Awesome food. Kids enjoyed it. Chicken was cooked perfect, chicken quesadilla and chicken burrito. Fish tacos were awesome. Salsa is homemade.

I was so happy to find this place! Delicious and unique dishes, indoor and outdoor seating (no apparent AC, though, just be aware! They do have a lot of fans running) and an area for toddlers and kids to play while we ate! Portions were big, and there were tons of choices on the menu. BYOB.

Veggie Saltado was a huge portion and filling. Fish burrito was good too, and banana milkshake was a perfect finish. The ambiance is extremely casual. Bring cash. No credit cards! Bathrooms could be cleaner, but I don't think anyone goes to Cali n Tito's for the bathrooms.

Great fried plantains and cubans. Close to Sanford Stadium. Bruno is a great local business owner and cares about his community and the food he serves.

While visiting Athens we were driving by and just saw this place and decided to take a chance. And we were so glad we did. My husband had the fish tacos and he loved them. Fish tacos are one of his favorite things and this place did not disappoint. I had the ceviche. They asked if I wanted Mexican or... More

We received a recommendation from the peeps we're working with at UGA and didn't really know what to expect, but I'm glad we chose to take their recommendation! It's delicious and the environment is really fun. Even though it's crazy hot here (especially for this Minnesotan) and humid, we didn't mind sitting outside, since there's not really a choice. It's... More

We eat a ton of Mexitcan, Tex-Mex and New Mexican food (at home a few states west) and had an awesome surprise at this little gem that had a Peruvian flair. Decor was funky (in a great way) and we benefited from a delightful night as we sat outside at a picnic table. I had a taco sampler of sorts... More

After living in Miami for 2 years, I've hit a plateau when it comes to Mexican, tacos, and anything South American but this place definitely jazzed it up! I loved the funky homey decor where it was shabby cozy with wooden tables, random memorabilia, pet parrot outside, marooned on island playground, and grungy dim lighting against tin can lights. Don't... More

My family and I stop here every time we visit UGA. The food is well prepared and tastes great! We enjoy it so much that we consider going twice during our weekend visits. Very casual and cost effective! Pet friendly if you sit outside
