The vegetable soup was excellent with a mix of veggies and a little angel hair and corn chips. The grilled shrimp quesadillas where nicely grilled and not soggy. Very tasty.

I visit Santa Fe often, and just went to Mucho Gusto on Saturday. I love that place! It is informal, convenient to the downtown area, and the food is always better than I remembered. This time I had the chicken chalupas which were delicious. The...More

We walked from our hotel on what must have been the coldest day of the year and most if not all restaurants were booked. The food and service were excellent. A very friendly staff. I'll return.

This restaurant is in walking distance of our house. Nothing fancy. Basic, good food. Nice wait staff. And rational prices. It is nice to get away from some of the food snobbery and eat here now and then.

We stopped in here on our first night in Santa Fe, as we weren’t able to get into our top choices without a reservation and were very hungry. We were skeptical about the restaurant when we got there, as it was mostly empty and had...More

Love this tucked away and off the beaten path Mexican restaurant! It is only two blocks from Plaza but you kind of have to know where it is - mostly locals some and indulge here. Everything good, but the “Bomb” is really to die for!...More

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.
