5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2010

Excellent way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Food is wonderful and atomsphere is relaxing. Bring your own beer and don't miss the fish burito and plantains.

“Junkyard atmosphere + BYOB fee rip-off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2009

The atmosphere at this place resembles a junkyard. Dirty, it is a wonder that it can pass a health inspection. It is certainly an eyesore to the community. To top it off, they have a BYOB policy where they charge you to bring your own beer - seemingly skirting the law. Fairly noisy, also, with music from loud speakers that runs 24-7, even when the joint is closed. Not recommended.

“A Different Opinion”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2009

I attempted to patronize Cali N Tito's for dinner after reading that it was the number 1 restaurant in Athens. Here's the real deal:
1. Parking is limited.
2. The restaurant is mostly dirty old tables and junk furniture sitting in sand/pebbles. In the summer time, it is very hot!
3. It is BYOB for a fee, so instead of customers sipping a glass of wine or beer, they were guzzling bottles and 6 packs. Many of them were visibly drunk.
4. It's crowded, seat yourself style, so you may end up sitting at a long dirty table with drunk strangers.
5. It's CASH ONLY. I waited outside for nearly half an hour in the heat, only to step in the door and see the sign. By the time I walked next door to the BP station to use the ATM and walked back, the line was even longer. At this point, I decided that it wasn't worth it and left.
