The food was great and very tasty. If you get there at a certain times the line can go out the door and start building out on the side walk.

We stayed in Santa Barbara for just one night and arrived late there. Thanks for the airbnb host's recommendation and we enjoyed a great dinner in Los Arroyos. The nachos was in large portion and yummy! I ordered a swordfish skew and it was fresh...More
