We ate at PJ's on a recent trip to Mountain. The food was true down-home cooking. The staff was wonderful. Food was freshly prepared and well done. We will be back!

Fun eclectic decor in this little diner. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Everything we had at lunch was freshly prepared. The mashed potatoes were actual potatoes, no mix! The other veggies were from local farms. Everything was well seasoned and delicious. We returned a second time because of the fresh food and excellent service. Fresh from scratch pies... More

The Razorback cheese burger and pie were terrific. Their garden fresh tomatoes and green were also very tasty. My wife enjoyed their homemade potato soup. Great food and service.

Rainbow Cafe is good for breakfast with large portions and good service. The only real issue is the flies! The city has one trash can right outside the front door and another 10 or 15 feet away, both swarming with flies. Of course they come into the cafe every time the door is opened. There is nothing quite like trying... More

This cafe has the standard small town dining fare. It's not fancy fine dining, but good solid food. It's a place that the locals come to enjoy the food and visit. The wait staff is friendly and warm, as you would expect in a small town.

This was a great little place we found on our annual trip to Mountain View. Food was tasty and they were accommodating for our large party of seven. The only reason that I didn't give it a full five stars was because I thought it was pretty dirty. I am all about the general ambiance of the traditional "greasy spoon"... More

We always eat here, when we're in town. This time I had a jalapeno burger and onion rings. YUMMO!! Seriously, everything I have eaten here has been spot on.

I had heard the Rainbow cafe was the 1st restaurant in Mt View. I read some reviews and had to try their burgers. The burger was an old fashioned made on the grill cheesy goodness. Homemade onion rings and homemade pie topped off my meal. Would definitely go back.
