Simple place with decent food at a decent price. There is plenty of space for small children and a caged macaw, which might entertain your kids while you enjoy eating your food, which is of an interesting variety. I particularly enjoyed the fried yucca (very well done). A couple of warnings: 1- Bring cash, because they don't take credit/debit cards;... More

I took my 10 year old daughter last night after strolling around Athens. We thought it was a Mexican restaurant, but it was a little different (maybe more of a Brazilian type menu, not sure?). Fun place to sit and eat, a play area for kids, and a beautiful Parrot in a cage to look at. We did not spend... More

One of the best meals I've had in Athens. One sandwich was enough for two people. We went on a Saturday for lunch. Get there early if you wanna go on a Friday or Saturday night.

Just solid very tasty food for a fair price. The atmosphere is eclectic. This is a place to take the kids, eat alone, take a special guest.... This is the place I take out of town guests to give them a taste of Athens.

As a native New Yorker there are countless food establishments that say stay away but once you taste the food you are like "I'll be back" Terminator style. The food was off the hook. My husband and I shared the steak big dish and the burrito. I was leery of the fried eggs with the steak but the combo was... More

What a great place. It's unpretentious, food is really good and today, I felt like I was actually doing it Caribbe-style. There are palm trees, outdoor picnic tables, a parrot and excellent food. Everyone there was happy.The Cuban my guest had was enough for two people and he said "absolutely the bestt". My fish tacos were nicely prepared with plenty... More

We've eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The food is fresh and tasty and the atmosphere fun and relaxing. Come early if you are in a hurry otherwise strike up a conversation while you wait in line to order.

Cali N Tito's is a fun, primarily outdoor restaurant in Athens. I has the atmosphere you would expect in a college town. The food is great, especially the Cuban dishes and it is a great value for the money. Everything I have had there is obviously freshly made - the chips and salsa came with fresh made salsa with chunks... More

I love this place! The food is amazing and the atmosphere is incredible too! I recommend the chicken cuban, chicken empanadas, chips and salsa! YUMMY! Don't forget to bring cash with you, they do not accept cards. Also it is BYOB, so you can bring your favorite beverage and save some money too!
