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!!!

Outstanding food, service and ambiance as usual! The north Raleigh location has been my family's go-to Mexican restaurant since Gonza very first opened. We're always impressed by the amazing service and consistently amazing quality of the food. Keep it up Gonza, we'll always keep coming back for more!

I love this place! We made a reservation since we were in from out of town. Gonza is the perfect place to celebrate a birthday! My fiancé turned 35 and this is the perfect atmosphere. Our server Miguel was attentive and efficient, we couldn’t have asked for a better dining experience. Thanks Gonza North Raleigh!

Have been here twice now, within the span of a few weeks. The first time the food was great, really tasty. The second time the food seemed more bland-ordered guacamole that didn't have much flavor, and chili rellenos which was good but had more flavor the first time around. Found that to be strange since we had just been there a few weeks earlier.

Our server made the dining experience at Gonza very worthwhile. She (wish we had her name) was enthusiastic, knowledgable, and attentive. Food was very good and we enjoyed dining on the patio. Will definitely return when we're craving authentic Mexican food.
