Super Rico in SB

I ate at this great taqueria twice on my trip to Santa Barbara a couple of weeks ago. It is just as good as I had remembered it from my last trip, 3 years ago, and the trip before that (etc.). The thing that every visitor needs to know about El Taco Super Rico is that everyone knows how good this place is, so the lines at peak lunch and dinner times are very long. When I arrived at 12:30 for lunch I had to wait on line 30 minutes before getting my food. Sure, it was worth it, but I noticed that when I left the restaurant around 1:45, the lines were a lot shorter. This was also true when I showed up for a late dinner around 8:20 P.M. or so (if I remember the time correctly). So think about showing up late for lunch or dinner if you want to spend less time on line.

Incidentally, I had better meals at Super Rico than at the taquerias I went to in the Mission District of San Francisco on this trip - not that there was anything wrong with those places, mind you.

Michael (glad to be safely back in NYC after going through airline Hell on Monday, but looking forward to the next California trip)
