For $45 for lunch, we were hoping to be wowed by the food, which we would rate as simply okay. Not bad, not spicy - which was disappointing; and the portions were decent. A good crowd of locals, which I found surprising. At abotu $15 a plate, I think our expectations were a lot higher. I had the beef carnitas,... More

Lifechanging dishes in a world of consistency, great art, and fabulous management. Your mouth wont believe where your feet have brought them. Come hungry.

Dinner was the order of the day at Much Gusto. We started with their Sangria Roja, which was underwhelming. My wife ordered the Flautas and I ordered Beef Carnitas. Both were on their House Specialties menu. My wife thought the flautas, which were three chicken, cheese, cilantro and onions were just OK. Only one of the flautas had any appreciable... More

We are foodies, so we always read up on good places to eat when traveling. We had read about this place and decided to make it our first stop as soon as we drove into Santa Fe. The restaurant sits on the corner of a small shopping center, and looks very simple from the outside. When you first step inside... More

Salsa verde is the best that I have ever had. Cheerful staff, excellent menu and only blocks from our hotel

Located away from the plaza in a less touristy area. Many locals were eating here. Service was awesome, food was fresh, tasty. We ordered flautas, taquitos, chicken burrito and enchiladas. The green chile sauce and guacamole were excellent. Prices for entrees were $11-14. Would eat here again.

This great Mexican restaurant is near the square and has excellent food and charming service. We had garlic trout which was fabulous as well as enchiladas with a delicious mole sauce. The rice pudding and flan were also delicious. The prices were reasonable and the service was excellent and fast! We highly recommend it!

Today I decided to try Mucho Gusto for lunch & I'm pleased that I did. I've been visiting SF for several years now, but have found that it's hard to find restaurants here that serve Mexican-style mole sauce, since the red & green New Mexican chili sauces are more popular. I chose the turkey mole enchilida plate. As a midwesterner... More

Given all of the rave reviews for their Mole Enchiladas, this had to be the first restaurant that I tried after flying into ABQ and driving to Santa Fe. Thanks to viewing it's location on Google Maps and reading detailed reviews, I found this place that is really hidden away among some art galleries. One really has to know which... More
