Fantastic. This family-friendly Mexican restaurant offers plenty of high chairs. Plus tables are often packed with families, chowing down burritos and chips & guac.

Main Menu:

Anna’s is known for their mission-style burritos. Burritos are filled with your choice of beans, rice, meat and then artfully rolled. There’s also quesadillas, tacos, Mexican plates. Favorites include:

  • Tacos El Pastor
  • Regular Chicken Burrito with Cheese
  • Horchata

Red star_15x15 Do you best to know what you are going to order before getting in line. Regulars can grow impatient with “newbies” asking staff lots of questions.

Kid’s Menu:

Anna’s is working on a kid’s menu. In the meantime, there are plenty of family-friendly options including mini quesadillas (perfect for little ones) or a side of rice and beans. And what kid doesn’t love dipping tortilla chips in house-made quac or salsa?
