If you are a local then you already know Muchas Gracias but if you are visiting then you should give them a try. If you know good Mexican fast food then this is the place for you and if all you know is Taco Bell, you most certainly should give these guys a try and I guarantee you well never... More

The burritos are huge, taste amazing and are reasonably priced. This is somewhere between a real Mexican restaurant and fast food Mexican. Try the Carne Asada Burrito...real nice. The atmosphere is not exactly new or stylish, but that's not why you go to Muchas Gracias!

I love their burritos and go to different ones around town. Most of them are pretty consistent - the best part being you can pretty much specify whatever you want in the burrito and no problems.

Muchas Gracias is a step above other fast food Mexican outlets, such as Taco Bell or Del Taco. The food is so much more authentic. The restaurant I visit is clean and the wait staff is friendly and efficient. One thing I find amusing is their system for transmitting orders: they yell back to the kitchen before submitting a written... More

My feelings are ambivalent towards them. They're not bad but not noteworthy either. They serve large portions, but ingredient quality is marginal. I think, in the future, if I get a hankerin' for this kind of place, I'll saddle my horse and ride to Aibierto's on Market street, which has similar prices and has superior food.

This chain is to Salem OR what the Doner Kebab is to Brits- Late night food to soak up the alcohol when you are long past caring about your diet. For what they do, inexpensive Mexican food, they're the best. They make great guacamole, rolled tacos, and their beans and rice are great too. They also now have churros on... More

We stopped in Muchas Gracias in our way to Seattle. It has a very good service and selection of food. I finally found a place that make a good "torta" (carnita). My only recommendation if that it need a better sign, it took me several minutes to find the place.

I visit more than one Muchas Gracias restaurant. They offer consistently good food and a great variety. The shrimp burrito is to die for, not to mention their tacos de carnitas.

Our family goes to Muchas Gracias every other day for their breakfast burrito's (sausage and egg/egg and chorizo), been and cheese burrito, and of course my Cherry Pepsi. Our family likes to order some of their dinner meals each week as well ,chicken enchiladas,tacos, and burrito's combination plates. They also make the best red hot sauce in town! We also... More
