    Start with a small load if you've never used the self checkout before!

    I think people are too hard on this location. It's very conveniently located, the staff is friendly, great place to meet new people, and we all shop there once in a while!

    If you think this Rainbow Foods is sketchy you probably shouldn't have left your small town.

    Hey Lady with 30 some items! The self check out is for convenience!!!

    This place is sketchy!

    Don't come here hungry, you'll end up spending way too much money.

    Honestly, I like the place and there is a lot to choose from the people there are friendly unless your an all year grouch

    Take your items out of the basket if you have to wait for the person in front of you

    It's like Walmart people-watching, with a hipster twist.

    Don't go on a Monday morning.... The shelves are bare and it's un-fresh.

    Try all the food.

    Don't be too hard on Uptown Rainbow. I suggest getting the readymade pizzas near the deli over the frozen ones. Cut it in half (or quarters) and cook the other chunks another day!

    This grocery is pretty rank, but at least it's open twenty-four-hours.

    See how long you can hold your breath to avoid the stench of the unbathed while you pick up the items you forgot at whole foods.

    Really great salad bar! The deli is always really good and reasonably priced. Also, love the fresh meat and seafood too. Rainbow has made some really great changes in the last year.

    Never go to the bathroom here.

    There's usually hot eye candy walking around at any given time.

    The cashier lines are comparable to Valleyfair. So much fun!

    Practice your grocery store pick up lines ;)

    A great place to observe the human species while food-gathering on this place on earth--one of the more liberal districts in america. Hug

    Worst grocery store in the metro. Unfriendly, high prices, terrible produce.

    Allison Evans · October 15, 2011
  • Pat C.

    Sketchy, long lines no matter the time of day, expensive and yes, strange unbathed people hang out here! Only plus open 24 hours, but fire that I go to Kowalski, also 24 hours and much better quality

    Pat Christianson · August 22, 2011
  • Samantha H.

    If you want banana chips avoid the prepackaged ones. The bulk isle has them for much cheaper!

    Samantha Huntley · June 13, 2011
  • McKenna E.

    Hang on to your shopping cart. People like to move them to random parts of the store!

    McKenna Ewen · April 1, 2011
  • Emily A.

    Every time I come here I get so frustrated with the crappy quality, long lines, and high prices I ditch my cart and leave!

    Emily A · February 24, 2011

    Much better than Rainbow

    James Babbitt · August 15, 2014

    They seem to have stock issues with the transition to Cub. Also the prices are significantly higher than what Rainbow had. Might as well go to Lunds.

    Andrew · August 11, 2014
  • Amy S.

    Working out the kinks transitioning to Cub...higher prices, more pre-packaged produce, fewer choices.

    Amy Sullivan · July 19, 2014
  • Tricia P.

    Go to Lunds

    Tricia Peterson · July 18, 2014
  • Mike O.

    Probably the jankiest grocery store I've ever been to in terms of shady people hanging about. But I can't justify spending more for less at LUNDS. Uptown problems...

    Mike Obradovich · June 24, 2013
  • Donna L.

    Some parts of the store are very seedy, and the staff is inflexible & unhelpful. They need to keep their service center open later in case of bus emergencies.

    Donna Lang · May 17, 2013

    24hr rainbow

    Shop early -- avoid the rush!

    No items scanner. =(

    It can be hard to shop in the mornings as they don't get out and stock the produce and some shelves until after 9.

    Kevin Hamilton · September 5, 2012
  • Amanda B.

    This place is a mad-house Sunday afternoons! Whoa! Be ready to wait in line and skip the ice cream - it will melt.

    Amanda B. · July 29, 2012
  • Mike A.

    Shop at Cub instead. The produce is fresher.

    Mike Asleson · July 25, 2012
  • Melissa B.

    The little old cashier lady is such a bitch... Don't go to her line, she is unfriendly and rude!

    Melissa Berg · July 5, 2012

    Slowest cashiers ever.

    Reasy Breezy · March 12, 2012
  • Amy S.

    Careful when driving past the front of the store. There are posters blocking the window so you can't see who's looming out of the store to step into the crosswalk.

    Amy Sullivan · January 22, 2012
  • Frederick G.

    The tuna croissant sandwiches from the deli case are great! Only problem is that by the end of the night, they are usually gone. So I get roast beef, which are still pretty good.

    Frederick Gotfredson · January 21, 2012
  • Roisin G.

    Don't shop hungry when going on a trip for only 3 days...

    Roisin Guargena · January 3, 2012
  • Corryn V.

    Beware the delicious looking brownies that are always strategically placed right inside the entrance!
