The service was prompt and friendly all throughout the visit. The atmosphere is quaint, and cozy. Nothing fancy to knock your socks off, but very comfortably like being at your aunty's home. The food was well portioned and simply delicious. We will certainly be returning. A good, simple menu with something for everyone. Many options for various diets (GF/etc)

We were greeted by a very engaging hostess/manager/owner who talked with her customers and made us feel that she was, indeed, very glad to meet us! My husband and I had beef fajitas that were perfectly marinated and tender. We each had two of their wine margaritas which were delicious! We also followed the advise of our hostess, a self-avowed...

I had the special shrimp dish cooked with Poblano peppers, and my husband had flautas. We would rate them both "5" out of 5, for flavor and presentation.

As others have said the mole enchilada is the best. I tend to be a mole snob and haven't found a place that screams for me to come back for my mole fix. I found it! The specials were pork fajitas and shrimp and salmon tacos - both were top rate (as well as the shrimp enchilada). The tomatillo sauce... More

First trip to Mucho Gusto and this place lives up to its name in Spanish meaning "great taste"! Had their mole enchilada...and it was decadent. Followed up with their flan for dessert.....nothing but a total masterpiece. If you are a local and you don't know about this place it will become an easy repeat experience. And I did not even...

This little semi-hidden gem is a favorite of locals. They serve primarily New Mexican food with a few European and American fish and beef favorites as well. The New Mexican food also has a touch of Old Mexico as well. We had excellent enchiladas and shrimp tacos. The desert flan was also top drawer but the margarita pie had a... More

We stayed at a hotel walking distance from this restaurant and got takeout which we brought back to our room. The Suiza Enchiladas and guacamole appetizer were awesome; I definitely would return and order the same exact thing. The service was so memorable though...such sweet people that went above and beyond for my family. Can't wait to come back!

Great if you just want some inexpensive but good mexican fare, not so good if you want some atmosphere.
