Went there with a bunch of friends on Friday night they were moderately busy and I would say that the food was average-at-best and the service was average at best you pay at the counter and seat yourself and the food's brought to you very nice atmosphere though!!!

I really enjoy eating at cali n titos. I love the chicken milanesa and their tostones and yuca with pink sauce are amazing. You have to get water out of basically a sink which I don't love and it is bring your own beer which isn't my favorite. They are quick and i love getting them from bulldawg delivery when... More

If you are a college student on a budget it might be appealing, but there is zero atmosphere, water out a faucet in plastic cups, order was long in coming and my meal was missing. I had to wait another 1/2 hour for mine to arrive. I ordered tamales and there were very bland!!

We are trying different places in Athens while our son is in college there. Today we chose this restaurant. It's not in downtown nor on the main drag. The parking lot entrance is a little hard to identify when driving in a lot of traffic. The food is definitely good though. Seems pretty authentic with lots of 'panini' or other... More

Usually very full because of really good food for college students and parents who want that college experience. Prices are reasonable, solid menu in a picnic table and incredibly quirky decor. A must Go To while in Athens.

Food was ok. They do not accept credit cards, only cash & check which is a bit inconvenient this day & time. Drinks are in cans, no refills

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.
