I've just discovered Gonzalo's last year and I love it! I have to go everytime I'm in Longview. It's not new, flashy, or trendy, but the food is consistently excellent and the owner is a wonderful man.

Gonzalo's has been serving fresh, hot Mexican food from the same location for over 30 years, and we have been going there when we were in the areafor most of those years, usually for lunch. If you are looking for fancy decor, you will be disappointed, but if you want good basic Mexican food (tacos, enciladas, tamales, rice, refried beans,... More
