You have to work to find Mucho Gusto. It's hidden away in a shopping center just off the Paseo de Peralta, an easy walk from downtown Santa Fe, and it's so worth the effort to locate. Mucho Gusto is so popular that they have expanded their space twice since opening in 2003. Their menu is modest; they don't try to... More

This was, by far, the best Meixcan food that we found in Santa Fe. Down to earth, unpretentious, great prices and absolutely great food. Highly recommend it

This was the worst food we had in Santa Fe. We are vegetarian and asked for vegetable fajitas,spicy. No problem we were told. What we got was a plate of bland, soggy vegetables with no spice at all. Very surprising given how busy it was despite its location.

Stopped in for lunch and order fajitas. They were excellent. the servcie was great and it was a nice, peaceful place for lunch. Parking by the restaurant is limited but usually you can find a spot. We enjoyed our meal very much.

We arrived at the end of a strip center to find a completely empty dining room. Despite our worries, all our meals were excellent and the dining room filled quickly. Great mole!

I first ate here in November, 2011 and posted a review on January 8, 2011. I loved it so much that it was the only place that I had planned to eat at twice during my recent July/August trip to New Mexico. Which I did - once to try something new and once to repeat my great meal from last... More
