“Fun, quirky, delicious place with more than just your average Mexican food.”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Second visit in last year on visits to UGA student son. Very casual place with lots of fun outdoor seating. Great mix of mex, tex, Latin food and a great value. The pico de gallo is yummy with chunks of avocado in it. Order at least one order of it with chips per every two people in your party or you will not get enough for yourself! We had pork, steak, chorizo and fish tacos. All were very good. Fish burrito and chicken tamale were also delicious according to others in my party. The fried sweet plantains made a fabulous dessert to share.

“The Restaurant Version of a Mexican Taco Stand”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 via mobile

Had a friend recommend this place as a good lunch stop while traveling through Athens. WOW, just wow! The prices are very low, the food is delicious, and the hot sauce burns so good.

I ordered a fish taco, chicken taco, and pork taco and was delighted with my choices. The fish and pork tacos were very close to some of the best taco's I've ever eaten. The chicken taco was good but I would recommend pork or fish over chicken hands down. Each taco was about $2 making the three of them an incredibly delicious, very filling, affordable lunch.

In addition to great food there were a lot of really good authentic Mexican soda's (we went with the grapefruit on and really enjoyed it).

We did not go during a busy time but I could see how the parking and wait could be an issue if it was packed but that is an issue in most of Athens (see 2 Story Coffee House). Also make sure to bring cash and be willing to move your dishes when you are finished.

Overall, a fancy restaurant this is not. But if you are looking for some incredible food at a great price look no further. I will be back.

“Great food in very casual atmosphere.”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

I had the fish tacos which were very good. The rest of the family was equally satisfied. Next visit, and there will be many more, I will try to read the whole menu. Hard to take time to review all the options with the menus available only at the counter - felt like I was holding up the line.

“Inexpensive”
Reviewed 1 September 2013 via mobile

The food tasted ok. Had the fish taco which had good flavor but everything was cold and the tortilla never saw a hot skillet. Salad was ok. Very casual order and pay at the window. Bus your own table pre and post meal. Maybe we hit it on a bad night

“Great lunch menu”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

I was only able to dine here once, but if I'm in Athens again I will definitely eat here again. The Fish Burrito was like a fish sandwich in a wrap, fresh ingredients and very tasty especially with the sweet plantains inside. The tostones weren't quite cuban style but still very good. I really enjoyed the food and the environment.
