Friday Foodie in Santa Barbara County: Why We Love Industrial Eats!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

As you can see from the photo above, this is not a fancy restaurant.  And the building is industrial looking.  The menu is written on butcher paper, and the specials are taped to the case. Ron standing in line in his sage top waiting to order.

We feel ambiance is nice, however, food quality is more important to us.  Pictured above is our lunch.  On the left is the best Caesar salad we have ever had.  It is made with little gems lettuce (a small tastier version of Romaine).  The dressing is perfect with the right dose of anchovies, the Parmesan is aged and the croutons homemade.  (We order it every time we are there).

On the right is our smoked turkey sandwich with basil mayonnaise and arugula.  The bread is made in house and sliced by hand for each sandwich.  The turkey is organic and smoked in-house.  Notice they do not skimp on the turkey portion, nor the arugula.   

They also have two pizza ovens that they use both for pizza and other dishes.  And they have a simple and good list of wines and Prosecco.   They also have homemade carrot cake for those with a sweet tooth.  We pass on dessert, as we are way too full!

If you are ever near Buellton, give us a call.  We would be happy to join you.  Bon Appétit!

As you point out, ambience is wonderful, but a tasty and well-prepared lunch or dinner is always the preferred dish

Will Hamm That sounds good, we rarely have potatoes and it has been ages since I made deviled eggs.  Have a wonderful weekend.  A

Hi Ron and Alexandra- I've read about Industrial Eats from you before so I know it's a winner. When it comes to really good food or ambiance, I'll take the food.

Nina Hollander, Broker may say "'Gutes Essen" and I'd say that's fine food, enjoy your meal. Most of the places we dine are low on the ambience scale but good food with good ambience can make for a GREAT meal.

Kathy Streib I have shared pictures of Superica, Julia Child's favorite Taqueria, and this is a outright shack, but the food is terrific as is the family that runs it.  A

Bob "RealMan" Timm Ron and I will always take good food over ambiance.  I would rather have them spend $$on food quality.  A

Agreed A. but there are a couple of restaurants in town that just remind me to much of my Highschool cafeteria. They do have good food but I like to visit over a meal and I like my conversations to be private even if it's just dining with family.

Hi Alexandra... I love places like Industrial Eats. And this is totally my kind of lunch... especially the caesar salad (I'm always asking for anchovies for mine). I, for one, always leave room for dessert! :))) I do hope to one day enjoy a lunch there with you and Ron.
