Don't let the outside fool you. It's a local hang out, good comfort food, lots of it too. Coffee was tasty and hot. Just right for hungry travelers. Oh, the prices were reasonable as well.cheers

Had breakfast here. They did a very good omelette. There are great photos on the walls off all the rodeo champs dating way back

We are here again on our way through to Arizona. The place was busy but we were helped and served promptly. I had the chicken again and my husband had a Reuben. Both were very good.

Definitely nothing fancy, and food served on paper plates and plastic utensils. Hopping during rodeo of course. The waitresses were hustling as fast as they could - but even so 40 min wait for order to come through. Very generous servings though, and good value.

Hi. To answer your question, yes they can. Kids can dine in the Rainbow anywhere past the pool tables until 4:30 PM. I hope this helps.
