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

I can't figure out what the big deal is about this place. The food was average at best. My gusband got a burrito. I got the ceviche. Mu daughter gor the kids hot dog. We were in town for the weekend and a friend said we had to check it out. I was not a fan of a lot of... More

This is our favorite restaurant to go to with small children. Kids can run and around and play, definitely a laid back atmosphere. Food is great and you get a very generous serving for the price. One of Athens' best!

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.

Thank Gabe a
