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 ;)

Midway Tarahumara use to be my families favorite restaurant in town but since the ownership changed hands this place has really sailed downhill. Bakery- gone. half the salsa bar-gone. and the food is not nearly as good. Not to mention the owners (the male) is incredibly rude and lacks an immense amount of hospitality. We now support the Park City Tarahumara (frequently). 30 minute drive (rather than 5) is well worth it!

If I could give a negative star I would. We came in with a large party, after doing the Dirty Dash race. We had 2 tables which was fine. After 20 min or so, NO ONE had been to our table, so I went and got water for the 3 small children. After 30+ min we FINALLY got our orders taken, still no water or chips at the table. Long story short, the food took almost an hour to come, only half of us got food, even after asking SEVERAL times. Only half of us got our drinks, after asking SEVERAL times! We finally left after over 2 hours with half of our party going without their food or drink. We we paid for what we did receive but we're NEVER apologized to or offered any type of discount. I'm not sure if they have no management but will NEVER go again. SO NOT OK!! Also, the food has gone WAY downhill!!!!!!

We ate at Tarahumara for lunch on a Friday. We were seated at an outdoor table out front and were told we would have table service. The restaurant did not seem very busy, but the service was extremely slow. The entire experience took two hours from start to finish. We sat with empty glasses for far too long without any refills. When our food finally came, it tasted good, but was lukewarm. My guacamole had started to darken from sitting out for so long. We had to track down our server at the end of our meal to pay our check. If this had been our first time at the restaurant, we would never be back.

Great food and nice selection of over a dozen different salsas to try. The cantina has live music on the weekends and I haven’t heard a poor performer yet.
