Always had a great meal here. Beef sandwich, Yucca fries and the Amazing Empanadas. Well worth the drive. Best Cuban I've ever eaten. Either location. Go Early before the games!!

The chicken sandwich I got was amazing, and it could have fed me twice. There's a reason this is one of the most recommended places in town. It's cash only, but there's an atm next door.

I will come back here until I get everything on this menu--it's genuinely different and delicious! Open air dining--bring your dog--super casual and doesn't take plastic! You can bring your own adult beverages and pay a 2.00 drinking fee--brilliant!

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.
