The Mexican food was just okay and the margarita seemed watered down. Prices were good, place was crowded, lots of families and children. Bathrooms clean, parking good. Entrance a bit gnarly to enter because it was close to light.

For those of you that remember this is the yellow house in downtown Oceanside..you will be pleasantly surprised by the new building just south of the old one. There is an updated vibe but the food is as good as ever. Try the street tacos,...More

The new location for Anita's is now open, but they definitely show signs of new restaurant syndrome. Slow and irregular service, incorrect or missing food, and just a general feeling of chaos as they get their footing. Understandable in a way - the new location...More

Friends and reviews raved... Unfortunately this place closed, and tells people to go to the new location, THAT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING OPEN... How poor is that? Their website also says nothing about the move!!!

I was out for a walk from Carlsbad and came across this cute restaurant. I had the Chili Relleno, with the chips and salsa and a nice cold Negro Modello. The salsa was some of the best I have had, nice thin Chrispy chips, and...More

They have a large back room that is often used by large groups. It's not closed off and private, but I'm pretty sure you could reserve it for your shower.
