    Quick service - we all received our meals within five minutes of placing our orders; delicious serve-yourself salsa bar with 7 different options; reasonable prices; food quality a step above the normal Mexican fare

    Known for its selection of salsas, Los Agaves is a great place to experience Southern California's Mexican food culture.

    This place is bustling and with reason. The food is good. Lots of healthy yet tempting specials featuring fresh catches. Tasty salsas, delicious sauces, the tender chicken leg in mole poblano is satisfying and always on the menu. Only wine and beer here and wine-based Margarita on occasion. It isn't a sit and relax through a couple hours kind of place. You stand in line and order at the counter, get a number then look for a table and jump on it. This practice might attest to the good food; the crowd speaks for itself.

    This is one of our favorites in Santa Barbara. Great, fresh mexican food. No reservations. Often crowded at peak meal times, but well worth the wait. Portions are generous. $$

    Simply the best casual Mexican food in town...very fresh ingredients and not the heaviness of the usual Mexican joints...Get their early for lunch or dinner because "rain or shine there is always a line"!

    Delicious Mexican restaurant for the area, but overpriced for Mexican food in general.
