On my recent trip to Santa Barbara we went to a great mexican restaurant called Carlitos Cafe and Cantina on State Street. I have been a few times before and the food is amazing! It’s truly a great place to eat and it’s always crowded. Usually there’s a wait to get in, but this evening we got seated right away. First I ordered their garden salad with the cilantro dressing. Then I had the red wine sangria with real fruit. And finally, I got chicken enchiladas verde with rice and black beans and they were off the charts good! Although I only ate half of it, as I’m on a diet program, but seriously this is one of the best places I have eaten at. The atmosphere was festive along with the live Latin jazz musicians it made for a beautiful evening. Checkout the video and see for yourself!
