It is easily the best spot on university. Totally hipster mexican joint! Feels like a mexican cheers or something. Seriously, great food, great staff and the chips and salsa are awesome! Don't go around noon, it will be packed!

Not your average Mexican food joint. This place puts some interesting, and delicious, twists on classic dishes. I have yet to order something that wasn't amazing. The atmosphere is awesome, super chill, and the staff is very friendly and attentive. First impressions are a big deal, the chips and salsa is usually that first impression at Mexican restaraunts...theirs is very good! It is a little pricey in comparison to other Mexican food places but it's worth it.

8 dollar burritos at a 15 dollar price. Food was decent, but not at the prices they charged. We timed it and the waitress only left the kitchen once every 10 minutes, and forgot to bring back a refilled drink for the whole meal. Nice environment, but it definitely doesn't justify the price and service. The rice in 2 of 3 of our dishes was undercooked as well. I would not suggest this to anyone when there are much better options for cheaper. Quite faux chic.

My favorite Mexican food in the Phoenix area. Modern take on classical dishes. Higher prices but very generous portion sizes. Every menu item is uniquely delicious. A clean restaurant with wonderful staff. If you can get a spot near the fireplace, the patio is a pleasant place to eat in any weather. The parking lot is small but there's plenty of room on the nearby side streets.

Very nice little Mexican restaurant. The staff are very nice even I was paying with a gift certification. They treated me very well and gave me a corner table near the window where I can see the entire restaurant and watch what people are eating. I ordered Gringo Quesadilla with Carne Asada Steak, which is too much for me to finish. The portion is big to me. The general manager came and answered my questions nicely. I will definitely come back for more items on their lunch menu. The parking is the only thing I don't like. With lunch crowd, I have to find parking in the alley and walk 5 minutes to the restaurant.

I discovered Mucho Gusto one night while looking for a nice mexican place to take my girlfriend after work. Little did i know it would become our absolute favorite restaurant in town. I was so surprised to look and see the mediocre reviews the people are giving this hidden gem in the heart of Tempe. I've been there 15+ times now, and try a new dish as much as possible. However, the guacamole is a definitely requirement for every visit! So don't be discouraged by the snotty reviews, Mucho Gusto is an excellent, unique restaurant that surely will not disappoint!
