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.

The Breakfast Burrito, smothered with green chile is the best in Los Alamos! They really do a fantastic breakfast!

Viola's is my favorite place in Los Alamos for breakfast. I usually have the bacon and eggs with wheat toast. Eggs are always cooked to order and the food comes fast.

Let’s face it, the decor is 1970s at its worst. But if you want quick, good, local southwestern food that won’t break your pocketbook, give this place a try. We usually get a combination plate (a modest $8) that comes with homemade green chili and...More

I love northern New Mexican food (yes, there is a difference!). I had the blue corn enchiladas with beans and posole and I was in foodie paradise! This seems to be a popular lunch spot with the locals. Even being busy, service was quick. The...More

Viola's was wonderful! Laid back but super service by friendly owners. Not much to looks at outside, or inside. Just one of those special breakfast diners where the 'regulars' always sit in the same place. We were seated immediately and picked out our breakfasts. We...More
