Of you look for a real Mexican palace with great mole tacos and burritos for a small budget: this is where you need to go. Perfect and original, few places to sit outside and to go.

The folks who patronize Romanti-Ezer clearly don't know the truly great taquerias in Santa Barbara.

Don\t mistake my review, this place is quaint with good food and friendly service, but seriously there is no way in a million years it deserves even four stars. It's pretty good, but take a walk half a block up to Kanaloa and you'll get a four-star lunch. But of course not as cheap.

IMHO Romanti-Ezer is an OK taqueria, but in this wonderful town where half the population is Latino, there are much better places to get your taco or burrito fix.

I go here because they have the best "grilled" fish tacos I have found yet! Homemade tortillas, grilled fish seasoned with simple ingredients. Eat it here (not to go) so tortillas do not get wet. They are kind, efficient and offer chips while one waits in the patio area. The only reason why I am not giving it 5 stars is because I'm vegetarian and have not ordered any other items.

We stopped at this little walkup place a couple of days ago just to get some drinks on a hot day, and were intrigued by the menu. So yesterday we decided to have a quick lunch there before we went to a matinee performance. Wow, what a great idea that was! I love a good carne asada burrito, and this one was top of the line! Couldn't eat the whole thing, but came close. Lots of meat, great sauce. My Lady had the chicken mole, proclaimed it to be the best mole sauce she's ever had. Price was right, service was excellent. There's a very nice patio to enjoy your food. We'll be back to sample the rest of the menu!

On Chapala just behind Paseo Nuevo shopping center, you'll find this unpretentious looking taqueria with seriously good food at reasonable prices. The corn tortillas are hand made, fresh and delicious. I had the carnitas tacos, which had a very generous pile of tasty and not greasy meat. After ordering at the sidewalk window you get a basket of fresh chips topped with a little yummy mole and cojita crumbles. Then you can take a seat on the good size patio - Dog Friendly (which is hard to find since a lot of taquerias you have to go inside to order)! Or there is also indoor seating. They bring your order to your table. Also nice. Definitely seemed like locals only since most tourists don't venture far off State Street, but it is very close to everything. Give it a try, you won't be sorry or hungry (nice portions). Children's menu available too.
