Stopped here for lunch while vacationing in Santa Barbara. We have had chicken many many times but this was some of the best seasoned chicken I have ever tasted. Great sides and very friendly service. Not fancy but definitely some good chicken.

If you're looking for fried chicken, this ain't the place. No fried chicken on the menu. It's skinless, broiled (I guess). Healthier for sure, but not Colonel Sanders or Pop Eyes. Not my thing, but maybe yours???

The chicken is grilled perfectly. The tortillas taste home made. Great rancheros means and rice. Coleslaw is good. Everyone friendly. Only thing to make it better would be a side salad.

I eat here all the time and highly recommend it. My only complaint is from time to time the chicken can be a bit salty. I suggest trying the combo plate also the have great burritos

Ate here yesterday. Had the combination plate. The leg and thigh was moist and packed with flavor. The tri-tip easy a bit chewy, but filled with flavor. Since this is a short walk from Cottage Hospital, I came back today and ordered the same thing....More

I ordered a combo burrito plate which included tri-tips and chicken and it was the biggest burrito I've ever had!! The food was extremely fresh and absolutely delicious. I came in with a very large party and they got our food out in no time!

Great quick easy lunch. They have a great bean burrito even though the name is chicken ranch. Their portions are enough to have left overs or share with a friend. Amazing fresh salsa bar.
