The salsa tasted like it came from a can. We ordered chicken fajitas and I'm not sure there was any fajita seasoning. The mushrooms appeared petrified. It was obvious that the chicken was added at the end because it was laid neatly on top rather than cooked in with the vegetables. The food was just ok, nothing special. The service was average.
Gonza has always been one of my favorite places to eat in the triangle. I will continue to go there!
These days we are early diner to avoid crowds. So when we went there were very few diners. We enjoyed it very much.
Great food and margaritas! Had a great server named Hunter. He went above and beyond checking on us. I'll definitely be back!
The cheese, guac and salsa dips are always amazing. I love their Plantano steak dish. Good place to eat, I highly recommend.
Food quality was great. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Prices are what you would expect of the area, but portions were a bit smaller than expected. Great tequila selection.
The food was great and the service was fantastic. Mexican flag dish was awesome.
Service was attentive, thank you for the great attention during COVID restrictions. Margaritas were excellent, we had a few additions we needed after food was delivered that took a while to get but understood as we were seated outside and it was very busy. We'll be back.
Great food, drinks and atmosphere! Highly recommend!
Always solid food. Super nice and knowledgeable bartender.
I love their carne Asada steak that is not in the menu.
Absolutely delicious. The guac is unreal!
Wasted time with a reservation. Had a reservation that was not honored. Waited over half an hour past reservation time. Would've been just as fast to show up without one.
Food was great as always, but service was lacking. Took over 10 minutes before a server acknowledged the party. She said it was not her section and was helping the server who had the table. She took drink order, and then the other server delivered it. She never acknowledged the long wait before being greeted by wait staff.
The server was extremely helpful in helping my date order with vegan options. Service was quick and the host were extremely welcoming. The ambience speaks for itself, no complaints from this happy diner.
Food was good. This restaurant is designed to be loud. You can not carry on a conversation. The servers are long time employees. Probably won’t be back until warmer weather when you can sit outside.
All of the food was outstanding. We were with 1st time guests and they loved it.
Love the decor, atmosphere, service and the food!!
Very nice waitress and great service. Food was delicious as always. Will go back, for sure.
A spendy upscale neighborhood Mexican place with good food and good drinks. Reservations highly recommended as it is often busy with long waits otherwise.
Very hospitable in the service that was provided. Nice decor and the environment was welcoming. Outstanding service provided by the staff. Overall great experience. Best tacos I’ve ever had.
Gonzas food is always fantastic! They were very organized and ready for us right on time for our reservation!
Decor is vibrant. Food was good (though way too many onions) and service was adequate. Restaurant was very noisy - not just with patrons, but music too. The energy felt a little hectic - not relaxing. Also felt crowded as tables were very close together and carts with food could narrowly get by.
We love this place. Good food, atmosphere and food beer!
The steak in the Mexican flag dish wasn’t fresh like it usually is actually it has not been the last few times. There wasn’t much pork or cheese in my girlfriends dish as it’s usually is either
Margaritas were good however and the atmosphere was great
Service was slow. The food was slow. Was told that for our Birthday party dinner we would have singing, a shot, and ice cream for the birthday person. It was just a few bangs on a can and not really a birthday wish. Had to ask for shot and ice cream. The check took for ever to come to the table for each group that was at the table. Then they had it wrong on the ticket and had to go back several times to get the tickets correct! I think all the dinners should had been paid for. We had reservations at 7:15 and we didn't get out until they had put tables up and was cleaning the room. 9:30pm Very disappointed to celebrate my sister's birthday!
Always good food and service. If you're a first-timer, try the Mexican Flag. I've had a lot of things on the menu and I'd order each of them again. Service is fast and freshly made. My wife is a vegan and they do an excellent job of taking care of her with adjustments. Recommend reservations. It's busy on weekends, but rightfully so.
I have been here multiple times. My daughter was visiting from GA and this is her favorite place to eat so we made a reservation and came in for dinner before she was scheduled to return home the next day. As it was fairly early there were many available tables. The hostess sat us at a table right next to the kitchen, bathrooms and server stand. The food was delicious and our server was excellent. We were very disappointed by the atmosphere around our table. Our conversation was interrupted several times by noisy conversation from the kitchen and loud waitstaff hanging around the kitchen door and bathrooms. Some were eating a chocolate bar and did not even wash their hands prior to returning to the kitchen and/or waiting tables. We were disappointed by our experience.
Great service and even better food. This place is the only Mexican restaurant we’ll go to. Love it!!!
Enjoyed great food and service at Gonza as part of a girls' get together. Food was yummy (I had the stuff plantain with steak and pintos) and the service was friendly and quick, but not invasive. Great selection of cocktails, wine, and draught Mexican beer. We will be back!
Crowded but we had a reservation and got seated right away. They should update the decor in the room to the right of the entrance to match that of the rest of the restaurant. Food and service was great.
I recently left a not so great review about the Cary location. Our visit this time was much better service. A younger Gentlemen, I think his name was Juan, totally redeemed our visit. He was very fast, had a sense of urgency and was responsive.
We love this place, it’s one of our weekly haunts. The food is imaginative and delicious, the tequila and mezcal drinks are top notch, and the place is just fun! Be sure to try the Tacos del Chef!
We have always had good experiences with Gonzas but most recently our last couple of visits at the Cary Location haven’t been as good. We went on Sunday night and there were only about 7 tables of people, very slow. Our server was nice but seemed to be very slow. We didn’t get our drinks for 20 minutes and were almost done with our appetizers before we ever got our drinks. My husband got the wrong beer and my drink didn’t taste right. Just seemed like they weren’t as focused on urgency with it being so slow.
Great as always!
Restaurant was closed. No notice on reservations s portal.
Food was good. The music was so loud that we couldn’t hear our server and he could not hear us. They were asked several times to turn it down and finally did. It’s frustrating to have to repeat your order. I want to say that our server only offered us water and margaritas, but it was too loud to hear anything he said. We have been here several times and it’s never been like that. Very disappointed.
Open table reservation was not honored.
