We were staying at the Homestead and had Taraumara recommended to us. Great food, reasonable prices. What stood out most was the prompt service and incredible salsa bar. You're going to love this place.

Me and my husband visited during an overnighter on a busy Cinco de Mayo night. Food and mixed drinks were reasonably priced, and we liked trying different salsas at the salsa bar. We will be back!

This place is WAY too expensive for what you get. Actually the prices are ridiculous. $60 for a couple of salads and an appetizer. We didn't even get drinks or dessert. Place was dirty, as were all the cups by the warm water machine. We had to use the paper cups so it felt safe to get a drink. The... More

Thank you your feedback! We wish we had a "warm water machine" but we do not, so you must be mistaken us for another restaurant. Also, your descriptions like, "a sock filled with sand dry" is the same thing you wrote in a different post. It's obvious that you LOVE us (LOL) and are trying to set us up for... More

Wait, one of the best Mexican restaurants in Utah is in Midway? Yes it is! After a long day of fishing the Middle Provo, treat yourself to a paloma and tasty ceviche in the cantina. The salsa bar is absolutely amazing as well. The service may be a little slow but you're in beautiful Midway, enjoy yourself. Whatever you do,... More

Seriously, since finding this place a few years ago, Tarahumara shines as my go-to place to eat whenever we are visiting the area. Fish tacos are amazing, the salsa bar is unique and full of intriqueing new taste experiences. Honestly, I haven't had a dish here I didn't love.

The prices at this restaurant were very reasonable. The food was ok. You order at a counter and then sit down where they bring it to you. They have a salsa bar.

Thank you for coming in... and for your review! We are trying to be more clear about our "Table Service" vs our "Counter Service" but some folks still get confused.

One day (Midday), we stopped for lunch. The food was great and the service was terrible. They charged us the dinner menu price. The next time we went there we hesitated because of the service, but decided to chance it. Service was great, but the food was way smaller than the previous time...guess it depends on the day...LOL.

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.

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 ;)
