Best mexican food in utah!!!!

Went for dinner with my husband and I think I'll have a constant craving for their ceviche and carne asada tacos! The Salsa bar is awesome. Everything was super fresh and the restaurant seemed very clean. I would have rated it higher but the waitresses ( we had 2 different ones) seemed cranky and... read more

We love to come here, either after soccer for a quick bite, or to the Cantina for a grown up night out. While serving drinks with great food should not be such a novel concept- it is in Midway. They nailed it! The food is always good, service is always friendly and the salsa bar does not disappoint. You can... More

Brought family here during a vacation to Midway. The food was not good and the service was worse. Chicken enchiladas were tough and sauce was average. Don't bother eating here!!! You can find a lot of better places right down the road in Heber.

The food was the worst Mexican food I have ever order. My bowl of chili Verde was all meat no green Chile no sauce. The salsa bar was good and so we're the tortilla. Very disappointed in all will not return or recommend.

Tarahumara is not only Heber Valley's best Mexican restaurant but one of the state's best. It offers authentic Mexican, not Tex-Mex. Very good tamales, enchiladas, tacos, burritos, fajitas, mole poblano and more. A very good salsa bar, with both hot and fruity varieties. My wife loved the chicken (pollo asado) tacos, and really liked being able to get a salad... More

This place is a local favorite and is always busy. That is one of the signs of how good it is. They have a great salsa bar- I LOVE the mango salsa! You can sit on the cantina side (over 18, and live music in Fridays) or the dining room (for families). In warmer weather they also have outside seating.... More

We ate at Tarahumara after a Friday evening ride on the Heber Valley Railroad. I do not like typical heavy Tex Mex stuff that many "mexican" restaurants try to pass off as authentic and this place offers the exact opposite. The food was fresh and clean. My husband's pork chile verde was excellent and I like that I could get... More

We always look forward to Tarahumara. The salsa bar is outstanding and the steak fajitas are the best around.

After moving from Texas to Utah, I've been looking for a really great Mexican restaurant, and so far Tarahumara is the best I've found! Fantastic flavor in all their food -- great carne asada and the pork chili verde burrito is delicious. We also really loved the citrusy shrimp tacos and the huge variety of salsas. Even my kids loved... More

Midway is a long drive from Sandy, but friends wanted us to try Tarahumara Mexican Restaurant. The place has an authentic atmosphere, and the onsite bakery was an added bonus. Located right at you enter, the displays of fresh-baked goods are awfully tempting. IN fact, we spotted a tres leches cake that we just had to try later. Service was... More
