Last month, on our way from San Diego to San Francisco, we stopped at La Super-Rica taco stand in Santa Barbara for dinner per my daughter's suggestion. I am so glad she did recommend the place. It is a humble and unique taco stand, but...More

We love this simple but great Mexican taqueria. There is always a line up but it’s worth the wait. Their menu is unique and not american-Mexican. We’ve given up on trying any other Mexican restaurants.

There's a good reason that this was one of Julia Child's favorite restaurants, and there's a good reason there's always a longtime to get in. The food is extraordinary. If you're in the area, go!

You cant go to Santa Barbra with out a stop at La Super-Rica. This is a hidden treasure, We wish they would open one in Chicago We travel to Santa Barbra every August to visit family.

Heavy on authenticity and taste, light on seating and frills. Pure Mexican cuisine, no bells and whistles, just really good food!

Lines out the door justify the taste and quality of the food here. This is taqueria not a Mexican restaurant. Casual place with walk up ordering and enclosed patio seating. Tortillas are amazing.

This was our first stop in California after a full day of flying. We ordered a few tacos to take back to our hotel room. We arrived later in the evening, around 9 pm, so there was not a line. Laid-back, family atmosphere. Very delicious...More
