Several items on the menu seemed to be based on items that could be left to cook all day if need be. Not wanting one of these items I chose something that was grilled, Beef Carnitas. What I got was something that had been swimming in tasty juices and had no indication of being grilled. I was regretful for what... More

Excellent food and even better service. Pass up the high dollar big names and come here to this great little family restaurant

I say this restaurant is between average and very good. It's a small restaurant and when we first walked in we were nervous because there were only two table occupied. However, by the time we left 1 dining room was full and everyone seemed to be enjoying their food. The service was great, our waitress was very prompt and helpful.... More

Enjoyed dinner at Mucho Gusto after a day long drive to Santa Fe. The service was excellent as were our Mexican dishes. We shared the salsa/guac/green chile trio with chips and the suiza enchiladas. Both dishes were easily shareable and excellent comfort food. We will definitely return to this authentic casual restaurant in walking distance of Canyon Road and The... More

A small restaurant tucked in a small strip center near the Inn on the Alameda, Mucho Gusto features outstanding dishes at a reasonable price. Seasonings run flavorful without being too caliente. All ingredients seem homemade, like they were right out of the garden or from the meat market, and preparation was fantastic. The chicken chimichangas were great, and the pork... More

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and made a reservation right away, which I highly recommend. The food and service were outstanding and the place was packed. The agave wine margaritas were the best. I will definitely return when I am back in Santa Fe.

This is a little restaurant in the back of a strip mall. But the outside doesn't give the impression that this is a great place to eat wonderful Mexican cuisine. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. Heard the mole sauce is incredible but didn't try it. Learned this after our meal :(

Yes, yes and yes! This place was recommended to us by one of the art consultants at Ventana Gallery and we loved it. Small place a little hidden away, but well worth a little time to find. My husband had the Creamy Chicken Enchiladas and Sierra Cantabria Tempranillo wine. I had the Orange Tequila Shrimp (truly awesome flavor) and Foxglove... More

The "Bomb" chicken dish was so good we had it two nights. Great margaritas too. Not a fancy restaurant but very good service

Really good food. Great location easy to find. The flat enchiladas with chicken were very good and not too spicy. The homemade guacamole was delicious.
