Great Mexican food, super atmosphere

We sat at the bar and enjoyed food and drink... very busy, lots of people being served and waiting. Great food!

Best part about it were the different salsas. Had special of the day avocados enchiladas. I wouldn't recommend them service passable

Unfortunately the new owner has decided to change what was a good thing! The last time we went the chicken fajitas had been pre-cooked??? How long does it take to stir fry a chx breast. We will give it one more chance and if hasn't changed we will no longer go there. This is basically a warning to the new... More

This was our first time at Tarahumara and we were not at all impressed. Service was almost non-existing. Our server Juan reviewed the menu with us and made suggestions and that was the last we saw of him. The kitchen staff delivered the meal (which is appreciated as it came out hot) but we had to get up and refill... More

Not sure what has happened but the service has gone from above average to horrible. It was so bad we left the restaurant before our food arrived (which was taking far to long). Our waitress basically scolded us for asking why the food was taking so long.

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. But I understand they changed owner and it was horrible. The service was poor and my food came out cold. Very disappointing. I won't be going back to pay those prices any more for that kind of food!

Not only does this restaurant have excellent carne asada, this is the best Mexican restaurant in Utah. I agree that the salsa bar is awesome, especially with a cold cerveza! A great place to dine after a day out of the SLC valley.

Tarahumara lies on the foothills of the mountains of Midway, an assuming Mexican restaurant that would be easy to overlook on a drive down Main Street. Don't do that. Do not overlook this spot. It boasts authentic Mexican food with the finest salsa bar in Utah. I had the lamb chop special, a flame grilled center cut with a mango... More

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 were not very attentive. But if... 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.
