In April 2021 I broke the news that Woody’s BBQ at 5112 Hollister Avenue in Goleta (Magnolia Center) was closing then, a year later, I wrote that Shalhoob’s would be the next tenant. The eatery finally opened while I was out of state for a week, enjoying a total eclipse in Morrilton, Arkansas. “Shalhoob’s is all about quality,” says co-owner John Shalhoob, Jr. “We don’t skip on quality and we believe that as long as we keep our quality up, we will always be in business. Starting with the meat company, we have always dealt with quality. My dad instilled that in us and we are still following his direction.”

Their most popular item is the tri-tip sandwich, that I tried will visiting the eatery, and I am happy to report that it has joined my list of top-ten favorite sandwiches on the South Coast. It is amazing. John Shalhoob Jr.’s wife, Michelle Shalhoob, has been supportive with ideas and dreamed up the innovative covered patio at the new eatery where all the walls lift up like garage doors. This works so well it will probably start a trend in town. Shalhoobs is open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and Friday-Saturday they are open until 10 p.m.
