This restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch, mostly used by the lunch crowd of working people in town. The food is good New Mexican cuisine, portion are generous and the atmosphere is very friendly. Popular with locals.

Before our trip to New Mexico, we were told that this place had authentic New Mexican cuisine. I guess that's true but it's also an unpretentious place with reasonably priced meals. If real New Mexican food means whole pinto beans on your plate rather than...More

Visiting Viola's is like going to a friend's house for breakfast. Most of the patrons are local families, not tourists. The food is good, portions generous, and prices very reasonable. Sports memorabilia are on just about every square inch of wall, so there's plenty to...More

About the best northern New Mexico food available in Los Alamos, NM! Great breakfast and lunches, burritos, enchiladas, and tacos, and if you just want a Hamburger, they’ll fix that too. Give it a try!

Very good local New Mexican fare. Small restaurant, gets crowded at lunch time, 11:30 to 1:30. Good breakfast served anytime. Busy restaurant with table service.

Nuff said. Get some healthy meals, folks. This is 1960's diner meets diabetes. Ugh. On the other hand, there is a good ole folksy feel about the place and the prices are affordable. But I just can't do greasy 1960's food.
