Sr. Sol Mexican Restaurant
Sr. Sol is the best Mexican food in Athens.It's a little misleading that the restaurant name is Taqueria El Sol De Zacatecaz and not Sr. Sol. It's the same place. But when you mention to your friend that you went to a great Mexican place they always say, "Oh, Sr. Sol next to the gas station?" Yep, that's the place.I've been looking for authentic Baja style Mexican food since leaving San Diego in the early '90s and I had to go to Georgia to find it. I love going there for their tacos. I like the lingua (tongue) tacos as well as the barbacoa tacos. But the fish tacos, which are grilled and authentic, are to die for. Three tacos is all I need to fill me up, though their beans and rice - if you get a full plate entree - are good, too.It's a bit hard to find parking, and you may need to eat outside if it's busy, so plan appropriately. They do offer great margarita specials, too. I especially like their peach ones! And their freshly made chips and salsa are addicting.It's a great place to bring the kids as they have a large variety of choices on the menu and you can order plates for big appetites and a la carte for smaller ones. We mistakenly let my daughter order the veggie nachos, and she had it for breakfast and lunch the next day.Great prices, very casual, yummy food, nice waitstaff, good booze and crazy Mexican sodas. What else do you need?

Your Pie
I originally came here a week ago with my family do I could try the gluten pizza. However, they were out of the gluten free pizza dough. I was really really upset about it but it was too late to leave since my family's pizzas were already in the oven. Seeing my distress the manager wrote up a note giving me a free meal. Came in today to try The Hippie pizza (gluten free of course) and was not disappointed. The kids and I also enjoyed the "magic Coke machine" where you can use the touch screen to make custom cokes, root beers, lemonades, Sprites and more. You can also eat outside on the back deck. Your Pie food can be as healthy or decadent as you want, but it's always fun eating here!

Earth Fare
Earth Fare in Athen's Five Points area is the city's version of a mini Whole Foods. It's much smaller than a typical WF but offers similar variety of organic and natural meats, dairy, breads, supplements, personal care items, and more. There's even a dine in area to eat selections from the deli and hot food area. It's also one if the only places in Athens to have quality fresh seafood. That being said, Earth Fare is "whole paycheck" expensive. With Publix, Krogers, and Trader Joe's offering up organics and healthy food brands, Earth Fare is the place I go to if I can find a food or product somewhere else. Also sign up for their online coupons, which make some foods a very reasonable purchase

Trader Joe's
Part of the reason we were thrilled to move to Athens was the fact that Trader Joe's was here - and they do not disappoint! While the selection is limited compared to a grocery store, their prices for organics, cheese, seltzer water, natural cleaning products, wine and beer are terrific. They also have a good selection of gluten free items like Udi's breads, their own brand of snickerdoodle cookies, and brown rice noodles. My kids love the Trader Joe's brand cereal bars, too - especially the fig ones. With a very friendly and helpful staff, it's a one stop shop for all your gourmet and natural food needs.

As long as you bring a quarter and reusable bags, this is a great place to shop!!!! The prices are usually way lower than other grocery stores, and sometimes even beats the sale + coupon prices of other places. The cashiers are a lot nicer than normal grocery stores, too. They only carry in-season produce, though, and while that makes the prices super low, you can't be sure to get exactly what you need (especially if it's not in season).

Fuzzy's Taco Shop
If you're downtown Fuzzy's is a great place to get some quick tacos or burritos. I recommend getting a margarita. They're pricey but loaded with booze and yummy. My only complaint is that the place is incredibly loud due to the music over the loudspeakers and not the crowd. $2 tacos (I had grilled shrimp and crawfish) were tasty, but they really need to heat up the corn totillas!

The Taco Stand
Been going here for over 30 years and sad to say it has gone downhill. You can almost count on your order being wrong for the last couple of years. Food used to be great, especially for vegetarians like myself, but it is disgustingly gross to bite into a bean burrito deluxe and get a big mouthful of meat when you haven't eaten beef for over 30 years. Won't be going back.

Los Compadres
They had everything I needed and more.The prices are very good!Very nice to have this store near by.I recommend Compadres to everyone who is looking for items at a lower price and ones that can not be found in industrial grocery stores.

I believe this is the restaurant that now goes by the name SR. Sol. if so, it is absolutely delicious! I love it here and the service is excellent as well.
