The food at Tarahumara's is a cut above the normal mexican/tex-mex fare. While they have the usual burritos, enchiladas, & tacos, they have pork chops, mexican beef stew, shrimp, etc. Food is very good and the service was efficient and friendly.

We eat here often when we come to Norman. We have never been disappointed by the outstanding Mexican food. We had the mixed fajitas and the beef melts in your mouth. The service is wonderful. Be prepared! This place is always busy.
