The well-appointed Mucho Gusto - which takes a sometimes non-traditional twist on Mexican cuisine - can be mucho pricey, if you hit the place up for dinner. But happy hour is both pleasant and affordable.
From 3 to 6, Monday through Friday, Mucho Gusto provides $3 house margaritas, house wine, Dos Equis Amber and Lager, as well as $5 appetizers.
We'll be honest: The margaritas are sans sweet & sour mix (a plus, in our book), but they're nothing to write home about. The wine selection, though, is surprisingly impressive, including South American wines, along with the more obvious Californian, Oregonian, and French selections.
The alcohol is adequately priced, but here, the real value is on the appetizer section of the menu. One unusual but tasty favorite: the guacamole, laced with a jalapeño/Grand Marnier reduction.
Mucho Gusto is located at 603 W University Drive in Tempe.
