    Always a fun atmosphere. Food always tasty. Wish the food wouldn’t come out so quickly. Server was delayed in coming to take our drink orders and then food came out immediately after we got our drinks. We were not rushed along at all which was nice.

    Always a great meal! We drive from Durham because the Gonza there so sadly closed. Well worth the drive. Great ambiance, super fun. Ask to try their homemade hot sauce! Amazing. Highly reccomend the Mexican Flag.

    Gonza continues to be the best Mexican restaurant in Raleigh. The owner, Gonza Salamanca, visits every table to make sure you are satisfied with your total dining experience. This restaurant is consistent in every aspect...servers, food quality, presentation, beverages and deserts. It is family-friendly and a neighborhood treasure.

    Gonza Tacos y Tequila is one of my favorite places to eat - mainly because the food is so delicious! The enchiladas are different from any others that I've had anywhere. I highly recommend them. The restaurant ambiance is inviting, dimly lit, and relaxing. The staff is polite and accommodating. There is nothing more that I could want in a perfect date-night location.

    It was not communicated that a 5 person booth didn’t exist. When we added two to our party — in advance — we should have been told at checkin. A table was fine. Just talk to us. A 30+ minute wait, plus another 30 for drinks was ridiculous. Very disappointed in time management for the experience. Food has shrunk but was tasty. Waiter was distracted all night.
