We wanted a casual lunch, with authentic and good quality Mexican food and found Super Cuca on yelp, it was a great find. We all ordered various types of burritos and they were fantastic. The prices were on the higher side for very casual dining but well worth it and the staff were friendly.

Just absolutely love this place. Went to get a breakfast burrito and it made our whole day! Just delicious with so many choices. Very casual, clean patio area for dining and some parking in the back. Love it!

This place consistently wins the "Best Burrito" category in the Santa Barbara Independent's readers' poll, year after year. It is my favorite burrito spot in SB and I guess it is everybody else's, too. You can get a massive bean and rice burrito for just $3.99, cheese 55 cents extra, or go more upscale with about 15 other varieties containing... More

Super Cuca's is a Mexican food institution in Santa Barbara. Today I had the chicken soft taco and the carnitas soft taco. Both were fantastic

We were craving authenttic mexican food while visiting Santa Barbara and learned about this place through TripAdvisor and found it a really nice, cheap, authentic mexican food restaurant. Nothing fancy. What we were looking for. Portions are huge. We loved it.

This place is great. Everything is packed with flavor and there just happens to be a carniceria attached. The chili de arbrol salsa and salsa verde are great condiments for the dishes. Every time I'm in SB, I stop by.

One of my clients recommended this place a couple months ago, and since I decided to spend my trip coming back to LA in SB, I had to try Cucas. Away from the tourist traps of State, I like their menu, which had too many choices. I went with the Super Combo plate with veggies and pastor as my meat,... More
