In January 2015 I wrote that Shalhoob Meat Company at 220 Gray Avenue had opened their Patio Restaurant at the site of their legendary butcher shop. Then in March 2015 the Patio restaurant closed. Word on the street is that the Patio Restaurant section of Shalhoob closed because the City of Santa Barbara needed time to come up with a growth strategy for the Funk Zone where Shalhoob resides.

Reader Annie tells me that the Patio Restaurant has finally reopened. The description of the Patio Restaurant offered by Shalhoob is as follows: Shalhoob proteins are all natural, hormone and antibiotic free, and smoked over oak wood. Our hand pressed burgers are a special grind of brisket, tri-tip and chuck.  All ingredients from our “scratch kitchen” are locally sourced. Every aioli, sauce and dressing is made in house with only the freshest ingredients.” Call 963-7733 or visit

    I walked by today for the first time in a while and noticed they were open again to my surprise. And doing good business at that.

    It looked like they had a better ordering system in place than last time too.

  4. Yes, we have returned bigger and better!

    Check out the new menu at

    Open Mondays for Lunch 11a-4p, with Lunch & Dinner from 11am-Late Tuesday-Sunday.
