As a native New Yorker there are countless food establishments that say stay away but once you taste the food you are like "I'll be back" Terminator style. The food was off the hook. My husband and I shared the steak big dish and the burrito. I was leery of the fried eggs with the steak but the combo was... More

What a great place. It's unpretentious, food is really good and today, I felt like I was actually doing it Caribbe-style. There are palm trees, outdoor picnic tables, a parrot and excellent food. Everyone there was happy.The Cuban my guest had was enough for two people and he said "absolutely the bestt". My fish tacos were nicely prepared with plenty... More

We've eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The food is fresh and tasty and the atmosphere fun and relaxing. Come early if you are in a hurry otherwise strike up a conversation while you wait in line to order.

Cali N Tito's is a fun, primarily outdoor restaurant in Athens. I has the atmosphere you would expect in a college town. The food is great, especially the Cuban dishes and it is a great value for the money. Everything I have had there is obviously freshly made - the chips and salsa came with fresh made salsa with chunks... More

I love this place! The food is amazing and the atmosphere is incredible too! I recommend the chicken cuban, chicken empanadas, chips and salsa! YUMMY! Don't forget to bring cash with you, they do not accept cards. Also it is BYOB, so you can bring your favorite beverage and save some money too!

You have to have cash to eat here. It is in an open type area. The place felt very dirty. My granddaughter ordered chicken strips and I tasted one and was awful!! You had to pay for the chips and salsa separate from the meal. They weren't even that good!

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.
