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

The evening that we went to Cali N Tito's, it was an unusually cool March evening. Since the dining area of the restaurant is (basically) outside, it was extremely cold in the area where the picnic tables are set up for dining. After we had placed our orders and we had been there for a considerable period of time, they... More

Walking in you are immediately drawn to the openness of the building with an open air wrap around porch and eclectic decor. Do not let the line bother you- it is a CASH ONLY establishment and it takes people a bit longer (plus now-a-days everyone pays separately) to go through the line but in the end it is all worth...

Since the 2nd Cali N Tito's opened...that is our go-to place for good food and cool, eclectic ambiance....this one is on the east side across the street from Cedar Shoals High School. Whenever we have out-of-town guests, this is where we take them. It is such a fun place for kids....plenty of things to climb on, tricycles to ride, a... More

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 fries I've ever eaten in my life!

Enjoyed a fish burrito and a Cuban sandwich. The food is very good. Prices are also good! Fresh ingredients. The portions also good. Great value for your money. The place makes you feel like you're on the islands. I'll definitely visit again when in Athens!

Great, fun atmosphere! I have never gotten anything here that was disappointing! The Cuban sandwiches are good! The fish tacos are good! Tito's Big Burrito is good! If you love appetizers, get the tostones! The yuca Frita are also a good choice! If you want something sweeter, get the Maduros! Cash only, so make sure you come prepared!

Been here three times and am still baffled why people like it, other than it is cheap. Food is ok, service is slow, parking isn't always easy. And, they only take cash.

Fun place, outdoor seating. I typically get the open tacos. They are not particularly fancy or gourmet, but they are tasty. Usually quite crowded.

We were recommended to try here about 7 years ago, delicious! We have returned multiple times when visiting Athens and have enjoyed every time. You need to have 💵cash💵 with you as that it the only method of payment. The food is Cuban and very tasty...great food!!!
