Great tortillas, great burritos. It is not the best Mexican restaurant in the Valley, but it is close to home and does an excellent job catering for parties.

We live near Mucho Gusto and it is one of our favorite Mexican Restaurants. The guacamole is wonderful and we especially like the chili rellenos. They have great happy hour specials as well. It is only 5 blocks from ASU.
