“We really wanted to like...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2008

We really wanted to like this place. It was pretty good. Margaritas were sufficient. But, when we got the bill we realized we could have ordered the exact same thing for about half the price elsewhere. Try Don Cuco if you are in the area, or if you can make the drive, go to Los Toros.

“A well kept secret on the edge of Burbank”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2006

Look carefully at the structure and you can sort of see the parts that used to be a JAck in the Box drive through many years ago.

Later it was an Italian place but it finally settled about 20 years ago on being MUCHO MAS - a friendly, noisy, busy neighborhood Mexican restaurant with it's own particular attitude.

Prices are good for combinations-this is a place for good ole California Mexican Faire-enchiladas, fancy burritos, carnitas and tacos.

Standout dishes are Chili colorado-served several ways-burrito, dinner, tostada-the sauce is rich and pungeant-the meat is tender and has virtually no fat, wrapped in a hot corn tortilla-few things are better.

GAllina in Salsa Verde is a rich buttery and sometimes MINTY dish of white meat chicken in a very uptown country mint and wine sauce-ASK the server how it is on the evening you visit MUcho MAs-it can depend on who's doing the cooking.

POrk lovers will be pleased with a crispy outside, tender mosit inside CArnitas plate-again you can get a tostado or other plates useing the carnitas.

This is a place to ask for things your way-I usually have them hold the refried beans and have all rice-thus lightening the meal-ask for things like tortillas if you don't get them automatically. THe Salsa lately has been quite HOT-ask for one with less fire if you are so inclined.

Be aware this is a gay friendly restaurant and the bars of NOrth Hollywood are down the street-weekend evenings can be a very mixed crowd but never wild or unacceptable.

Parking on street or in a small cramped lot-for a quiet experience eat early-the bar can also be noisy on SPORTS nites and immediatly after work.
