Let's start with the correct location~

If you can't find the restaurant on Blowing Rock Rd, you're OK. It's on Boone Heights Drive, next to Burger King. Cool and tiled inside, the cheesy enchiladas will cool you off on a hot day and warm you up on a cold one.

The staff at Los Arcoiris have always treated my family and I like family. Whenever we are in the mood for Mexican (and mainly whenever we go out in general), we don't need to consider going anywhere else! The food is consistently hot and tasty, as well as fast. And the service is always friendly. Prices are great too...really good... More

There are SO many Mexican restaurants in this town. But hundreds, maybe even thousands, of locals can save you a lot of trips to the wrong restaurants. EAT AT LOS ARCOIRIS. We've all tried them all, and this is the ONLY one we all adore. Sometimes (after church, for example) the line goes out the door! But normally, even at... More

I must admit that I order the same thing every time I go (Tacos de Carne Asada and Chile con Queso). Their prices are good. There is ample seating and plenty of parking. If you go at the lunch hour, it is often crowded. Our waiter, Fernando, has always been friendly and helpful. The other wait staff while proficient in... More

Not going back. Over the years it's gotten worse. I now get sick every time I go, not sure why, guess I'll just go somewhere else. Crowded too, tables are crammed.

This is the worst Mexican place I have ever been to. We went here for lunch today, and this is the first time ever at a restaurant that I have stopped eating after a couple of bites. I ordered a lunch special, consisting of an enchilada, taco, rice and beans. It was disgusting. The beef was tasteless, and the beans... More
