Reviewer: Brian from Goleta
I eat here for lunch and on the weekend. My kids love the Fajitas (age 8, 5,2,0) Seriously, I think they put crack in that chicken salad. Nice people. good find!

Best chicken in town
Reviewer: marci from Santa Barbara, CA
I have been coming to this place for 18 years, when Jerry was around and rafa was his right hand man. Since rafa took over nothing has changed! It's still the best. My family usually comes at least once a week and we get the same thing every time. Our favs are the deluxe burrito, ck nachos, and shrimp fajitas.Rafa and his team are the best. Feels like home walking in there!

Best Char Grilled Chicken in the area, Hands Down !!

Always moist with nice char flavor on the outside. Super friendly guys and great salsas. Other Mexican Fare is Really good too. Much better than the other chicken places in town

Reviewer: Aaron Gosnell from Santa Barbara, CA
Hey the food is yummy 2 my tummy.The steak burritos there rule!!!

Always great food and service
Reviewer: Hugh from Santa Barbara, CA
I've been eating here for about 10 years. The burritos are just the best, I order them deluxe. The chicken is so tender and flavorful. The cheese they use is also very tasty, unlike whatever Chicken Ranch uses. Even the rice is just a cut above and I adore the pico de gallo , the perfect hotness for me. Even the guacamole has lots of flavor and not blazing spicy hot. I've never been ignored, or waited very long for my food but I know to come after the dinner rush. The ribs I found a little weird, they are marinated very tender and taste great but I prefer bbq ribs. I like their tri-tip too on occasion. The chicken however being marinated is what brings me back again and again and the fair prices. I've never been disappointed honestly and I've been there many many times.

Good stuff
Reviewer: Glenn G from Buellton, CA
Good stuff. Recommend the flying burritos except beware of possible small bones in the burrito as they chop whole chickens. A discount card gets you one free burrito and free drinks afterwards.

How did I ever miss this place?
Reviewer: Mike from Santa Barbara
I had the good fortune of eating here when another nearby place refused a discount card. GREAT food, cooked perfectly. Excellent fresh flavor and friendly staff. I understand it's been here awhile and I think it's better than Chicken Ranch or La Gloria. I'll be back!

Authentic Mexican at it's finest!
Reviewer: Chrysta Ramirez from Santa Barbara, CA
I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! I work right around the corner and we always order in at the office for lunch. The prices are fantastic and the food is even better! The customer service is great too! I have never waited in a long line and when I order in the food is done in 5-10 min. I will always come here for authentic mexican food!

Ribs Rock!
Reviewer: Alan Prichard from Montecito, CA
I've been eating at Jerry's since he was operating out of an old gas station at Fairview and Calle Real. The ribs, with a very unique sauce, have always made my day. The salsa's great and the chicken rocks. What I don't understand is why Pollofino hasn't gone franchise. Living in Montecito, I don't get enough Pollofino. C'mon Jerry, open up a Santa Barbara joint!

Better Than Chicken Ranch
Reviewer: Brandon from Goleta
Pollofino is a restaurant often overlooked! I've tried both the steak burrito (excellent) and the half-chicken meal (served with pinto beans, tortillas, etc). Both are incredible and guaranteed to fill you up. The marinade/sauce on the chicken is especially good and the salsa they offer is better than your run-of-the mill salsa. MMmmm...
