Santa Barbara Botanic Garden

Five of us will be visiting the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden on Saturday during Smithsonian Magazine free museum day. Any recommendation for lunch? We will have already driven a couple of hours to get there, so we would like to go somewhere close if possible.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Not sure what type of place or price point you are looking for, but my go-to place for lunch in Santa Barbara is LA SUPER RICA, a great taco stand. However, the lines can be long, and everything is made to order, so it is not quick.

    When the lines are too long at La Super Rica, I walk to LOS AGAVES, a short block away. It is also a Mexican place, but their menu is much more extensive and it is quicker.

    Both places are on Milpas.
