Tasty

Clean, good food, made an order special for me because they were not busy. It was good. A little pricey for Mexican but there are cheaper options

We eat there frequently, two or three times a month from April to November and have always found the staff friendly and the food good.

the theater group planned to dine here after their play ended. they had reservations that stated they would arrive late...9:30 to 10:00 pm. The kids arrived to find the place closed, the staff inside refused to open for the kids and did not honor the reservations. No clue how the food is as they did not honor their reservations. They...

We've enjoyed other locations of Los Arcoiris, so I knew this would be a safe bet for a quick lunch. Dining room was nice and clean. I was quickly seated in a comfortable booth by the window. Complimentary chips and salsa immediately. Service was also quick...I started with a cheese dip. The cheese was very hot and fresh, chips were... More

This place is the best mexican food around. The prices are great and the food quality is supurb as well. The service is the best around and the people who work there are always so friendly. The food comes out quick and is always fresh and good. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area.

Why I keep returning to this place is beyond me. The service is consistently horrible if the woman is waiting on you, well unless you're a male, then you're golden. The only reason she keeps her job has to be b/c her brother owns the place. She. Is. Terrible. As for the food, it is good, but you better watch... More

Low prices for loaded plates of quality tasting food. Many working folks, farmers, orchardists, firemen, policemen, etc come here for the price, the quality, and the quantity. For about $5 you can get a fully loaded plate of good and flavorful food, Mexican style. Free Nachos and dip served until your food comes. Best bbargain in Avery County.

This restaurant was superb! We were greeted by a jovial man who made us laugh at times. We were well taken care of. The food was delicious and all that for a reasonable price. The atmosphere in the restaurant was quite relaxed. Everyone was enjoying their food! A great place to dine!

This restaurant touts itself as authentic. Even so, it's not good. It's not bad, either. This place is a perfect example of the fact that authentic cuisine doesn't always translate to good. Having lived in Mexico for a short time, I learned that just like everywhere else, not all cooks/chefs can cook well. I was a little puzzled by a... More
