You know the food is good because the locals eat there! They are unique because they have a family dining area, cantina and a bakery. The family dining area is a walk up and order counter, the food is then delivered to your table. There is an all you can eat salsa bar with amazing mango salsa! The cantina is... More

For an out of the way Mexican restaurant this place is great. Very attentive service, and very fresh food. A huge salsa bar with a lot of fixings. My carnitas tacos were sooo juicy and tasty! 3 couples and no negative issues. Nikole our server even got me a bucket of ice for my 24oz beer, she was very nice... More

We live in Utah County. We love the drive to Midway for our family dinners. Our favorite is the salsa bar and the friendly service.

Thanks for coming in and sharing your experience with so many of our great followers! Aren't our FREE salsa bars amazing? We love filling them and watching the happiness of our customers as they taste them and learn which ones they love (and which ones are wicked hot... LOL).

I and a group of friends recently celebrated a work related event at the Tarhumara Mexican Restaurant in Midway. Seriously the Chimichanga was one of the best I had ever had. Side of Super Supreme Nachos and cold beverage and your evening will just keep getting better and better

We've been here multiple times, and regardless of the day or time, our meals are always delicious. The salsa bar is filed with choices from heat to fruit to creamy, just follow the identifiers marking each. We do miss the table service, standing in line to order is not fun. And the place is always cold, regardless of season. However,... More

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

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.

Great Food most items are made from scratch. The service people & the local patrons all very friendly & helpful. They have a large variety of salsas to choose from & homemade tri-colored chips, which they serve free.

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 ;)
