It is actually a little Mexican market/butcher with a few tables. Authentic but not romantic. Workers and locals are the typical customers. I pick up take out. The tacos and chile verde burritos are to die for. The food is delicious, serving are generous. Kitchen is clean. If you are having a party on the week end they will prepare... More

Authentic Mexican food at affordable (for Santa Barbara) prices! A locals place w/ few frills, just great Mexican food. Known for their burritos, but I liked their carne asada and carnitas tacos. You decide your order from the placards at the taqueria grill, select your beverage, place your order and pay at the store.

I love this place. They're fast, fresh, and healthy. It helps to know a little Spanish when ordering, but even if not, they'll figure it out.
