The thing that separates Anamia's from a lot of the other Tex-Mex restaurants is it's atmosphere. Where most other places are usually decorated with Mexican fare on the walls and are always playing loud music, Anamia's takes a different approach. Inside the glass doors, you'll find a modern and contemporary atmosphere with quiet music and good lighting. It looks a lot like a trendy NY eatery, but it's a whole lot less pretentious and snobby. It's almost always busy whether it's lunch or dinner, but its definitely worth the wait. The lunch menu consists of roughly a dozen items starting at $5.99. The reasonable prices explain why this restaurant is packed everyday during lunch with business professionals and housewives. We usually go there for dinner if both of us are getting off work late and we don't feel like cooking. I almost always order the Sizzling Fajitas ($10.99) and she gets the Carne Asada($10.99) - which is essentially fajita steak meat with all the trimmings, but no tortillas. Both are delicious. The enchiladas are also very good. The staff is polite enough, but are usually pretty busy and don't come around as often as you like. In fact, we have noticed that we get more attention from the ""chip and salsa"" guys, then we get from our waiters. These ""chip and salsa"" guys are constantly walking around checking on tables to make sure they have a full bowl of chips and plenty of salsa. As soon as you begin to run low, they are bringing you more. I wish we got that kind of attention from our actual waiter. Oh well, the chips and salsa help me forget about it. The food is great, the price is reasonable, and if you can wait 20-35 minutes, it's the place to eat at in Coppell.
Pros: great fajitas, unique and delicious queso
Cons: pretty busy most of the time, service is ho-hum, a lot of kids at dinner (ugh)
