I've been eating at Anita's for 20+ years. They have consistently maintained an extremely high quality of both food and service. Everything I've tried on the menu has been delicious. My favorites are Tocho's Quesadilla and Enchiladas Suisas. Tocho's Quesadilla is like no other quesadilla you've ever had. The Enchiladas Suisas are hands down my favorite Mexican food EVER (it...

Superb drinks, okay chips, and some very good meals. Service was outstanding. Plenty of parking. Can be tricky entering from El Camino and please do not attempt crossing El Camino on the way out!

The restaurant is interestingly located on a bit of a hill with these huge power generators on the outside. Anyway, got seated pretty quick, started with some chips and semi-spicy dip, but quickly got some guacamole that was all right, a bit creamy. The waiter who we had was very fast and efficient, and recommended me the carne asada which... More

We used to frequent Anita's when we lived in the area so thought we'd visit again after many years away from the area. To say we were disappointed, would be mild. We were a party of eight and therefore an automatic 18% was added to our check. For good service, we would not have minded at all. However, the server... More

I had the ranchero chicken burritos which were good (maybe a little heavy on the sour cream.) Beans and rice were good. My wife had the chicken tacos and said they were good.

One cool evening in Oceanside Ca. I was on the hunt for a particular Mexican restaurant. I could not find it so, just before giving up I stumbled onto what I had truly been desiring. A clean, friendly environment with delicious Mexican food and lots of good vibes.
