The Santa Barbara Chicken Ranch has been serving Mexican-style mesquite BBQ chicken and tri-tip to hungry area patrons for over 20 years. Try one or both with a side of tortillas, rice and chips. They cook over actual fire (there's no hidden gas grill or frier in the back). Great for takeout; party packs are also available. Their burritos are delicious, and everything is very affordable. And don't miss the salsa bar! It's stocked with fresh salsas, pickled onion and jalapenos that will bring out the smokey flavors in your meal. Sides of fresh guacamole can be ordered, too. Plenty of parking onsite. Open seven days a week!

- Best for Take Out Because: Santa Barbara Chicken Ranch has been cooking up scrumptious mesquite-grilled chicken and tri-tip for more than two decades.
- Best for Homestyle Because: There's more than one kind of homestyle. Enjoy large portions of chicken and beef with wood-grilled flavor.
- Best for Goleta's Best Restaurants Because: The warm embrace of aromatic mesquite smoke is alone worth the trip. Bonus: the food's great, too!
