It looks like the area specializes in breakfast. But this place will be a two-in-a-row...unheard of. Quality,quantity and variety. Lots of Latin influence (probably a dozen breakfast menu items). Nice selection of omelettes and bennies plus waffles, pancakes (etc) -- including German and dutch pancakes. Yum. just yum.

Their menu is HUGE! You'll spend an hour deciding what you feel like eating! The food was all amazing. Country skillet had some awesome sausage and the Biscuits and gravy wasn't too bad. Had an unexpected taste to them though. The pancakes were sweet and delicious. The chorizo skillet was spicy and very good. Bacon was cooked nice and crispy and our waitress was so nice/funny. When paying for the bill, I decided I wanted to take some carrot cake home that was in the display case staring at me. When I asked the lady at the register if I could have a piece, she gave me a giant piece for FREE! They are all extremely nice and welcoming here.

Highly reccomended if you're in the area.

My family decided to visit me at work for lunch, my kids wanted pancakes. Where do you find pancakes at 1 pm? Rainbow restaurant! Felt like home when we were there.

This restaurant pretty much has it all! Breakfast anytime - specials, quick food delivery once you finally decide what to get, large portions, great for carry out too!
Always packed yet the wait is never more than 10 minutes. Food is fresh and tasty and can bring you back to the feeling of a family diner. Many regular customers. Don't be "turned off" thinking this is a place for only the older crowd. It's a restaurant that's great for everyone. Perfect for late night meals too. Weekends open until midnight. I can't tell you the number of times we've pulled in at 11:30 for waffles and ice cream!
