Awesome waitress helps couple from China...

Visited Cali N Titos for lunch on Saturday, 2/13. They were very busy with a long line of patrons. In front of me was a couple visiting from China who spoke virtually no English. The young lady taking their order was very patient with them as they tried to order their food. Eventually the order... read more

My family and I have eaten at Cali N Tito's many times and have always enjoyed the experience. Their food is good and very reasonably priced. The staff are friendly and helpful. The decorations are unique, to say the least, and there is a playground for kids. Sometimes the music is too loud to allow conversations, but most of the... More

We love this place!!despite the quarter rides (old fashioned kids moving ride on toys) not always working and the now absence of the awesome trikes that kids love, this is still the most unique place to eat in Athens! The food is awesome and always fresh and the space is huge and inviting. We go here pretty often because our... More

Great ambiance. Outstanding food. Lot of fun. The best Latin food, Colombian/Peruvian/Cuban fusion. And the shakes are great.

The food is great the people are great and kind and it's really affordable! I go there on a regular basis at least twice a month and i could not be happier with it:) Just the only point is they accept cash or cheque no cards:)

You can get away from it all by having lunch at Cali N Tito's. Whether you're meeting friends or trying to convince a desirable academic recruit that Athens is as cool as people say, this place will lift your mood and satisfy your hunger. Burritos and Cuban sandwiches are both excellent, especially with the fried tostones (green plantains) and the... More

We heard about this place and upon arriving was surprised by its simple dining and friendly staff. Recommend to go light on cilantro and bring cash or check do no take cards.

Very good Latin food at an incredible price. BYOB if you want that. The fish tacos are outstanding. Mostly outdoor seating, so it's better in nice weather.

This is a unique place both for its decor and its food. The decor is eclectic, funky, and really attractive. The food is authentic, good, and inexpensive. The best thing on the menu, I think, are the tamales. Years ago, when Cali & Tito's were at their previous location on Tallassee Road, we asked about their tamales, which are cooked... More

This is my absolute favorite restaurant in Athens. Everything is delicious but the fish burritos and the steak cubanos are AMAZING. Can't beat the atmosphere either. I come here for birthdays, reunions, even my bachelorette party. Get some tostones too.
