This restaurant is consistent with great food. The service is fast and friendly. However, sometimes there is a long wait to be seated because they are very popular. One improvement I would like to see them do is to give one cheese sauce and salsa per person instead of making us share.

This is more authentic Mexican than most of the TexMex we get around here. The food is always amazing, the staff is always extremely friendly & helpful and the value for the dollar spent is excellent. My only complaint is that they are so popular you usually have to wait - but it's never very long. Definitely worth a try!

In a city that caters to student tastes it's nice to find perfectly competent Mexican food served in an attractive atmosphere. The location is no big deal, of course, but everything else is a big plus.

Very pricey for tex-mex. Good food with great variety. Very busy atmosphere, not a relaxing evening.

We lived in a border town for several years and experienced great Mexican restaurants. Tarahumara is the real deal. Great food. Plus the service is excellent. Priced right.

This is the best Mexican food in the area. I've been there several times with large groups, and everyone walks away satisfied and planning a return trip!

We ate lunch here on Labor Day. We like to drive to Norman and eat here. The food is very good and flavorful. My wife had the cheese enchilada lunch and I had the Carnitas lunch. I am generally looking for Carnitas in a Mecican Restaurant. These were very good. I would prefer a little bit fewer fried onions and... More

The waitstaff are so friendly, the atmosphere like a big family get together, and the food is delicious! My favorite is the avocado enchiladas...

Service is prompt and the food is excellent. I eat here at least a couple of times a month and am never disappointed.
