Always crowded, but worth the wait! Outside has play area for the kids too! Cubanos, quesadillas, empanadas, hot wings and more. My fav is the guava and cream cheese empanadas...amazing:) cash or check only, no cards. Prices are more than reasonable for such a great meal.

I had heard great thing about this restaurant and it did not disappoint! The chips and salsa are delightful, and the grilled flank steak (cannot remember the name of the dish) is a huge meal that could easily be shared by two people. The fried sweet plantains are yummy, too! I really enjoyed eating here and will go back for... More

If you are looking for a restaurant that screams Athens, then this is it! The quesadillas are excellent, but I've never had a bad meal here. It is cash or check only, which is very unusual in Athens. It can get crowded around lunch time, but it is worth the wait. Sit outside and enjoy the ambiance of the kooky... More

In town for a nursing conference...stopped in around 4:30 on a weekday...no waiting in line. Ordered fish taco with grilled fish with a side order of rice and beans. It was awesome! Will return when I'm in town again. June M.

Cali N Tito's is one of the restaurants you must visit while in Athens. The food is absolutely delicious, but be sure to bring cash b/c they don't accept credit cards.

The food is delicious, especially the tacos. Only downside is that you need cash. Very busy for lunch. Go early.

AWESOME food and a very relaxed atmosphere. Looks like like a shack but we had some of the BEST authentic Latin food since I moved to Athens, GA from South Florida. A few remnders: bring cash, they do not accept cedit cards. It's worth it. Wear shorts in the summer. Enjoy!

First, they only accept cash or check. The convenience store right next door has an ATM. The atmosphere is very casual. Nice outdoor area. Service was fast, food was good.

Wonderful food and great outdoor seating. Very good empanadas. Loved the burrito and tacos as well. Make sure to blob as they don't sell alcohol.
