Looking for a good breakfast burrito in Los Alamos, we were referred to Viola’s Place, a true local Northern New Mexico mom and pop restaurant, clearly popular with the locals. The breakfast burrito, smothered, with green chile was very good. Coffee not so good (weak)....More

Traditional New Mexican food is like movies: everyone has an opinion. To my taste, this place offers flavorful traditional dishes. One word of caution: don't expect a smile or friendly banter from the cashier when you leave.

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 eat breakfast here often. Food is good and the service excellent. From the time you place your order, it may arrive in just a few minutes. Often faster than what I have experienced at McDonald's.

Very good food, friendly staff. If you're hungry, try Pepin's Special for breakfast! Family-friendly.

Dined here while visiting the area. Its a very busy place and had to wait for a table to be cleared. Some staff really hustled while others spent a lot of time talking to customers. Unfortunately ours was the latter. Food came out fast for...More

The food is pretty good for New Mexican Fare. The service staff is excellent. You never have to wait to place your order or receive your food, but that Cashier has got to go. Slowest cashier in Los Alamos. I've spent 15 minutes waiting in...More
