We had lunch at Mucho Gusto in October 2018 while visiting Santa Fe as part of a memorable trip to the U.S. Southwest. It is conveniently located in a strip mall off the quieter end of Palace Avenue on Paseo de Peralta which is just...More

If you love black beans, get at least a side of the refried beans. Amazing good stuff. We enjoyed the flautas, soup de jour and the salsa/guacamole with chips. Perfect amount of food we did not go away hungry or have huge amounts left over.

Basically across the street from The Drury Suites but look for it. It’s at the very back of a little strip center. The evening we were there they had a party of 28 arrive shortly after we were seated. So I think our server was...More

We ordered the bomb and it was. Off the beaten path. Loved by the locals. Small business snuggled in the back of a little strip center. Worth the trip. We split the dish because there portion size was so large.

Hello! We have been told we make an outstanding Mole. We make Mole Poblano and serve it with turkey but you could sub it out for chicken if that is your preference.
