Been coming here for years. Great atmosphere. Nice people. Good food. Big menu, from Breakfast dishes to Mexican food. Thursday night taco specials. But the main reason I keep coming back is, they are the only restuarant that I know of that serves Cream of Wheat the way I like it. You can have it made with milk (preferred) or... More

This is your typical 1960 era breakfast cafe. Nothing fancy anywhere. Good service good diner food. You get there late morning they can run out of specialty items on the menu.

We love Little Green Onions! When you walk in and see the rock wall and low food counter, you are immediately transported back to the 60's...all they need is some Beatles music in the background! If you're looking for delicious, old-fashioned breakfasts, this is your place. Don't come if you're looking for atmosphere or healthy food, although I'm sure they'd... More

My 95 year old father-in-law eat here several times when I visit Riverside. It's down town and off the beaten path but it's got great food. Being from Santa Fe, NM, I always have the Burrito for breakfast (it's huge) and Tacos for lunch (they'r huge). Both the Red and green chili are delicious. The price is not out of... More

A wonderful combination of hole-in-the-wall hominess and cooked-to-order yumminess. We eat here every time we visit Riverside. Good food at shockingly low prices.

Very Americana diner with a bit of Mexican fare. Good service. Usual menu selection. Nothing to brag about but it is what it is for a quick bit e to eat between appointments.

If you want a great breakfast with great service, this is the best place to go. Their pancakes are fabulous. Everything I have had has been very good. This is our weekly place to go with all my friends. Easy seating, prompt service. The place is a little worn and dated , but I would rather have quality food.

This is a hole in the wall place that we have been going to for over 10 years. The prices are very reasonable and the food is good. Obviously, there isn't a professional cook in the kitchen, but your standard So. Cal. mexican food is simple anyway. About the same price as a fast food place, but a much better... More
