The service was beyond excellent. Food was delicious and fast. First time trying sopapillas and honey. A great spot with local flavor and friendly faces. Won't forget the many conversations with staff!

I went here for a late night dinner with my family. We had good service and good food. I got the Chile relleno plate which was excellent. Hot and crispy and gooey on the inside. Would go here again.

We stopped for breakfast on our trip through Albuquerque. It was amazing! Huevos rancheros and breakfast skillet were highlights. Their green chile sauce was perfection- spicy hot with green chile flavor. The waitress was very prompt and went out of her way to help my little boy (who really only likes food at home). They have hot cakes and eggs... More

We made a reservation and it was honored/table was ready for us.The food was better - a ton of choices and there wasn't a dissatisfied person in our party of 10. We finished up our meal with sopapillas, which were great.... More

We were pleased overall with the food and service, and enjoyed our dinner there overall. The portions were really large so you may want to consider sharing if you have a small appetite.

We sat outside, which is outside but you really can't see over the wall, so not much to look at. Our server came and asked about drinks, we requested water while we thought it over. We then ordered an appetizer and shared a vegetarian burrito, which was one of the only things on the menu without meat. Our server forgot... More

We choose this place because they served a late breakfast & are so happy that we did. They had a pet-friendly patio and our service and food were excellent! This will definitely be a repeat next time in ABQ.

Description
For a taste of grandma's cooking and a bit of homemade comfort, come to Little Anita's, which has been serving authentic New Mexican food for over 40 years. Named after the founder's mother, and based on family recipes handed down for generations, Little Anita's is an Albuquerque institution. Our iconic flagship restaurant, in the heart of Old Town, is beloved by locals and a must-visit for any tourist. You haven't been to Albuquerque if you haven't eaten at Little Anita's. Our menu hasn't changed much in the last four decades, and we're proud of it. In a fast-moving world, our restaurants are an oasis of tradition and sentimental cooking. When it comes to our signature dishes, we like to keep things simple. We believe in the purity of our ingredients and keep a clean flavor profile. You won't find your food overloaded with seasoning and your taste buds won't be overwhelmed with spiciness. Our chile tastes like chile. You know a Mexican restaurant by its chips and salsa. Have a seat, take a few bites and find out why so many regulars say, "you had me at chips and salsa." Yes, it's that good.
