Quick service!

If you're looking for a spot that gets you in and out quickly, this is the spot. We had 30 people with us and were only here for an hour. They served us in under 15 min and the good was great!

I had heard about this restaurant for several years, and finally experienced it today for lunch. Decor was bright and cheery and waiters provided excellent and friendly service. Food was fresh, and this place has one of the largest menu selections I have ever seen. Prices were comparable to other local Mexican restaurants. Restroom was very clean. My only complaint... More

Tarahumara's is a great place for Mexican style food. I have tried most of the menu items and like all of them. The service is great, and once you are seated, the delivery of food is fast. Be prepared for a wait when you get there. Somewhat higher than others, but worth the cost. Portions are large. I skip the... More

As many of the reviewers have mentioned this restaurant was very busy during lunch. Still got a seat very quickly and server was there immediately to take drink orders and bring chips and dip. Menu is extensive and sometimes confusing with so many choices. After hearing so much about this place I was disappointed with my lunch. Rice was dry,... More

If you think you've had good Mexican food, think again! At Tarahumara's, there's almost always a wait -- which is a GREAT sign! The wait is always worth it -- it's bright, cheery and delightful enjoying the patio and people outside until your buzzer lights up. Efrain Romero operates the most hospitable and efficient dining environment. Everyone is hustling to... More

No complaints. The food and service are great. One of my favorites. A little more expensive than the average Mexican food restaurant. The waitstaff is very attentive to your needs.

Came here for lunch with coworkers and the pace had a wait outside. Wow for lunch. We were seated pretty quick even though the place was packed. Service was great and our food came quick, very quick considering the amount of people there. Great tasting food. Ordered the burrito with fajita chicken which I recommend over the shredded chicken.
