You wouldn't expect this place to be that good, or at least I didn't. But I've eaten here a few times, and if you don't mind the atmosphere (or lack thereof), the food is really great. Viola's has something here. Now if only they could clean up their place and decorate/renovate.

Please, this place is not on Central Park Sq., hasn't been for 11 years, but owners told us, they can't get anyone to change it. At least TA has a picture of it, so I will add that it is on Trinity in the old KFC building. We all opted for the Green Chili Soup with Beans. Probably one of... More

Really good breakfast burrito, large with green chillies. Well stuffed with potatoes, eggs, sausage and cheese. Honey on table, coffee kept full.

When I lived in Los Alamos, I used to have breakfast at Viola's Restaurant every Friday morning, often with friends. Located in an old KFC building on Trinity Drive, Viola's is not fancy, but the food is good and the service is very friendly. I especially enjoy their green chile and their red chile, which are classic Northern New Mexican... More

I have eaten at Viola’s twice. The first time I thought the food was tasty, but I was surprised that when they mention “beef” on the menu, they mean hamburger, not the shredded beef I would have expected. The service was ok, not great. The restaurant had that dingy, in need of a real scrubbing feel about it. The second... More

Many folks talk about Viola's so I wanted to try it when I visited my old home town recently. Strange to walk into the old KFC and have them serving NM fare. No atmosphere except a few familiar faces. Food was average but I guess if you're stuck on the Hill, it's better than making the long drive to Santa... More

This restaurant has good food, friendly service at reasonable prices. I had the combination plate and all items we tasty. You get choice of red or green salsa.The atmosphere was just OK. This is not for fine dining, just good food at a reasonable price in a friendly diner.

Jammed at 11:30 Tuesday morning, we waited about 10 minutes for seating. Fast, friendly service and good food. Friends had Mexican daily special and I had BLT. Nothing special, but good food.
