Excellent little hole in the wall place!

I'd never have just stopped here by looking at the outside, but WOW, it was great! I had fish tacos and they were delicious - I could eat some more right now :) You can eat outside or inside with a breeze - it's practically outside. But lunch today was the perfect weather for this funny little... read more

Kooky place, very "scruffy" & a bit weird. Food is fairly good, but not great. Seating is mostly picnic tables under roof and open to outside. Additional similar seating outside as well. Expect to wait 20-30 minutes in line to order if it's lunch time. Food is served quickly once your order is placed.

Unique restaurant that provides great food. Prices are reasonable. Just be prepared to stand in line to order your food, but it comes out quickly once you order. Enjoy your food in picnic style!

Met up with the family membets We came to visit upon our arrival on Athens and after cruising around downtown and failing to find a parking spot we opted for the original Cali and Titos. It is a fun place. You walk inside and there are kiddie rides by the door. We saw lots of familis with small kids and... More

Cali and Tito's Mexican restaurant in Athens, GA is a fun and unique place to go. It is very rustic with most of the seating at picnic tables outside either under a large porch or out in the yard. The entire place is decorated with a combination of Mexican paraphnalia and junk like potbelly stoves, old boats, and tires. There... More

Good food, Great location for walking. Being close to the university and five points makes it a challenge for parking. One thing I don't like is the allowance of animals into the eating area. Not an animal fan when it comes to my food but, that is easily solved with take out.

Great Cuban food. Atmosphere is rustic and makes you feel like you in a little dive in another country!

Very authentic restaurant, not your average franchised abomination! This place has loads of character and authenticity. From the moment you see the building with the two palm trees in front, to waiting in line (which can get quite lengthy!), to placing your order at the counter (no waiter service) to enjoying the tables outside, this place is a must visit...

I've been here several times and the service is always fast and the food delicious. Even when they are packed.
