    While I’m no fan of Lito’s, I must admit that the chili verde is quite good. I’ve always found the rest of the menu items are to greasy.

    Burrito Tradicional at Delgados in Carpinteria best chile verde.

  9. Brendan says:

    The consistently best chile verde I’ve had is at Presidio Market. They don’t have a platter though, just burritos/tacos/etc.

    I’ve also had good chile verde at La Chapala Market in Goleta, although it’s a little less consistent.

    Domingo’s & Pepe’s, Mulligans too! All three are great, need to try Lito’s, love their Chili Colorado!

  11. Nobie says:

    Thank you everyone. Looking forward to trying the ones I haven’t. Great suggestion.

    If you make it down to Whittier, try Cilantro’s Tacos’ Chile Verde. It’s very good. I was just there on a trip down to SoCal.

  12. Suzanne says:

    Del Pueblo has a good one as well!

    Oddly enough, my husband and I love the chile verde from Cajun Kitchen, especially if you have it for breakfast! Supper yummy. We also like Pepe’s.
