We arrived with nine people for dinner (with a reservation) and we were nicely accommodated in a private room. Our server Roberta greeted us and was delightful the entire evening. Daniel assisted and pretty provided nice attention all evening. Drink orderes were taken and found...More

Thank you for your visit! I'm glad we were able to accommodate your group. The lamb is cooked in sweet chile sauce and most people like more sauce, but it is a matter of preference. Tell your friends and visit us again soon!

It's kind of hard to find, it's off the street and faces a parking lot in a little strip mall. My daughter had called ahead and they said they don't take reservations (group of five), but...if we could get there in 5 minutes, she'd have...More

Thank you for your visit! I'm glad you and your family enjoyed your meals. Unfortunately we don't have Sopapillas since they are New Mexican and we are more traditional style Mexican. Tell your friends and visit us soon!

We had been told by friends not to miss Mucho Gusto. We enjoyed it so much that we returned for another dinner the same week. The staff was most accommodating and the food was wonderful. We thought this was a truly great value--very reasonable.

We came to dine at Mucho Gusto, had some difficulty in finding the restaurant as it is in the little yeard off the road. The place was almost empty, nice and clean. We were four, tried four different dishes and each of them was wonderful....More

Thank you for your visit! Some people have the misconception that all Mexican is or has to be spicy. Untrue is that. We have dishes that are flavorful without all the spice.

We had an early dinner and so it was 4:30 with no cars in front when we pulled up. And it's tucked away off the beaten path where you won't see it quite so easily. But we are glad we went in. We ordered a...More

Thank you for your visit! I know many places in other states give free chips and salsa, but it is not the custom in Santa Fe. Also our salsas are made fresh never out of a can which is more costly for us.

Thank you for your visit! I'm glad you enjoyed the enchiladas. Flat as opposed to rolled is the traditional way serving enchiladas.

Locals were in the location, which is always a good sign, and filled up while we were there. Tried recommended trout dish, with fresh veggies, only way this can be better is when you catch, then cook by the stream. Local beers available too.

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.
