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!

If you want typical Mexican food, don't go here. My food was excellent every time I've gone. I have gad the raspberry chipotle chicken and tamarind chicken. Both were excellent! The rice was kind of bland. My dad got a chile rellenos. It seemed to be made with a dried rather than fresh pepper.

Went there for celebratory lunch. They were out of three things we really wanted. We were asked to pay for chips and refills on iced tea. Place still pretty but chairs hard as rocks to sit on. Maybe new ownership needed?

I wasnt really impressed with this restaurant. The food was decent but I've had better Mexican food at other restaurants in town. The service was really slow as well. This was the second time we've been and doubt we'll go back.

We were just at Anita's last week on11/10 and the restaurant was full. We still had excellent service, including a visit by Anita herself to make certain we were satisfied with our entrees. The chips were fresh, the cilantro in the salsa is special, but we LOVE the jalapeño bean dip! A variety of entrees were ordered and loved, my... More
