We ordered food thinking we could eat on all the picnic tables they have outdoors since there were multiple people sitting and drinking beer there. When we sat down to eat we opened up our bags and they ran out and said "YOU CAN'T EAT HERE." Sooo people can sit and drink beer no problem, BUT you can't sit, drink beer, and eat food?!?RIDICULOUS! They were so rude. No signs anywhere saying you can't eat on the patio. Terrible customer service. One girl in our party  was using the bathroom so we had to wait for her to finish and they came back again asking if we were leaving even though 2 in our party ordered beer. More...

The Shalhoob's NEVER disappoint! Whether we are ordering meat pack or ordering food (to-go for now until we are able to dine in). The quality of meat is much better than what you will find at the grocery store. this really came in handy when the grocery stores were out of everything!!This is a local business/restaurant that I will continue to support the food and  customer service are AMAZING!!! Last thing... try the bacon jam burger!! More...

We are local and it was our first time here living in town for 15 years. We got burger and tri-tip sandwiches.  The quality of meat was excellent Without a doubt. We picked up our food due to the restriction of restaurant closure related to Corona virus. We were planning to have our food in the car. There was no napkin and no utensil in the bag to have our salad which was disappointing. Also the price is high, we paid $80 for three sandwiches and three cans of kombucha before tip. Not worth the price. More...

Shalhoob what a treat, best lunch I ever had in Santa Barbara.  I ordered the avocado sandwich with fries on the side.My dad ordered the classic SHALHOOB sandwich with fries as well on the side and I also got the Mexican street corn. When I took a bite into the Mexican street corn it was so luscious and creamy that I was about to explode of how good it was, all of the flavors with the cheese, mayo, and chili pepper where combining to make the best flavors of corn. Then I had avocado sandwich which was sourdough bread, cheese, beans sprouts, avocado, salad dressing, and tortilla chips. Once I took a bite into the sandwich it had a crunch that was so crispy that I couldn't wait to get another bite. You could taste all of the ingredients bonding together to make the ultimate flavor. With the cheddar cheese being zesty as possible. The dressing combining with the avocado and the bean sprouts made such a tangy flavor.Lastly the bread making a crunch to cover it all up. When I took a bite of my father sandwich I can taste the barbecue sauce and feel it dripping down my leg. The meat was so tender and soft that it had the texture of a marshmallow and melted in you mouth. And the bread mix perfectly well with all of the other ingredients. I recommend this place very much and if you want to get real meat go to shalhoob's. More...

On a trip to SB we decided to eat dinner at Shalhoob before heading home. Shalhoob is not located on the main street where lots of restaurants, bars and wineries are located.  I checked them on Yelp first was pleased that they had 4.5 stars.  There is lot of free parking available.  Santa  Barbara has changed a lot, a lot of business here now charge for parking.  We ordered the street corn which came in a pan, garlic fries, chicken wings, smoked chicken, ribs & mac N cheese; lot of food for 2 people...enough to feed four, buttered bread!!!  :-) The food is so tasty, they give very large portions as well.  They offer plenty outside seating with shade.  They cater events.  Some of the tables are barrels with umbrellas.  The service was GREAT.I highly recommend this place, you won't be disappointed.

I had the chicken and the tritip sandwich with fries. Great flavor on both meats!! Chicken - Flavorful, more on the peppery side. I don't think I've had chicken that tasted like this, so good! Tender and tasty! Came with slices of bread with butter and seasoning. TriTip Sandwich had salsa inside that was diff from most tritip sandwiches. It gave the sandwich a nice kick! On sliced french bread also has a lot of flavor. Packed with lots of meat! Overall great sandwich and the fries were so addicting!! Great restaurant! Great Food! More...

In my 43 years on planet earth, I've never had a turkey sandwich like the one I had here. It was...can I say...orgasmic! ! And the michelada I ordered was just like I make it at home, spicy! Finally, the service was nice and very conscious of keeping everything cleaned. I'd highly recommend coming here to eat if you are visiting. More...

I've been really impressed with Shalhoobs especially during Covid! They are one of the very few restaurants that allow happy hour and thankfully past 7pm! ! HALLELUJAH. The food is tasty and they serve great portions and they do a good job with social distance. I've been coming here often and will continue to support them. They also do takeout boxes which are great for birthdays or picnics with a group! Highly recommend this place More...

Grabbed a spiked kombucha while waiting for a to go feast. Love that all the grilled meat plates come with garlic bread and pickles.  The street corn appetizer is my go to and I have a hard time resisting the mac and cheese. Great patio. All the seating is outdoors, but there's a good amount of shade (important in sunny SB). They also make great jerky if your looking for a small snack and have great beer prices on pitchers happy hour. More...

Great sandwiches and very nice staff. Pricey but the quality is there. Only knock was ordering to go they wouldn't include a drink in their combo (usually wine/beer but I asked if they would do iced tea and was told no). Still great food.

We came here while on a recent visit to SB. It had some really awesome photos online and it looked like it had a cute patio area, so why not? We ordered the brisket, burgers, some wings, and fries. The burgers, wings, and fries were a hit, however, I think the brisket could've used a little more fat. It was on the drier side and needed to be accommodated by a lot of BBQ sauce to give it some juiciness. The patio was super cute and perfect for a summer day. The tables were spaced out, keeping social distancing in mind. They do close earlier than  I thought they would, so I'd just double check to see what time they're closing on the day that you decide to visit to make sure you relax while dining there. More...

A lot of people waiting around for refills or other items requested Food wise not too impressed the pulled pork was insanely salty couldn't finish it and the shalhoobs burger was really greasy the bun was soggy and sloppy. The street corn and salad were better than main food. More...

Absolutely love the fact that this place still offers happy hour during Covid times. I believe its Tues-Thurs 3pm to close & Friday 3pm-5pm. Such a great deal with their happy hour prices -- half off on any handhelds and appetizers. They have a large outdoor patio which is a plus especially during this time. So how their system works is that if you want to dine in, someone at the front will give you a table number and seat you at your table. Then you would wait in line to order & give the cashier your table number. Food will be delivered to your table. I do have to say the last couple times I've been here food has been coming out quickly and their customer service has been great. One of the better places for Covid outdoor dining. More...

My friend and I came out to Santa Barbara to beat the LA heat this weekend, and we decided to check out this spot for dinner. I immediately loved the backyard BBQ feel of the place. Alicia is truly hostess with the most! She really set the tone for our experience, and I can always appreciate a kind encounter. She recommended the Tri-Tip sandwich, which my friend absolutely loved. I ordered the Chicken Cesar sandwich, which was also phenomenal. You can also never go wrong with a side of elote. Mmmm!

Shalhoob's is a great place for dinner! They have delicious food and a large outdoor patio. We decided to get our food to go and take it for a beach picnic, they have it dialed in. There is someone at the front entrance directing people and the to go orders are brought out there so you don't have to go far to find your food. And they are very fast, we ordered around 6 PM on a Saturday and it took 20 minutes!While their individual meals (tri tip tacos, avocado salad, tri tip sandwhich etc) are all super delicious, a go to for us has become the BBQ plates. It comes with a TON of food at a good deal. We ordered a 1/2 pound of pulled pork and 1/4 pound of trip tip with a side of fries (don't skip the fries they are so good,on my top list of French fries in SB) and the total came to right around $20. It comes with some garlic bread and we brought our own side salad but if you want some vegetables they have a few salads you could choose from. This is always more than enough for 2 people and we had so much meat that we were able to turn it into carnitas/tri tip tacos for leftovers the next night! Definitely recommend shalhoobs patio for dine in or take out! More...

We were looking for a lunch spot near the beach with an open patio after playing in the ocean all day. Finding places that cater to my vegan diet and my partner's omnivore diet can be difficult. I was skeptical of ordering a vegan option at a butcher/BBQ place, but went ahead and ordered the falafel sandwich with no cheese or mayo. Guys it was incredible! So much flavor, the falafel was crispy and delicious. The jalapeño watermelon radish slaw on top was awesome. Highly recommend! And my bf said the tri-tip was really good More...

Made a reservation here on a Sunday just hours before arriving which was already a plus for me that they were able to accommodate my party of 8! We each ordered a different items from their menu and were impressed with just about everything. Given the current covid situation, it was nice that the tables were pretty scattered, and their plates & utensils were all disposable (with the exception of some drinks which required a cup). The staff were all friendly & food all came out at once without having to wait long at all. Will definitely be back if I'm in the area! More...
