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.
Excellent and Always Fun! Gonza Tacos y Tequila - North Raleigh lives up to its reputation for being fun, friendly and a great place to eat for modern mexican dishes. Love the eclectic decor that livens up the place but is not overwhelming. Our waitress took a few moments to explain the different photos splashed around the walls. The service is impressive for a casual setting. We have been there enough to have different waitresses and they all have been on the mark with taking orders, drink suggestions and service. As for the food, start with a margarita along with some queso, salsa and chips to share. The tacos are a big hit and offer a great variety. The shrimp tacos and pulled pork are perfectly spiced and don't be fooled by the portions, its enough to fill you up. The cilantro rice is a nice side, although the coconut rice is my favorite with the pulled pork. Reservations are suggested on the weekends, so plan ahead or expect to wait with your bobble head. Either way, Gonza is worth the wait and a great way to start the weekend.
This is likely the best upscale Mexican food in Eastern NC. The owner is typically onsite and the quality of food and service shows. You won't be disappointed.
Loved the atmosphere in this hip-feeling taqueria with a twist. Menu was inventive and inspiring. Food was well-executed. Really fun evening!!
We had family visiting and took 7 people. We got there a little early for our reservation but were seated immediately. The food was excellent and our server was great. Overall wonderful dinner experience and our family loved the food and the decor.
Service is outstanding - very fast and friendly. Food is flavorful and fresh. Best mole sauce anywhere. Steak is delicious in every item, especially the El Platano. Soup is a must. No better Mexican/Columbian food.
Very lively restaurant. Obviously very popular. Food was delicious but unfortunately mine was lukewarm. I think it sat while they fixed my wife’s fajitas, which were pipping hot. Servers were very accommodating but I think covered too many tables at once.
Amazing. Great food. Love the owner. Makes you feel like family.
We usually are very pleased with the food here. During out
R last visit, however, although we ordered the same dishes that we ordered when we last visited, everything was extremely spicy even though it was not supposed to be or had been previously. It made our dishes not as enjoyable.
Love Gonza! Always consistently good food and drinks!
One of our favorites & has been for years!!! Great place for get together with friends for yummy food & great margaritas!!
Great as always.
Gonza is always fun for me and my friends, we love to celebrate our various birthdays here, throughout the year, always will recommend Gonza!
Its great like it always is. The only thing that is bad, is the music is to loud sometimes.
