In the past this was a place to take visiting guest to get a sampling of the old west. Only a 30 minute drive from the greater Phoenix area. Now I guess Covid has taken it toll. limited indoor seating at small tables meant for...two, but extremely crowded for four. Menu prices have gone up substantially. The food was good but nothing special. A sign at the front dest said management was not requiring employees to wear masks, that it was their option. None of the young employees wore masks. This was the 4th of March which was totally irresponsible.More

This isn't authentic Mexican food. The food was just average in my opinion. Nothing super tasty, but a wide variety of items on the menu. Service was a little slow. Turned off by all the political signs in the restaurant.

Anita’s was recommended by a local of Wickenburg and we are so happy we took the recommendation! The staff was super friendly and quickly brought water, chips and salsa. We ordered the skinny margaritas and they were so good and refreshing after a day of...ATV riding in the area. The salsas, mild and hotter, tasted home made and were so so good. My husband ordered the shredded beef taco plate and said they were packed with deliciously seasoned shredded beef. I ordered the house special chimichanga with shredded beef and ate the whole thing. The food was served very dry hot. The servers were both so friendly and helpful. The food authentic and delicious. Reasonably priced, 2 meals and 2 margaritas under $40.00. We both were craving it again the next day. We’ll definitely be back next time we’re in town.More

This was a great find in Wickenburg. Family owned business with great authentic Mexican food. You can tell the locals love eating there too! The owner was so friendly and outgoing as well. You can tell she takes pride in her business!

Food was good, but got a VERY, VERY SMALL MARGARITA for the price of $6.25. We got about 4 gulps down and the small glass with lots of ice was empty.

Not authentic Mexican food at all. The Pork tamales were absolutely dreadful. I’m sure there are other things on the menu that are better but my experience was not a good one. Food was also cold and had to be sent back. Not to mention...the staff was lazy and did not serve quality. The owner also did not enjoy hearing constructive criticism of his business. If the food was better amongst all of the other things, there wouldn’t be this poor review.More

In these pandemic days, we expect all restaurants to practice the recommendations of the CDC to prevent the spread of Covid. We were surprised that Anita's Cocina is not doing that, as the staff were not wearing masks. Since they have no patio, we ordered...carry out and ate at a picnic table near the City Hall. The food is good & the place is very busy so it must have a good reputation. We did notice in Wickenburg in general, some people wore masks and others chose not to.More

This is our second time to Anita’s and to make things better, we went with a close friend called Anita. We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit some months ago and did the same this time around. They were carefully adhering to COVID controls, which we...were happy about. As usual, we really enjoyed this little Mex eats joint in Wickenburg which has become our go-to Mexican there. Everything here is simplicity itself, yet the attention by the servers, staff and management is commendable. On this trip we totally enjoyed their fab Chips & Salsa, not to mention an amazing Chile Relleno served with terrific rice and beans, among a few additional entrees and full meals. We love there décor and southwestern feel.More
