Looks are deceiving

Announcer: Arcoiris Mexican Restaurant looks like someone took a yellow highlighter to the building. Frankly, the boys were skeptical to give this place a try because from the outside, there isn't much appealing about the joint.  The parking lot has weeds; there are too many makeshift signs in the window,
