Restaurant details
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Recently visited and we had a shrimp chimichanga and enchiladas suiza, it is just "average" Mexican "tex/mex" food. Certainly worth the drive if you live in this relatively rural area. It's the closest good Mexican food we've found to Tellico Plains. The food was hot, fresh, tasted good, etc. The only "issue" was the enchiladas suiza had HOT green sauce. My wife expected tomatillo sauce (typical verde sauce) and it was actually green chili sauce. I loved it, but it was too hot for her.. The place is clean and service was great. It's just fairly typical fare, but will certainly suffice, and the prices are VERY reasonable. We will eat there again no doubt.

I've been eating at Castillo's for the past 3 or 4 years and they have never failed to provide hot, fresh, delicious food. Definitely one of my favorite Mexican restaurants...and probably the best one in the Athens/Etowah area. Service is always prompt, and although the exterior of the building may look a bit dated, the inside is always clean and has a nice atmosphere...and of course the food is excellent! Recommend trying the the quesadillas, they're cheesy and delicious! Also be sure to give the grilled chicken or steak a try - very tender.
