    Another Top Mexican Restaurant in SB.. If you want Tacos, we highly recommend it.

    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.

    Claire Thibeau · July 16, 2013
  • Stacy S.

    Definitely order #11 & 12; stop by on Thursday for homemade chilaquiles. Worth the long wait. Cash only.

    Try the Rajas - Sweet, savory - the best!

    Best horchata I have ever had, and I've tried em all. Great tamales. Cash only, and they don't serve chips.

    The chorizo and the hand made tortillas, best ever. Love the casual vibe. I'd eat there over Los Agaves any day.

    My favorite is #16. Come with cash and don't be afraid to try a few things! This isn't your typical Mexican eatery (not the way most Americans think...)

    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.

    Greg Dillon · May 27, 2014
  • Aris B.

    Excellent chuleta, and the lomito suizo is no slouch either. Gordita is spicy but no tears.

    Aris Blevins · July 12, 2013

    When asked if you would like a small or large horchata, large is the correct answer.

    Cash only!!

    Armando Garcia · April 14, 2013

    If the pork and hominy stew is up, get it. Worth a stop on the drive from SD to SF.

    Carlyn Lamia · April 2, 2013
  • Laura D.

    Number 12 is the best!

    Laura Denenholz · July 7, 2012

    The handmade tortillas are better than anything you can get at a supermercado.

    Chorizo Especial. That is all.

    "authentic" = super basic food + super long wait. Food was good if not quite great but be forewarned, especially if you are w/ kids or anyone who is super hungry. (ALSO: best bet for kids is quesidill Read more

    CASH ONLY! , there's a bank 2 block away on E. De La Guerra St. Servings are small so double up your order, Worth the wait.

    lines can go out the door and around the corner, so be ready for a long wait. try Los Agaves down the street to avoid the wait

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

    It takes a little while, but well worth the wait. The meat is delicious and the menu contains lots of queso.

    The tacos, tostadas, salsas, and specialties are pretty much unmatched. Casual to the max, line up for delicious Mexican food served on plastic plates. Read more

    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.

    Verna · July 5, 2014
  • Lara A.

    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 :)

    Lara Alameh · June 1, 2014
  • Chris B.

    The line is longer than you think. It's the slowest taco stand line ever.

    Chris Baccus · May 25, 2014
  • Lea F.

    Their horchata is the best I've ever found in Santa Barbara, and they are masters at pork! Get the Super Rica Especial!
