We stopped here on the way out of Athens, after reviewing on TripAdvisor. The reviews did not disappoint. You order at the window from a small menu, but the food is excellent, very fresh and large portions. Be sure to stop in!

We have driven by this place several times and were always intrigued by it. Decided to stop today and had the fajitas and tacos Mexicanos. So fresh and flavorful. Definitely the best kept secret in Athens for authentic Mexican food. We will return. Take a chance and you will not be disappointed!

Completely off the beaten path even on a busy stretch of highway. This is a gem along the way. Fresh, full of flavor. Not fancy at all so don't expect it. Order at the window and have a seat inside the enclosed porch or if the weather is nice, at one of the outdoor picnic tables. Wait staff is most... More

This spot is just a mile or so from Sandy Creek park where we often go hiking with our dog. The food is wonderfully authentic and the small outdoor patio area is a tucked in gem where you can hide from the highway traffic noise. An oasis!

I first stopped there a few years back after a day at the park and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and outside seating. Then, when the food came out I was definitely delighted. Good south/central american flavor, good service and great ambiance. I have eaten there frequently through the years and keep returning. GOOD PRICES too.

We have passed this restaurant many times and decided to try it today. Great decision! This is the real deal Mexican food. We had the tacos Mexicanos with pork and the Cuban torta with steak, ham and chicken. Both were amazing!! Very authentic and the place was cute. Service was good as well. We will definitely go back!

You've got to try this place! Cozy, quaint little family owned Mexican restaraunt. The tropical gardens outside make you feel as if you are in a Paradise. If you like it "hot" try their homemade authenic hotsauce. Got to try the fajitas. Nothing fancy, but you'll feel right at home, part of the family.
