So, what's Coloradan Mexican? It's a great green and New Mexico chiles on everything. Anita's is a great little restaurant with a wide range of Mexican dishes we ordered pork and plain tamales with green chili sauce. This was a to go order and we got black beans to go with it. The food was scratch made, very tasty and... More

Dropped in after work to grab something, ordered nachos to go, the cheese was a solid mass, probably a half cup of olives and jalepenos. Completely inedible.

It's tiny and if it's cold and windy outside it may be inside too but that's OK. I've been going to Little Anita's for years and years and it may be my favorite Mexi place around although they'll tell you they are New Mexican. You order at the counter and try to find a small table. Don't look for large... 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.

I was not disappointed in eating here but the #3 plate I had consisted of two enchiladas, chile relleno, rice and beans. Tasted very good (too much cheese for my taste). You order at the counter, get a number and they bring it to you. Service friendly and prompt, place overall clean but not a lot of tables. I have... More

I have to admit, when we chose Little Anita's I thought we were going to a different restaurant, one that is no longer in business. New Mexican food generally has a different taste than the ubiquitous Mexican restaurants around Denver. So when we walked inside Little Anita's, I was instantly aware that I was not in the eatery I initially... More

This review is by my kids. We like Little Anita's because of the friendly staff, speedy service. They let us get our on drinks. The food is piping hot and absolutely delicious. We want to be regulars. I agree with my kids and could not have said this better myself!

We were staying at the Fairfield Inn on Colorado right next to Hacienda Colorado. I had been waiting to go there for the first time after our 5 hour drive. My wife had heard of Little Anita's and insisted that we go there instead. I was not disappointed at all! A must to try!

Great AUTHENTIC New Mexican food, which was a great find for a New Mexican in town on business! The prices are reasonable as well.
