This listing should be pulled. New owners took over the space. It's gone. It's gone. Okay, that's 100.

Good location in the original historic part of Los Alamos. The food was okay but service was very poor.

Tried out the new Manhattan Project restaurant Friday night. It was busy, and we had to wait, but once seated all four of us read the menu and all decided to try the same thing....the Chaco Filet. All four of us ordered it prepared differently, from rare to well done, and all four of us were delighted with the results.... More

We have frequented this establishment for 5 years. The "new" restaurant features drinks that seam poor or weak,the bartender was backed up without help and it wasn't busy. Dirty dishes from patrons long gone and the celery in our bloody Marys wilted and mushy..yuck. Service was slow but we had nowhere to go. We looked for a manager but couldnt... More

I have to agree with those who say the Dixie Girl was terrible. But since then a new owner has taken over, Victor Medina, has taken over and I look forward to the improvements I am hoping he will bring. It is now called The Manhattan Project, a name chosen by a poll of the locals. I have had lunch... More

This is one of the worst restaurants I have ever eaten in. The service was lackluster to say the least. My husband and I ordered burgers how can anyone screw that up? I told the waitress exactly what I wanted on the burger but when she brought the burger it was not right; I decided to pick off what I... More

Friend at LANL recommened this place (used to be Central Avenue Grill) now owned by the folks who operated the Hill Diner. Found out they moved on and another person owns the place. Was seated by a blonde manager, who after waiting for a wait-staff, decided to take my order. When I asked what the soup of the day was,... More

We were a little surprised to have to wait about 10 minutes for a table at lunch. We liked the menu and found it had plenty of choice. The food was good, we all liked the sweet potato and chili cheese fries. Service was friendly and efficient. It was good value for the price.

I had the turkey burger and sweet potato fries. They were very good. My wife had the hippie, but she did not like the bean sprouts on it. Good service and within walking distance of the Bradbury.

My wife and I visited Dixie Girl on 9/20/2013 at 12:57PM. Not the best time to go. It took an hour to get our food delivered. Three rude females were at the table next to us laughing loudly. We asked to be moved but were told space was un available. We asked that the females be asked to quite down... More
