Best Mexican food!

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... read 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

I have been many times, and every time it hits the spot. From the margaritas to the salsa bar to the unique dishes, it all makes you wanting to come back for more. The service is quick and friendly, and the dual option of the bar side, and the counter side is nice. I will be coming back!

You'll find dishes at Tarahumara that you won't see on any other menu. Everything is freshly made and very tasty. The salsa bar contains at least 15 different salsas with flames to tell you just how hot they are (good thing!). Now they come to take your order at your table - a real plus! There is also a Cantina... More
