On a trip home from San Francisco, we consulted "near us now" for quick dinner options. Lilly's was top rated so we decided to give it a try. Upon arrival, the parking lot was packed which is usually a good sign. We tried the Asada, Chicken Fajitas and veggie tacos and an order of the grilled peppers and onions. All... More

I went here with some co workers for lunch while on a business trip. They make really good and really cheap California street tacos here, in both the conventional and also the unusual varieties. Be warned: it gets crowded at lunch.

I get food like this in Oxnard in multiple locations, but in Santa Barbara doesn't feature it a lot.

Whenever we are ordering tacos for a large group we go to Lily's. Authentic simple and delicious. Lots of imaginative condiments and they are small enough that you are likely to try a variety.

While in town on business I was looking for a quick place to eat some local cuisine. Based on other reviews I read I decided to give Lilly's Tacos a try. Fortunately my morning meetings ended early and I was able to get here just before noon and walked right up to the counter (just after noon the line was... More

Some locals recommended this place for great food on a minimal budget and we should have followed the advice sooner. The beef, chicken and pork tacos were awesome as was the price and staff. I highly recommend eating here more than once if your schedule permits.

Just go and get the tacos, you can't go wrong. Don't miss the excellent salsa bar. Very busy at peak lunch time but the line moves quickly. Plenty of parking.

Cannot understand what the fuss is about? The quality of meat may be somewhat dubious, however, would not know due to the myriad of spice/marinade thereon. How on earth an a corn/flour taco shell topped with some version of meat, a few dribbles of onion and cilantro atop be hailed as something to get excited about. Plus the service is... More
