Delicioso

Went with family, good options for kids, the sopapillas were flaky and perfect, the blue corn enchilada to die for and the huevos rancheros fab. We asked for Christmas chile to sample green and red - perfect

We had a great New Mexican meal that was tailored for those of us who can't take the heat! We, also, had excellent service from our waitress (Mary). The level of business when we were there for lunch would be a good indication that they are a popular spot.

Ordered a club sandwich for lunch. The sandwich was good just not an abundance of meat on it which is quite normal for this locale. The atmosphere was friendly and most of the people were regulars from my observations. Overall, an enjoyable visit.

Viola's is a popular spot with the locals particularly for weekend breakfast. I always order the huevos rancheros, christmas and have never been disappointed.

Our first visit to Viola's although we have been to Los Alamos to visit family many times.

When we first got here a longtime local told us Viola's has the best green chili in the universe. He was right. It's sublime. Don't get me wrong -- everything else is good too, but people should drive here from Santa Fe and Albuquerque (and Boston) just to have the very best of something at a great price. Decor is... More

Viola's offers fast, friendly service. Excellent green chili. Prices are very reasonable. Breakfast burritos are great also.

That fact aside, I'm an Arizona Cardinals fan, they have pretty darn good New Mexican food. I've NEVER had ANYTHING there I didn't enjoy or wouldn't eat again. Maybe one day the owner will see the error of his ways being a Cowbums fan but, until then...I'll continue to enjoy the food at Viola's.

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.
