A great omelette and pancakes. Busy local place is great. Service is fast and friendly. Good food, not fancy.

We ate lunch here several times while staying at the Santa Ynez Inn. Food was good with enough variety to meet our needs over several days. Prices were reasonable and the service was good.

This burger joint is family run and serves main stream American faire that tastes good and fills you up. It is small inside, but also has outside seating that’s more enjoyable. The Burger Barn is located on a quiet street and seems to be a local favorite attracting casual foodies from distant locations. For a quite bite this is the... More

This place is friendly, clean, has good food and the option of seating inside or outside on their large patio. There are always locals there, which is also a good sign.

Went for a late lunch and our entire family had burgers. Sat outside in the nice patio area. Customer service barely there -Staff not too welcoming.

Just down-home cooking served in a house-cum-restaurant. Been there forever, always seeing locals, friends hooking up, visitors being wowed. Great burgers, generous salads, bacon that is delicious. Engaging staff. Perfect eggs, no matter how I order them cooked, the kitchen staff always does them perfect. I eat there about once a week, either breakfast or lunch. Really good diner.
