Pretty good food at a decent price. Parking is horrible, but I enjoyed eating here. Drinks are overpriced, but otherwise seems a decent value. Fresh made tortillas help.

La Super Rica seems to be the most talked-about taqueria in Santa Barbara; whether that talk is positive is a different story. Some say it is worth the wait. Some say it's good but you can do better. Some say it's terrible. What cannot be disputed is that most people know about it, and that the reviews skew positively. It is a brighly colored white shack with teal trim, and a line that stretches out the door. Inside there is a fair amount of seating at basic wooden tables with white chairs. Service is relatively fast (for Cali at least) as well as friendly, so the line should move fast--except when someone makes a huge order. Everything--including the tortillas-is made fresh, and the prices are only a little north of what you typically see at taquerias. Controversy aside, I like the place a lot. La Super Rica was so good the first time I went, that I came back a second time before my flight back home. During those 2 visits, I tried the following with overlap: tacos con chorizo, rajas, tacos con bistec, alamore de pechuga, huarache and guacamole. First off, the homemade tortillas are heavenly; they almost make the restaurant alone. But there is no doubting the quality of the ingredients used here. The only issue lies in how they are used sometimes. The standouts were the rajas in particular. Maybe it was the seasoning they used, but this combo of cheese and peppers was addictive; combine it with a meat, and you're golden. The alamore de pechuga/chicken came with peppers and onions, and worked perfectly on the tacos. The chorizo was greasy and lightly fried in its own fat from its time on the grill, but not as spicy as I would've liked. Similarly, the tacos con bistec were good but the steak tasted a bit plain compared to other dishes. The guacamole was great the first time I had it, and just good the second time. Their salsa bar has 3 salsas: one red, one green and one that is just chopped onions, tomatoes and peppers with cilantro. Go with the latter, as it is fresh and tasty whereas the other 2 were very muted in their flavors. The huarache was the best I've had, bar none.

Still a huge fan after all these years. The same owner has served me up for as long as I can remember. Like visiting your best friend on vacation. It may have lost my top spot to other places, I always enjoy my visit.

Why does the google description say, "Celebrated Mexican spot for fish tacos"? I don't think they even serve fish tacos. Certainly not what they are famous for.

After hearing and reading all the hype from this place my husband and I (new SB residents) with my family decided to try this place out. We waited in line for 20+ mins because there's only one person taking orders. After we all ordered it came out close to $85 for 6 of us. Which I personally think was a bit ridiculous. We waited another 20+min for our food. I ordered their pozole and steak Tacos which btw don't come with onion cilantro and lime you have to ask for it. My hubby got their Chile relleno which was the only flavorful thing we all ordered . My parents got the "chorizo" tacos which was really Italian sausage links . So overall of you're expecting your grandma's or mom's style cooking don't come here. It's a very Americanized Mexican food joint. Would I come here again? No.

The beans are yummy and the horchata too. Everything is homemade and fresh.

Cliche as it is. Julia was not wrong. Their chile con queso makes me weep. Just made tortillas with a hunk of melted cheese and a perfectly seared poblano, top it with their homemade pico de gallo, and perfection.

great food but the older guy over charges certain people, so watch him when you DON'T get your receipt. he will put 3 instead of 2 tacos on big orders and when you question him, he re-does it really fast so you don't notice and feel rushed because they are so many people lined up.not a reason to stay away--just notice the billing .
