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!!!

I indicate disappointing not because of the food, which is consistently good,but because the last few times we've been there over the last few months, they have been carrying a "B" Health Dept. rating. This makes me leery of the place especially when i see on the grad sheet poor food maintenance i.e., not keeping food hot enough or cold... More

The food is always good and fresh. Sometime there may be a wait, but the food is worth the wait. You pay for what get, the prices are good but not cheap.

Best fish tacos ever! The smoothies, and everything else on the menu, are also excellent. One of my favorite places in town.

This restaurant is different to say the least, many coin operated children rides, children riding tricycles through the dining area, seating is on picnic tables. Atmosphere is loud and confusing, one must go to the bar to order. Certainly not the place for an romantic meal. The food is ok, I believe it is Peruvian. It appears to be fresh... More
