    Prices are insane, in my opinion. No, I won’t be rushing to try this one. Good luck, people.

    wow. super spendy. $18 for veggys?! i mean, yeah it’s montecito and all, but SERIOIUSLY?

  5. Lucky’s brainwashed diners to think unreasonably high prices means better food! How silly that the concept prevails in Montecito. The original Cafe del Sol on the creek was an incredible landmark restaurant created by very talented people.
