Best Mexican in Athens

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... read 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!

Went here with another couple for dinner. Two had combination plates and the other two had Chimichangas. My personal favorite was the chicken chimichanga. I also tried the pork taco and the beef enchilada. Several shared a pitcher of margaritas. It was very large and they could not finish it. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

When we are in Athens we usually eat downtown. Parking is a pain and not worth wasting time to find a place to park. So we decided to look else where. This was our first time to eat here. We decided to sit outside. You can also bring your pooch on the porch if you want too. They are pet... More

Good thing we were not in a hurry, as the service was slow as molasses. It's one thing to wait for food, but the server barely checked on us during our close-to-an-hour wait for food on a Thursday night. The place was packed...good for them, but hire more servers!

This was my second visit to Aqua Linda and I was pleased again. The service is efficient warm and friendly and the food is great. Portions are generous and the margaritas very good. A good value for the money and worth going back to.

We went on a Sunday and had a beer/bloody mary special; interesting combo. The portions were generous; I had a veggie burrito that was huge and I could only eat half - usually I belong to the "clean plate club". Might have been the constantly-restocked chips and and 3 different types of salsa that I took full advantage of.

This restaurant is not good.The service was ok but the waitress did spill all over the table when pouring tea but people make mistakes.Anytime I asked her questions she would just shrug and say "I don't know". The food however was no good at all. It tasted spoiled and was low quality.I took a bite and it was so disgusting... More

The Prince Ave. location does not look like much, but the food is the best. The fish tacos are amazing, simple and perfect. I have never had a bad meal here.
