Viola's was opened by my mother-in-law, Viola Jaramillo Pepin, in 1988 in White Rock, a suburb of Los Alamos. We moved to Los Alamos in 1989. Viola passed away in 1998 and the restuarant was run for 5 years by #6 of her 7 sons. I(Belinda Jaramillo), took over ownership in 2003 and am helped by my husband, Ronnie, and our kids and grandkids and a longtime loyal staff! We serve Northern New Mexico cuisine and sandwiches, burgers, etc. Viola taught me her recipes starting when I was 16 yrs. old. They are original and still used today.
