I have seen two branches and have tried one, it has a big space with lots of things for kids to play. And it's designed like havinb a cubian... More

One of the best restaurants in Athens! The is food is excellent in flavor, size, and price. For Brazilians with homesickness, I recommend the empanadas and the yuca frita (they're just like pastel and mandioca) with a passion fruit juice! Their quesadillas are worthy the try too!

Not impressive from the outside and looks old. Parking is limited. You order and pay in cash then get a number to go sit down at any open table or bench. Cashier very friendly. A runner will being your order. Menu has lots of varieties from appetizer to entree to specialties. Empanadas is fresh and well made. Fish taco both... More

This place is amazingly good. I usually get the chicken tacos and have never been disappointed. Parking is a bit of a pain, but it is worth it. Also, they only take cash or checks, no debit, so, be prepared.

Cali N Tito's has two locations, one adjacent to the Univ. of Georgia campus, and a larger one on the east side of Athens. Both are great--the campus location is smaller, the seating is mostly outdoors--covered, but outside--while the east side restaurant is much larger, probably around 30 (inside) tables. Cali N Tito's is a great place to go out... More

Super casual outdoor dining atmosphere mixed with generously portioned delicious food makes this a can't miss Athens local staple. Everything that I have sampled here has been really well-prepared - including the fish tacos or burrito, ceviche, maduros, and the cubano sandwiches. I have to admit, though, I do wish that they accepted credit cards.

Last night my wife and I walked across UGA campus to dine at Cal N Tito's on my wife's recommendation. We just beat the storm. I had the Cuban with steak and my wife had the Tacos Dorado. They were excellent. I was amazed that even with the storm, a line to order formed at this place. That's devotion! Worth... More
