Mexican
The Face of 4th Street

Añejo - A stunning multi-level sky-lit room, inspired & interactive Mexican cuisine, Canada's largest tequila selection, and Calgary’s best margarita.

Fresh, locally grown ingredients, cooked to perfection in Mexican style with a flair for contemporary flavours. Vibrant, boisterous, and bold. The province of Jalisco is the inspiration behind our Fresh Ceviche, handcrafted Margaritas, Para la Mesa Guacamole, and Molcajete Bowls; both prepared in traditional lava-rock mortar.

Open daily at 11AM - we offer lunch until 3PM daily, featuring the "Speedy Gonzales" lunch combo. Our famous #halfyhour is 3PM - 5PM and 9PM-close daily - all tacos & tequila are half price and all margaritas and beers are $6.

Tequila - The finest, & possibly most misunderstood spirit in the world. All of our carefully selected tequilas are made with 100% Blue Weber agave.

First date night without our baby! It was nice in the “new normal atmosphere” to have our own space. Our waiter was great and very attentive and the food was amazing as always!

Over all the experience was good. Music was lacking, would have been nice to play latin music and capture the theme of the restaurant.

Seems like the food quality went down since the last time I’ve been there. The pork tacos there was no crackling as previously had. Other than that still a really good place to dine at

I didn’t like that we could only access the menu through our Phone because it used up my data when I was going through it which I didn’t want to. As well I was up in the top part and I don’t like sitting up there because it’s so dark and away from everything I generally prefer to be sitting on the main floor where it is more light because upstairs is so dark. As well, I was upset that there is no future taco of the month but at least there was a feature margarita this month. The watermelon was good.

Everything was excellent except I was a bit disappointed with the service.. we were seated at 4:57 pm.. waiter came to table at 5:02 pm and would not honour your happy hour as it ends at 5pm.. was a bit frustrated with that..
but food was divine and my ginger margarita amazing...
We will return but definitely want to arrive at 4:30 to take in happy hour specials. Thank you.

I've been to Anejo dozens of times before. This time was ok... It's just not the same atmosphere with COVID protocols in place. And the guacamole had avacado skin in it, which I think is partly due to not making it at the table right now.

We’ve always enjoyed coming to ANEJO every now and then as it is one of our favourite restaurants to eat at and we were very happy to hear they were open again so we wanted to come out to support. As always, the service and atmosphere was fantastic; even with all the new measures put in place, the overall experience was just as great.

The atmosphere was nice, however, the table and seating area were very small and cramped. Our server was very attentive and pleasant, our glasses were always topped up and he was readily available if we needed anything. The guacamole was excellent and the on table preparation and presentation made it quite memorable. The steak tacos were extremely chewy and stringy which made them difficult to eat without having to remove portions of the meat while in mid-chew. It was evident that the steak was a lower grade and prepared inadequately, I suspect it was an oversight and probably not the norm. It was a pleasant evening and I'm always happy to go to a different restaurant but I probably won't return to Anejo.

Disappointing. Remembered why I wasn't going to come back to this restaurant from my last experience three years ago. I'd forgotten but remembered once I ate my meal.
Quality has continued to go down hill. There are many other very good tasting Mexican restaurants, fresher ingredients, more authentic and not as expensive.

My son and I went to Anejo to have tacos and enjoyed the YYC Food and Drink a Experience it was a great value. The restaurant was quiet, our server was lovely and although some of the food was a little spicy we loved our meals. Chips salsa and guacamole, four flavours of tacos and two perfectly sized decadent desserts! Yum. Highlights were guacamole (a must), tacos so good (beef was my fave) and we loved the tres leche.

We’ve been to Anejo a few times and this visit did not disappoint. Sadly my mid day son and mom meal couldn’t accommodate my favourite margarita “The Cadillac”. Looking forward to going back to Anejo soon.

Had an afternoon lunch date with my cousin and her daughter. The food was decent, the tacos weren’t as great as I remembering them being know and they were too spicy for my cousins daughter. The guacamole and margaritas were delicious.

Food was ok - Enchilada was not what I expected ... it was more like a casserole - probably wouldn’t recommend it or order it again
The tacos looked good
Guacamole was outstanding

It was my first time at Anejo and I took my daughter there for dinner. The first thing was the seating, although my daughter got a nice padded bench with back rest, I got to sit on a log. This place is not a restaurant but a bar as it was so loud that the waitress could not even hear us when we ordered. The
ceviche appetizer that we ordered was delicious but only came with 8 tortilla chips the size of a loonie
We asked for more but by the time they came we were almost finished. The mocajeta de carne was dry
and lacked a salsa in it. Now the best one, the arrachera was a joke, when I ordered it and the waitress
asked me how I wanted it done, I asked for Medium, which she replied we recommend medium rare. I again told her I prefer medium. When the food got there the first thing I noticed without even touching
my steak was that it was not arrachara, as arrachara is flank steak and is very thin. I tried cutting into it with my steak knife and could not even cut it. Then looking at the steak it was completely rare inside.
The asparagus wrapped in was looked like raw bacon was not much better, the rice was really good.lol
If you are under 30 and have never been to Mexico or eaten Mexican food, like to yell alot at your table
and like to drink overpriced Margaritas the size of a large shooter then you will absolutely love this place
