They give you a large free basket of what looks and tastes like home-made tortilla chips and a bowl of spicy dip - that's a great start. I had a chicken avocado salad which was well made and dressed. I sat outside and the busy road runs very close which is a bit of a negative. Service was perfect.

My daughter and I ended up here while in Santa Barbara. Wasn't too sure about going in because no one was there except for a few people. We were seated quickly and given the menu. It was quite small, I think it was the lunch menu, maybe I should have asked for a full menu but not sure they would... More

We stopped here two nights on our 3 day visit to Santa Barbara...but for a drink, and we wound up ordering some appetizers....drinks were great and they give you an ample supply of chips and salsa...atmosphere very appealing with a long well-appointed bar.. restaurant was crowded..all tables occupied. Excellent variety of food!

A great place to sit outside with a glass of wine, a few sides and watch the world go by. Very friendly, helpful staff and a great way to spend an afternoon

Service was great, margarita very good, but unfortunately food was average. Nothing special, kind of bland. Definitely not bad just lacking in flavor.

With the new repositioning of this restaurant, we wanted to try Casa Blanca's happy hour (actually hours.....3-6pm and all day Sunday). Excellent value: $7 Margs + 3 tacos for $7. We tried the Al Pastor (very good), Baja fish (very good) and the succotash (good). Also went for the chicken nachos (would like more chicken and less chips). With some... More

Dined outside in their courtyard for a pleasant lunch of Mexican food. The chimichanga was excellent and more food than I could eat. Drinks were interesting also.
