I really enjoy this restaurant. The great thing about Tarahumara's is their consistency. Their food is great, service is the best and their beers are always cold. if your looking for a great place to eat lunch or dinner this is the spot to get it. Worth the drive from OKC!

Not only is Tarahumara's the cleanest restaurant, you can also watch what is going on in the kitchen while you dine via closed circuit tv. The staff is very efficient and friendly. The food potions are generous and service is swift. Your condiments are always kept filled and you basically never have to ask for anything. The food is wonderful... More

I understand a lot of people like the idea of getting seated and having the food hit the table in less then 7 minutes then a bill for your meal arriving 22 minutes after you sit down to move you along, i do not. If i am taking the time to enjoy a sit down meal the idea of rushing... More

Very good find if you are traveling through Norman. Located about 10 minutes off of interstate but near the OU campus. It's a must anytime we are in the area.

I have eaten at this well known Norman establishment many times for lunch and twice for dinner. I have never received a substandard meal. The service is always good. The food while being the usual style of Okie-mex is cooked well and can be customized somewhat with no problems. The owner is very friendly and show concern for his diners.... More

Tarahumara's is no secret in the Norman area. I drive from Oklahoma City to eat there. Make a reservation especially on a weekend. Food is great and the homemade tamales are wonderful. Service is very fast, even when busy. Tables are close and it is pretty loud but you go for the food not a romantic evening. The spicy hotness... More

The food is always fresh, hot and tastes great. Worth waiting for when they are busy. The atmosphere is authentic with colorful surroundings, friendly waiters, and awesome cooks. They even have a camera so you can watch them while they prepare your meal.
