We were visiting here from Northern California and saw that this was the #2 rated restaurant in Midway. Locals in Heber also told us this was a great place to eat. I have to tell you that this is not even close to great Mexican food. The environment is nice and the salsa bar was great but the food itself... More

We are sorry you had a less than perfect experience. We are a local restaurant that is rated #2 because we do a GREAT job 99% of the time. Our locals love us and they are important to us and vice versa. Same with tourists! No one's perfect but we sure try!!! Most of our customers that come from California,... More

I've eaten at this restaurant a number of sides on both sides of the place and have enjoyed the food and staff. When hubby wanted to take me out I suggested we go there.

This place has very good Mexican food in an unlikely location. Most items were very good. I enjoyed the Chlli Relleno. Rice beans and other items are very good and there is a nice dessert menu. The fish tacos were not that good. The fish was heavily breaded and deep fried. As the special it was less than expected.

Amazing Mexican! Got the chicken fajita and it was delicious and a hearty portion. Also they have a salsa bar with at least 36 kinds of salsa that you can try! Obviously there are bottomless fresh made tortilla chips so you have the chance to try all the salsa you want. Fell in love with the honey chipotle salsa, it... More

The original owners, who made it the best restaurant around, sold the restaurant. The people who bought it did not keep up the high standards set by the original owners. The food quality and service went way down. It was recently sold again and the food and service have greatly improved. It is almost back to the original fantastic food... More

We were out for a drive and stopped for a late lunch. We were pleasantly surprised at the variety of dishes offered and the food was very good. They also have a panaderia (bread store) with Mexican bread and treats. Cold beer and margaritas available.

The Tarahumara Restaurant was unique in ordering and in the dining environment. When my group arrived for their first visit, we thought it was too crowded to stay. There was a line for ordering which was very long, but we noticed others who appeared to be regulars not concerned about the line. The line moved fast and we were seated... More

Four of us stopped in after a drive through the Midway/Heber/Park City Fall colors. We were welcomed to the Grill/Bar section because waiters/waitresses will come to your table. The other side of the cafe is "order at the counter and be seated." Our server was most helpful and pleasant. We had standard Margaritas, plenty of fresh chips and a variety... More

Description
Tarahumara Restaurant is an authentic Mexican restaurant that serves fresh food daily. We provide outdoor (seasonal) or indoor seating for our restaurant, cantina and bakery.

Our restaurant has counter service in our restaurant and bakery, and a full wait staff in our Cantina.

Face painting is free for children every Tuesday, and kids are always welcome to draw and have fun! We put lots of crayons on every table in authentic Mexican food cans for the children to use (Please don't confuse these cans for food! They are only decorations that we purchased as a creative way to hold the crayons. Someone actually accused us that they weren't decorations, but we like them and so do our regulars so we're keeping them!).

Our adults-only Cantina offers a full bar as well as a full-menu. We also offer live music in our Cantina, Friday through Sunday.

Come see us for great food, fun, and maybe even a little dancing ;)
