Gonzas has great food and the owner is so kind. He knows his locals by name and is more than welcoming. The Mexican mojito is a must if u enjoy a slightly spicy beverage. The steak tacos are a fave. This is a regular place we enjoy!!

My now wife and I went here once on a date. That was enough for us. Considering all the other restaurants this family owns and operates, we had faith in the place.

My husband doesn't even ask where I want to go anymore if he's taking me out for fun; he just knows to take me here. Everything I've ever had is delicious. It's two of my friends' absolute favorite too, so we go for girls' night also. It's a fun atmosphere for a group (little loud, but to be expected from... More

The food at Gonza is spectacular. It is not just great Latin food, it is GREAT food. The Carne Taco is tender and tastes like a grilled steak at a party. While it has a college vibe there were plenty of families with young children and everyone was happy. Do yourself a favor and go!

I enjoy the variety of drinks that they have at the bar! Fun Margaritas, all kinds of tequila to try and more. There food is also great I usually get tacos but have had many items on the menu and I have never been disappointed.

Food, Service, Decor were all excellent. Especially the dessert with pineapple, apple, etc. in pastry with vanilla ice cream on the side, I can't remember what it's called.

Tasty margaritas, fresh chips, Good guava and queso. Only complaint is when we were running low on chips, waitress took our bowl away (still held chips), suspending our app enjoyment, instead of bringing a new bowl.

The delicious food will satisfy your appetite while the decor and funky atmosphere will help you amused. Gonna Tacos y Tequila does the trick in the dining and entertainment departments. This restaurant is a Raleigh mainstay and we are lucky to have such a place in our city.

I was in Raleigh for a conference and had been traveling all day, so I was tired and hungry. I always search Trip Advisor before a trip and Gonza was #4 on the list. I had the Pollo tacos, guacamole, and house margarita and all if it was absolutely delicious. I will be returning again while in town.
