Food and margaritas were amazing, as usual. Could have done without the unfriendly hostess, but I think one of the owners noticed what was going on and got us seated. Love this place and can’t wait until they reopen in Durham.

Gonza is the best Mexican Restaurant in Raleigh, NC. Food and drink presentations are superb. Servers know what to do, when to do it, and quietly. Gonza, himself, checks every table to ensure his standards. The staff is a well trained team that works together to ensure that every course gets to your spot at just the proper time--not too soon or too late. Gonza is our Mexican Must!

Always a great experience. Food was wonderful as were the margaritas. OpenTable made it convenient to make a reservation. It was a safe and clean environment to enjoy my friends company in person. Will definitely be back.

Definitely get cheese dip and guacamole! We loved chicken rings tacos and couldn’t pick between soup or salad for the side-both looked so good!

This is the first time we haven’t had good service at Gonza. To start our meal, we ordered guacamole and queso for appetizers. With 4 of us, one small bowl of chips didn’t last very long and we had to keep asking for more. Unfortunately, many of the chips in the first two baskets were about a square inch in size. There weren’t many that were actually large enough to dip. Also, we had to ask twice for straws and multiple times for drink refills. Our food, however, was EXCELLENT! Overall, it was an enjoyable dinner; service just could have been a lot better.

Best tortilla soup ever! We enjoyed everything. We had the rib taco, chicken tinga, soup, chips/salsa with the amazing guacamole sauce. Margaritas were amazing.

We love this place and drive from Greenville just to have such a great place to go!
Thank you for being consistent with the food, great service.

This was our first time eating here and while the food was good, we felt rushed. We had a reservation. Our server was nice but she was already asking the table if they are ready for dessert when I was still eating my dinner! I wasn't even finished yet....she had cleared their plates off the table while I was still eating. I found it to be very rude.
