Good food, inexpensive, served hot and promptly

Anita's is an old standby for Mexican-style food in Northern Virginia. It is a reliable, go-to place for well-seasoned food that is served hot and arrives promptly. The Chantilly restaurant is short on ambiance, but it is a comfortable place to eat and the service is good. Their breakfasts are... read more

This restaurant claims to serve New Mexico style cuisine. We lived in Las Cruces, NM for many years, and nothing that Anita's serves reminds me of the food of southern NM. Recently we order breakfast burritos from there for a business meeting. They were small and tasteless.

I have been here for breakfast and found it wonderfully tasty. My friend and i decided to come here for lunch as we roamed for the day. The menu was a bit low on vegetarian items...but I was able to find something that would work for me. The food was tasty, the waiter a bit diss-attentive, but it was a... More

Hubby had visited this place with co-workers. So we stopped by on our way to the airport as we were flying out. I didn't know what to expect, I like Mexican food but spicy foods in the morning I just didn't know. This location is fairly large, they have two dining areas and the takeout is in the middle. I...

Been a patron for 25 maybe 30 years. Miss Anita was a fine businesswoman - miss seeing her Rolls Royce in the driveway may she rest in peace. Arroz con Pollo is my favorite, my wife enjoys their chicken taquitos - we always go home with a pint of Salsa. Excellent place to stop for a beer and their Margarita's... More

This was the fourth different Anita's we've visited. The food is delicious and consistent between locations. The Hollenbeck is excellent and the same can be said for the Chile Relleno. Service is prompt but not rushed. We look forward to our D.C. area visits because of Anita's

One of the BEST Breakfast in the NORTHERN VA AREA!! Authentic food and hospitality in an area which is riddled with FRANCHISE packaged/prepared foods!!! This food is cooked from SCRATCH!!! I MUST TRY!! Value priced!!!

Friends who had been to Anita's many times recommended it to me and I immediately understood why they liked it so much--the food! While the restaurant itself is small and unimpressive from an aesthetic standpoint, the food was truly outstanding. I ordered a breakfast fajita that was both delicious and large enough for two people! My only regret is that... More

The food is just flat awesome! Service was prompt and professional. Parking is a little tight but you should expect that at a good restraint. I recommend this cantina.... go now!

This was our second or third visit to Anita's over the many years of visiting and we have always enjoyed eating here. However, we were a little disappointed that our side order of guacamole for about $2 was the equivalent size of what we get for free at other Mexican restaurants when ordering fajitas. We felt cheated and would have... More
