Best Food Trucks in Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is truly a special place. If you've never visited this sparkling coastal community a few hours north of Los Angeles, you're missing out. This area features a relaxed pace compared to the city, and some of the prettiest beaches in the entire state. The University of California has an outpost here, and the Montecito area just south of the city continues to draw big money developers and celebrities lining up to build second homes. At midday, State Street awakens as the center of the community, a fun place to stroll, dine and shop. The Farmers Market features amazing produce and wine grown right here in the surrounding fertile soils, Santa Barbara is truly a foodie's paradise! Locally sourced ingredients, prime wines and fresh seafood combine for some truly memorable dining experiences. The Santa Barbara food truck scene here is just ramping up, but here are two of our preferred vendors: Ventura BBQ Co. serves award winning Tri-Tip and Pulled Pork Sandwiches paired with delicious sides, and McConnell's Fine Ice Creams which features Ice Cream that's been made the right way since 1949. Get yourself a double scoop on a warm summer day!

This food was amazing! I will definitely get this food again. People were nice and food was ready quickly. We got the hibachi steak and steamed gyoza. Just as good if not better than going to a restaurant.

When ordering, the description of the Chicken sandwich meal said it included fries and a drink. However when I went to pick up my order they stated it did not come with a drink. I received a text message that my order was ready, however I waited 10 minutes for my order when I arrived, then when I received it did not come with fries so I had to wait again and it did not come with bbq sauce when they said it was on the bottom.

The burrito is amazing, I have to have it every time I'm in the office on Thursdays. I just got my coworker hooked on them too and he even went to culinary school. It's just that good! Perfect size, perfect ingredients, don't change a thing!
