You might call it a local grill, but they make - while you look - some of the best and most authentic mexican food I have ever had, including Mexico. No white cloth and silverware here, but very cheap and very good.

The line is long and so is the wait. Be prepared to wait for a while. It is completely worth it though. They have amazing food!

The broad appeal of La Super-Rica makes it an easy recommendation for visiting guests, and it tops the list a family favorite. From picky kids to health-conscious friends it never disappoints. Never. And we've eaten there since the beginning. The line out front is proof...and no matter how long, ALWAYS worth the wait.

Had to get to this place because of all the hype. Tried a few items and waited to be dazzled. Wasn't. The pork taco was a bit dry. I didn't love the white sauce that the rellano or the tamale was smothered in. It was all good, just not "great". I have heard that Lilly's is better so I'll have... More

as food lovers, my girlfriend and I, always prepare our trips not to only to please our eyes but our senses too. Food is part of what I consider...living for eating well and not eating for living. So when we heard some many good reviews about La Super-Rica Taqueria we decided to make the first stop in Sta Barbara (we... More

We had a wonderful lunch here. Yes, it is a dive but often that just adds to the experience. We had the #7 with tri tip steak, sauteed onions and peppers with bacon. Also the #16 special as mentioned below. They both came with hand made (as you watch) tortillas which were really special. The homemade salsa was fresh and... More

Can't pass Santa Barbara without dining here!! Favorites are the Super Rica Especial #16 (spicy pork with Pasilla chile and melted Monterey Jack Cheese) frijoles with bacon, handmade tortillas, and the chilaquiles which are the special for Mondays or Thursdays. If you're lucky (in the summer) they will have the watermelon drink which consists of small diced pieces of watermelon... More
