Reader Primetime says in the next year a drive-thru Starbucks will be opening somewhere in Santa Barbara or Goleta. Currently the only drive-thru full menu coffee places I know of are Zizzo’s in Goleta and McDonald’s on the Mesa and on Fairview. I believe city ordinances allow new drive-thru places to only open where there is an existing drive-thru business so that limits the possible homes for the new Starbucks.

    The drive through is going to be at corner of Turnpike and Calle Real. This is the spot that was a Mobil gas station. This location isn’t in the City of Santa Barbara or City of Goleta, hence why it was approved.

    One can only hope this is the long rumored location off the turnpike freeway exit…
