Good tasty New Mexican dishes. Long-time local favorite mini-chain. Chips and salsa on table. Good for breakfast and lunch. Getting a little overpriced which explains the owner's Rolls-Royce in the parking lot.

Every time my brother comes to town, Anita's is a first stop. We have been eating there since the 70's and never disappointed. Great New Mexican food.

Anita's has been a staple on Maple Ave in Vienna forever! It has survived because the food is very good. I like the pork enchiladas!

Nothing special, the food was not fresh. Service was just OK, and nothing stood out during the dinner. Sad...

Many people seem to like this place but it is not my favorite. Sort iof an Americanized Tex/Mex that tastes very commercial.

Anita's had been around for ages and it continues being a dependable chain of relatively inexpensive Mexican food.

Awful food...awful dining experience. Perhaps the worst meal I have ever been served in a restaurant! Bad frozen food that still had ice cold centers and freezer burns from the plastic bag they kept it in. Some of the food was actually unidentifiable. The waiter really did not seem to care. The place had only about two other tables so... More
