It was ok. The veggie fajitas were just more peppers and onions versus different vegetables.
Overall, seems expensive. Taste is great, however, not much in the soup except for tortilla strips, for example. Two kernels of corn. Won’t complain about the service. He was new.
The service, food and drinks were fabulous! We had a minor issue with the umbrella at our outdoor table where we ended up just laying it on the ground, out of the way. The staff was very attentive and offered a different table but it really wasn’t a big deal. Love Gonzas!
We LOVE Gonzas!! Staff is EXCEPTIONAL, food is always great and consistent and location is a breeze!! Perfect for date night, dinner with family, friends, company party, holiday party, etc! Something for everyone! Oh, and the strawberry margaritas are WONDERFUL!
Everything was excellent. Alivia did a great job with service. The guacamole and the queso were very flavorful. I had the chicken quesadilla- it was packed full of ingredients and I could only eat half of it. It also came with a generous dab of guacamole and sour cream - not the little dollops so many places put on the plate. My husband had the short rib quesadilla and it was delicious. We shared the Talega dessert - highly recommended. We have been to Gonza many times and it has never disappointed!
Came out on a Sunday night with my boyfriend and friends for a double date. Molly at the host stand was cheerful and had our reservation already set up. Sofia was amazing with everything throughout the meal and was sweet and accommodating to our party. The food was delicious! Even had Avery and Talon check on us and made us all feel welcome and special. An awesome night overall!
We love Gonza , service wasn’t as it has been but I think that’s due to staff shortage .
Very few appetizer and cocktail selections on the menu. Also didn’t like that we couldn’t mix and match tacos like other restaurants. Food was bland and tacos were really small and luke warm. Churros barely had any cinnamon sugar and were a little raw inside.
The food was great as always. Our service was horrible, our server was inattentive. As someone who also works at a restaurant my expectations are high when going out to eat and I was very disappointed.
Host stand seemed disorganized and drink service was a bit slow. The manager was very engaged and making sure that the restaurant was running smoothly. A bit of a mix up with our food that was corrected quickly.
It was our first time eating at Gonza Tacos and it did not disappoint. Definitely make reservations, especially if it’s a weekend. The service was amazing, we sat near the bar and the bar staff were exceptional. Our server, Alexa, was awesome, she gave us great recommendations and the food was excellent. The portions are perfect, so you don’t feel stuffed afterwards. The drink selection is fantastic and our dessert was amazing. Price was good and overall we will without a doubt be returning in the future.
We are frequent diners here but had a terrible recent experience. We were a party of five with a reservation and we were placed at a table for four. Our fifth person had to sit in an aisle which was in the way for the staff to serve diners. This was because the small table did not allow the fifth person to scoot in under the table. We were never asked if this was okay. Our fifth person was hit in the head by the servers three times trying to get through. The meal was 45 minutes from the seating time to on the table and one order had to be sent back as completely incorrect. The runners bringing the food shoved all of the food and drinks on the tight table out-of-the-way to get the food on the table without regard to placing dishes on top of silverware and forcing the pass of hot plates around the table. Meanwhile, the waitress gave her first set of excuses when she introduced herself at the beginning of the meal which did not create a great start. I’m very disappointed in the service all around and it’s unlikely we will visit again. The service quality has significantly declined over time and management was nowhere to be seen.
Family visiting from out of town.
The Durham location is always excellent so I came to the Wake Forest location expecting the same, and was really disappointed…I don’t normally put a lot of weight in slower or even frustrated service because I understand that everyone is stretched thin right now, but our experience with the wait staff here was notably pretentious. Big bummer since I’m the one who recommended Gonza for a family gathering and everyone left feeling grossed out…
The amazing food, music, and atmosphere made my 40th birthday celebration that much better! And Nicole is the best! Definitely ask for her if you grab dinner.
Food was awesome and the service was amazing. The outdoor seating was well spaced out.
There was a long hair in my salsa, th food was cold adn it took forever to gert our drink orders. So loud we couldn't hear our conversation with friends. Not worth the money. Overall disapointed. Won't visit again.
Great service and spectacular food!
Great service and good fun.
stellar food as always! good atmosphere for dine in.
Love this place! I just wish they wouldn't play the music so loud. Food is great, servers are always helpful and friendly.
Always solid, consistent and efficient
I love Gonza and have been to all but one of the locations. The food is always amazing, service is attentive, and whether you're inside or outside, the ambiance is always great. If you get a chance, ask if they have street corn (not all locations do). They easily adapted a meal for my gluten-free friend and the side salad is never boring.
Had a great dinner and excellent service! Can't wait until next time.
Always a great experience from seating to dessert!
Gonza is delicious and affordable and service is great!
Great as always!
Love Gonza! It's one of our favorite places and the service is always great.
Our first time here and everything was great!! From the atmosphere, to the food, to the cowbell birthdays :) The food was delicious, we ordered burritos, tacos, enchiladas all very good (short rib tacos were awesome) thank you Gonza for a fun night out!!
See you soon!
Limited menu but the ambiance was gorgeous. Service was great. Will definitely be going back!
Food was delicious. Waitress was seemingly overwhelmed with other guests. Took a min to actually order our meals. Prices have increased and portions have definitely decreased since we last dined.
We have been here three times and every visit it has been great. Last night we celebrated a birthday there and they made the occasion special. There food is delicious also.
My go to Mexican restaurant, always very good.
My birthday choice for dinner, every year! Excellent food!
Ashley was a pleasure! She was very attentive and sweet with us.
Wonderful place for family and friends, delicious food, great service. I would recommend and will go again.
Outstanding tacos and drinks. Had the Costello tacos, wife had Tonga, both delicious. Service was a little off, but we’re chalking that up to the widespread staffing issues right now. Will definitely go back in the future.
Gonza never disappoints. This was the first time I went to the Wake Forest location and I will be back. They have a cute brunch menu if you go around opening and they also serve their full menu all day. Drinks were good, service was speedy, management even stops by to see how everything is going. 10/10 recommend.
Oh, and you don’t have to wait hours before getting seated like every other brunch place in the area… we walked right in 😁🥳
Super busy night and our service was fantastic Gabby is a great server and the food was awesome.
