Had the fried avocado with mango salsa taco special, really good! Very small place, seats 12-14, not fancy, favored by locals. Very reasonable prices. Burgers looked great.

Dinner in this down-home restaurant was a pleasant surprise. As far as I could tell we were the only non-locals here. The service was great and the food was very good. My wife had a taco salad which she said was "excellent." The flavor of the shredded beef was especially good and the 1/2 portion was plenty for her. My... More

I love coming to los alamos and always have to come for lunch! My favorite is the cherry cokes, salsa, and shakes. For a quick easy and delicious splurge!

The burgers here are always tasty! I usually always order the queen or king cheese burgers with jalapenos!

We were traveling the one highway and got hungry so we pulled into Los Alamos. We asked a person in town, very small town, where a good place to eat was and they said Charlie's. We traveled a bit more to the end of town...not far... and found the restaurant. We chose to sit outside and ordered a club sandwich... More

A really eclectic local place with indoor and outdoor seating--or order to go from the window. OUTSTANDING breakfast. The menu offers traditional items (pancakes, eggs, waffles), but also amazing Mexican food (chorizo, menudo, etc). Love love this casual, friendly spot. Will definitely return.

Charlies in Los Alamos is a classic kind of place that you don't find often anymore. In Los Alamos it is the the oldest operating restaurant as many new places have arrived in the last few years. Say hi to Juan, and the many other local personalties that work in the restaurant and kitchen.
