Food was average, service was very good, and they open before Old Town on Saturday

We were quickly seated, and about the only people in the restaurant as we were too early. This was the only place around or in Old Town to get a bite and drink before 11 AM. The chicken quesadilla was very good, but the beef taco was just OK. Hot sauce and chips are good. Service was charming... read more

We were quickly seated, and about the only people in the restaurant as we were too early. This was the only place around or in Old Town to get a bite and drink before 11 AM. The chicken quesadilla was very good, but the beef taco was just OK. Hot sauce and chips are good. Service was charming and helpful.

Little Anita's in Old Town offers the standard Mexican food. Nothing outstanding from the combination plates to the average margaritas. Large plates with emphasis on quantity rather than quality. Not bad, just average.

I ate here twice while in New Mexico last weekend. I had intended to try a different restaurant the second time, but it turned out to be closed. It was late and I was hungry, so I decided that Little Anita's would do once more. I was not disappointed. The restaurant is a little bit dated (thought clean) but the... More

This is quite a big restaurant and looked really busy on the Saturday night when we drove past, so we came back on Sunday to find the place unbelievably empty. We were seated straight away, even without a booking. The menu was extensive and I ordered the enchiladas which is my 'default' Mexican choice when I am overwhelmed ... and... More

Made a mistake because they changed the single taco price.. came in to pick up a take out order for tacos with a 32 dollar BILL for TACOS.. They had 4 people waiting for me there to make sure I didnt run away.. I paid $32 dollars for tacos and left.. Should have fought this because they were totally aggressive.... More

This restaurant sits on the edge of the old town area. It's easy to find, but their are much better choices for food in the area. Monica's El portal comes to mind. Anyway, the food here is average at best and the service was nonchalant and sloppy to say the least. Atmosphere wise it's your typical Mexican restaurant. I can... More

Came to this location because my daughter said it was good southwestern and Mexican food. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great either. Prices were reasonable.

Several of us ate at this restaurant. We all liked the food we ordered. It was very appealing to look at. The taste was great! It was recommended by our tour guide and was worth the little walk we had to make to get there.

We were greeted with a warm smile and quickly seated, both were welcome after a crazy morning. The food was good, quick and spicy.

After two tries at this restaurant enough is enough. The first hint is the cave-like atmosphere during mid day. If I can barely see the food on my plate there may be a reason, and it turned out to be a valid concern. When I asked the server if they used MSG he told me that a lot of ingredients... More
