Throwback into Time

Step into time and feast on a great breakfast. I’ve never eaten lunch or dinner here but I bet it’s spot on. I wasn’t alive in the 60’s but I can certainly feel nostalgic for the time when I step into Little Green Onions. Another Riverside Gem. Service is decent and the prices are better. The... read more

I have been enjoying this Riverside gem since high school (over 10 years) and they have never disappointed. I no longer live in the country but whenever I am in town I make it a point to stop here. We ordered the Machaca burrito, and the chicken taco salad.... both were so yummy! Love this place, hope they never change!

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

It was an ok place. We went for breakfast. Prices were reasonable. Food was a little greasy. Nothing spectacular.

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.
