Being a computer software developer by trade, John Dickson launched SantaBarbara.com in early 1996. The first web site dedicated to promoting Santa Barbara tourism, it contained dozens of local guides including the Lodging Guide, Beaches Guide, Parks Guide, Wedding Guide and, just by chance, a Restaurant Guide. While working on the dining guide for more than a decade he gained a lot of inside knowledge of what was happening in the local restaurant scene. So today, who would know better about the taste of our town than the Restaurant Guy?
