We dined on a weekend, early evening. The food was just ok, overpriced for tacos, to be totally honest, and the service left something to be desired. High point? The extensive tequila selection.

First visit to Gonza was fun. Loved the atmosphere. Food was very good…a little pricey, but they had better quality ingredients than other Mexican restaurants we've been to before. Daily chef specials, as well. Wait can be awhile, but felt worth it!

Love the food but it's so noisy that it is not conducive to have a conversation. Would eat there as long as I could sit outside where it is a little quieter.

We went here to celebrate a birthday. We had a group of 6. Food was amazing, authentic as was the décor and atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to go back.

Food is great, service is superb. Serving sizes not your usual x-large, so there is room for an appetizer

My friend- girl and I went out for some much needed girl time. It was a rainy Friday night and the restaurant was not busy at all. Service was great and food delicious!!! Will be back over and over; highly recommended. We were at the Wake Forest location.

Great gathering place for incredible food in a fun atmosphere. I love everything about this place. Can't go wrong with anything on this menu. It is a local favorite and stays busy, so go early or be prepared to wait. It's definitely worth it! Fresh, flavorful food!

I cannot remember the last time I went to a different Mexican restaurant in Raleigh. This is our go to. It is. To your typical over salted, extra greasy, mushy chai. Like Mexican food. Here, the food is fresh, tasty and has an original spin on the big flavors. From the free chips and salsa - not from a jar... More

The atmosphere is fun, the food is good, and prices are midrange. Our son and fiance celebrated their engagement there with friends and family dropping in. Good locale for that.

We love the atmosphere at Gonza! The tacos are always good, but the best items on the menu are Mexican Flag (enchilada trio), Chilaquiles Verde, and the passion fruit margaritas. Excellent service and consistency in quality!
