The Menudo!, 8/20/2010
Reviewer: Gregor from Cascade Locks, OR
Years ago (60s) we lived near the original Haley street tortilla plant. On Sunday mornings we took our own container and picked up a quart of fresh Menudo.The corn torts were still warm. Yummmm. Always had to wait in a line, even at 7:30 in the am.

LA TOLTECA (:, 11/1/2007
Reviewer: ashley from LaPlata
Is my favorite place to eat ever. When they give you nacho's as your free appetizer, ask for cheese sauce, it is SO GOOD. and if you want to go there, i reccomend the chicken and cheese quesidilla. They are so yummy, you will LOVE this place. i promise.

It's 2nd Best, 7/15/2007
Reviewer: Laurie Callaway from Tracy, Ca
The original La Tolteca on Haley street was the best. I was sad when it closed. My family has always made La Tolteca our first stop. I now live in Northern CA and come in Santa Barbara a couple time of year. So I go to the La Tolteca on Milpas just to have a taste of the Haley street history. So I rate it sencond best.

It is the BEST!! Always!, 7/14/2007
Reviewer: Samantha Islan from Jakarta, Indonesia
It was my dad's favorite. It is the whole family fav. We used to lived in Santa Barbara and it's been our ritual to eat the Burrito, regularly. Now every time we visit SB, La Tolteca will be our 1st stop. Can't wait to eat all the good food. I love the tacos & the Burritos are excellent!!! Wish they open one in this part of the world.

Tamale Disaster , 12/21/2006
Reviewer: Maria from Santa Barbara, CA
I drove from Goleta to Milpas for two chicken tamales because I had heard they were good and to see if I should order 2 dozen for Christmas Eve. What a disaster. The chicken meat was burnt, the tamale was dry and no matter how much sauce was added to it; it never improved.

Great Tacos!, 11/2/2005
Reviewer: Local from Santa Barbara

Great Mexican food, 6/19/2005

The service is excellent. The employees are very friendly and professional. The food was good and very authentic!

Don´t order the nachos, 3/25/2005

They put canned nacho cheese on their nachos. I was shocked. Other than that, I rate this as a middle of the road mexican restaurant by Santa Barbara standards.

How is this not #1???, 1/7/2005
Reviewer: Sam from SB
I cannot say enough about how much I love La Tolteca. I have been a regular for a long time, and it is hard to go wrong with anything on the menu, especially when it involves the shredded chicken. Definitely the best on Milpas, and my favorite Mexican food of all time!

The Best, 7/21/2004
Reviewer: Brady from Salem Oregon
I have been going to La Tolteca since I was a child. The food has been great every time I have came down to Santa Barbara. Theres a rich taste in culture and the food at La Tolteca.

Excellent Experience , 6/2/2004
Reviewer: Diana Gonzalez from Phoenix, Az
Everything was great, service, atmosphere, the location which is not far from the beach and especially the food. Everytime I´m in town there is no question about where my family and I are going for breakfast, or dinner.

Best.Menudo.Ever., 2/18/2004
Reviewer: Joshua from Goleta, CA
Best Menudo in town to go along with friendly employees. One of the few true local mexican restaurants that accept credit cards (a big +++ for me).

great authentic mexican meals, 12/7/2001
Reviewer: Stephen Lewis from Goleta, CA USA
The service was okay, but the food was great. I have been to this restaurant once, but the I can assure you that it is not the last. I liked the size of the servings and the authenticity of the food prepared for me in just minutes the best. A great place to for lunch and dinner.
