Good food, no problems, 5/16/2013
Reviewer: BD from Santa Barbara, CA
The adovada burrito is probably my favorite burrito in town. The people who work there are always friendly to me and service is prompt. Maybe they just have a thing for balding middle aged white guys who are polite and smile.


Authentic and priced right!, 5/8/2013
Reviewer: Amy from Santa Barbara, CA
Don't be discouraged by the negative reviews, chalking it up to 'Gringos' who are softies and ignorant to authentic Mexican cuisine. El Sitio provides consistent, tasty Mexican fare with a flare that isn't found many places in Santa Barbara. The salsa's are home made and flavorful. Food is fresh and always hits the mark. Service is terrific and kid friendly.


Stupid attitude staff!
Reviewer: Hector from Santa Barbara, CA
The food at El Sitio is pretty dank.. But the staff there always seems to have a stupid attitude with everyone, every time I go they always give dirty looks and seem like they want you to get out, someone needs to fire those people and get people with a better attitude.. Food is bomb but staff sucks


Bomb food but staff can be mean :/
Reviewer: Suzie from Santa Barbara, CA
Been here plenty of times and the food never disappoints. Great authentic tastes and generous portions. So the food is why we go! The service however is not so good. The staff can be rude and unwilling to talk, it's just like hurry up and get out. I called in a to-go order and each time the price is different, no thank you, no asking your name or when it will be done. It's just ok and they hang up the phone. Just some simple courtesy would go a long way. I mean they do like return customers don't they? If I were the manager/owner there are a few people I would fire immediately. BTW I was previously a restaurant manager.


terrific food
Reviewer: Lisa Benson from Santa Barbara, CA
The food is very good; it seems a bit over priced. We still come back because of the quality and good location.


biggest fan of El Sitio!!
Reviewer: Zack from Santa Barbara, CA
I think I can say im the biggest fan of this place!! I eat here and have eaten here for years now and still go a few times a week!! The only downside now, is that the Super Burrito is smaller...used to be huge but now its only a little bigger than the big burrito they sell but its about a 5 dollar difference...I wish they read this and start making the super burrito super again!


The best tortas I have ever eaten !
Reviewer: David Golding from Santa Barbara, CA
I lived in Santa Barbara for 5 yrs . El Setio is by farrrr the best restaurant that serves the best carna asada tortas. I moved back to Los Angeles and have not yet found a restaurant that makes nothing close to how El Setio makes it. The service is the best , as long as they make the tortas the same way. I so love that place . I wish I could bring one back home to Los Angeles it would be a line out the door. It would help solve gang violence , gangsters would have to eat with one another and enjoy the great taste of carna asada tortas.


Great Shrimp Rajas and so many choices
Reviewer: Elaine Schoepf from Santa Barbara, CA
I am a huge fan! Everyone is friendly - the folks at the cash register and the folks at the grill smile all the time. THe people waiting for food are polite and smile, too! Wait a minute! am I in California? Kay - that said - the food is delish - que rico! shrimp, rajas, bistek, pork, and so many more choices. This is one of the few places I eat that I don't pour the salsa all over the food to get the flavor strong enough for me! Whoo hoo! (I love that they speak Spanish and English to the customers!)


awesome
Reviewer: mm from Santa Barbara, CA
ive been coming here since i was a baby and ive loved it!! great food but a tiny bit over priced.


Great food
Reviewer: Gail from Santa Barbara, CA
I love this place. Great food and okay service. Always happy to go eat there. Forget and pollo loco or chicken ranch this is real Mexican food.


Great Tacos Great Price
Reviewer: Melodie from Goleta, CA
Finally a place in SB that knows what real Mexican food is! Tacos are great and fresh served with cilantro and onions! Definitely will be going back again


Super Tasty
Reviewer: Harry from Santa Barbara, CA
Really good Mexican food. Don't even bother with the burritos though. The tacos are the shiznit. Good salsas and they even have roasted jalapenos on the side. I was stoked when I happened upon the new opened in Ventura recently. Then I discovered that it's even better that the one in SB! Totally stoked...I'm going there tonight.
