Best Chicken Fried Steak Ever

It's almost a waste of time to write this review as so many folks have reviewed this restaurant as excellent, I feel as if I'm wasting my time. Well, not so. I have to tell you about the best chicken fried steak I've ever eaten and it's right here at the Rainbow. They use real steak, none of... read more

Had driven over for the day (2 1/2 hours) and saw a good recommendation for this establishment on Trip Advisor. What a treat ! ! ! An extremely diversified, comprehensive menu which also included breakfast entrees. We had two different choices (one ate a breakfast plate, while the other enjoyed the open face roast beef special) and they were very... More

A quaint restaurant that is affordable and cozy to experience. A must for any Mountain View visitor. Breakfast served all day, homemade pies and daily specials that are warm and prepared with much care and attention to detail.

I eat here at least once a week. Great homestyle cooking and the waitstaff is great. If you frequent here they remember your name and your usual orders. Breakfast is the best meal there.

My wife and I tried this diner after a tour at Blanchard Springs Caverns, and we really enjoyed it. The food was great and the waitress were all very nice. My only issue is they do not take a card, so it's cash or check only.

If you want trendy, expensive food do not come to the Rainbow Café. If you want food that is well cooked and served with a smile then you have come to the right place. I could wish they would upgrade their coffee but other than that I have never had a bad meal. It is small and popular so try... More

Breakfast is great! They are busy, located on the square, but worth the wait. I've been for lunch, as well, the homemade pies are very good.
