Los Arroyos is better and I prefer the Rose Cafe on the mesa rather than the one downtown Rose Cafe 2. I'm 12th generation born and raised here in Montecito and my dads mexicano, chicano and my moms jewish, so I have the best of both worlds. Comida De Mexicano is just average here in town because in LA you have the trucks and great places!!! that I go to when I leave paradise here!! my bro's come over to my casa here in Monticeto because my abuelita on my dads side Josephina ran a restaurant in the 1930's and she said that on state street during that period different lamps were placed out front designating what was being served like a green lantern meant "Chlil Verde" and a yellow lantern meant "Carnitas" and all those mole recipes and tacos were passed down and I'm licking my fingers as we speak. Cuca's is totally overrated, most locals don't go there. My grandmothers next door neighbor was Julia Child's here in Montecito and my granny use to go there to La Super Rica a lot with Julia and please don't get me wrong but as soon as the celebrities got the green light,it became nirvana, mistake!!!!! go to the Rose Cafe on the Mesa or Los Arroyo's or even one of the many locations of "Rudy's", like the one on Montecito street and Bath street or upper state. I'm not a tourist and most locals will tell you the best places to go. La Super Rica is quite expensive also, one $ is a misrepresentation! even Steve Martin, Jonathan Winters and other local celebrities frequent the Rose Cafe on the mesa. Bill Clinton ate here at Rose Cafe when campaigning before he became the man!!! and its up on the mesa,away from all the tourist spots. Rudy's is killer the jumbo chicken fajitas burrito is insane,man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and the salsa's are picante. mi hambre!!! la semana que entra mi gente's.

I don't understand the hype with this place. Julia Child endorsed it and now everyone has jumped on the bandwagon and acts as though it's some kind of institution for great Mexican food. It is one of the worst Mexican restaurants in Santa Barbara. There's nothing special about the food, except that it is bare and unexciting, and the location being five feet from a busy street, with fly-ravaged seating on cheap patio furniture that seldom gets cleaned, under a roof of corrugated plastic, may trick people into thinking it's a locals-only bastion of authentic food, but the food is the worst part. If you order a carne asada taco, for example, you get a crumbling corn tortilla with a handful of carne asada. That's it. Go here if you want a sub-mediocre experience, but don't get suckered in by the hype and believe this is good Mexican food.

Wonderfully flavorful and unique food. I've been eating here for 30 years and never tire of the Super Rica Especial - the number 16. If you are want a beans and rice place, don't come here. If you want very fresh and tastes food that you don't get anywhere else - Super Rica is it. The line gets long, go early or later, not at peak times.
