We've been going to Anita's since my kids were tiny and they are now in their 30's; also, I have never felt like remarking about any restaurant online before, but since we've moved out of the area and since we're coming back for a visit, I wanted to see if Anita's was still there because my mouth salivates just to think of their sauces. There's nothing fancy about Anita's, but having lived in New Mexico I can vouch for their authenticity, their patio is family friendly and lively, and if I could live back in Fullerton, I would once again be a visitor of Anita's as often as I could afford it. Their prices are quite reasonable but the economy keeps people from going as often as they might like, is what I was saying.

Pros: Best New Mexican Style Food west of the Rio Grande

Cons: can't think of any; service is great!

We used to really enjoy this place. its walking distance from our house. it seems the last handful of times we went there, the food was just not cooked correctly. But overall it's a good value. The chile relleno's are my favorite.

At Anita's you will find quality New Mexico style food at a fair price, The flautas are really good especially if you get the pork. I also like the sopapillas.

what a great little out of the way restaurant - the food is wonderul and the desserts are the best! Prices are really good, and they are great with larger parties.

If you never had tasted New Mexican cuisine before - Anita's is the real deal. Just like how Grandma made it in Albuquerque, the chile is real, the meals are for real and everything is served in good portions. I hope this place stays around forever...

Pros: Authentic NM Cusine

Cons: too far from LA :(

Just down the street from the absolute heart of downtown Fullerton, you can find a little yellow and black stove front where you can find Anita's. In this little mom and pop place you can find fresh tortillas and authentic New Mexican cuisine. Try the Indian taco salad and followed by light crispy chewy sopapillas for desert

This is the yummiest food on this side of the New Mexico border. I have been ordering red and green chile from the internet for years trying to obtain the New Mexico flavor. Anita's has it! Great food, decent prices- awesome service!

It's a little cramped and not too comfortable but the food is great! I have been in there three times when someone has come back looking for a lost wallet or credit card left behind and they always have it! They are honest, hard working folks who are keeping their family business alive! I would love to see them expand but not at the expense of their food.

Pro: Yummy food
Pro: Good Prices
Pro: HONEST and polite people
Pro: Fast Service

Con: Cramped and small with extremely uncomfortable booths
Con: The Spanish Rice (could use some improving)
Con: Only beer and wine =(

Anita's New Mexico Style restaurants name says alot, truely Unique spice and chillis, only found in the New Mexico area are what set this restaurant apart. The Stuffy dinner is superb! Take a sopailla (a puffy deep fried bread) and "stuff" it full of carnitas cooked in a green chilli (for 24 hours) add more green chilli on top, rice, and beansand this is a meal. You will find two more sopapillas served with honey as the dessert. this is a meal and a taste not to miss, or forget. Other items of note are the big red and green combo, indian taco, and fresh taquitos. Worth the drive (alot closer than Albuquerque).

Cons: , small parking lot

Anita's may be the last New Mexican restaurant left in Southern California. We've been going there for 17 years now. If you haven't tasted the difference between New Mexican chili seasoning and South of the Border tomato paste chili seasoning, you owe it to yourself to get to Anita's no matter where in SoCal you are. If they ever go out of business you'll have to travel to the Pueblo country to taste the cuisine.
The menu is varied, but the specialty of the house is the several dishes that are made with Carne Adovada (carnitas with an indescribably good true New Mexican seasoning). I never order anything else.
Restaurant has a homey Southwestern feel, but it's cramped inside and the patio dining area is outfitted with cheesy plastic lawn furniture. But you're not going there for the atmosphere -- it's the food and nothing but the food.

Pros: Unique S/W cuisine, Moderately priced, Good service

Not your typical "Mexican" chow, different flavors
and dishes entreat the taste buds.
