“Never tire of LSR's grub”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Been chowing here since I lived in SB 10 years ago. Always stop in for a #16, # 1 and maybe a tamale verdura when zipping through town. Lines are long, but move well. Don't sweat the seating, by the time you order and are ready to sit, there will be a table, trust me.

“Excellent Super Casual Mexican- Very Popular”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

This place has a reputation up and down the California coast and almost everyone stops here when in SB. Julia Child mentioned it as one of her favorites and that also brings in the tourists. So this small corner Taqueria is always packed with lines extending out into the street. There is very little parking so I usually on park the street in the neighborhood.
You line up and order through a window ,pay (cash only) and get a number than you stand and wait for an available table- first come first served.
The food is fantastic for what it is. Fresh grilled steak and pork with home made fresh corn tortillas. The stuffed Pasilla with cheese is amazing. This is solid Mexican grill food. Nothing fancy but top quality ingredients cooked to order.
So go with an open mind and enjoy the experience. Wait on line - don't stress and you'll have a good meal.

“Great food for the price.”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Stopped in for a nice lunch. You walk in one side, place your order and then wait for it on the other side. There is tables and chairs, but it gets packed. You better make sure someone is watching your chair while you get up to get your food, because you may come back and it be missing due to the crowd.

As for the food, it was really good and filling. We only ate their once due to the crowd, but I would recommend it.

“Yummy Spanish food!”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

I'm not a big Spanish food fan, but this place was fabulous! It's a tiny, cash-only place, but the food is delicious and the service can't be beat in friendliness and efficiency! Highly recommended!
