La Super-Rica Taqueria was closed on Christmas Day, but Cesar's Place was open and takes credit cards! The service was very friendly and helpful. We had the delicious Caldo de 7 Mares, and it seemed that about half the restaurant ordered the Caldo de Mariscos (shellfish soup), or our soup. If you like bouillabaisse and other shellfish soups, it is... More

Was looking to go to La super Rica taqueria, but they didn't accept credit cards and we had no cash so we wound up at this place just a block north. Great food, you get warm chips with salsa the minute you sit down. Pretty much every entré on the menu is $10 or less. We had the fish tacos... More

The place is alright. Waitress' were very friendly and quick! The water was undrinkable (ironic that I couldn't drink the water? lol) and not sure why. But the food was good. My husband and I both ordered burritos. They were huge! We didn't eat again for about 7 hours. I got the vegetarian one - wouldn't recommend it. I have... More

Santa Barbara abounds in really good Mexican restaurants. Cesar's Place serves unique authentic Guanajuato style seafood - and, if you're lucky enough to get there before they run out of it on weekends, birria. The service is excellent, the crowd is Mexican non-touristic. I've lived here 15 years and never heard of it. What a find! Really the taste of... More

We were recently visiting Santa Barbara for my college reunion and wanted to find a place to pickup breakfast burritos to eat at East Beach. I am not a huge fan of breakfast burritos, especially if they are spicy. However, I have to say that the burrito I had was hands-down the BEST one I've ever eaten. We highly recommend... More

I really wanted some good mexican food after not living in California for years and I have found it. Got there for an early lunch at around 10:30am for the BEST Chili Rellano, tacos and enchiladas I have ever tasted. The service was wonderful, the food was hot and I cannot wait to go back! This is the best food... More
