Every time I go to Mt. View I always make a trip to the Rainbow Cafe. I was there this past Thursday night with my parents. I had the chicken fried steak. REAL cube steak...not mystery meat. It was served with real mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans and your choice of bread. The chicken fried steak was huge and fried... More

We asked the locals where to go for a light lunch and twice were referred to Rainbow Cafe. It is a down home local cafe. My hamburger was good. The mixed grill breakfast was unimpressive. Staff was friendly and attentive but it was just so-so

Great place for breakfast! Excellent corned beef hash and eggs! They always provide great service and eggs are always cooked to order. Quick refills on coffee and friendly people working there. Glad to be a local!

They serve a great lunch and even a better breakfast! If you are ever passing though our small little town and looking for some home style cooking, this is a must stop. When you set down at this place not only will the wait staff make you feel at home but so will all the locals that may be dining.... More

We eat there as a group every year. They are always very friendly in putting tables together for us. The town looks deserted outside when we come in January, but they always have a good business of the locals. The standard country cooking is good. They also have an all day breakfast menu. I had a chicken pasta with broccoli... More

Have eaten here a few times. ALWAYS try to stop if I'm in Mountain View. The roast beef is the BEST! Real mashed potatoes and gravy & green beans. My daughter had a grilled cheese she deemed FANTASTIC!

After a trip to Blanchard springs caverns, my family and I came to PJs for a late lunch. What drew us was a review that mentioned Elvis memorabilia, but now that we have eaten the food and experienced their service, we would come back anytime! Even though they were super busy with Black Friday buzz, they still seated our party... More
