Surprisingly Unique and Delicious

Pauline was the server and she handled the whole room, providing everyone with just what they wanted. She asked the right questions and was available, but not hovering. We had the grilled Salmon, served with chunks of garlic on top- weird we thought.. Delicious we complimented! We also had the... read more

We've been to Santa Fe many times but had never heard of Mucho Gusto until one of the locals told us about it. It's kind of hidden and when we pulled up, we were not sure what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised by how clean and inviting it was the minute we walked in. We were told by the... More

If you are looking for a more local restaurant near the plaza, this is certainly the best option. The food is fresh, reasonably priced, and has great service staff.

Great, authentic food for good prices. All wait staff was very nice and accommodating. It's hidden in the back of the shopping center, so keep walking/looking off the road front. I hear the chicken bomb is delicious.

I know Disney uses this tagline but I believe the team at Mucho Gusto is giving them a run for their money. I have never met a group of friendlier people in my life. We have now been twice on our current trip. Food is terrific. Wait staff is out of this world. The previous reviewer had some issues; not... More

I ordered a small salad with salmon as well as a cup of soup. The salmon was cooked very nice but my salad was horrible due to lettuce that had obviously not been sorted and cleaned and there was only one slice of a radish, two small slices of carrot as one slice of cucumber..... Tortilla soup was just ok.

Really nice and quiet little place tucked away off the street. The staff were very helpful. The food was excellent and A LOT of it. If you don't want to have to take a box home / back to the hotel, you might try splitting a dish. I loved the mole enchiladas. Awesome!!

We went there with a group of five people, no reservations, around 5:15 and we were immediately seated. The drinks (I recommend their margarita specials) arrived within minutes of ordering, and the menu specials were the way to go for us! They were delicious, fresh and plentiful! The staff was incredibly polite, efficient, pleasant - they made us feel like... More

We arrived on a Friday night without reservations and were seated before the restaurant got crowded. Next time we will make a reservation, just to make sure. I had the best mole I have had in a long time. Definitely put this on your itinerary.

Great Mexican food in a very friendly, homey atmosphere. The desserts are to die for. My favorite is the rice pudding.
