Adequate Food

Reasonably priced and consistent food quality. Reminiscent of an old school diner. The staff is pleasant.

We have had breakfast at Little Green Onion when we were in Riverside. The food is amazing, regular American breakfast or Mexican breakfast are tremendous. Ever have nachos and salsa along with your breakfast? At Little Green Onion that delicious option is available. The lines can be long but worth the short wait. Riverside is worth the ride off the...

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.

So People talk about 99 cent tacos i think on thursday. I am not a big fan of crispy fried taco shells but i got the chili verde quesdilla. IT was SOOOO good. Really big by the way so you can share with another person but so delicious. The service was great and friendly. The atmosphere is a bit outdated... More
