We've been to this place before when you ordered the food at the front counter and then they brought it to you. This time they sat us down and we ordered at the table. The server spoke broken English but we managed to communicate OK. My wife got the Papaya Quesadilla and I got my usual, the Chiles Rellenos. The... More

The Patron Margarita was amazing and only $7!!! So I had 2. The fajitas had great flavor as did the carne tacos and we loved the salsa bar.

Wow... what a night. We wanted to have a nice family dinner, my sister and I even drove up from out of town. BIG MISTAKE GOING HERE!! I'm not exaggerating when I say this but we waited 45 minutes for our first round of drinks and hadn't even seen our waitress to put our food order in. We had to... More

Hello Brook! It's a bummer that you felt that way. According to other customers near you, you ordered at the same time as they did and they got their order at the same you did. They also complemented Andrew (the owner!) on trying to help you and your family... handling you in particular because of your aggression. You mentioned that... More

Brought my sister here for lunch. She had the burritos and I had the chili rellenos with salad. Chips were included with all the salsa you want & it was amazing!

I reviewed this restaurant about 5 years ago, but it has changed ownership so we wanted to see if there is any difference. We are locals so this is a place we are very familiar with. This is still a great Mexican restaurant. Food is excellent and the staff is very friendly. Its fairly authentic too. You order your food... More

Food was served cold and after warming flavors mediocre. Beware that their online menu pricing is inaccurately low. This used to be a consistently good restaurant with a great menu, however, inconsistencies in service, attitude and food quality have convinced me to find another Mexican restaurant to spend my dollar.

Hello! Thank you for bringing in such a large party of 12! We appreciate that very much, however, during Ice Castles, we get dozens of VERY LARGE parties (walkins with 10, 12, 18, 24 people!) and we are VERY PROUD to say that 90% of the time, we accommodate them without reservations. These large, unscheduled parties do create some chaos... More

We went to this restaurant for the first time based on recommendations and the food was good along with the salsa bar. Getting in is quite confusing as it states that you order and pay for your food first, which we were planning on, but then instead we were seated with table service- and that's the reason for 4 stars....

Hi Melissa! We apologize about the confusion. We haven't had a chance to update our signage re: counter service vs table service. We did put up a new sign near the front entrance that says "Table Service - Thurs, Fri, & Sat - 5pm til Close" and we do try to explain it to everyone when they enter. Sometimes we... More

After being told for 5 years to eat here....we finally did! The salsa bar alone makes eating here worthwhile!!! Dining with kids...you order at the counter off of their large menu, then they bring the food to you....you get a basket of chips (refills too) and you hit the salsa bar.

This is one of the better Mexican restaurants in Utah. The Carne Asada here is possibly the best I've had in my life. Order the Carne Asada tacos. The service at the restaurant is terrible.

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 ;)
