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

Had the Cuban. Pork was OK but the rest of it was gross. It wasn't pressed so it was soggy and just not what I was hoping for. The floors were dirty and I won't be back.

Of course it is also the only Cuban restaurant in Athens, but don't let that deter you, it's top notch. It's your basic small town hole in the wall kind of place, but the food really is great. I love theIr Cuban sandwich.

I wasn't aware of this place as I wasn't in Athens often, but someone told me about it and now I try to go about every payday. Everything on the menu is decently priced, the wait staff is always helpful and pleasant. I have yet to have a bad sandwich there, and love the black beans and rice. Also, try... More
