No matter what you order you will be pleased. I took the waiters advice and was happily surprised by delicious greatness. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Quesadilla and enchilada were amazing. Margarita was delicious Fun atmosphere and probably the best parking lot considering the cramped downtown area with limited parking.

During our recent visit to Albuquerque, we ate here both evenings. Good food and drinks. We look forward to returning when we are back in Albuquerque.

At the edge of Old Town, Little Anita's is one of my favorite places to eat. Excellent food. Good service. Sopapillas are fabulous. In fact, I haven't ordered anything here that wasn't top notch.

When walking near the Plaza, I came across several restaurants where Chiles Rellenos cost about $20 per meal. Margaritas were about $9—per glass, not a carafe! I figured at those places with two margaritas, tax and tip, I’d spend around $45—far too much for Mexican...More

I was attending a conference nearby and in looking at their menu online noticed they had a wide selection for vegetarians. Their food was really good. It definitely is a more tourist-oriented restaurant. The chile's aren't super spicy (which worked for me!) and you get...More

Its pretty gross to eat here and its also the same price as any other place that actually seasons their food. This is like prison or school food really. Bland and from a can more or less on everything, and not cheap too.

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.
