Gonza Tacos y Tequila - Durham
Book your next event with us
This was my second time to Gonza Tacos y Tequila and I highly recommend it. The food is excellent at a very reasonable price. The service is also outstanding. The margaritas are very good also. The decorations are very nice and it's just a nice casual dining experience.
Great food and service, but loud. Three different entrees for four of us, and we all agreed, very tasty. A manager circulated, to check on things. One of us happened to have an empty glass, so he helpfully returned with a requested glass of wine. We were there in January, but the outdoors areas also look cool.
The enchiladas de mole were excellent as were our drinks. It was a busy Friday evening, but with our reservation we were seated right away. I’d definitely recommend a reservation for a weekend evening!
This was my third time there, and it was great as usual! Would definitely recommend the tacos and the Chile Relleno. They also have really great desserts! Overall, it's a super fun place, but I would definitely plan on making reservations in advance, especially if you're going during the weekend.
Our waitress was awesome! She anticipated all our needs. She was great! Guacamole is always delicious. Love the pablano chili pepper with chicken tinga filling as well as the Mexican flag. Always have a great time there.
Get the Mexican Flag!!
Great food, helpful servers. The only issue was that the kitchen closes at 8:30. We had a 8:15 reservation, and were 5 minutes late. At first, they seemed reluctant to let us order dinner, but then everything was fine. The service was very quick. No surprise, I guess, since they wanted to stop serving meals. The food was absolutely delicious, and we were happy to eat quickly and get home. So all was well. But if we'd wanted a leisurely dinner, the 8:15 slot would not have worked well, even if we hadn't been a few minutes late.
went with a group of 15 and experienced good service, good food and a great atmosphere. Overall very pleased
Very creative Mexican food. We have enjoyed their restaurant in Raleigh and the Durham location is just as good!
You have Bud Light on menu and yet you do not have Bud Light
Great food and fall drinks were spectacular!
Server lacked knowledge of the menu and capacities of the kitchen, despite the fact that I get the SAME dish every time I dine there. She wasn’t terribly friendly and attentive, but the food was fantastic as always.
Good food but not outstanding. My husbands dish was very bland and lacked flavor. Margaritas were wonderful and we enjoyed the fresh guacamole.
Fun and vibrant environment, great margaritas, fresh ingredients for the food. Great place for a celebration with friends. Staff is friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!
The food was really good! The sh
Food was delicious, portions small. Felt very closed in with little room to sit or table space for sharing.
Great food albeit a bit pricey for the portion sizes. The service was not fantastic but the food and tequila made up for the that.
Mike was our server the other night and we had an amazing evening! The service was outstanding, the atmosphere and decor is really cool, and the food and margaritas were great. Mike had great suggestions on what to order and was attentive and kind.
The Mexican flag was great!!!!
Great decorations and cool vibe, good cocktail menu. If you're looking for authentic tacos this is probably not the spot...the food was good but nothing to write home about.
Taco/Tequila bar/restaurants are all the rage now right now I rate them as almost a "fast food chain" establishment. The Guacamole was simply just a smashed avocado; none of the tacos were served with a series of different sauces on the side; chicken in the quesadila was poor quality. Drinks were ok should have stayed with BBQ in North Carolina.
If this place would let you mix and match tacos, that would be a game changer - worth at least another star overall. Slim menu so the mix and match would go a long way.
Excellent all around! Wonderful dinner and terrific service. We really enjoyed!
This was our first visit to Gonza Tacos y Tequila and it won't be our last. The atmosphere is very cool, the service was outstanding, and the food was very good. I also found the price to be more than reasonable.
I love the food, ambiance and service. It is a great hidden gem!
The food was incredible. Went there two nights in a row while at a convention and was equally pleased both nights. The Thanksgiving special was one of the best tacos I have ever had. I plan on coming back very soon.
Great food, cool atmosphere. The food usually comes out really quick and service is great. (My personal experiences)
Amazing food! Can’t wait to return
Love the food, ambiance and wonderful service! Can't wait to return.
I love Gonza's and I had a wonderful time having dinner with a long time friend. Amesha our waitress was SPECTACULAR and super nice! The outdoor seating and strings of lights makes for a beautiful setting.
I have dined here often always with an enjoyable experience.
This experience was horrendous. Appetizer had to be asked for 3 times.Wrong food delivered immediately after appetizer and had to be sent back.
Waitress very disorganized and slow. Argued with us when we mentioned the main course was wrong.
Very cool place! I really enjoyed the food and atmosphere.
The food and atmosphere are both great! I always enjoy my meal here.
The margarita choices need to be simplified
The food is very good and a great value
Gathered early for an dinner with friends from out of the country. Food and drinks were delicious-portions small. Service was good during the meal. However, after check arrived, felt rushed by the staff to leave so they could seat another party. EX finished water and the glass was immediatly removed from my place without asking. Busy night understood loud and clear.
Otherwise - good experience.
Our third amazing meal at Gonza’s! Love the tacos and the guacamole!
Gonza Rocks! The vibe is cool, the service is great. The tacos are delicious, prepared and presented with great thought and cooking precision.
