Wonderful Mexican food, cooked fresh and consumed quickly - then lined up for more. Really fun to check this out (recommended online so thought we would walk from downtown, and we had a good appetite when we got there). Serves are not too big, so...More

When you can see them in the kitchen hand-pressing the corn tortillas, you know the food is going to be authentic and fresh! We read online these were among Julia Childs’ favorite tacos, so had to check it out. For a counter-service location, the menu...More

Really wanted to love this place, but unfortunately our food was really under-seasoned. The fresh tortillas were stellar and the pico de Gallo and guacamole were awesome as well, but we really could have used some salt. Also remember it’s cash only.

My dentist in NY(!) told us about this place, and how Julia Child had raved about it. We rode our rental bikes along the beach over from Hotel Milo (about 20 minutes) to the lesser-seen east side of Santa Barbara. There was a short line...More

La Superica is a small restaurant offering made-to-order tacos, tamales, rellenos, and more. The lines can be long at typical peak hours for lunch and dinner. Because it's made to order, there is a bit of a wait for the food. Bring cash. It's worth...More

I really can’t say enough about this restaurant. Totally simple and even intimidating from the onset,( don’t be afraid of the line!),but believe me, just the opposite when you finally get inside the threshold and start to look at the menu. Completely different from most...More
