    Spectacular Mexican food. Not your typical fast food Americanized food. Try the rajas and Super-Rica Especial for something different but delicious!

    Bring your kid here and hypnotize them with the delicious food. The tamale, steak tacos and pork lomita were great. Rajas were so-so.

    Lives up to the hype. Possibly the best tacos I've ever had. Cash only and long lines so plan head. Over order but always get at least one order of the chorizo and cheese taco.

    This cash only establishment is the best Mexican food in Santa Barbara. A Vegetarian chile rellano will melt in your mouth and you will want to bathe in the horchatta :)

    The best food south of the border I've ever had. No doubt! Thank you Isidoro for keeping it real for all these years. I regret not taking that job you offered me many years ago. A missed opportunity.

    What a gem! #10 #12 and #16 were on point- basically any one with cheese will do. #7 was a bit bland. Small portions so you can try a lot! And I did.
