Tacos were a little dry. Enchiladas very good. Loved the chips and salsa. Would like to see a bigger beer selection. Our waitress was excellent ! Friendly, attentive, efficient.

We had such a great time! Our server (Britney) was great, and the food and ambience were both fantastic. It was my birthday so I was serenaded by a very talented trumpet player and given a bday shot to boot! We will definitely be back soon.

Food is mediocre. Mexican flag meal arrived luke warm and was bland. My date didn’t eat the soup which looked more like a dip. Margaritas must be premade as the arrived in seconds and topped with soda for some reason. Staff was very nice. Decor is interesting to look at but the food was something to forget.

Great Raleigh restaurant! The service this time was not as great s as some of the other times I’ve been. Food was good and specialty drinks were a little hit or miss.

Never had a bad experience. The coconut shrimp and churros were new to us and amazing. Just a note: outside seating is first come, first serve no matter what you pick in Open Table. We only had to wait a few minutes past our reservation though.

Great place to go out for a date. Great food, great drinks and nice atmosphere. Excellent value for the money. Ate inside this time but planning on coming back to eat outside with two other couples that enjoy this type of food too in a few weeks.

Excellent ceviche with a coconut twist. If you have a reservation for 6:00pm your table is ready at 6:00pm, not like many good restaurants in Raleigh, NC. Gonza constantly and consistantly patrols Tacos y Tequila to make sure you have an excellent dining experience. When we have out-of-town guests, this is our go-to place to show off the Raleigh food scene.

Despite being tremendously busy service was friendly and attentive. I did not feel rushed when asking questions regarding gluten and ordering. The food was great! and I had not issued with cross-contamination.

Went for Mother’s Day and even with a reservation we had to wait about 10 mins. The ambiance is fun and the food is great! My 5yo didn’t care for his plain cheese quesadilla, but my husband said it “tasted fine”. We hadn’t been here in a while, but the nice thing about Gonza is that the food is consistently good!!

The food is amazing, and the drinks never disappoint. I have been dozens of times, and it is still a favorite spot of mine. The Mexican Flag dish or the tacos del dia are usually the best there is!
