Excellent food! Got the Mexican Flag, which had three different sauces, all of which were excellent. The salsa was also great!
I always enjoy the food and the atmosphere here and the service is excellent too.
Typically we have such good food and service but this time our waiter forgot our appetizer and the cheese on the relleno was melted dry.
However, the manager was incredible and fixed all of our issues and offered a free desert which was to die for!
Will we return? Absolutely! Everyone has an off day sometimes!
Love this place. Great for our whole family. Portions are just right. Only wish they served horchata ❤️
This restaurant had fantastic food and the wait staff was so friendly and helpful. The owners story of coming to Raleigh and starting the restaurant was very inspiring. I highly recommend it!
Best restaurant hands down!!!
A friend was visiting from out of town. I asked what type of restaurant she wanted to go to. She said "Mexican" and I knew immediately where to take her. Food, service and ambiance was perfect! I've never had a bad meal here!
Great food, great service, great atmosphere!
Great food as usual!
Excellent food, which is why I came back and took my mom who was visiting. It's really delicious. Knowing it was going to be busy, I booked reservations for 2 ahead of time, but I still had to wait 25-30 minutes to sit down. I really disappointed by that. I have no idea what the point of reservations is if we were going to wait that long.
More vegetarian options would be lovely! Overall, thought the food was good and the service and atmosphere was on point!
This is our go to place for amazing chicken and steak quesadillas. Always ask for Ashley if you want great service.
Here many times. It is simply the best Hispanic food known to man. A cross between Mexican with lots of South American influence.
We had a party of six and five enjoyed it. My food was not good ! It was very sweet and I told the waiter and he said he was sorry . Another lady came by and asked how was everyone. I got same response of sorry. The manager/owner asked how things were and I was told not suppose to be sweet and he was sorry. Never said I will not charge for that meal or let me get you something else . I paid my check and will not be going back.
Son was in from out of town. This is his favorite Mexican restaurant. Nice place for the family to gather.
What’s the point in making a reservation when you still have to wait half hour before being seated? They could have at least comp us with an appetizer or something.
Delicious and fun as always. Love this place
Gonza’s is one of our go-to spots for great food. The ambiance is cool with great lighting and fun/irreverent artwork. We have to order a bowl of their amazing queso each time we visit. The top shelf margarita is excellent. Our favorite items are the Mexican Flag, Pastor Tacos and Cameron Tacos... order the cilantro rice. Deserts at Mexican restaurants are typically nothing special, but we dream about Gonza’s chocolate flan and Talega de Platano. The staff is friendly and owner Gonza makes everyone feel like family.
Expected ok Mexican food, was surprised with GREAT Mexican food. The place is cute and unique and LOUD, so don't try to make business deals there but super worth it! Will go again!
Would not recommend to the gluten intolerant or the gluten free crowd.
Twice I have ordered fajitas stating as gluten free request, and twice my father-in-law has ended up with flour tortillas.
This time, we had a full exchange on the matter, got flour tortillas and my father-in-law had eaten two by the time I noticed! I confirmed with the waitress, she took the tortillas away and brought the right ones, but I'm not happy this can't get gotten right the first time.
My favorite “go to”place! Always vibrant and delicious!
We frequent Gonza all the time and love it. This reservation was for a birthday and there were two items of note: 1. we had not had our waitress before and she was not the most friendly or dynamic, especially for a birthday and 2. the staff usually sings for birthdays (and the staff confirmed that they knew it was a birthday reservation as noted at time of booking) but they didn't sing :( Nonetheless, it was a fun and delicious dinner - the birthday girl was happy.
Food was stellar as always. The kitchen staff here makes the place great, no doubt. No one comes close anywhere nearby. Can be a little too loud for casual conversation, but food makes it worth talking louder than usual. Service can be spotty depending on the server (three of four dishes removed after dinner and 4th plate sat for a quite a while before we had to track down server for a "to go" box and to get the check). Biggest complaint would be how very tiny the bar area is. For a "tequila bar" - there's not much "bar" area for enjoying drinks before dinner. And between people walking back and forth from outside seating to the bathrooms and folks picking up take-out orders, it's just not that enjoyable being at the bar.
We are regulars at Gonza’s. This time we decided to ask friends to join us. What a great place for a friends date!
Good food, great margaritas that aren't watered down, cool decor, a bit noisy on the patio but you can still hear conversations ok. The only thing I would suggest is to add more vegetarian items to the menu. My Vegetariano taco was muy bueno, but I'd probably visit more often if I knew there was more of a vegetarian variety. Just something to consider.
I had their short rib tacos, as recommended by our waitress if I was looking for something flavorful and a bit spicy. They were excellent and probably not what I would have picked, but I will be sure to do so again! Their chips and chunky salsa were great, we also got the guacamole. The tacos came with a cup of chicken tortilla soup that was very good. Last but not least, I had a margarita on the rocks, no salt - it was fantastic, great sour mix.
Ganza and staff are always a top pick for Latino food!
When we come to Gonza, the owners and staff make us feel like family. For that reason, we keep coming back again and again! All of their locations are wonderful but we especially love the North Raleigh vibe. We have celebrated milestone birthdays, school achievements & everyday accomplishments at Gonza and plan to do so for a long time.
Good food. Well prepared. Eclectic environment. Not an ideal place for a quiet conversation. Great neighborhood spot. Very good value.
Always great food and service. I have been before and will go again and again and again.
Hands down one of the best and authentic Chilli Relleno.
Food was very good. Tequila menu was interesting. Service was prompt.
As usual the food was amazing. However, the service was not the best. We have never had a problem even with large groups. We have been there with 15 people before and been in and out in 45 minutes. This time was much slower and the server was just not as attentive as we are used to. I will return as I hope this is not a recurring issue.
Great service, food and atmosphere as usual, as expected! Accommodated a few extra diners handily! Thank you for the start of a great evening!
Always a festive atmosphere with great food and prompt service!
Gonza never fails to deliver. Great atmosphere and in my opinion the best Mexican cuisine in Raleigh.
Really good tasting food...would have liked more food for the $.
Gonza’s is the best Mexican in Raleigh by far. The quality of food, service and ambience never disappoint. I highly recommend it.
They offer the most consistently delicious “Mexican” food in the area. It’s good quality and a little inventive. They could up their game on the margaritas though. Jose was a great server and so courteous - he helped my elderly mother all the way out to the street.
