Gonza Tacos y Tequila - Durham Ratings and Reviews
Waited over 25 minutes for our food to show up and the waiter didn't seem to care or acknowledge. Maybe I'm spoiled from other Mexican restaurants in the area that get the food out in less than 15. Otherwise, the interior decorating is some of the best I've seen and the food, tacos, fajitas, salad, and soup was very good. We'd go back but expect to wait a bit for the meal and plan accordingly.
The scallop and pork belly tacos were absolutely outstanding. The scallops were cooked to perfection and not overdone or rubbery. My friend really enjoyed her steak tacos. The guacamole definitely needed salt but that was easily remedied.
Unfortunately I took a gamble on the coconut flan to go. I love coconut. I love flan. I trusted that somehow they would marry the flavors perfectly, but it was a dessert abomination!! Do not try! Good texture but the flavor was horrible!
I had the “Mexican Flag”, on a high recommendation from my boss at work. My wife had a burrito of some type (can’t recall the exact name). We both agreed that it was probably some of the best Mexican food we’d ever had here in the Durham area before. I would wholeheartedly recommend this to friends and come back for more!
Waitress rushed us out, even took our water glasses.l from us. Would have appreciated a “you can visit our bar if you’d like to stay, but we need your table” instead of passive aggressive approach to getting us to leave. Have Enjoyed my Gonza experience everywhere else but Durham.
This is the first time I have been to this restaurant and had an issue, as soon as we got in for our 930 reservation we were immediately reminded that they close at 10 PM. If you close at 9 PM why I have reservations available on OpenTable up to 9:45 PM? It is certainly not likely someone can come in and have a meal cooked for them and they eat and a 15 minute time frame. I made the reservation in assumption if they have 930 reservation time then they are likely to be open to accommodate such. Food was good but we felt we were constantly being rushed. I am likely to not go back for a while, if at all to this location. The one in Cary is more accommodating.
Excellent tasty Mexican food. Somewhat small portions. When you order a plate, they list 4 side options (soup, salad, rice, or beans)--you only get ONE of those FOUR options with your meal, which was a bit of a surprise to me since most Mexican restaurants are more generous with their portions. That being said, the food was delicious. Well-seasoned and seemed very fresh. I would recommend this place. I will definitely come back. Cocktails were also pretty small (they filled up the glasses about 1/2 way).
The food was fairly good but not great as far as Mexican food goes. I had the shrimp fajitas which tasted pretty much like fajitas everywhere else. They were served very hot which was nice and there was enough to make 3 small fajitas. My sister had the enchilada with mole sauce and rice and beans which were really quite bland and ordinary. The service was spotty even though it was not very busy. Overall a decent meal but nothing to write home about.
The outside dining area looked like a fun place to have dinner and we will probably try this restaurant again in the spring when we can dine outside.
