Looks colorful with splash of poverty thrown in from the street. But don't let it's ghetto bohemian college trendy look scare you away. Decor emphasizes thrifty with coffee can pendulum lights and ceiling draped burlap bags. Some of the food is awesome and well worth a look. The line out the door... read more

a true college hangout. Great value. But, no beer or wine. They are within 1000 feet of a school. You can BYOB a according to the young lady at the counter. Great prices and generous portions. Very basic surroundings.

I took my son here for his 18th birthday. The food was great and reasonably priced. I enjoyed the wall art and my toddler loved the trikes that were there in the middle of the floor. Nice place!

I'd never have just stopped here by looking at the outside, but WOW, it was great! I had fish tacos and they were delicious - I could eat some more right now :) You can eat outside or inside with a breeze - it's practically outside. But lunch today was the perfect weather for this funny little place. I'm already... More

Kooky place, very "scruffy" & a bit weird. Food is fairly good, but not great. Seating is mostly picnic tables under roof and open to outside. Additional similar seating outside as well. Expect to wait 20-30 minutes in line to order if it's lunch time. Food is served quickly once your order is placed.

Unique restaurant that provides great food. Prices are reasonable. Just be prepared to stand in line to order your food, but it comes out quickly once you order. Enjoy your food in picnic style!

It is a fun place. You walk inside and there are kiddie rides by the door. We saw lots of familis with small kids and... More

Cali and Tito's Mexican restaurant in Athens, GA is a fun and unique place to go. It is very rustic with most of the seating at picnic tables outside either under a large porch or out in the yard. The entire place is decorated with a combination of Mexican paraphnalia and junk like potbelly stoves, old boats, and tires. There... More

Good food, Great location for walking. Being close to the university and five points makes it a challenge for parking. One thing I don't like is the allowance of animals into the eating area. Not an animal fan when it comes to my food but, that is easily solved with take out.
