My wife and I had a late breakfast before our flight. This place is the only dining area past security at the airport. It wasn't crowded and service was fast and friendly. My chicken tacos with black beans and rice was bland and just ok. The cubes of chicken were try and kind of tasteless. The beans and rice were... More

Wish I would have gone for the sliders! Cod was mostly breading and fries were like shoestring potatoes. Service is good and a quiet place to catch up on emails.

The restaurant has fairly promising menu and is only option for freshly made food "to go" at boarding area of airport. The service was pleasant and my order for a club sandwich was ready in under 10 minutes. My advice is to carefully inspect your food when you pick up your order. I opened the food box to see it...

I had an hour to kill so I stopped in for a drink before my flight. The staff is nice and pretty fast, but it takes a looooong time for food to come up. You seat yourself if you can find a spot. Best advice is to order your food to go (to eat on the plane) and have a... More

The Santa Barbara/ Goleta airport is a small airport and you really don't have much of a choice as far as food and drinks are concerned. Well, I had such a bad cappuccino at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at SBA airport that when our United flight got further delayed, we decided to have a little bite at Costa... More

We had a fantastic lunch at Costa Terraza while waiting for our flight at the SB Airport. They have a good menu with great local beers....all without the usual price inflation of an airport.

Where to start. How about the ice tea comes from a nozzle, the Mexican soups are from packages and are full of thickener - no real tortilla in these. The hot dishes are just an excuse to melt pre-made red sauce and cheap institutional cheese on something. I have eaten her twice once I was starving and came away amazed... More
