The SantaBarbara.com Visitors Guide, home to The Restaurant Guy blog, turns 25 years old in 2020. To mark the silver anniversary of the guide, which debuted in 1995, before Google or Yelp were born, I released a new website today. The blog is mostly the same (if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it) except that it is now optimized for mobile. There is some funkiness in the desktop version of the reader comments but that will eventually clear up.
Participating restaurants are now featured on the Dining Guide home page and every page in the Dining Guide. The featured eateries also appear on the Dining menu throughout the site (thousands of pages). If you own or manage a food-related business and want it to be featured in the new Santa Barbara Restaurant Guide let me know.
