What can I say, you get huge portions of food for such a good price. Can't go wrong when you go to the Raimbow. The eggs benny is the best I've ever had. Have you seen the pemeal on that thing? They're more like pork chops! Definitely will be visiting again soon! Thanks guys for the awesome meal and awesome... More

Searched the city for a mom&pop restaurant. Finally came across this hidden gem and all I can say is WOW. Food was mouth watering, portioned out for a king and the old school style of a diner. I rate this needle in a hay stack a 9.8 of 10. It's a must try
