“Great venue for New Mexican fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

Just a little different than your average Mexican restaurant, Little Anita's features New Mexican menus and some excellent choices. Great sopapillas, tortas and other specialties. Their filled sopapillas are excellent. Don't fill up on chips and salsa!

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

The wait was over an hour at breakfast and there was only one other table seated! Once we got waited on and eventually served, the food was bland and forgettable.

“A shameful excuse for little Anita's”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

If you look at my reviews, you'll see another r review for little Anita's on Colorado blvd. (that location ROCKS!)

Unfortunately' the sit-down restaurant on Yosemite in greenwood village has a lot to learn.....

After at least 6 visits there I can firmly attest that although the food is good and quite tasty (in the little Anita's tradition) the service simply sucks and they consistently serve cool-lukewarm food. EVERY time for the last 6 visits!! You would think I would kno better than to keep on going there but I really wanted to see if various times or days of the week would make a difference.

Yo..owners and managers of this place...wake up and fix it!! Either fix or replace your staff with attentive and caring folks AND teach your kitchen and waitstaff to deliver HOT food!!!

Sorry guy, tasty ain't good enough...

“Fantastic Rellenos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

Great little restaurant with a bar and outdoor patio seating. The rellenos are the best I have ever had in my life, even in Mexico ! Great food with outstanding service. Excellent guacamole ! They have a thick rich red chili sauce that is unbelievably good. It is not for the faint of heart. If you do not like spicy then stay away. The red sauce was voted best in Denver according to their sign in the lobby. I believe it.

“Mediocre food & terrible service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

Stopped into this restaurant for a quick lunch. The food was cold and greasy. The staff was both inefficient and unfriendly. Taco Bell couldn't have been worse.
