La Super-Rica Taqueria, Santa Barbara

622 N. Milpas Street (corner of Alphonse Street)
Santa Barbara , California
Tel: 805 963 4940's insider take:

Super-Rica is one of Santa Barbara's most cherished spots, even though it's on the fringe side of town and basically just a white taco stand with turquoise trim, a walk-up window, a tent-covered dining area, and white plastic chairs. It was a favorite of Julia Child, who spent her last years in Santa Barbara. Handmade tortillas form the basis of the menu, which includes tacos, taquitos, chilaquiles, tamales, and a variety of sopes. The food is fresh, made right in front of you, and so good that loyal Super-Rica fans will drive up from Los Angeles just for tacos and the tamal de verduras, a vegetarian tamale made of chayote, cheese, corn, zucchini, potato, chile strips, and tomato with a cream sauce. There's always a daily special, such as chile poblano stuffed with cheese and beef, chicken, or pork.

Open Thursdays through Tuesdays 11 am to 9 pm.
