I grew up in New Mexico and was really looking forward to eating here. The only thing New Mexican about this place was the stacked enchilada and their green chiles. I had fajitas that were pretty bland. My wife had a rellenos that she said...More

Good food and really kind folks. My husband loves their chicken fajitas and I love their soups. And it's affordable. Although, I eat very little and wanted to order from the kids menu. They didn't let me. That was a bummer. Other than that, like...More

Beats any Mexican restaurant at Reston Town Center. Love the balance of quality of food, ambiance, service, and value. Especially love their booths. Why pay for parking at RTC? This is such a great location. Have always loved going here for lunch or dinner.

I had a really bad experience at an Anita's a loooong time ago and it took me almost a decade to try them again. This time it was in Herndon and the food was much better. Nothing earth shattering, but for the price it's good.

Feels authentic and homemade. Delicious combos and chips and salsa. Yummy refried beans. Small place but service was prompt and fast.
