Fish tacos and sweet plantains are awesome. Very casual atmosphere. After ordering at the counter the service was quick and food seemed fresh. Enjoyed sitting outside.

Quirky place for lunch, with a diverse crowd of people and differently prepared food options, friendly staff, bilingual, freshly made food and good prices. Spice was a little too hot and the queso was a little too liquid, not what I expected. Yes, I understand the place is different, but needs some upkeep, cleaning and painting. Cash only place, there... More

We've been here twice and enjoyed it each time. Good fish tacos, fun surroundings. Casual. Cash only.

We went there with our cousins, who have two small children. The children loved it, and I could see why - there were tons of things for the kids to do, and there were people dressed as characters (Elmo, etc). The food was very, very good, and the prices are great, but the place is very noisy.

After reading the reviews, I was very excited to try this restaurant with my family. We tried several dishes. Chicken empanada score to 5 out of 5. The Cubano sandwich score to 4. The fish tacos scored a 3 for me and a 4 from my daughter. The good- the portions are generous, the presentation fun and food looked beautiful.... More

Went there with a bunch of friends on Friday night they were moderately busy and I would say that the food was average-at-best and the service was average at best you pay at the counter and seat yourself and the food's brought to you very nice atmosphere though!!!

I really enjoy eating at cali n titos. I love the chicken milanesa and their tostones and yuca with pink sauce are amazing. You have to get water out of basically a sink which I don't love and it is bring your own beer which isn't my favorite. They are quick and i love getting them from bulldawg delivery when... More

If you are a college student on a budget it might be appealing, but there is zero atmosphere, water out a faucet in plastic cups, order was long in coming and my meal was missing. I had to wait another 1/2 hour for mine to arrive. I ordered tamales and there were very bland!!

We are trying different places in Athens while our son is in college there. Today we chose this restaurant. It's not in downtown nor on the main drag. The parking lot entrance is a little hard to identify when driving in a lot of traffic. The food is definitely good though. Seems pretty authentic with lots of 'panini' or other... More
