I got takeout food, which ranged from tasteless masses of starch to sauce that was very, very spicy. My wife wanted some of the vegetarian food. That was really bad as it was gobs of tasteless starch. Her tamale was made with very thick, heavy...More

Tacos are the best! If you want fancy dining this is not your place. Laid back and always friendly. Bring cash,no card accepted.

There are two locations in Athens, and they couldn't be more different, so definitely try both! Some of my favorite items from the menu include the strawberry-mango margarita, chicken quesadilla, fish tacos, fish burrito, and, believe it or not, this place has the best french...More
