I loved the food here! Delicious bistec de pollo with rice, beans and plantains .... soul food for this girl from Miami! We enjoyed sitting on the deck on a beautiful, breezy day in Athens and the place was packed! One downside is its appearance.....More

Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The prices were very reasonable and chicken quesadilla and empanadas were great.

Our group of 15 ranged in age from young teen to mid-50's and we all loved the food! Highly recommend the fish tacos, fish burrito, and the Cuba special. Remember it's BYOB and cash only. Great post-game meeting place!

This is our favorite restaurant to go to with small children. Kids can run and around and play, definitely a laid back atmosphere. Food is great and you get a very generous serving for the price. One of Athens' best!

After golf and heading to the tour championship in Atlanta we spent the night in Athens and decided on Cali N Tito which turns out to be a good choice. No alcohol so BYOB and it's cash only which should be no problem, meals are...More

This place is incredibly charming and laid back. It was a perfect location to take my son and his group of friends. They are all UGA students, so Mexican is a easy favorite! The menu is extensive and includes lots of vegetarian options. I was...More
