This is a great place for a tasty dinner. The recessed location provides quiet seating in the nice neighborhood. The food was delicious and quickly prepared. The prices are reasonable and it's easy to try lots of flavors, with vegan options and environmentally and humanely conscious meat options, too.

I used Buena Onda for a lunch after a family memorial. The company and food were fantastic. We left them keys to our house and when we arrived all was set up and ready. I can not recommend them enough.

I'm so glad I chose Buena Onda for a family reunion/ birthday celebration. From toddlers to seniors, vegans and meat lovers, everyone was happy. The variety of empanadas was perfect. From the catering menu we added guacamole and fresh made chips, mixed baby greens salad, and alfajors. Easy Take Out and serve. A Completely Delicious Feast!

Buena onda is such a delicious treat! I stop by after work all the time and pick up a dozen for dinner. High quality, delicious food and so unique in Santa Barbara. Make sure to try the chimichurri sauce, so fresh and so good!

Best hidden gem in Santa Barbara! Makes for a great dinner as well as a party! We had Buena Onda cater a party for us recently, our guests were exclaiming over how good the flavor and quality the food was! I think it will be a new tradition for us.

Have fun, eat Buena Onda!

Picked them up right at our designated time, they were warm and savory. Love the Chimichurri and spicy dip. Definitely going to be a holiday tradition.

It was about time the Argentinian "buena onda" finally came to Goleta! Great place, superb hosts and even better food. Bring your own beverage and your empanadas will taste even better.

Outstanding food!! I ordered (in BULK!) for a party of 30+ guests...we couldn't get enough of the empanadas and chimichurri- thank you for making the party such a hit! And many thanks to Tomas & Matias for making the ordering/delivery process so easy!

This place is my newest favorite stop on drives up the coast. The food is insane and the staff was what life is all about. Vegetarian Empanada!!!!

Pretty sure you can live solely on Buena Onda ( Good Vibe ) empanadas. They just moved from Goleta to the commercial kitchen on Haley... I was hooked after the first one, now it's the must have finger food/ dinner/ in- flight refueling staple! Literally just like Mom used to make. Matias and Tomas are onda something here...

The empanadas are amazing -- and so is the rest of the menu. And Matias, Sydney and Olga have the perfect catering attitude, delivering a gourmet experience with a smile & handling any situation with no stress. They catered a family event for us and it went so well, we had them back to cater a company event. Love these guys!
