For me this is as good as food gets. Everything is simple, but absolutely perfect. If you haven't been, I highly recommend this place. I'd give it six stars if I could!

Many of our friends and relatives love this place so you should give it a try. The ambience is festive and feels like a slice of SB life. The flavors are good, but there is a lot of oil in some dishes and we don't always feel we have been so good to our bodies. It can be fun, though,... More

Every time I come to this place, the food is delicious and they always serves high quality food. Any one of the items on the menu is good and my favorite is the mushroom tacos on the specialty menu - outstanding! There's typically a line out the door, but definitely worth the wait.

Amazing! I had a #11 and a #16, both had pork. The tortillas were homemade....FANTASTIC! Lots of cheese on each item. The sauces had just the right kick. We had guacamole for the table, delish, and a perfect companion to the food. There can be a line. We waited about 15 minutes to order and about another 15 for our... More

Two things make this taqueria a standout for me. First, the red chile enchiladas were probably the best I've ever had, with incredibly complex flavor, and I say this as someone fortunate enough to spend a few weeks in New Mexico each year during which time I gorge on red and green chile. Second, the atmosphere is wonderful, with a... More

It had been five years since my last visit to this place, so well known they don't have to have a signage saying the name of the business. I remembered the address and recognized the corner turquoise and white building and saw the line, (longer than I ever remembered) and decided it would be worth the wait and it was.... More

La Super-Rica is one of those tiny places that gets into one's consciousness and never leaves. We lived in SB 30 years ago and enjoyed La Super-Rica then, so on a recent visit, we had to see if it had changed. Happily for us, all was the same, from the white and blue wooden exterior to the few tables inside,... More

We know good Mexican food from the not so. Because obviously, we are part Mexican. This is not what we we're expecting after 30-45 minute line and wait. We we're disappointed and probably should have chosen the other option from Yelp, Lilly's Tacos. Unfortunately, it was overpriced and did not live to its expectations. Maybe those who don't have much... More

I had heard it was the best thing ever and there was a pretty healthy line (20 minutes or so) just to order which seemed to back up that claim. I was pleased with my tacos and others with me were pleased with their food but I honestly liked the tacos I had the night before somewhere else better. The... More
