas really sealed the deal. Patio-like dining or take out,... More

I usually run in the opposite direction when I see a line outside a restaurant but this is really an institution in SB an worth waiting for... the food is excellently prepared with just the right amount of spices...it is not a table cloth restaurant, more like a taqueria but has great food you can get addicted to.. ;-)
