We have eaten at the Rainbow Restaurant for as long as I can remember, as a teenager. They make you feel like friends & give a warm welcome on arrival. Their family cooked meals are great & affordable. They even have a senior menu Monday thru Friday, at reasonable prices. And, with their liberal servings, we have plenty left over... More

This family restaurant is a gem. It is popular for local residents and when I travel to see family in Elmhurst I always include a meal at this restaurant. MANY choices on the menu, large portions, yummy comfort food and family friendly prices keep bringing me back

Rainbow is an okay option for breakfast. It's a little dated on the inside, but the food is good and you get a lot for what you pay.

This is our favorite breakfast restaurant in Elmhurst. The food is fresh and fantastic, and the service is really good. I love their California omelet, and their skillets are really good as well.

Sunday morning breakfast was packed but the service never slipped and the food was great. I went with the chorizo frittata and was extremely happy with it. It did not look great but the flavor was next level and I will be going back the next time I'm in the neighborhood.

This place has great coffee for starters. Breakfast is my favorite meal at this place. I get the chooped steak and eggs with pancakes and hash browns. Food is served fast and hot, not a huge place, but they really pack them in. This place can be busy and still fast and friendly. Lots of greek dishes fill the menu.... More

Rainbow is one of our go to spots for reliably good breakfast or lunch. Waitresses are knowledgeable and friendly. Food is good diner food - better than average.

Description
local favorite, reviewed on yelp and others. If you google you will find several listings. Would love to review this as we eat here every time we visit Elmhurst, which is 1-2 times a year for 16 years. ALL the locals know Rainbow very well. Always busy.
