Tarahumara's has a wide variety of Mexican dishes to choose from. The quality of each dish is very good, and the service is spot on. They have a nice selection of Mexican beers and a full service bar. This is definitley a good place to go if you are in the mood for Mexican food.

You can tell from the people waiting outside that the place is good :) Very clean inside and staff is on their toes constantly bringing you more chips, salsa, queso, drinks....amazing attention to the details. If you like hot stuff, ask for their "Green Sauce", amazing! Being that nearly table is filled, it can be a little noisy so be... More

This is a popular restaurant and you will probably have to wait to be seated. Due to ongoing renovations we felt like we were in a construction zone but that is, I hope, a temporary situation. Service is amazingly fast once you are seated and the chips, dip, and food is worth a short wait you endure for a table.... More

Tarahumara's has the best-in-town Mexican food in Norman. I look for leaner options on the Menu and there are plenty here to satisfy. The plates are hot and so is their fresh pico (spicy hot)! It is always busy here, so expect a little wait at the most popular times. You have a lot of great items on the lunch... More

The food is some of the best Mexican food I've had. I LOVE the fajitas! Their service is always excellent. You can't go wrong here.

It doesn't matter what time of day you go eat, you are so rushed that you can't eat a chip before it's time to order ..then they are ready to give you tour check before you can eat. It's all about quantity of people they can serve. The quality of food has also slowly declined. The cheese won't be melted... More
