California Tacos and Taproom (not to be confused with Cal Taco which is open for business as usual) has closed their restaurant at 956 Embarcadero del Norte in Isla Vista. They opened in January 2019. This address is also the former home of Grilled Cheese Truck, Santa Ynez Burrito, Kogilicious, Korean BBQ House, Berrilicious, and Bernardo’s Ice Cream. California Tacos currently has locations in Solvang and Buellton, and will soon be opening an outlet in San Luis Obispo.

    Don’t forget Bernardo’s ice cream at this location! There was one on Stearn’s Wharf and one in Arroyo Grande too. The AG location became Doc Burnstein’s, which recently closed. Now Rori’s is going to open in the AG spot. Hopefully they will keep the train.

    Darn. What’s going on? Those tacos were delish. Oh well.

    Hmmm, thought this had already been reported. It’s been closed for like a year.
