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.

Went there for a dinner and for a breakfast. Both meals were very good, and portions were good. Staff was very friendly. And, the place was busy with locals

This is crappy food. I think the chips come from a bag and the salsa is from a jar. Just poor quality crappy food.

Service was very good. Nice menu choices. The food was very good even though it's part of a chain. The dipping salsa for the chips was great as was the green salsa on my dish.

I always enjoy Little Anita's. They have stores all over town and are very consistent. They have a great veggie burrito and the BEST sopaipillas in town bar none...

There are several Little Anita's around town. We frequent the one at Corrales and Alameda most often. Love the ability to call ahead and get the same food to take out. Our favorites are the shredded beef enchilada plates. So very yummy! And reasonably priced too.
