Readers' Choice: Little Anita's

Little Anita's is an institution in New Mexico, where its locations spread across the state and its history stretches back forty years. In the Land of Enchantment, foodies in the know generally consider it a destination of last resort; they respect its longevity, yet think of it as a place to stop if you want to kill an afternoon making fun of tourists. But in Denver, where authentic New Mexican fare is hard to find, Little Anita's is a must-stop for sloppy breakfast burritos slathered in either green or red chile. This is the best red chile you'll find north of Raton Pass: a serious, honey-sweetened red that's fiery enough to convince Denver's green-chile addicts to change their allegiance.

and the Cruise Room is my fave


Excellent review.  Nobody in Santa Fe / Abq would be caught dead at a "little anita's"  (not when they have places like Los Cuates)

but for Denver it's about as close (red chili - Carne Adovada) as you're gonna' get.
