Tips from locals
Best authentic Mexican food you will every have. Super casual and usually a line but well worth the wait. #7 and #13 are two of my favorites and the homemade horchata is amazing!
Made famous when Julia child recommend it on her cooking show many years ago. No sign on the building and they close for extended periods. If it’s open, there will be a line out the door.
Julia Child’s all time favorite restaurant never disappoints !!! Order a #6 for a bite of heaven ! Bring Cash$ and remember they are closed on Tuesday and Wednesday ! Voted the best restaurant in Santa Barbara by Kat !!!
Famous for Julia Child saying it was the best Mexican food outside of Mexico. It always has a line, but worth the wait!

“This is the locals favorite Mexican restaurant. Most tourists will go to La Super Rica, one of Julia Child’s favorite places. It’s good too but be prepared to wait in a long line. Los Agaves is fantastic. Three locations but this one is the closest. 600 N. Milpas St., SB. Open daily.”

“Fantastic concert space with panoramic views and not to big. Drinks and snacks also available. Take a jacket because it can get chilly as it’s open air. ”
