Gonza Tacos y Tequila
Love this place!Gonza Tacos y Tequila is one of my favorite restaurants! Love the spicy Mexican Mojito with the serrano peppers mixed in. The food is great, the service is wonderful, it's like visiting old friends. The managers always remember us and will even ask about people who are usually in our group, but maybe didn't make it this time. This is a lively, upbeat place and it can get loud, so if you need a little less noise, ask for a corner spot on the covered porch. Love, love, love this place....5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!This place is unique. The food is not your typical Mexican...combo #27, but a great assortment of entries with choices of sides. I love the tortilla soup. Been there several times. Arrive early.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my favorite placesOne of my favorite places in Raleigh.

Food is wonderful and fresh ! Staff is friendly & courteous, the owner makes the rounds to meet and greet. You can tell he truly appreciates his patrons and the business they bring in to his restaurant! Tinga is my favorite, but everything on the menu is delicious. The portions are perfect - - not your typical over-abundant platter of food! HIghly recommend!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticAs usual we are never disappointed here, We usually go for the tacos but this time we tried the jalepeno bacon wrapped appetizer and the chili rellenoes. Outstanding!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMHave eaten here about 30 timesHave eaten here about 30 times in the past year. Never have had a bad meal.
Have brought everyone to this place.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, non Americanized MexicanFood was excelent. Portion size of Guacamole too small for the $5 price. Place was a tad noisy for anything romantic or a first date. Great place for a party! Make a reservation early, this place is hoppin busy even on weekdays.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMCool place!This place is pretty neat - I don't know how I didn't know about it sooner! Music was kind of too loud, but it was good music so it kind of balanced out. Food was AWESOME! But its very small portions... If you're looking for a big meal, get more than just one dish. I love spicy stuff, so as far as drinks, I will definitely be ordering the Spicy Pepino again. It was spicy and refreshing. I'll be back!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExtremely friendly staff thatExtremely friendly staff that demonstrated professionalism and kindness. The food was amazing!

The margaritas are terrible!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of those m a g i c a mixesOne of those m a g i c a mixes that is a huge hit!! Continued success, just please
don't advertise....4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't spoil a good thingAs always, Gonza's was delicious & quick. We loved the new lunch menu. It would have been a perfect lunch if one diner had only controlled her pre-schooler running around, tripping waitstaff & gorging on the free mints at the hostess stand. I wanted to stand up & play "grumpy grandma" & demand that the child behave! I think the owner showed great restraint in not showing her & her brat the door!4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place. Mahi Mahi tacosGreat place. Mahi Mahi tacos were especially good. Have always had quality food; very fun atmosphere although it can be noisey inside. If you want a quieter setting, ask for patio seating. I rated the service as 'good' only because the waitress didn't seem very enthusiastic about being there. Always impressed with seeing the manager walk around and interacting with customers.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMJust a great place to go.Just a great place to go. I was on a flight this week and I recommended Gonza's to the person next to me that wanted my ideas on where she and her co-workers should go.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect!Party of 9 and it was by far the best girls dinner we have had in a long time!

Wonderful for any age and the best food in town!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter being raised in CaliforniaAfter being raised in California and eating Mexican food all my life, I can honestly say this is the best Mexican food I've ever had. The
CHILAQUILES VERDES (chicken / tortillas / crema / cilantro / onions / avocado / queso fresco / tomatillo sauce) are the BEST thing I have ever eaten. Carnitas tacos might be second. Gonza is wonderful.
Laurie Watson3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGonza Tacos y Tequila hasGonza Tacos y Tequila has quickly become my favorite Latin/Mexican/South American fusion restaurant in the Triangle. The service is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu, and they will make you laugh. The environment is open and energetic, making you comfortable to chat up the table next to you. If you like great food in a fun environment, this is the place to go.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good food, greatConsistently good food, great friendly staff, owner almost always present working the dining area. We return often and bring guests who are always pleasantly surprised at the quality at what appears to be a casual atmosphere restaurant.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA simple delightA colleague told me about this restaurant and thought I would give it a go. It was a lovely warm evening and the area was full of folks enjoying themselves. If you just turn up you will have a little wait, and the bar area gets very crowded but you normally get a table within 20 mins so if you are very hungry book ahead. The food is great. I dont like mexican resturants that give the food an american edge. This is very basic but is very tasty. The beer is great, but last visit no habenero beer which I missed. The durham beer is my favourite and went well with the meal. Overall, a great place which if you like tequila, good food and a vibrant scene then your in for a good night.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are regulars and the placeWe are regulars and the place is awesome. Bottom line - If you have to crawl to get there do it.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFunky Restaurant in a Strip MallFun, delicious, great service. Vibrant with great choices and happy wait-staff. What's is not to love? Go! Enjoy!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGonza Knows How to Run a RestaurantOne of my favorite restaurants in North Raleigh. Gonza and his management team are always there ensuring customers are satisfied by circulating and talking to them. Food is great, atmosphere is lively and if you're lucky, you may see their live mannequin shake her tambourine when tipped.
The outdoor dining is great when the weather is warm. Festive, lively, good food & drink and management that cares. Can't beat that2/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
