Always have a good experience when we go to Anita's. The wait staff is always friendly and give good service. The food is always good and at a fair price. Continue to go back for these reasons.

Been coming to Anita's for a number of years...often. We stay very close to the Venice Jetty and have hot dogs at the Sand Castle regularly. You just can't buy hot dogs this size anywhere. They're HUGE! And reasonable. The Belly Buster ($3.50) is about...More
