Gonza is our number one go to place for family get-together's and celebrations. While waiting for your food which is always excellent, their chips and salsa can't be beat. The wait staff is always friendly and the atmosphere relaxing. There is also a gluten free menu available upon request. Needless to say, I couldn't recommend them more.

if you have not tried this place, you are missing a happening. the food is fabulous and so reasonably priced, it is ridiculous. the atmosphere is chaotic but fun to be involved in. the only negative is that so many others have found this fun and delightful place. you will have to wait, but IT IS WORTH IT!!!

I have had lunches and dinners here are both are good. The staff is friendly and service good. They can get very busy at both times. Occasionally, I have had a dish that was a bit too spicy for me.

The only reason I can not give 4 stars is the wait to get in. And I do not mean going to the door and giving your name. Nope, I mean making a reservation. If you want prime time, then plan your meal out several weeks in advance as trying to get reservations at the last minute means you will... More

My good friend introduced me to Gonza and this is our go to place when we meet for lunch! Have tried several things on the menu but the Carne tacos are the best! Soft, fresh tortillas with tender, perfectly seasooned steak. Favorite thing on the menu! And their salsa is perfection!

I am not a huge fan of Mexican food. This is definitely not the normal boring food. From the chips and salsa to dessert, everything is delicious! Plus, you get a cute bobble head to alert you when your table is ready. We go here every chance we get!

With so many mediocre Mexican places around, it was refreshing to find Gonza T & T. We sat at the bar, had a well made drink, and asked the bartenders about the menu, while sampling warm chips and a delicious salsa. Ended up with fish tacos and a chile rellleno (not fried) stuffed with pulled dark chicken. Everything had a... More
