No wait..hot food!

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!

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
