We have always been a fan... but new ownership has changed it

We have been going to Tarah. for the last 8 years, the family friendly atmosphere was awesome and we were always greeted by the owners by name. The ownership has changed and all of the most familiar friendly faces are gone and now are replaced by teenage fast food workers. You have to stand in a... read more

Have been going here for years. Mex food was overall usually good but not great. Numerous people have recently committed that food has slipped a little. Basic chicken and beef tacos are just so so. Not the greatest Margarita. Has a great little sports bar in the restaurant. But new owner really needs to make an overall improvement in the... More

I rated these guys "Excellent" last year and man, what a difference a year makes. It's as if there is new ownership or something. Seats were "taped" together, not sure there was an open table that had been wiped down, the outdoor patio flooring likely hadn't been squirted down all summer. To top it off, we saw what we assumed... More

When Tarahumara first opened is was wonderful!! Fresh, fun, great food, generous portions, and friendly staff. Two years ago it was still good, but in June of 2015 it was not worth the wait, the frustration with service, the lack of quality in the food, and the unpleasant patio seating. Guacamole was good, but the Caviche was NASTY and didn't... More

This is a very good Mexican Restaurant. Probably one of the more authentic in all of Utah. Excellent!

Stopped here while passing through the area and next time will just pass it by. You order your food up front and the only service you get is when they bring the food to your table. Salsa bar looks impressive, but as with the food I really did not enjoy the flavors. I am also guessing the chips came from... More

The food and service are amazing. I have been here year after year and it never disappoints. I drive 40 minutes just for dinner!

After reminding the waiter we finally got our cokes, never got a refill and had to get our own ice! That was the start and downhill from there. More than 40 minutes to get a chili relleno and chile verde. Food was good but the chips were the worst we have ever had, matching the service. There was a manager... More

Thought I would give the restaurant a second chance as take out. I called and tried to place the order over the phone. They couldn't understand me and hung up on me twice before someone got my order and correct. They told me it would be 30-40 minutes. I went to pick it up and had to wait an additional... More

I have been a fan of Tarahumara for years and have always spoken highly of it to all my friends, family, coworkers and really anyone who would listen. It has long been my go to place. My most recent visit however did not come close to meeting expectations. After we sat at our table I observed an interaction between two... More
