Loved the fajitas, simple menu, ambiance was amazing, and having a trumpet playing the birthday song for our birthday girl's celebration was the cherry on top of a great meal!

We visited the North Raleigh location after a long hike at the nature preserve. We used to frequent the Durham location frequently and were so sad when they closed. The food was so good and the decor was fun and fabulous! We were seated immediately and our waitress was so sweet. Definitely will
Be making the drive again to come back!

David was our outstanding waiter! We had 7 people in our party and 4 of us had Calentado, which isn’t even on the dinner menu but as usual they made it for us anyway! It was delicious, as usual. Gonza stopped by our table to chat with us. The decor was further enhanced by the addition of decked out manikins at every other table to make for simple but fun social distancing. What a unique touch! Always a wonderful time at Gonza!
