Unique experience

This is a one of a kind place. It has a Caribbean island atmosphere. The food is good but they changed their menu in the last year so it's not as good as it was. It's not your typical Latin cuisine which is good. Cash/check only. Service is hit or miss. It's a little pricey for what it is. Go... read more

Lot of outside tables. Nice when the weather is ok. BYOB. Food is ok, average, not terrific. Easy location near Five Points, parking is good. There's a great parrot who lives on the premises.

This is an Athens original! Good Peruvian food in an ultra casual outdoor setting. You counter order but the food is delivered to you. On quirky feature, no Apple pay, Square or credit cards are accepted so stop by the ATM and bring cash. I guarantee you will have a good meal in a fun, family friendly atmosphere at Cali... More

Good food, quick service, but the site on the Eastside is so much better! Bring cash, as they don't accept credit cards. Fun atmosphere - outdoor seating primarily, with lots of places for the kids to run and play.

Interesting place to eat. Eclectic decor and interesting menu. Friendly staff. Mostly self-serve. Definitely not fine dining, but sometimes funk is good. Cuban sandwiches seems to be the favorite. Lots of vegetarian options.

We stopped here while passing through Athens. I found this place on Tripadvisor and I have to say that all of the reviews were right on. When you first walk in, you go to the counter to place your order, then they give you a number tent to put on your table, then the server brings your food. Everything my... More
