We went for dinner on a Saturday night in February, and it was awful. Our server FORGOT our table belonged to him (we literally had to get up and have someone go get him), then he forgot to put our order in, then forgot to tell us that one of the items ordered had been out of stock since 3...

My wife and I have been to the Barnett Shoals location multiple times and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. Whether it was appraisers or entrees everything was on point. The Fried Pickles were great! I highly recommend the Locos Philly Cheese Sandwich, Philly Burger or the Spicy Chicken Sandwich. The prices are reasonable and the... More

My Fiance and I went into this restaurant and had a bad experience due to a few employees. I left feedback on their website and was IMMEDIATELY contacted by the store manager as well as the owner. Huge shout out to Jamie Loftin, The co-founder and C.O.O. of Locos Franchise Company, for working everything out and personally setting everything right.... More

Granddaughter wanted to go here and she was right. Food was good, service was good. Nice selection on menu and has plenty of parking for Athens.

My wife and both ordered the Cuban Sandwich which in the past had always been good. She had jalapenos added to hers,mine was natural. They were terrible. The meat was just clumped up in a ball on one side of the bread and the sandwich had not been pressed flat as usually dictated by a typical Cuban Sandwich menu. The... More

I am certain the onion rings on a Black and Blue Steak Salad were fried in oil that had been used to fry fish. Nauseating.

The restaurant was less than half full, but it took a good while for our order to come. I ordered Cajun fries, and I received regular fries that were half-cooked, at best. I mentioned it to our server, and she gave me the seasoning used in the kitchen and told me to put it on my fries! The chicken sandwich... More

Went on a Thursday night with friends. We sat outside in a clearly marked "no smoking" yet had to deal with smokers all night. My husband and I ordered a margarita pitcher but the pitcher looked small and was filled 3/4 of the way with ice. We barely got 2 glasses out of it. Food was good but not outstanding.... More

This is a great local spot for grabbing a quick yet, delicious meal. My husband and I often grab a burger to go on Fridays. The place is hopping but the staff is very friendly, especially the guys who work the bar (where you wait for take-out). If you're a beer drinker and sports fan, you'd probably like this place...

The food isn't too expensive, but that's not why you go. Go for the friends, family, the sports, the company and the overall atmosphere.
