If you want "Mexican" then reconsider. Little Anita's is NEW Mexican, as in the cuisine of New Mexico. There are offerings that are "Mexican", though. I was in Denver visiting a friend. Knowing its relative proximity to NM as compared to Chicago, I looked up...More

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.
