Why aren't there protests denouncing cops who abuse whites?

Why do only "black lives matter?"

Nobody wants to state the obvious, but if blacks behaved more like Asians and started studying all night and working twice as hard as everybody else, other folk's perception of them would change.

Supposedly blacks make up 10% of the US population but commit 50% of the crimes. Police see this first hand every day on the job, so it's not surprising that some jump to unwarranted conclusions from time to time.

The dollar menu at McDonald's is by far the best deal in town.

Lilly's is decent, but you need to spend $10 on lunch to get full.

The other two taco shops aren't as good as Lilly's and priced in the same ballpark.

Melichori was local. Chapala One sure worked out well. Not.

Wrong. I've even eaten Dim Sum in Hong Kong too and surprisingly it wasn't that much better than China Pavilion's. Certain items are especially good at particular places, but overall CP's Dim Sum is very good.

After more thought, I can sort of understand why Rusty's was voted top pizza in town. Everything else is so mediocre, and with Rusty's you at least know what you're getting every time. I've heard Flatbread in Los Alamos is worth the long drive.

Hopefully, Patxi's, coming soon to Lower State Street will shake things up. They're highly rated on Yelp in many of their other locations.

For a small town, the Chinese food isn't too bad in SB.

I would have to agree that China Pavilion is the best local Chinese restaurant with Madam Lu's on State Street coming in second. Mandarine Palace is probably third.

Dim Sum at China Pavilion is pretty darn close to what you get at the places in NYC's Chinatown. Otherwise, order the Kung Pao Chicken and Dry Sauteed String Beans, and you'll leave happy.

Ca'dario is much better that Olio E Limone.

Olio E Limone is ok. Their pizza's aren't bad, but I prefer Ca'dario's pastas. Their authentic Italian breakfasts are hands down the best in town too.

Santa Barbara doesn't have great pizza, but Rusty's doesn't even make the top five.

Mony's on East Anacapa has the best burritos in SB with no close second. Super Cucas is nothing special. Unfortunately, the uneducated masses are wrong again.
