Tacos are the best! If you want fancy dining this is not your place. Laid back and always friendly. Bring cash,no card accepted.

The evening that we went to Cali N Tito's, it was an unusually cool March evening. Since the dining area of the restaurant is (basically) outside, it was extremely cold in the area where the picnic tables are set up for dining. After we had...More

Walking in you are immediately drawn to the openness of the building with an open air wrap around porch and eclectic decor. Do not let the line bother you- it is a CASH ONLY establishment and it takes people a bit longer (plus now-a-days everyone...More

Enjoyed a fish burrito and a Cuban sandwich. The food is very good. Prices are also good! Fresh ingredients. The portions also good. Great value for your money. The place makes you feel like you're on the islands. I'll definitely visit again when in Athens!

Been here three times and am still baffled why people like it, other than it is cheap. Food is ok, service is slow, parking isn't always easy. And, they only take cash.

Fun place, outdoor seating. I typically get the open tacos. They are not particularly fancy or gourmet, but they are tasty. Usually quite crowded.

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.
