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.

My sister took me here as a surprise and the food was delicious. It's simple, but they do a good job. Their margaritas are fantastic!! Worth checking out!

This is my second review of Tarahumara. I had been earlier in the year and had a great experience. We went around 4 p.m. and there was no wait. Service was quick, but you don't feel rushed. I wanted to order something different this time and got the Mexican Dinner this time. 2 tamales, 1 enchilada, rice beans and on... More

I first visited this restaurant after hearing one of my coworkers rave about the food. Upon my arrival I was greeted with a wait although it was 8pm. The food was poor at best. The chips were stale and the food came out entirely too fast and tasted as though it sat under a heat lamp for some time. I... More

My daughter goes to OU and has been telling us about this place. We ate there tonight and everything she told us was true. Honestly the best Mexican food I have ever had. Incredible and fast service. Highly recommend. Awesome.
