About Us

It's no secret that Santa Barbara County is a very special place. And we believe that the local food and drink scene is a very big part of our city's uniqueness. That's why it is our #1 goal to support the local mom & pop eateries, tasting rooms, farms, and shops of Santa Barbara & Solvang while showing you a super good time in our favorite neighborhoods.

Eat This, Shoot That! is a company that is centered around encouraging local business and treating other business owners like good friends – great friends, actually! When you come on our tours we aren't just introducing you to the local culture and helping you find all the cool hidden eateries and undiscovered gems, we're introducing you to our friends. And we think that's pretty neat.
