Blogger Reviews of El Arco Iris Restaurant

  • Is It Any Good on Mar 24, 2015

    El Arco Iris, at least me, has both the classic dishes and Mexican-American fare that those of us who are not Mexican come to expect from Mexican-American menus. But since Mexican food is so much more than that, there is room for things that most Anglo-Americans have not tried.

  • ohlittlegirl reviewWe went there a couple of days ago and were very disappointed. The potatoes were greasy. The fish tasted not fresh. The salad was very simple. The service was friendly, but overall the place is pretty noisy and has a feeling of a metro station.

  • kweenldybug reviewArco Iris is the best mexican restaurant in Highland Park/Eagle Rock/Glassell Park ALL of the Northeast and East side of L.A. The food is delicious and the service is remarkable especially the waitress Alicia (an icon at Arco Iris)My family has dined at Arco Iris since 1977! Great family owned/operated atmosphere! You HAVE to try the Jessie's Extra Special wet burrito, although all the dishes are excellent.

  • vannaleeshop reviewWhat makes it special? It's family owned & run since forever.Excellent value, excellent authentic Mexican food, and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. I've been coming here for 30 years, and still love the consistently great food. Cop hangout. Guess THEY know a great place to eat, too! :D

  • Brett HickinbothamNice restaurant to go to on a chill night. Or take your family or something. Get fajitas and a margarita (too sweet) and kill like 4 bowls of chips. I dunno, it's fun.
