It's tiny and if it's cold and windy outside it may be inside too but that's OK. I've been going to Little Anita's for years and years and it may be my favorite Mexi place around although they'll tell you they are New Mexican. You order at the counter and try to find a small table. Don't look for large... More

Best take-out breakfast burritos - EVER! Fresh, made to order with really great chilis and sauce - yum! I'll be back for sure!

considering it's in a strip mall on a very busy street it is terrific! We are vegetarians and there were ample choices for us and for everyone else as well. We might as well have been back in Taos NM.

I was not disappointed in eating here but the #3 plate I had consisted of two enchiladas, chile relleno, rice and beans. Tasted very good (too much cheese for my taste). You order at the counter, get a number and they bring it to you. Service friendly and prompt, place overall clean but not a lot of tables. I have... More

I have to admit, when we chose Little Anita's I thought we were going to a different restaurant, one that is no longer in business. New Mexican food generally has a different taste than the ubiquitous Mexican restaurants around Denver. So when we walked inside Little Anita's, I was instantly aware that I was not in the eatery I initially... More

This review is by my kids. We like Little Anita's because of the friendly staff, speedy service. They let us get our on drinks. The food is piping hot and absolutely delicious. We want to be regulars. I agree with my kids and could not have said this better myself!

We were staying at the Fairfield Inn on Colorado right next to Hacienda Colorado. I had been waiting to go there for the first time after our 5 hour drive. My wife had heard of Little Anita's and insisted that we go there instead. I was not disappointed at all! A must to try!

Great AUTHENTIC New Mexican food, which was a great find for a New Mexican in town on business! The prices are reasonable as well.

I've eatten at these restaurants in Albuquerque but this was my first in Denver. The restaurants aren't fancy but the food is consistently yummy! From the salty taste of the tortilla chips to my favorite green chili, I've never had a bad fish or experience. Today I had their pork tamale plate. Plenty of taste right down to the rice... More

I've been to Little Anita's many times over the years and I never find it to be amazing. The New Mexican red and green chili that they are known for is so-so. Along with pretty much everything else on the menu. I know that many people love Little Anita's and swear by it but I just don't see it. I've... More
