Some of Athen's finest food. I had the Chicken Chimmi and my wife and son both ate the Cuban pork roast. Great service from our waiter. Friendly owner. Kind of has an eclectic diner feel. Try it.

Food was good and the LIVE entertainment was a pleasant surprise. Inexpensive food, not as "cuban" as I would have expected from the name and online menu, but a good local sandwich shop. The cuban sliders were good, but I felt like I had eaten a very americanized version. This place made me think it is to cuban what TX-Mex... More

Not as much Cuban food as you might like, but the Cuban sandwich with black beans and rice is very good. Though I've not experienced it personally, they also have live music some nights. The atmosphere is ok but not great. The prices are pretty good, thought.

We stopped here while traveling home from South Carolina and what a great surprise!! The Cuban sandwich was wonderful, tasty and the bread had a nice crunch. The black beans and rice were so good. The staff was friendly. We had the tres leche for dessert and it was delicious. Too bad this place is so far from home. The... More

After checking in to our hotel in Athens, I searched online for restaurant options and found Angela's. It sounded intriguing. My brother and I were both glad we went there, rather than to a chain restaurant or diner. What good food! Our server was delightful and informative. I especially loved the plantains.

Angela's is my favorite place to eat and hang out in Athens. You must try the fish tacos, Greek chicken and cafe con leche. You will love the food and the feel very welcome.

I order take-out quite a bit from this restaurant, and normally order two Cuban Sandwiches for the two of us. They are tremendous! The sandwich is fairly large, so last time I ordered just the one for the two of us which was plenty. The staff are always friendly.

I grew up in Florida. And I love Cuban food. But since living in Tennessee it's been hard to find any decent Cuban food. This place changes all of that! My husband and I had to go to Athens to run some errands and I popped onto TripAdvisor to try to find some new restaurants instead of the chains so... More
