So the line took awhile for a Sunday lunch, but the wait for our food to come out was not too long. We both got the fish burrito - which was phenomenal. The chipotle sauce was the right amount of spicy. I would definitely recommend to others for a casual meal. However, their health eating at 80 was a scary... More

After golf and heading to the tour championship in Atlanta we spent the night in Athens and decided on Cali N Tito which turns out to be a good choice. No alcohol so BYOB and it's cash only which should be no problem, meals are very reasonable. Come bring the family, the family dog and have some fun.

This place is incredibly charming and laid back. It was a perfect location to take my son and his group of friends. They are all UGA students, so Mexican is a easy favorite! The menu is extensive and includes lots of vegetarian options. I was able to take out the whole gang with ease and success! This place is self... More

Nothing special, just grilled veggies and bread, but not a bad price, and really cool atmosphere! Service with a smile, but again not impressed with vegetarian options. I'll try again and review again, but nut now.

A gem to have a Cuban food place like this in Athens for so many years. The spirit of the owner Rubio, shows in their employees - you know they are well treated and they are happy to serve you. Fish Tacos are the best. As far as I know, everything is good and at a bloody good value. One... More

Several of our friends like Cali N Tito's, so we thought we'd give it a try. BIG mistake! The food was okay -- just okay, not great -- but the atmosphere was almost unbearable! Loud, frantic, children riding tricycles among the tables, constant beeping and flashing lights of rides/games . . . I thought I'd been transported back in time... More

Went here on a recommendation by a family member and was kinda disappointed. It was hard to locate and the whole setup is just different from what I normally expect from a Mexican restaurant. La Parilla is right down the road and a million times better.
