And after numerous calls and e-mails to corporate headquarters (a worker there told us that only Mr. Big at Little Anita's could give us the official word), we finally heard from Larry Gutierrez:
I'm sorry I did not respond to your phone calls. I was out of town. Little Anita's since last week has had vegetarian green chile available in every restaurant. We are very clear that our customers in Colorado want vegetarian items, We get it.! We are currently working on new menus with additional vegetarian items and should be done in about a month.
We'll be watching for that new menu. In the meantime, Mr. Big might want to tell staffers at his spot at 1550 South Colorado Boulevard that veggie green chile should be made available to customers; when our reporter stopped in on Friday, she was told the chile was veggie -- as long as you didn't mind the meat part!
