“Fantastic mexican food in a "no frills" setting...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

If you want fantastic Mexican food in a "no frills" setting, when traveling through Santa Barbara, you must stop at La Super-Rica on Milpas Street.
It is the best Mexican fast food we have ever tasted!
Every day there are specials.
Look for the "line" on Milpas St. and you will know you are in the right place.
Enjoy!

“Still the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2012

Santa Barbara is blessed with an abundance of good Mexican food. Super-Rica is still the best. It is hard to go wrong with anything on the menu, but be sure to check out the specials on the board about the window where you order. A must stop when you have out-of-town visitors.

“I DON'T GET IT”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2012

You can't find a guide book that doesn't rave about this place. People stand in line for 10-15 minutes to place an order. I admit that the food tastes fresh, but it rates just a tad over "average" for me. If you insist on trying it, go there for lunch. The long line at dinner takes the joy out of it.

“La Super-rica has been a main stay in SB.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

La Super-rica is on the north part of Milpas St., a part of town that most tourist don't go but it is safe and the food is freshly grilled right there and it is mouth watering, yummy mexican food. I go all the time because I live close. It's a lunch kinda place.
