Best Mexican food in Norman if not the state. If I could give this place 6 stars I would. The food is outstanding and the service is fast and professional. This is an owner ran hands on business, It's very common to see him bussing tables or doing whatever job is needed even though he has plenty of staff. His... More

Expect a small wait during peak hours. The quick service gets you in quick. I've been here dozens of times and never had a bad meal. The green hot sauce is something great to try. Excellent place to bring small kids.

Best Mexican food in Norman. Authentic and tasty. It's off the normal "it" roads around campus but you won't be sorry you made the trip.

I have been to countless Mexican restaurants across the southwest and this is by far the best one I have ever been to. The service was unbelievable...we were seated very fast, treated exceptionally well, and never even had to wait. This is the first time I remember in a very long time not constantly being out of water at any... More

We visit Tarahumara's frequently for family dinners. I enjoy the complimentary chips, salsa, queso, and tortillas. I like to try different options and this time it was a cheese enchilada. While there is not much that can be altered on a cheese enchilada, it was very tasty. We always have good service and while the waitstaff do move at a... More

We recently moved to Norman, so we decided to try this place on the advice of one of my husband's co-workers. We were not disappointed! We ordered a fajita platter for two with beef, chicken and shrimp, and it was very tender and flavorful. The only part of the meal I didn't care for was the queso. It was too... More
