I especially love the Tortilla soup!! Probably one of the best I've tasted. The guacamole is great too. They prepare it at your table. Great food and great service!

Anamias - Bland City on August 16, 2009
Anamia's is a popular local place because of its sheer location, right between several middle-upper subdivisions in Flower Mound. The first thing you will notice upon walking in is how LOUD the place is. While there is a high ceiling, the tables and booths are jammed so tight that even an early lunch will find you screaming to be heard at your table, especially when they crank up the music. Yes, there is a "patio" if your thing is watching cars park in hundred degree heat - at least you can hear your conversation during a meal out there.

But the food is nothing to write home about. It is every bit like El Chicos combined with On The Border, except more bland. The service can be iffy - fine one day and listless the next. The cheese sauces are like Velveeta with one pepper per gallon. The traditional Tex-Mex is predictable, bland, without any range.

The alcoholic drinks seem to suffer from a wide variation - you will notice more people cozy up to the bar than going to booths, I think it is to insure the drinks are strong enough by directly addressing the bartender. The people-watching here at the bar is perhaps the most interesting thing about Anamias - the happy hour crowd is quite obviously where the boss takes the young assistant to get tanked before reporting in to the wife, and the beautiful people get especially loud vying for attention there. It can be quite the circus on a Friday evening, especially if you get a booth where you can see the bar clearly.

The overall impression here is - this place is the Mexican food version of the Chili's across the street (even though Brinker owns both Chilis and On The Border). Its a family place that seems to aim at being as bland and as crowded as possible. You could visit any one of a dozen places in Flower Mound - corporate and non-corporate - and find the same fare. Come prepared to find children and geriatrics screaming equally loud to be heard by their families and the service staff.

Pros: Watching husbands pick up chippies at the bar

Cons: Noise, food, noise, overcrowded, noise, bland!

.

Enjoyed the food and the service was good. We enjoy sitting outside when possible even though we overlooked Southlake Blvd. Conveniently located. Food was hot and as expected.

The only thing I can say about Anamia's in the negative is that too many people like it! If you have more than a couple of people with you for lunch, definitely call ahead. This place gets crowded quick, and the tables are a little too close for comfort. You may have a problem hearing your friends over the tables next to you. The food here is excellent. I have had the fish tacos a number of times, and they are the best I have ever had. Last time I was in, I tried teh Garlic Crusted Tilapia. Now I love garlic, and even I had to scrape some off, but the taste...WOW! I could also make a meal out of the guacamole and salsa here, they are both tops with me!

Anamia's is one of my favorite tex-mex restaurants. It has a great location and awesome food. Their salsa is definitely one of my favorites. The patio is great to sit on during a warm day.

We are frequent visitors to Anamia's in Southlake. Why? Simply it is the **best** tex-mex food this side of town... and we are known for driving hours just to have good Tex-Mex food. The menu is simple, the portions generous and the service great. Fantastic for families with kids. The waiting staff is attentive to the kids and their needs - we have a 1 year old and a 4.5 year old. The table side guacamole is very good. They even mash some without the fixings for the kids!!! I had a work group dinner for 10 people there this week. Service was fantastic, everyone was served at once. My clients said they would make the trip to Southlake just to go to Anamia's.

Anamias has some really great mexican food to chose from. This location is very convenient and great for a lunch get away from the office. If you are not at work, definitely try their margharitas as they are amazing.

We have been going to this particular Anamia's for about 3 years. We are there almost every Friday evening. The food has always been OK, but very decently priced, BUT the margaritas have always been exceptional. The wait staff and bartenders are wonderful, in a way that they know your name and have your drink ready when you reach the bar. Well, ALL that has recently changed, and all within about 2 weeks. Now, all the employees are new, and everything on the menu has gone up in price a considerable amount. And, the margaritas are certainly not what they were.

We are looking for another place to call home.
