I have a sister-in-law who hails from New Mexico and what Anita's serves is definitely New Mexico food. It's different than Tex-Mex and different from real Mexican food from Mexico. This chain of five or six restaurants has been in the area for more than thirty years. The one in Burke is good and probably as good "Mexican-ish" food as... More

Ordered the tamale dinner for lunch, absolutely tasteless, the only thing good on the plate were the refried beans. Expensive for what was served. A few days later went with my daughter to the Acura dealer on Route 50 the other evening. There was an Anita's next door and the person in service recommended it while we had service. I... More

My favorite place for brunch! It's service is friendly, food is consistently delicious, and prices are affordable. New Mexican food and American food available for brunch. The endless chips and salsa are a great way to start a meal. I've also done carry out. The food is always ready and it's just as good as when eaten in the restaurant.

I've driven by this restaurant many times over the years and always passed it by, either because of the cheesy signs painted on the windows or because the exterior of the building didn't look inviting. Lately, the windows have looked more modern, without the loud painting, so I thought I'd give it a try at lunch. Although the service was... More

I forget about the great renovated ANITA's in Burke and need to visit more frequently. I love there bar area with tall bar tables and chairs. We caught up on the news while we were sitting there. Had lunch the other day here. Couldn't make up my mind so I ordered the appetizer sampler and so glad I did. It... More

I went early in the morning to buy a surprise breakfast for my coworkers. I had planned to spend about $100 to buy their famous breakfast burritos. I arrived at 6am (posted opening time) to find the doors locked and the employees simply looking at me. I was not the only customer waiting, and we mostly waited to see if... More

We ate here on a Saturday night, expecting it to be a little crowded -- there weren't many patrons there. Our enchiladas were fine. The spinach and mushroom quesadilla we particularly good, although extremely messy to eat because the mushroom slices were so large. With so few people there, it was still tough to get our waiter's attention and get... More

This is one of my husband's favorite restaurants. He loves Mexican food and he says is one of the best. We were there for 5 de Mayo and they even had Mariachis there. It was full of people and that was expected. Like the free chips and salsa.
