Original location on Prince, or new location on Timothy... doesn't matter. great salsa, great food, great drinks. La Parilla on Gaines School is a close 2nd.

We were staying downtown & had walked to campus and restaurants near the hotel for a couple of days & we were ready for new scenery! Took off for Aqua Linda, about a 10 minute drive. Saw lots of cool, funky restaurants & shopping along the way. There was plenty of parking on the street and in a side lot.... More

This is a restaurant when I walked in I wasn't sure about but it was great! Try the enchiladas with mole sauce. Salsa was good but not spicy enough for me. Food was hot and bean and rice were awesome. Service was fast and wait staff was quick to serve. Try it soon!

As Mexican themed restaurants go.....this one is above par. No waiting and quick service. We got three different dipping sauces for the preliminary chips.

Have been going here every Thursday with a group of friends for about 2 years. They are consistently awesome. Servers are patient, friendly, helpful and quick to serve. The food tastes great. I always take half of it home, the portions are so generous. Estefan is the most welcoming host you could ask for. He treats everyone like they are... More

Just passing through quickly and wanted a quick bite before hitting the road for 5 hours: had a great set of tacos and you get three salsas with your chips. Quick friendly service, comfortable atmosphere.

When looking for a restaurant near Athens Regional Hospital, we decided upon Aqua Linda Mexican Restaurant. We really enjoyed the three kinds of salsas and the side dish of guacamole was so good, I'm now a fan. The chicken fijita quesadilla was the best I've had anywhere. My son and his wife had steak nachos supreme and they loved them... More

Staff are quick and helpful. The smokey salsa is the best in my opinion. Love the shrimp bowl. The flan is also very nice!!
