Ate here our first night in town. Close to where we were staying, we wanted something easy to get to. The menu had a nice assortment for everyone I was traveling with. I had the enchiladas smothered in green sauce. It was just right! Not too spicy...just enough heat for this Wisconsin girl!

This small strip style restaurant was right behind the Inn on the Alemada where we were staying. We didn't want to go far our final night so we tried it. Most pleased with service and the food. Is is a simply decorated, small place, but the unique flavors of the entree made "another night" of southwest cuisine acceptable. We were... More

We had a pork tenderloin and mushroom burrito with verde salsa, rice and beans and guacamole which was one of the dinner specials. This was a great value. You can only order beer and wine here, no liquor, so no Margharitas. Not a problem for me. Very attentive and personable staff. Delicious.

My cheese enchiladas were great, because they used jack cheese- yum! His combo fajitas were good too, with one exception that kept us from giving them 5 stars. They use sirloin for their beef fajitas. He said if he'd wanted a sirloin steak, he would have ordered one. But beef fajitas are supposed to be tender, marinated skirt steak. Other... More

Enjoyed this restaurant quite a bit. Food was fresh and wholesome. Wine list more than adequate and service very good. It's in an odd spot hidden behind some stores at the back of their parking lot so it must be good to survive.

It's Mexican food and it's pricey. Good spot for a quick lunch but nothing special. The major plus is the ingredients are fresh. I could definitely tell that ingredients were much fresher than most Mexican fare.

Tucked away in the back of a car-park, this one is a short walk from the Plaza central, and is well worth a visit. It's very inexpensive and has room for children, with lots of parking outside if you need it. This is the REAL deal.

We arrived into town late afternoon and found this great spot across from the Drury Plaza. Mucho Gusto offered great tasting food and a very friendly environment. Recommend it highly.

We were looking for a decent restaurant near our hotel, since it was raining. We tried the Mucho Gusto and enjoyed it very much. Service was very friendly and the food was quite good and reasonably priced--definitely better than the Tex-Mex style we are more used to back East. It is off the beaten path, not a place one would... More

Within easy walking distance of hotel. I like to look for restaurants that don't cater to tourists. This one had a lot of local people eating dinner. Get there before 6pm, if you don't have a reservation. The Guac dip appetizer with chips and salsa is a must! My teen age son and I devoured the "Bomb," stuffed chicken breast.... More
