The Red Pepper Restaurant at 282 Orange Avenue in Goleta closed in April 2019 after decades in business. On July 28 of this year the restaurant had a grand opening under new ownership. Chef and owner Leon Hao has been working for the last 9 months renovating the business with a new kitchen, plumbing, restroom, floor and a new coat of paint. There are now TV monitors above the food trays that display the menu. Currently Red Pepper serves Americanized Chinese food with lunch specials and they will add more authentic Chinese food to the dinner menu in the near future. Middle Eastern BBQ kebab skewers and beer are also on their way. All food is served to-go, with separate doors to enter and exit the restaurant. Entree prices range from $10-$17. The new Red Pepper is open Monday-Saturday 11am-9pm. Call 805-679-5247. Thanks to readers Everett and Anne for the tips!
