So glad we tried this place! Definitely worth reserving a table, as it is a popular spot. The tacos were outstanding! Absolutely going back next time we're in town!
Tacos were good, but my yucca was overcooked. A friend said their rice was bland. First time they got my margarita order wrong, which they quickly corrected, second margarita they forgot about. Empty water glasses. Probably won't return.
Had a reservation and was not seated for about 10 minutes because the restaurant was overbooked. Restaurant is too dark and way too loud. Food was average. Server was great.
If you like Mexican food you Gonza will not disappoint. Service is quick and friendly and the margaritas are great.
The server and manager were wonderful in helping us get to our show on time. They were so attentive! Food was amazing. Both the pork and chicken in our tacos was fall-apart tender.
Food is always amazing. Tables were insanely close together and it was almost impossible to get in and out. Even the waitress was struggling to get to our table to serve us. Otherwise another pleasant experience.
As usual Gonza did not disappoint! Always great food, fresh and great service. The small menu keeps things simple and really good. The service is a bit too quick but we know that going into this.
The food was great but the service was just ok - I ran out of water multiple times and we had to flag someone down to ask for more chips.
Food was outstanding! Server was attentive and knowledgeable and his recommendations were spot on. Excellent restaurant and definitely would go back!
Always good food and service. Sat us at a high top in the bar area which normally isn’t bad but a large group was waiting for a table and I felt like we were dining with them. They bring the food out very quickly. Seems like they want you in and out to turnover the tables which really is the only downside to this spot. I suggest ordering drink and appetizer and then waiting a bit to order entree so you have more time to enjoy. Overall a really good spot for Mexican food and drinks and I always try to visit when in the area.
We had a good time. Great service.
The food was good. I wish the guac was made table side. The table for 4 people was really small considering the size of the plates. With food, drinks, and chips with salsa and guac, it was a very tight fit. The ambiance is great and it’s decorated well to fit the theme. It’s dark so if you have a hard time reading in dim lighting, you’ll need a light. Overall it was good and we would go back but not for a big group.
Consistently outstanding. I would have given them 5* in service, but our server was split between opposite ends of the restaurant. To their credit, the manager stepped up and really came through for us. Overall, it was an enjoyable experience as we celebrated my daughter’s 16th birthday. And by the way, they have the best carne in town.
Dinner at Gonza was excellent! Atmosphere was very nice and our service was superb!! We’ll definitely be going back!!!
Delicious food and fun atmosphere. one of my favorite spots in durham!
Awesome food and relaxed ambjence
First time there - food was great as was service (Karen was our waitress)
I loved the atmosphere. Such creative décor! The service was very good. My shrimp tacos were a bit spicy for me. I wish the menu would have indicated that this was a spicy dish.
Great server! Very good margaritas! Fish Tacos were very good. The Chicken Tacos were ok. Slightly expensive when you get guac and cheese before, two taco dinners with a side and four drinks, but we loved it!
The food was amazing, albeit a little pricey, and the service was great! I’d recommend making a reservation, as the walk-in line was very long on Saturday night.
Very fun! Great drinks too!
Delicious food and wines by the glass. Look forward to returning!
Excellent food and wonderful tequila. Great for a night out with friends! Can get a bit loud but food makes it worth it!
Wait staff was slow and then felt rushed to leave as we were finishing out meal.
This location has always been great, I normally go on show nights for DPAC. The staff is friendly and the service is fast. The ambiance is pretty amazing, and the food is good too! I definitely recommend!
Great experience! Will definitely be back!
High quality Mexican fusion food. Entertaining atmosphere. Reservations almost mandatory, it's so popular!
We got together to celebrate some career changes with our friends! I love the food and the atmosphere. It can be loud, but they sat us in the back room and it the sound was not too loud, but manageable there. We love coming to this restaurant. The food is so delicious and always amazing quality. Our waiter was friendly and attentive to our needs. Overall, it was a fantastic experience!
They hurried us through our meal and never even asked if we wanted another drink or dessert. Food is good but more like a chain restaurant in how they treat the diners.
My husband and I travel to Durham specifically for Gonza Tacos y Tequila. We love their tacos and the fresh guacamole appetizer is delicious.
Way to rushed. All the servers rushed all the tables . Kitchen pumped out orders as if they the dishes were premade and ready to go.
Had to constantly inform server we were not in a rush. It didn’t matter. In and out in less than a hour. Won’t go back.
Food and service is amazing every time! The ambiance and decorations are very unique! The menu has something special for everyone. I love the tacos and special side items! I always leave full and happy!
Fun time. Food & drinks good as was the service
Food and service were outstanding.
Everything is delicious here. Menu is full of attractive choices, you can’t go wrong.
Awesome, quick service! A fun meet up with family while they were in town.
Great food, and good value. Neat ambiance; look forward to returning.
The food here is always tasty, especially the guac, although my last two times here my entree came out cold. Our server was extremely nice and helpful but just seemed overwhelmed. Overall, it’s a fun atmosphere for a night out.
It was very crowded and noisy but the food was delicious!
Great food. Don’t miss the Mexican Flag. Forced to sit outside and it just not as great as the inside seating. Drinks were a little slow but whole place was awesome.
