I love the fish tacos! They come with my favorite red onions and delicious sauce. The Tacu tacu and saltada are amazing too. I've had the veggie burritos and the veggie empanadas and they aren't my favorite. This is definitely not the healthiest food, it's...More

This is our favorite restaurant to go to with small children. Kids can run and around and play, definitely a laid back atmosphere. Food is great and you get a very generous serving for the price. One of Athens' best!

So the line took awhile for a Sunday lunch, but the wait for our food to come out was not too long. We both got the fish burrito - which was phenomenal. The chipotle sauce was the right amount of spicy. I would definitely recommend...More

After golf and heading to the tour championship in Atlanta we spent the night in Athens and decided on Cali N Tito which turns out to be a good choice. No alcohol so BYOB and it's cash only which should be no problem, meals are...More

Nothing special, just grilled veggies and bread, but not a bad price, and really cool atmosphere! Service with a smile, but again not impressed with vegetarian options. I'll try again and review again, but nut now.

Several of our friends like Cali N Tito's, so we thought we'd give it a try. BIG mistake! The food was okay -- just okay, not great -- but the atmosphere was almost unbearable! Loud, frantic, children riding tricycles among the tables, constant beeping and...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.
