My family and I stop here every time we visit UGA. The food is well prepared and tastes great! We enjoy it so much that we consider going twice during our weekend visits. Very casual and cost effective! Pet friendly if you sit outside

I write terrible only because it is cash only and for most people we carry credit cards. Was disappointed I was not able to taste the good food that was on the menu. So I say disappointed and not terrible. Question? Who doesn't take credit cards this days? This restaurant

We ate here three times in one week. It is so laid back. It may be for college kids but it is great for families as well. My 5 year old grandson can be challenging at times. He loved the food, loved the play space and i loved having s decent meal, reasonable price, and not having to entertain him.... More

Looking for a place to eat after visiting the Terrapin Brewery, we let Trip Advisor guide us. We wound up here. We had the is chips and salsa and fried plantains - excellent for our appetizer. Our main courses varied from fish tacos to tamales. All enjoyed their choices. Be aware though they do not take credit cards.

Food was incredible, we are big fans of the Cuban sandwich and this was like no other! The sauce is delicious! The staff were also very nice and food was fast!

We ordered a variety of dishes including beef empanadas, pork Cuban, tacu tacu and another rice dish. Everything was very tasty. Don't let the decor turn you away if you were expecting a traditional sit down eatery.

Overall, this is an experience. If you mind sticky tabletops, buzzing flies or dining in very loud places keep on driving. Current pop music can be heard well down the block and old black and white Mexican movies compete for attention on the flat screens. Add in red and green Christmas lights and palm trees; this is place is one... More

Dinner here tonight and we are still raving about the food. We started out with pico and chips, and they were fresh and filled with avocado...really good. I ordered a tamal and fish taco and my hubby got a Cuban steak sandwich. We then shared everything, because it was all so good. The tamal was filled with pork and wrapped... More
