La Super Rica in SB - HUGE disappointment!

My husband and I have relied on Chowhound for the last 5 years, and it has never failed us, which is why for me to write the following review is significant.

Where do I start?

Upon arriving, there was a line as I had expected. Because the reviews were so good, I thought a wait was just par for the course and it would all be worth it in the end. As we approached the window to order, my husband, being a bit health conscious, remarked that the cook's pan was completely charred. I reassured him that all the foodies of Chowhound couldn't be wrong. Splurging on something not so healthy this time would be fine. After the 40 minute line, we waited another 15 minutes for our order to come out. We sat in the makeshift, dirty tent with great hope for authentic, tasty Mexican food. When our food was finally ready, I took a bite expecting something spectacular. Instead, I bit into burned (not charred, BURNED), flavorless meats on equally flavorless tacos. This is what the hoopla was about?? I don't understand any of the previous reviews about this place. A complete disaster and waste of time! Thumbs down!
