Love taking a short drive to Santa Barbara. Spent the day eating good food, shopping and catching a great movie (The Vow... a must see). Outback, my favorite restraurant in SB (Goleta) now opens at 12:00 noon on Sundays;-) Great food, service and prices.

Even when busy the staff were friendly and helpful. The service was very quick and the food was outstanding, done to exact requirements. The atmosphere, though not really Australian, was warm, friendly and fun. Great value, great food and a pleasure to eat there.
