Server was personal and quick.
Other staff were helpful and refilled our drinks as well.
We were sat immediately upon entering the restaurant and all staff were very friendly and welcoming.

We read the review and decided to try this Mexican restaurant. We are so happy we did - the food was delicious (have to try the chilaquiles) and the service was equally as impressive! We were visiting our son and his family from Atlanta and will definitely be back!!! Thank You!

Sensational food as always...and our server Anna was fast, responsive, very upbeat and generally glad we were customers. The service level/training at Gonza's is really second to none. We will be back!

We always made a point of going to Gonza whenever in town but this time We were highly disappointed in the quality of the food. I guess good things don’t last forever. Friendly staff though.

Eat here a lot but extremely disappointed this visit. Our food was cold, wait staff wasn’t a good a normal and one set ever delivered food with his thumb halfway in the bowl touching the food.
Also seems like the prices have gone up and quality of food has gone done.

Went to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Our server Monica made the experience super special. Monica was the best ... someone give her a raise. Also, the food and margaritas were A+.

We've been to Gonza's numerous time over the last several years. First time was exciting with the festive ambiance and gas heaters for outdoor seating in cooler weather. Neat ambiance with a casual dress. The menu is limited, the prices are expensive, service is about par, so you decide. A dinner for a couple with 2 teenaged kids will be over $100. Don't mind if it's quality, but it's basically standard Mexican food with a limited selection menu. I ordered fajitas. The guacamole, lettuce, cheese side plate was nothing special but was presented fine and was on par with other mexican restaurants. Fajitas had a small piece of chicken sliced on top of peppers and onions. Was like...wow...are you serious ? Ordered Chipotle take-out a couple hours later. There's also some other things that bother me about the place but might be more on the line of personal. I think we just had our last meal there for a long long time.

Best Mexican food in Raleigh. This trip we were celebrating my son’s birthday but love to come here anytime - special occasion or not! Food is awesome, margaritas are great and service is always quick with friendly staff. Make a reservation if you can, or expect a wait, esp on the weekends.

We love the fresh food at Gonza. The atmosphere is so fun and the service is always great. We sit outside when possible where it is a little quieter.

We have been to Gonza maybe 20 times and never had a bad experience. In fact all previous experiences have been great.
This last visit not so much. Something was definitely off beat. Service was slow, salsa was “mushy”, and corn soup watery and pretty tasteless.
However, based on previous experience we hoping this was a 1 in 20 wobble and roll go again!

Way to loud to talk with others at table. Food seems to be getting more thrown together look and taste. Fajitas better at many other restaurants. Definitely a step down from the other times we have been here.

Overall the experience was wonderful. It seemed we had a longer than usual wait for the guacamole we ordered and the waitress forgot to bring us the extra chips we ordered. But overall, it was fabulous food and drinks!

Always love Gonza T&T. Best Margaritas in town and best selection of tequilas. I've been to various locations including Cary, Greystone Village, and Wake Forest. Food and service are always excellent. However, if you give to the Greystone village location, ask to be seated at Liguels table. Miguel is an excellent waiter!!!
