I had the French Toast eggs bacon and sausage. My wife had a three egg omelette. The food and service were excellent. We started by our waitress asking if we wanted chips and salsa. While we thought she stated that if we have to think we must want them. She was fun. We will go back!

Small restaurant. Been opened as long as I can remember. Local favorite. Taco Tuesday. On a major street where almost every bus stops. Family friendly. Daily specials. Small room available for private parties. A little of everything on the menu. Mexican. American. I even think they serve breakfast all day. I think. Parking lot is a little small, but I've... More

I attended a breakfast meeting at Little Green Onions. We had a group of ten and were seated in the back room. The service was excellent. The waitress also had duties in the main restaurant, but never neglected us. I had ham and eggs. Well prepared and very flavorful.

Perfect sort of local spot to get a big plate of tasty food. Traditional fare with a Mexican flare. What a great breakfast menu! This one is a winner. Busy but lots of booths and tables, with a wait staff on the move. Full of everyday people just getting some good chow. Nothing at all fancy, but clean and neat.... 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!

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 omelets are huge!

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.
