    This Cub doesn't offer many options, is never well-stocked- if sold out, item's not restocked for months. SLIM OVERPRICED PICKINS! I miss Rainbow's prices ($2-4 less than Cub) & abundance of variety..

    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.

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

    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...

    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.

    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.

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

    Shop at Cub instead. The produce is fresher.

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

    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.

    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

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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

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

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

    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!

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

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

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

    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!

    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.

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