After having tried one of Albuquerque's foremost New Mexican restaurants and being disappointed, Little Anita's in Rio Rancho was a pleasant surprise. I ordered the Carne Adovada burrito with rice and beans. As with many New Mexican restaurants, you are served a bowl of salsa / Chile sauce and chips to start with. The salsa included large pieces of fresh green chilies and diced tomatoes.
The burrito was of a substantial size filled with only Carne Adovada which is made with pork in a red Chile sauce. It was nice to not have other fillers (veggies, beans, etc) in the burrito. The meat was tender and was close in consistency to large chunks of pulled pork. The red chile sauce was plentiful with just enough heat. The sides, beans and rice were standard fare and did not stand out, but did not detract either.
At the end of the meal, the waitress brought out a fresh hot sopapilla with a squeeze bottle of honey. It was nice that they brought the sopapilla out at the end of the meal, so that you could enjoy it hot with honey as a dessert.
The service was adequate but not outstanding and the atmosphere was open, bright, and welcoming.
I would not hesitate go go back again and try other menu items.
