Quality latin food for bargain price. Cash only. Good service most of the time but can get crowed sometimes and you have to wait for your food for quite some time after you order. Still it"s worth it since food is good.

We heard from many Athenians that this was their favorite restaurant, so our expectations were high. We arrived hungry after a Georgia home game to the five points location. To their credit, the line moved quickly. After that, it went downhill. You order at the counter, pay (cash only - glad we knew that in advance), and get a number.... More

The food was really excellent, and the atmosphere was fun. You order at the counter and the food is delivered to your table. The special combo was good, and the plantains were especially good.

My son and I went here to eat the evening before a college tour. The food was tasty and plentiful for the prices. I had three chicken tacos which had cabbage and strips of cucumber to really freshen up the dish. My son had a Philly Cheese stye Cuban and he thought it was very good. This is obviously a... More

I loved the food here! Delicious bistec de pollo with rice, beans and plantains .... soul food for this girl from Miami! We enjoyed sitting on the deck on a beautiful, breezy day in Athens and the place was packed! One downside is its appearance.. it has many "rough edges". I would rate it five stars if it were cleaned... More

Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The prices were very reasonable and chicken quesadilla and empanadas were great.

Our group of 15 ranged in age from young teen to mid-50's and we all loved the food! Highly recommend the fish tacos, fish burrito, and the Cuba special. Remember it's BYOB and cash only. Great post-game meeting place!

We stopped in here for a light bite in the middle of a Sunday afternoon. Parking is free, but it is quite limited and the spaces are tight. Enter the restaurant and order at the counter. They will give you a number and the food is delivered to your table. It is open seating after you order. We loved the... More

I love the fish tacos! They come with my favorite red onions and delicious sauce. The Tacu tacu and saltada are amazing too. I've had the veggie burritos and the veggie empanadas and they aren't my favorite. This is definitely not the healthiest food, it's salty and greasy. But it's different and a fun atmosphere, although sometimes it can be... More
