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

Hi Roxanne! Thank you so much for coming in and for taking the time to review us. We are in a small town and our customers count on us to provide a great experience, so we are thrilled that we delivered that to you. I love the honey chipotle too, but I'm dreaming of cilantro cream ;) Please come back... 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

Hi 2UtahTravelers! Thank you for coming in and for noticing that we are doing our very best to bring the restaurant back up to the quality of the original owners (they were wonderfully authentic!). It's taking us some time to improve everything back to where it once was, but hearing from people like you encourages us to keep on keeping... 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

Hello and Thank You for Coming! Aren't the leaves and views amazing in our beautiful Heber Valley? I really appreciate the fact that you understood the difference between our service levels in the Cantina side vs. the Counter Service side. I hope you liked our FRESH made chips because we are now making them fresh daily (all day long!). Oh...... More

Hello and thank you for coming to Tarahumara Midway! We know the food took awhile to come out this weekend and we appreciate your patience. We decided to make our chips fresh again, like the original owners did (no more buying them from a supplier). That cost us some kitchen time, but the reviews were worth it!!! Again, thanks for...

Ordered two beers (1. to pair with appetizers, and 2. to pair with the main course). Received only one beer. Even after reminding them TWICE, the 2nd beer was brought out when we were getting ready to leave. No apology. Just, "Well, we are the only two servers here." The place was dead slow (please see the pics). No service.... More

Hi Jamie, We are truly sorry that you did not have a good experience. It hurts to hear that since we are in such a small town and most of our employees try very hard to make sure all of our customers have a great experience. It sounds like someone on our staff was having a very bad day, but... More

The last 3 times I've been here the service has been terrible - they don't listen to your order and then, when it comes out wrong, act like it's your fault. When my sisters order came out wrong, the waitress literally grabbed the plate off the table in a huff and said, "ugh, seriously?!". It was pretty awful and we... More

It was a good meal. Gathered with friends and co-workers. It was a nice atmosphere,we were all able to talk and enjoy each other's company. A nice casual atmosphere to meet with friends.

I loved the food and especially the salsa bar! The margaritas are too sweet - but I asked for the second one without the agave and it was much better!

Robin B, Owner at Tarahumara Mexican Restaurant, responded to this review

Hi Joanna! Thank you for coming in and enjoying our food, salsa and drinks! I like your tip on "no agave" because sometimes the margaritas are too sweet for me too. I'm going to train our servers to ask our patrons if they would like their margaritas sweet or unsweet, thanks to your recommendation. Please come back and see us... More

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 ;)
