“Small, but delicious breakfast menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

My husband and I ate here for breakfast and had a great time. I enjoyed the sausage gravy- which is usually under-seasoned in restaurants- and my husband and daughter (16mo at the time) loved the thick cut french toast with just the right amount of vanilla. The coffee wasn't anything to write home about, but when you are used to drinking organic, fair trade beans you grind fresh every morning, it is hard for coffee in a restaurant to match that. This place is popular for a reason. The food is good, the building quirky (layout makes NO SENSE and confuses first time diners- including us) and the parking lot could use another layer of pavement, but it is worth the trip! Great service too.

“Authentic Southwest Style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Anita's is a great place for family and casual dining any time of day, from breakfast through dinner. They serve authentic Southwest-style food and you pick the level of "heat." They have a lovely outside dining area as well as plenty of indoor seating. Service is prompt and friendly, and prices are reasonable. Anita's has a number of locations around the Northern Virginia area and the quality of food and service is consistent.

“Good for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Basic tex-mex was good. Nothing exceptional, but for staples of tex-mex like burritos, rice and beans, and tacos the food was a fair deal.

“The Best Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. Large Varity on menu. All fresh ingredients and cooked to perfection. Much better than the large chain places. The Chantilly location is the perfect size and the outdoor area, during the spring and summer is nice, although a bit noisy with cars from RT 50 and airplanes landing at IAD (although I love watching the planes). Go for it you will not be disappointed.

“Authentic Mexican Food at a Reasonable Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

Anita's is a great place for a good Mexican dinner. You do feel like you are south of the border once you walk through the door. The portion sizes were satisfying, the service very good, and the price was right. I will be making return visits to this hacienda!
