Great food and a great owner who is very active in the day to day business. We've been going here since he opened and other than lots of people finding this gem, nothing has changed. Great food and outstanding service.

Try everything. We got the mixed fajitas for two and dare I say Amazing. Not to mention the service. I have dined in 5 star restaurants and not received this type of service. 5 stars from me.

This was our first visit to Tarahumara's but it certainly won't be our last! We were quickly seated, warmly greeted, received fast service, and served excellent food. Top notch from beginning to end and we can't wait to return!

We love this place. We fed 10 people- drinks too for not much over $100. They have great food and great service- and highest ratings from health department- we visit often- never disappointed.

Even when busy, the service here is fast and excellent. Food is very good and the restaurant always appears spotlessly clean. Portions are larger and prices are slightly higher than other Tex-Mex restaurants in the Oklahoma City Metro area. One cannot say they went away...More
