Very tasty food with a great ambiance and location. ask to get a window seat when the weather is warm for the most fun experience. The mexican flag is probably the best item on the menu but any of the tacos are great. I wish they were open for lunch and later for dinner.
Fantastic service and always great food!
Celebrating a birthday
We have been many times but this one missed the mark badly. Server made three mistakes of not paying attention. No buzz or vibe in the restaurant.
Fantastic food and service!!
The food was great! The bar was a little confused. But, we’ll go back for sure. Good food, most everything was amazing. The mahi-mahi was not fresh, but everything else was top notch and not run off the mill Tex-Mex. I highly recommend it.
Great way to begin graduation weekend!
Friendly waitress and good food. Great guacamole!
Great experience, food fantastic as always!
Gonza is one of our favs! Beautiful restaurant (Hillsborough Street), great service, and fantastic food. Start off with a margarita (passionfruit!) and guac and salsa. Everything I've had is delicious, especially the Tacos Pastor with chicken/avocado soup. Go tonight!
Great experience at Gonza! Amazing food and drinks and the staff was so nice.
Chicken nachos were outstanding!!! The chicken tinga was spicy so it wasn’t boring.
I am still thinking about that chile relleno! So delicious!
I am a fan of Gonza and provides a great experience for house visitors.
Best place to go for birthdays, food is always served quickly and service is amazing!
Consistently good. Great atmosphere and excellent food!
Great service, great food, great ambience !
I always love Gonza! Everything always comes out great and the servers are great as well!
We love this restaurant! The food is fresh and flavorful. Not your usual Mexican fare. Staff was friendly and helpful. Seating was socially distanced and we felt safe.
Still had to wait 20 minutes with a reservation, and another table of 2 who came in after our party were given a table 10 minutes earlier than us. Hostess made it seem like it was our fault for coming in on a busy Saturday, even though we had a reservation. It’s your job to make sure there are tables open when your reservations come in and there were at least 4 parties waiting for a table with a reservation. When we were sat, it felt like we were being rushed out. All of our food came before our drinks arrived. Poor timing all around.
Gonza was fantastic as always! We had to wait a bit for our table, but our waitress and yummy food made the wait worth it.
I ordered the Pastor tacos and they were delicious!
Love it! Y’all rock it’s so yummy and fun at Gonza!
Love it here! The daily special margarita was delicious and the food was excellent ! I will definitely be visiting here again very soon!
Gonza’s is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Raleigh. From the food and drinks to the service, it’s a great experience.
We had a table of 9 for my birthday and it was amazing!! The food is consistently delicious. Our only complaint was some lag time in between drink refills but it was busy so I understand.
Great atmosphere. Good food at great price point. Chips and guacamole were so good!
Fabulous as always! Food is very good and staff is always pleasant.
Excellent food and service!
Understaffed. Service was slow. Table of 8 and they would keep bringing out 1 small basket of chips at a time with 1 salsa only when asked.
This location is always so quick and delicious! We love Gonza
Not following social distancing regulation - sat us at the same table with another group that was dinning. We had 2 seats between both ends - possibly 2-3 ft away. Management and staff starred our table down the whole night due to one member not having an ID. Imagine taking a bite from your food & looking up to see someone starring you down - that was awkward. Food and drinks during this visit were average. I’ve had better service in the past were my guest did not feel targeted.
Personally would not return to this location. Gonza is my usual to go spot when meeting with friends, but the way things were handled was very unprofessional and nothing like I’ve ever experienced.
Bigger tacos portion size. Too small of a portion size for my friend
Always a great choice. Food is always prepared correctly and service is always great.
Great experience! Had a phenomenal waitress!
The food is outstanding. The service was okay as we would have liked more salsa and chips.
The location is very neat N.C. State and has a good vibe without being a college hang out. Great staff very knowledgeable in various tequilas and how to mix up wonderfully variety of drinks !
Second time coming and the food and service is great! My only critic is the music was quite loud. I wasn’t sure if that was because no one else was inside or if I was seated in a area below a speaker. Regardless, I will come back!
The food is really good. But the service is horrible. Any request is ignored. You’ll have to ask at least 3 times. They got the order wrong but we kept the entree anyway but up-charged for shrimp when we ordered chicken. This place had service issues even before Covid. Haven’t been in almost 2 years hoping they would get better but it’s almost comical how bad the service is. If you have to eat here get take out but I’m sure they’ll mess that up too.
