We were in Athens visiting family. I relied on Tripadvisor an as always it came threw. Nice authentic Mexican restaurant. Three salsas served with corn chips and they were all excellent. Choices for main courses were original not the same you usually find in most Mexican restaurants and they were excellent. Service was great also. This is a must stop... More

My husband and I visit Aqua Linda Timothy Road regularly for the outstanding service, food, Texas margaritas and Terrapin microbrew! We always request Victor as our waiter. He is hands down the best waiter in Athens. You are treated as if you were in the most expensive restaurant in the country. Always professional, helpful, and courteous. We have had Mexican... More

Their food is always outstanding and the service is fast. When I eat Mexican style food I usually have a margarita. This place always does them right. I've yet to be as satisfied with any other similar style restaurant.

This place is my favorite Mexican restaurant ever. I love the 3 fresh salsas they offer plus the cheese dip. All of their meats are seasoned and flavored perfectly. Not once I have ever been disappointed and we go once a week.

Easy to find, quick service, good food, good value. Complete Mexican meal fun. Would be good for family, friends, business or solo. Not so much for romantic.

A no frills delicious little spot! Don't miss the cheese dip with roasted poblano peppers. The steak quesadilla is marinated to perfection. Love me some Aqua Linda.

The salsas were all great, the service was efficient, the drinks good and a party of nine was easily accommodated. Everyone enjoyed their meal and given the number were a variety of dishes on the table. A good value is a nice bonus!

We found this spot through an online search and it had great reviews -- very worthy of these. 3 wonderful house salsas to start all off with (tomato, roasted tomato and an amazing avacado/tomatillo). I had a combination plate -- steak burrito (tender, delicious steak) and carnitas gringo taco) -- both YUM. And of course, a pitcher of the house... More

Passing through Athens and were in the mood for Mexican. This was a good choice. Fajitas were delicious and was the California burrito. We also really enjoyed the salsa options they give you with the chips when seated.

Salsa is great, cheese dip is great, and the amount of food you get for the price is fantastic. It was very good! Worth a stop! Our waitress was new, but she did a wonderful job!
