This is much like most Mexican restaurants. Decor, menu, food quality all good. Prices reasonable, portions large. Service is very good. Have eaten here several times and it is consistently good. Staff is courteous and attentive.

Every year I get at least one meal from this restaurant and every year I have the same response. Tasteless! This is the bland food, no spark, nothing to want you to take the next bite. I am assuming they have the same cook all this time so nothing changes. I will try again next year just to see if... More

Our party of six arrived to a packed restaurant on Sunday afternoon for lunch. We waited in line for seating. Hostess was very accommodating, and put two tables together for us. Servers were courteous but a bit slow, the place was crowded. Good food at reasonable price. This is a favorite of ours in the High Country.

For the past few years, when in the Jonas Ridge area, we would always be sure to eat here. Always a good experience until the last time. We went mid-day and only a few tables were occupied. The server & cook seemed to be the only ones working at the time. The server seemed annoyed when customers asked for refills,... More

We hit this restaurant on our way to an inn - running much later than we thought. The top three places on our list were closed and we happened upon Los Arcoiris and received a treat! Exceptionally clean, great service, and the food was fresh and delicious. I had pork enchiladas that were superb! Would definitely come back!

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...
