I LOVE Mexican food and had wanted to visit here for quite some time. I was NOT disappointed! I love that they can take traditional dishes and add their own personal flair. We all bought something different and shared amongst our group. Everyone seemed to...More

Love this place! Have been several times, with family/kids and also for date night. LOVE the margaritas. Everything is delicious and lots of unique flavor/ingredient combinations. I also love that they have outdoor seating.

Met friends for an early dinner. We enjoyed drinks and appetizers while waiting for our entrees. Service was patchy.

We visited Gonza with our daughter. Being from AZ we thought we were in for typical Mexican style food. We LOVED the food. Fresh and delicious. We had the fish tacos and chicken fajitas. All wonderful. The passion fruit margaritas are very smooth. Service was...More

Being from the Southwest, didn’t think I’d enjoy North Carolina Mexican food. Here are my thoughts. The salsa was basically just tomato—not much taste, could use some cilantro, jalapeño, garlic & salt. Habanero sauce the waitress suggested fixed that— added some spice & fire! The...More
