“Great taste at an even better price!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Anita's was recommended to us by locals and it was one of the pest pieces of advice we got during our stay in NOLA.

Anita's is not your 5 star restaurant location...its just a diner. But don't let the looks fool you. The food is downright home-cooked taste! They are open 24 hrs a day which means you can breakfast 24 hours a day! The portion servings are large and very filling. If you are on a diet or you have concerns about the fat, salt and sugar content then this place is not for you...fried is the cooking of choice! The staff is down right down to earth...no airs and frills here.

If you are looking value for you dollar then Anita's is it. We were sorry that we didn't find out about them sooner.

P.S. They are a CASH ONLY establishment.

P.P.S. We will be back!!!!

“Worth the wait.”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We had about an hour wait and there wasn't much organization during Essence at least not on Saturday Morning. But the food was good when we finally got it.. I would definitely go again if I went back...

“The BEST local restaurant!!”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

During our vacation, we asked the waiters of the tourist restaurants where they ate. And it was unanimous. ANITA'S!!! This little place had the best local food and everything is cooked to order. Love it! Will visit everytime we're in New Orleans!

“Soul Food Good For The Soul”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

When my husband and I come to New Orleans we have to eat at least one meals at Anita's because it the down home that we were brought up eating. Although the parking is not the great the food is to die for.
