This place serves up Latin food that is the real deal. A must try while you are in Athens. I highly recommend the Arroz and fish tacos. You can also take in your own beer to drink with your meal.

This place was fantastic. Atmasphere was a little busy, the food was spot on. The wings are fantastic and so is the quesadilla.

This wonderful slice of Latin America is close to UGA which helps explain its popularity. So the GREAT food. There many regional specialities, including Cuba. In fact the Cuban Sandwich is the best I have had of its namesake. It's hard to get excited about...More

Yes! Several times we've decided to eat at home and called in our order. Everything was prepared as requested. Just remember that this is a CASH ONLY establishment. Well worth the trip to an ATM if needed.
