Gonza Tacos y Tequila - North Raleigh Ratings and Reviews
We usually are very pleased with the food here. During out
R last visit, however, although we ordered the same dishes that we ordered when we last visited, everything was extremely spicy even though it was not supposed to be or had been previously. It made our dishes not as enjoyable.
We were seated promptly, served promptly, had a great waitress who failed to introduce herself. Spouse had shrimp fajitas which he thoroughly enjoyed. I ordered the Nachos Bagachos which were incredible and enough to share - the best tinga chicken I can remember!
Gonza is a great fun place to go have a delicious affordable meal & drinks. I’ve never said; “nah, I don’t feel like going there.” I really love it & the important part is that it’s fun & lively with top notch quality & consistency with an emphasis on quality. That’s a terribly hard mix of things for restaurants to get right & in the 5 year’s I’ve been coming they’ve never missed a beat.
Kitchen was off this visit unfortunately. The chilaquiles verdes dish I ordered - highly recommended by a friend - was just not good. The chicken was cut into large chunks that needed to be cut before I could eat - isn't this supposed to be made with shredded chicken? That's what I had anticipated, but these unwieldy and unappetizing chunks ruined the dish for me. Also, the tomatillo sauce weirdly had no acidity to it and lacked flavor so, all in all, this dish was a big disappointment.
On a positive note, our waitress was awesome, the margaritas were delicious and the guacamole and salsa were amazing, as always.
This is one of our favorite places to eat - we go as a family (love that it is totally fitting for big small kids while not being obnoxious for other diners) often, and we’ve brought many visiting family members and friends here, too. Atmosphere is always lively and fun, the staff is very friendly and accommodating, food is delicious (as are drinks!!), and we love that Gonza is always there checking in on things. Love it!
