This is a restaurant when I walked in I wasn't sure about but it was great! Try the enchiladas with mole sauce. Salsa was good but not spicy enough for me. Food was hot and bean and rice were awesome. Service was fast and wait staff was quick to serve. Try it soon!

Me and my fiance went to celebrate the holidays and it could not have been better. You must try the chunky guacamole its DELICIOUS!!! I wont even mention that the margaritas are some of the best I've ever tasted and the food is well worth it as well!! Sit and the bar and ask for ESTEBAN!!

As Mexican themed restaurants go.....this one is above par. No waiting and quick service. We got three different dipping sauces for the preliminary chips.

Have been going here every Thursday with a group of friends for about 2 years. They are consistently awesome. Servers are patient, friendly, helpful and quick to serve. The food tastes great. I always take half of it home, the portions are so generous. Estefan is the most welcoming host you could ask for. He treats everyone like they are... More

Just passing through quickly and wanted a quick bite before hitting the road for 5 hours: had a great set of tacos and you get three salsas with your chips. Quick friendly service, comfortable atmosphere.

When looking for a restaurant near Athens Regional Hospital, we decided upon Aqua Linda Mexican Restaurant. We really enjoyed the three kinds of salsas and the side dish of guacamole was so good, I'm now a fan. The chicken fijita quesadilla was the best I've had anywhere. My son and his wife had steak nachos supreme and they loved them... More

Staff are quick and helpful. The smokey salsa is the best in my opinion. Love the shrimp bowl. The flan is also very nice!!

Let me just start by saying that this restaurant is amazing. I generally go here at least once every couple weeks for lunch or dinner. My favorite item is their chicken chimichangas, which are huge and stuffed full of chicken, cheese, refried beans, and covered in queso and salsa. Additionally, if chimichangas are not your thing, both their enchiladas and... More

we were told this was a "real" Mexican restaurant. They were wrong. it is your average tex-mex fair. The service was a 10 and the food was a 5. It is a good place to go for a quick lunch if you are looking for tex-mex. Will we be back? maybe.

If you say I'm hungry, shall we eat Mexican? The next thing you should say is Aqua Linda. Quickest place to have chips and three salsa choices placed on your table. Followed by of course quality food by a sharp staff!
