  • Eat the adobado tacos
  • Awesome authentic tacos. You can easily eat lunch for $6 here with tacos at $1.50 a pop. Beef, pork and chicken are all good. And me likes the spicy salsas and no frills attitude.
  • Taco Perfection.
  • Thumbs up on the adobada - my favorite. And ya gotta try the cabeza for kicks
  • Most authentic Mexican food in Santa Barbara. It may not look like much but the tacos are incredible. Definitely a good stop if you like Mexican food!
  • You've made the trip, so grow some cojones and commit to something different. The beef cheek will surprise you with its juiciness. The tongue has a pleasant texture. The eye is unexpectedly succulent.
  • The tacos adobados are!
  • I always forget that they are closed on Tuesdays.
  • Try tha lengua taco for a more daring choice. My boyfriend couldn't tell. Lol
  • Great local place for tacos! It's hidden!
  • Adobada is bomb!
  • Marinated pork! So good!
  • Try the tacos de tripa dorada. The best!!!!!!
  • Forget cheese, this how it's supposed to be eaten. Adobado's good, but go for the lengua and smother it in onions, cilantro, and salsa verde.
  • Best salsa in Southern California!
  • Ask for the cebollas, too.
  • The adobada tacos are the bomb
  • Quick authentic tacos. Dont worry about the line - it is worth it and seldom more than 15 minutes
  • Delicious, cheap tacos. Only one vegetarian option, but its delicious and the salsa verde is superb - spicy but not overpoweringly so. Get there closer to noon otherwise the line will be out the door
  • Best and cheaper tacos in all SB
