I’ll get right to the point. Restaurateur Carlos Luna and his team never disappoint. If you find yourself strolling Santa Barbara in search of a meal that’ll elevate that vacation vibe, swing by for a spicy Mezcal margarita and a plate of enchiladas verde: two chicken or beef enchiladas with melted cheese, green sauce, sour cream, and queso fresco. They’ll gladly whip them up with rice and cheese if you’re not a carnivore. The bar staff also knows what they’re doing, so ask for suggestions if you’re unsure of which way to go. If you can handle some heat, the spice and smoke from this margarita manages to soothe and transport. Whether you’re a local or looking to dine like one, this is THE spot in Santa Barbara.
