We love coming here! It's like meeting weekly with our family for a delicious meal. Our week is missing something if we can't make it there for some reason.

We have tried this place now on 3 different occasions. We have still yet to like it, so we've called it a 'no' for now. Couldn't believe the last time we were there we'd have to pay for a 2nd basket of chips if we wanted it. What? Yep, that's right. There are so many more better mexican restaurants nearby.... More

Anita's has good Mexican food, and fajitas, although it is slightly expensive for the amount of food you receive. I really enjoyed it all the same! They also have an express drive thru in front of the restaurant with good tacos!

I was excited to try this place. The atmosphere was nice and the decor was beautiful. It started to go downhill as soon as the chips and salsa came. There was just no flavor! The staff was super nice and helpful. I had a taco and burrito combo and although the ingredients were very fresh, it all lacked seasoning.

Always a great experience. Fresh food--wonderful, casual atmosphere. I am from Texas and have had all kinds of chicken tacos...but Anitas are always the best. Our family has eaten at Anitas since 1996 and it is always worth it. Great rice, beans, guacomole, sangria, etc.

Went for a business lunch. Pleasant and prompt service, very tasty food reasonably priced and quiet enough to talk. And great Guacamole to boot!

I love the drive thru. Ive only tried the tacos and burritos here, and they are HUGE. At first I was like "Why are tacos 2.50 each?" but then I quickly understood as soon as the bag was passed to me through the window. I like the Carnitas stuff the best!

Great family owned and run restaurant. Great homemade guacamole and queso dip. Always a friendly staff and clean tables. Well worth stopping in for a bite

Wonderful place to eat and share good times with family! I have never complained about any meal here! And the flan for dessert is excellent!
