Best Food Trucks in Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara is truly a special place. If you've never visited this sparkling coastal community a few hours north of Los Angeles, you're missing out. This area features a relaxed pace compared to the city, and some of the prettiest beaches in the entire state. The University of California has an outpost here, and the Montecito area just south of the city continues to draw big money developers and celebrities lining up to build second homes. At midday, State Street awakens as the center of the community, a fun place to stroll, dine and shop. The Farmers Market features amazing produce and wine grown right here in the surrounding fertile soils, Santa Barbara is truly a foodie's paradise! Locally sourced ingredients, prime wines and fresh seafood combine for some truly memorable dining experiences. The Santa Barbara food truck scene here is just ramping up, but here are two of our preferred vendors: Ventura BBQ Co. serves award winning Tri-Tip and Pulled Pork Sandwiches paired with delicious sides, and McConnell's Fine Ice Creams which features Ice Cream that's been made the right way since 1949. Get yourself a double scoop on a warm summer day!

Quality. However I think a "special instructions" (ie no ricotta with meatballs) option should be offered.

How easy it was to find the table and pick up my order. I also appreciated the instructions regarding how to store the cinnamon rolls

Food was really good, but it was expensive for the amount of food you get. (About double "normal price" for a sandwich.) That's kinda a food truck thing, though, I guess.
