Gonza Tacos y Tequila
Had a wonderful evening thereHad a wonderful evening there with my mom and my daughter. My mom and daughter had never been but I have there for lunch and enjoyed very much. Food was great and the atmosphere was very enjoyable.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group had a great timeOur group had a great time and all the food was excellent!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great priceGreat margaritas and great food. Shredded pork and pineapple tacos, scallop and pork belly tacos, strawberry margaritas, good atmosphere, good service. Doesn't get much better when it comes to Tacos y Tequila.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, As AlwaysWe took some relatives visiting from out of town to Gonza on Friday for late afternoon drinks shortly after they opened, and they were impressed enough with their margaritas and the looks of the menu to want to return for dinner the next night. Gonza has some truly excellent tacos, especially the pastor; the pork is so tender and flavorful. Our party had some special requests regarding seating which I made in the reservation, which they were happy to accommodate. The outside tub to make bubbles is a really great touch, as we had two small children in our group; it gives the kids something to enjoy while the adults are enjoying after-dinner drinks. The next time our relatives are in town, I'm sure they'll want to come back!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Excellent!Our family loves Gonza's! It's no surprise that it is always busy!! Most recently we went for my husband's birthday. Food was delicious and service excellent as usual! Highly recommend Gonza's for both a casual evening meal or fun special occassion! We wish we lived a bit closer so we could go more often! My only regret is that because I am expecting a baby I couldn't have one of the famous margaritas... the virgin pomegranate margarita was a good mocktail choice. :)6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeGonza...knows what great food and atmosphere are about6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYum yum eatsDelicious food, perfect atmosphere, excellent service, kid-friendly, genuine staff6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is so eclecticThe restaurant is so eclectic and fabulous.

This place is always busy, but if you make a reservation (or time your visit early or late) there's no problem getting in.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic and funWhat a great restaurant! This was my first time at Gonza. The owner is delightful. The food was not your typical Tex-Mex, but was authentic. I highly recommend it.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday BashLove the atmosphere. ..easily accommodated large group.. but make reservation early.. this is a popular place. Food was great! I could have made a meal off the salsa and chips.. salsa was fresh and definitely not out a jar. Shrimp fajitas were great as well as the chicken quesadillas. Service was great..highly recommend Justin. Even the manager came by several times to ensure all our needs were meet. Celebrating a birthday and made the birthday boy feel special with birthday serenade and a shot of tequila! Will definitely be going back again!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnertook my family there for my wife's birthday. Everything was outstanding. Love the music and the wait staff is always great. This place has literally taken over the entire shopping center its so popular!!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI am Mexican, the ambianceI am Mexican, the ambiance is great not intimidating and the decoration is very nice. We were a table of nine and they treat us very well. Our server was fast and happy to please. The owner, who is Colombian, was very friendly. The food is not Mexican but the American version, however the tacos were fairly good. The menu is small, but all my group liked what they ordered.
It is a fun place and although the food is not the "real enchilada" is definitely word going to.
Tacotaco5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGonza the HostGonza is awesome. He is always present and makes sure everyone has a good time. Quite the host! Fun place to celebrate birthdays!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen you got it, you got it!The scene is vibrant and festive, hustling and bustling, the way you'd expect a great restaurant to be. The service was top-notch from the hostess that I confirmed with on the phone to the server to all the hands that chipped in along the way. I work in the industry so it was very apparent to me that these folks know how to handle a very busy restaurant! We love the passion fruit margaritas, the bacon wrapped chilis but all our food was GREAT! My friend said her chicken quesadilla was the BEST she ever tasted (and she's tasted alot!!) I will say if you are looking for swank, chic, or scene-y, this is not your place. Kids run around wild outside and the noise level is up there. But truthfully, when you got it, you got it and Gonza's GOT IT!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely!We celebrated a colleague's birthday here. Service was outstanding and food was wonderful!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMYummilicious!This was my second visit to Tacos Y Tequila. After having lunch there several weeks ago and loving it I suggested it for a recent family dinner out. The food was delicious, easily the best guacamole and salsa in town! The atmosphere is fun and energetic and the service was flawless. I have and will continue to recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Mexican food, just I make sure you make a reservation if you don't want to wait a while.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFun!We are not fun people but you can't help having fun here!! The food was great and so were the top shelf margaritas!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLove 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. I am always impressed with the food.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood very good. ExcellentFood very good. Excellent service. I ate inside. Outside more noisy but would try outside sometime5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMKeeper!We have lived in this neighborhood over 20 years and have never seen such a successful restaurant in this shopping center! 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 AMThird time to Gonza' s andThird time to Gonza' s and I enjoy it more each time. The food is consistently good and the portions are better. Initially they were too small for the price. The service was better this time. Servers were more mature and I did not feel as rushed to eat and turn over the table, which was definitely a nice change.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! We will definitely be back!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWell prepared and well presentedWell prepared and well presented fusion of Mexican and South American flavors.

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.
