Good breakfast for NM style food

Their breakfast is actually good with eggs and potatoes, breakfast burritos, and huevos rancheros. Free chips and salsa while you wait. Hubby likes pretty much the rest of the menu. Service is ok, affordable prices, but it's kind of a dive.

The food was barely average quality, a tad greasy, not what you'd expect paying more than fast-food competitors, and just not as good. Service and cleanliness were also not up to par. I tried this place because it had been recommended, but I won't go back.

Anita's has several location, but this is my favorite. It is more crowded and louder than some of the others, but it has a friendly atmosphere. The food is more like traditional Mexican food I had in Nogales on a visit than some other restaurants in the area.

We just moved to that area and decided to visit that place that is right around the corer. We sat outside. Service was very good. Food was actually pretty good too. I have ordered strawberry margarita... it was not bad, but could be a bit stronger as I did not taste anything but strawberry syrup. Should definitely visit!

I had chicken fajita. Hugh chunks of chicken was served on a lukewarm plate with some coarse green peppers. There were some resemblance of a salad on the side and some lukewarm rice. Another plate had some small flour tortillas in aluminum foil and a bowl of soupy refried beans.The dinners of the rest of the family were no better.... More

I didn't eat anything, we just got there sit and roaches started to welcome us, we had our 1 week old baby. We told the waitress we need to go because of the amount of roaches they have and we simply left.

We stopped at Anita's on the way home from a winery for dinner and it matched our expectations. The food is decent and comes out pretty quickly. It's a small restaurant, so I'd imagine it could fill up quickly. Anita's is very casual, so if your looking for decent casual Mexican, this would be a good place to go. I... More

I have tried several of the Anitas locations, and each offers excellent, high value breakfast burritos, made to order and delicious tasting. I like the regular and the chorizo!

Very good Mexican Food. The "fast food" décor looks somewhat tired, but the facility was clean. Service was great. Prices are reasonable. Portions are very good. Good Mexican food is hard to find around northern VA.

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 good and the lunch/dinner menus have all of the expected... More
