For a mexican restaurant you expect authentic authentic. Not thinking that you would have been better going to a rival cheaper chain. This place needs to have some love injected back into it. Whilst it has always been incredibly noisy, people don't mind if they are getting great food. The quality of food has lowered since previous days so would... More

Booked for 6:15pm (11 people) last night. Packed like sardines at a table that was lit by 1 functioning candle so it was near impossible to read the menu (the 1 candle was passed around so we could we could view). Also the candle was an extreme hazard for children at our table. We are repeat customers to Mucho's so... More

Hmmm we LOVED the food from here but the last visit on the 8th Sept wasn't the same, the menu has changed and so has the taste of the food, bit disappointing.

Muchos has a fantastic location in The Junction and looks incredible inside. The place oozes Mexican and has a really cool buzz about it The restaurant design blows you away when you walk in and really creates an authentic feel... that you'd be hard pressed to find this anywhere else in Newcastle. In fact, everything looks so good that your... More

Over many years Muchos was the family's favourite eating place in Newcastle. Whenever our now adult children returned to Newcastle we'd always manage to get to Muchos. Meals were always tasty and a good size, service was good and the dim lighting, Mexican-themed background music and chatter gave the place a great atmosphere. When the family booked in last Thursday... More

V disappointed. We had a booking. Thursday night. Told we would have to wait as they had several "walk ins". We were there on time. 15 min later tried to squeeze us in to a table that extended into the walk way - meaning every time someone wanted in or out, we would have to stand up! We went somewhere...

Our kids love coming here - they love the kids burritos. Great combo $10.90 specials on Mondays and Wednesdays. Love the bottles of apple cider. Tables are packed in, but it's warm! Nice food. Nice space. We'll be back again!

Terrible service, terrible food. First, we weren't even seated inside the restaurant, but out the back in the shopping centre foyer! Old blankets hung over the office windows we were seated next to. All the clientele looked like they were usually of the McDonalds patronage, so probably thought this was a fine dining experience. I wasn't expecting fine dining, but... More

Have been coming here for many years and although I think it's lost a little atmosphere, I still enjoy it. The service last week was excellent, couldn't fault anything about it. They were extremely attentive, big thumbs up. The food is not as good as I remember it being but we all still like coming here. A little on the... More

Arrived for a 730 booking, was told that our table was not ready and to walk to the local pub to wait. Meals did not come out until 920, when asked if we could get two receipts for tax staff told us that it was impossible. Overall food was bland, wait staff were ordinary not overly friendly. Would not recommend.
