Thumbs up to this restaurant as they found let us have a table quite late in the evening. The décor was a little tired and the seats were obviously well worn as they sank into a dip when you sat, but they were not uncomfortable....More

We visited this restaurant twice during our visit to Albuquerque. Both times, we were greeted with smiles and were seated right away. The food is excellent.

Just on outskirts of Old Town. Food was excellent and abundant. Had a seniors menu. Service was very good considering they had a large group when we were there. Highly recommend. Atmosphere was good and noise level moderate.

Looking for authentic Mexican food in the Old Town district, service was slow at mid afternoon and we had to ask for status of our drinks, food was good, atmosphere good

If in the area do skip this place. The food is terrible. We left truly dissapointed and not satisfied. The staff is great, the food doesnt cut it. Food presentation was poor too.. Tomatoe ends were served and avocado was brown!

Was all set for some good Mexican food so although the food tasted good it was not Mexican at all . Disappointing when you have your brain set. Had steak tacos that had onion and peppers. Flavor was good but it tasted like a steak...More

We had a lovely visit to this restaurant, the staff were very friendly and informative. Enjoyable ambience throughout.The food very traditional - we had a great time here, very well located near the lovely downtown area. We would highly recommend anyone to eat here.

I ordered a taco dish and it was OK. My wife ordered the taco salad and found that the beef in it had a strong odor and flavor. We sent it back and she ordered a vegetarian enchilada which was almost all zucchini and tomatoes...More

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.
