Cali n' Titos is one of the places I always make a point of taking people to when they visit me in Athens. Both lunch and dinner menus are excellent, authentic and inexpensive. The atmosphere is fun with plenty of outdoor seating. My personal favorite is the steak tacos with tostones, but I haven't had anything bad off the menu... More

Honestly I can say that my meal was great albeit very basic. My friends love the food here so we had to stop by before they left town. It's a good spot to have a late lunch at

Really good food. It is sort of awkward getting oriented to how the place is laid out. But good food.

The new Athens eastside Cali N Tito's is like walking into a restaurant at Epcot! The menu is genuine, great Latin American food and drink. It's a great place for kids with lots of classic kids rides and entertainment. Great for family dinner or a business lunch.

I have eaten here several times and it's always fresh and tasty. The cheese dip is the best I have EVER (EVER EVER EVER!!) had, and I think I've had it from most places from FL to TN! Their empanadas are just ok; they meat needs more flavor. Got the ground beef ones and it was basically meat and onions;... More

A scrumptous treat for the whole family, Cali N Tito's has something to please every palate. If the weather permits, the children can play while the adults finish their food. That's a plus any time. Try the veggie cubano and don't forget the friolis.

My kids and I love this restaurant. The food selection is great and tastes delicious. The beers are cold and the margaritas are tasty. I especially love sitting out on the patio and enjoying the atmosphere.

This is a good place to if you like to mix Mexican and Cuban food. The chicken quesadilla was good and the rest of our party enjoyed their dishes. You order at the counter and they only take cash or check. The line on Saturday was out the door. So be prepared and order at least 2 drinks of soda... More

There is so much to pick from that is wise to grab the menu by the door. They don't have servers coming to the table, so you have to wait in line to place your order. They are great about taking the orders very fast and the whole process is well accompanied with eclectic decor and music. Plenty of outside... More
