So, I apologize for my absence over the last week! Joe Bob and I were moving into our house in Norman. We are so happy to be back! My family came to help us do some unpacking and shopping on Saturday and we stopped by one of our old favorites, Tarahumara’s Mexican Cafe. I am a huge fan of this place and Mexican food in general, Joe Bob on the other hand, after being forced by the military to live 3 miles from Mexico and then again in San Antonio, is not a fan of Mexican food. So, it is honestly a rare treat to get him to go with me. Either that or I have to sneak away with some girlfriends or my family to grab it! Why did I choose a partner in life that does not like Mexican food? I’m still trying to answer this question. I still love him though
This became one of our favorite places after eating there multiple times a week with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law while we were all in college. This is their favorite place to eat in Norman and every time they return, they are sure to stop in!
So there is almost always a wait at Tarahumara’s, but it is never long and is well worth it. The second you sit down, they bring you chips, salsa (slightly hot, so wait for your drink!), cheese sauce, and flour tortillas. It never fails, I forget to leave room in my tummy for my actual entree, but somehow squeeze the food in my belly.
I get the beef and cheese enchilada plate with a taco. Very simple, no frills Mexican food. Betsy, my little sister got the taco plate. It is just a beautiful sight! All of this comes out fast, with the best service around. Your drink, chips, salsa, cheese sauce, or tortillas will never run out. Your food will be out within ten minutes of ordering and the staff are very friendly and helpful. On top of all this, it is very affordable and you get a free sopapilla at the end! Who can argue with that! This is definitely one of my favorite places in Norman. Stop by and try it.
