Have to say, this place has taken over my Milpas Mex top spot. Menu is deep with great specials on the board. Always something interesting. They can handle the crowds they get and I always end up happy. Nothing to complain about.

Delicious food all around. Excellent attentive service. Can't go wrong in any way. The chips and salsa were free and really fantastic, too. Best in Santa Barbara.

This place was packed but so worth the wait! If you're looking for a place with really good Mexican food, you gotta check this place out. It's a cute restaurant with several tables inside. There were couples, families, small groups and large groups eating here. Don't be intimidated by the really long line of people. The line moves pretty quickly. The way this place works is you wait in line, order your food, then the waiters/waitresses will help you find a table for your group/party, and they'll bring your food quickly to you. What we ordered: *Agaves Enchiladas - Amazing! These enchiladas were filled with shrimp and halibut and covered in a chipotle sauce. It came with a side of salad dressed with a mango dressing. *Enchiladas Suizas - Very tasty! Nicely grilled chicken with lots of cheese. The rice and beans were well done too! *Horchata - The perfect drink with the meal! We waited 30 minutes for freshly homemade horchata and it was worth it! Service was awesome! There are several parking spaces in the back. But there also seemed to be ample parking on the street in the residential areas. Overall, I was impressed with the amazing service, the quality of the food, and how quickly everything came out. Totally worth the trip!

The Best Salsa Bar in Santa Barbara!!! Hands down! I love this place. They has the best bang to the buck, with quality food and good service. They provide chips at no charge and their salsa bar is the besssssssssssst. Highly recommend to eat there at least once. I go there every day of the week almost for lunch on Del la Vina branch.

Santa Barbara is known for its Mexican food, and it does not disappoint. When I got into town this past summer, this was the first place I ate. I was initially put off as it looks a little polished for a casual Mexican place. I was thinking some a little more stereotypical I guess--smaller, less options, dirtier--but whatever! They have a good 8 different salsas to choose from, of which the salsa verde, pico de gallo, and one other spicy one I liked; the others weren't really my cup of tea, but I'm sure others appreciate them. There was a decent amount of dining space, but we just got our stuff to go. Although they have a large menu that looks great, I kept things basic. I got a pretty damn great chicken burrito here (burrito majado). Not perfect, but up there. The biggest fault was that there wasn't quite enough chicken, but what was there was tender and delclious. They also went a little overboard with the emlted cheese, but all of the ingredients were all of high quality and fresh--especially the guacamole. We also got some chips, which were freshly made and helped us try all of the different salsas. subsequent visits confirmed that burritos are the way to go, with the steak option being solid and the fish and shrimp option being amazing. This is the kind of great Mexican food I wish we had more of in NY: great tasting, reasonably priced (especially for the portion), and with fresh ingredients. It's not that hard people! And yet it is. I'll be back next time I'm in Santa Barbara!

I can't stand reviews but feel guilty not commenting on this place. Some of the best Mexican food I've had, served by some of the nicest people.
