We had dinner here one night during a visit to the area. My wife and I thought the food was very good and the pricing was amazingly inexpensive. Not a bad gem in the middle of nowhere.

I enjoyed the Morganton version of this restaurant and the food is good here as well. They have really great salsa and chips. The Pollo Loco (Thinly sliced Chicken Breast with Cheese Sauce, Rice, Refried Beans, Guacamole salad) is one of my Favorites. I also really enjoy their Fajita Tejanas which is a Beef,Chicken and Shrimp Fajitas. They also have... More

All Mexican food in the high country is the same. It's low quality Tex Mex. But you know it becomes tasty when it's all you have. You find yourself craving it. We all have had better in other towns but we are not in other towns. It's the same when you are out eating pizza and there's always that guy... More

We've eaten at this location at and at the one in Boone and thought the Mexican food was very good. The food was very tasty. The service was very good. The food came out fast. We would definitely go back

This is one of our family's favorite places to eat out. We live in the area and have been to Los Arcoiris many times! It's a very affordable place, with something for everyone. My kids love it! Friendly staff too.

We ordered fajitas. Beef was not great. Not a good evening atmosphere. Very bright lights. Waiter was not very friendly.

The reviewer who said he/she was from the southwest and this was real authentic must be from SW China . . . I lived in Arizona 12 years, my daughter lived in Mexico City, and I now live in Charlotte, one of the fastest growing Hispanic locations in the country.
