“A good meal”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We stopped there since we do not go to any chain type of Mexican Restaurant because they are not up to par. Mom and Pop shops is where you find the good food. The food here was very good, tasty and not layered with cilantro like may places do. Tasted fresh and full of flavor. I would suggest this to anyone looking for good Mexican food.

“Good margaritas and delicious food”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

There are two Anita's in Oceanside. One on South Coast Highway a few blocks from the beach and one on El Camino Real. If you are downtown eat at the one on South Coast Highway. Near the mall check out the other one. They used to belong to the same family so the food is very similar as are the prices. Family just split so kept same name. Authentic Mexican food with lots of chips and salsa available.

“Good Mexican Food”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We enjoy eating at this restaurant. Chips & Salsa are great. The meals were ordered and brought to our table very quick!! Their tortilla soup is good and so are the carne asada taquitos. We love their beans at this place.

“Anita's in Oceanside”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

4 people eating 4 different items and everyone was very pleased. I would think this is a locals favorite. Walking distance from our hotel so we were able to enjoy the great Cadillac margaritas. Can't wait to come back.

“Terrible”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

One of the worst meals ever. Cannot understand why the parking lot is so crowded when the salsa was the only tasty item in our meal. Crabless crab enchiladas and odd tasting shrimp ranchero. Had to request water twice. High priced for poor quality and not enough waitstaff. We will not return.
