tacos

Along with the rest of Southern California, Santa Barbara is blessed with the strong influence of Mexican cuisine. Taco shops in Santa Barbara are among the favorite local dining destinations of visitors and locals alike, as the humble storefronts provide quick, easy, good-for-any-meal deliciousness.

Since we recommend that every hungry guest at Hotel Milo should at least dabble within the surroundings taco scene, here’s a list of our favorite tacos in Santa Barbara.

Lilly’s Taqueria

Everybody loves Lilly’s Taqueria. Their delicious and eclectic menu masters the simplicity and flavor that’s paramount in a good taco. We’re quite big fans of their beef cheek and marinated pork, but the veggie taco is also a surprisingly good option.

Tacos El Rey

Tacos El Rey epitomizes the authenticity we love in local tacos. Their shredded meat carnitas tacos are so soft and delicious and the chicken with mushroom and garlic is also a must try. One great thing about Tacos El Rey and all of these other taco spots is that the tacos are small and you can try several different ones each visit.

Taqueria Cuernavaca

On point with their salsa and other dipping sauces, Cuernavaca is another awesome joint with an excitingly eclectic menu. Be sure to try the shrimp tacos and carne asada. If you’re looking to switch things up, Cuernavaca also serves up delicious tortas and burritos.
