Viola's has good and simple food that is served to you fast. Seasonings are salt, pepper and green chile. The staff is friendly, It's one of my favorite places to go for breakfast and lunch.

...just so you know! I had the best huevos rancheros of our trip so far - the red and green chile was perfectly seasoned, the fried potatos done right and the pintos tasty (not that nasty refritos mush!). My companion thought his breakfast burrito was too dry, so why doesn't he order it smothered? I've never figured this out :^)... More

The breakfast choices range from traditional to burritos. I went traditional. The only complaint is that frozen potatoes were used for the hash browns. The tends to run contrary to much of the other food. I was troubled by all the Cowboy displays. But that is personal and not appropriate to consider, but be warned. It is interesting that virtually... More

I've eaten here a few times and each time I have enjoyed the food. It tastes great and arrives to the table hot. The staff are friendly and attentive. It's a great place for lunches.

My first exposure to New Mexican cuisine came from the legendary Viola herself, almost 40 years ago, and although she has passed on, her heirs have done a fine job of honoring her memory here. The fare is standard New Mexican -- enchiladas, burritos, sopaipillas on the side, etc. -- and reliably good, although not really great. (This is a... More

If you want a restaurant that locals pack everyday, this is the place. Great food that we love to eat. It basic New Mexico Mexican food. I always get the Red Chili Beef Enchilada with Posole. Most locals don't need a menu because we all have a favorite standard. This is a must visit restaurant - but remember it is... More

Different Mexican food than I am used to in Roswell, NM but oh so plentiful and delicious. Quite busy at lunch time but then the locals love it too! Would go again.

Violas is charming for its down-to-earth lack of attitude and delivering on the basics. Small, family run, very pleasant staff. The food is straight down the middle. Basically northern new mexico diner food. Nothing I have had here yet screams OMG, To Die For, but if you order a burger, you'll get a burger. Order enchiladas, you'll get enchiladas. You... More
