One of a kind in Athens!

The reviews are correct! Don't judge Cali n Tito's by its looks, go in and see for yourself. We love to find places like this. They have indoor and outdoor seating. Cash only!

We were in the Athens, GA area and wanted to try this... best decision. This is the best sandwich I've ever had. I would definitely recommend and make sure you bring cash... they are the few that don't take plastic.

I love, love, love the Fish Burrito. I get it without red onions because to me they tend to overwhelm the entree. I also love the Peruvian ceviche and the Lomo Saltado. I am partial to the original location on Lumpkin Street but the new place is excellent on the East Side.

Not bad but too pricy for the kind of food and quality you are getting from the kitchen. Plus they only take cash and there are no waitress service at all.

We had heard of this place before visiting Athens so we were sure not to miss it. The menu choices are interesting and simply ordering 3 types of tacos was not disappointing. The best in my opinion was the chorizo taco. My husband ordered the chicken fajitas and although he typically is not keen on Mexican food he was very... More

We were at the UGA Small Animal Clinic with a sick pet and needed a place close by to eat lunch. We went to Ali-N-Tito's and had a good, fast meal. I had the fish tacos which were outstanding. My husband had a Cuban sandwich that he enjoyed. As sides we chose Green Plantains and Yucas Fritas. Both were new... More

Left too early for work, decided to drop by Cali n' Tito's and ordered the cuban sandwich meal that includes soda and a side ( i chose the yummy french fries). It's as yummy as the first time i had it and for the price of $8.95+ tax, it's worth every penny. The only reason i didn't give a full... More

I went with my father before Uga beat up on Vanderbilt in basketball. Not crazy busy at it usually is, but it was a Tuesday....Had tacos dorados, they are essentially churros, also an epenada. Everything was great and the staff was friendly. Only bad thing is this is a CASH ONLY establishment...though you don't need much of that to fill... More

We have ate here on several occasions & the chicken tacos are to die for!! My husband likes the Cuban sandwich.. After spending time in Central America, it makes me feel transported back to all those delicious little restaurants there..I tell anyone going to Athens ( we live 45min away ) to try it out! You won't be disappointed!!
