If you're looking to grab a meal in Goleta - whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner - this is the list for you! The best restaurants in Goleta can be hard to spot, and there's no central restaurant row, so let us be your guide. There's sushi, sandwiches, soup and so much more to be had in Santa Barbara's neighbor to the north, often referred to by locals as "the goodland."
For breakfast, you have a few tasty options. If you like the feeling of a classic diner, or even a (not too) greasy-spoon type restaurant, pull up a seat at Domingo's. Here you'll find morning classics like eggs, hashbrowns and shortstacks. Or, if you're in the mood for baked goods or a fresh panini, make a stop at Goodland Kitchen and Market.
There are plenty of lunch options in Goleta, probably because many of the area's larger businesses and corporations are located here. Sandwich lovers can't go wrong at Three Pickles. Their signature subs and deli stacks are made to order and bursting with flavorful ingredients.
Dinner is usually a casual, family affair in this neighborhood. Grab some Chinese food at the Red Pepper or sit down to watch the game at the Hollister Brewing Company. Their frosty brews are worth the trip!

There are sandwiches and then there are sandwiches. The latter being the variety you are happy to pay any sum of money for, wait in lines for and eat standing up if the situation calls for it. Three Pickles makes both kinds. They make perfectly decent deli stacks - you know, meat, cheese, lettuce, tomato etc. - and they also make decadent and messy specialty sandwiches and "Subs Our Way." The latter boast the meat and/or cheese of your choice topped with a pile of chopped onions, tomatoes and dill pickles dressed in olive oil and oregano. You will need napkins and, oh, probably additional napkins. There is also a glorious fixin' bar (more pickles! and pepperocinis!). Located in a corporate park, it's not much to look at, but there's plenty of free parking! ((805) 964-4585)
