If Super-Rica is the king of Santa Barbara’s Mexican food, Lilly’s is the queen. Located essentially under a freeway overpass, this extremely popular taqueria doesn’t clutter your vision with burritos or quesadillas - Lilly’s is all tacos, all the time. Their Abodaba (marinated pork) is a must-order, and while you may not have woken up thinking you’d eat beef lip tacos today, you absolutely should.
