We are trying different places in Athens while our son is in college there. Today we chose this restaurant. It's not in downtown nor on the main drag. The parking lot entrance is a little hard to identify when driving in a lot of traffic....More

Usually very full because of really good food for college students and parents who want that college experience. Prices are reasonable, solid menu in a picnic table and incredibly quirky decor. A must Go To while in Athens.

Quality latin food for bargain price. Cash only. Good service most of the time but can get crowed sometimes and you have to wait for your food for quite some time after you order. Still it"s worth it since food is good.

The food was really excellent, and the atmosphere was fun. You order at the counter and the food is delivered to your table. The special combo was good, and the plantains were especially good.

I loved the food here! Delicious bistec de pollo with rice, beans and plantains .... soul food for this girl from Miami! We enjoyed sitting on the deck on a beautiful, breezy day in Athens and the place was packed! One downside is its appearance.....More

Really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The prices were very reasonable and chicken quesadilla and empanadas were great.

Our group of 15 ranged in age from young teen to mid-50's and we all loved the food! Highly recommend the fish tacos, fish burrito, and the Cuba special. Remember it's BYOB and cash only. Great post-game meeting place!

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.
