I was very disappointed with the tacos. You have to get the meat right. Try some of the competition and make the change. Also, the service is slow. Too bad because you are so close to where I live.

A Goleta favorite for Mexican and burgers both. From tacos to charbroiled burgers to the salsa bar, CalTaco is a local favorite. Breakfast burritos for a great workday beginning or a Sunday Charburger deal for $1.79!

These are the same burgers as the Habit has but you also can get Mexican food. One of my favorites in Goleta.

Delicious food for a fair price. Great Fajitas and Tacos... they do not scrimp on the meat! If you're expecting fancy decor, go somewhere else. But they have what I wanted: friendly service, delicious food, and big portions. I'd go back again and would definitely...More
