I have been here a few times. Every time I fill up on chips, salsa, and queso first. The food is so good, and there is plenty.

you cant go wrong at Tarahumara's - I recommend the fajitas or the chimichanga - order an adult beverage and enjoy the frosted glass with fresh lime on the rim

There is some amazing food to be had here! It is a very loud crowded atmosphere so do the come here if you are needing to talk but the food and service are fantastic.

Always excellent food, even take out, excellent service and very quick. We have never been disappointed. Even if there is a wait, your table is ready quicker than they promised.

Visited on 24 March, 2017. Good food, especially the tamales and taco. The service was outstanding. We asked our waiter for special hot sauce and he brought us two additional varieties of higher spice hot sauce that were very good. We definitely recommend this place and it will be worth the wait. The service, again, was outstanding!

If we want Mexican food this is the place we want to go. The place is busy but they get you in and out quick. Never had anything I didn't like. The staff is amazing you chips and salsa never run out and your class is always full. Wish there was one in my town.

Went there on a Sunday 20 minutes after they opened and the place was hopping! I had the Chile Relleno lunch special and it got there in about 5 minutes. It wasn't very spicy, but very good flavor. Everything was delicious. I'll go back for sure!

We found this local gem on a lunch break for a conference we were attending in Norman. The food and the service were amazing!! We did have a wait but once we got in they immediately brought warm tortillas, cheese dip, chips and salsa to our table. Our waiter was friendly and efficient even with as busy as they were... More

We visited here on a Tuesday night with friends from out of town. We've been coming here for many years, but mostly on a Saturday or Sunday night. This week night visit was especially good. We were seated right away. The service was very fast. Our drink order was taken right away, followed closely by the delivery of the table... More

Service and food are ALWAYS outstanding! Best margaritas in Norman. Never a long wait for a table or food. Literally in and out if you are on a time crunch.
