Every good food town needs an old-school pastrami place to brag about, and Santa Barbara has Norton’s - a tiny little dive a block off the main drag that’s built a following for cheap and delicious diner classics. We always go for the pastrami dip - the lovechild of a pastrami and a French dip sandwich. And yes, it’s as good as it sounds.
