It appears Santa Barbara’s award winning taco shop Lilly’s (310 Chapala Street) is coming to G-Town. This just in from reader Robert:

“While getting a flat fixed at Bike Bob’s in Goleta, the bike shop rumor is that a second Lilly’s is getting ready to open at the former La Carreta [290 Storke Road, Goleta]. So, I went over and talked to the construction folks working at the former La Carreta, and sure enough, they work for Lilly’s and are opening a second location. I verified that they will have the same menu with tongue, brain, eyeball, and the standard taco fare that we all love.”

    I’ll give it another try but did not “get” it when I went there in SB. All I tasted was the grease on the meat, seems like if you like this type of food then Sitio’s will do it for you? I prefer the big handmade tortillas ala Tapatia in old town also…but I’m game for another shot.
