About
With its Colombian influence and eclectic Dia de los Muertos décor, Gonza Tacos y Tequila is far from your stereotypical Mexican restaurant. On their menu you’ll find items like Ceviche del Dia, Ensalada del Huerto, Chiles Endiablados and Callo de Hacha Tacos. As well as unique desserts like Flan de Coco and crowd favorite, Talega de Platano. And what would a legitimate tequila joint be without a robust offering of over 75 types of tequilas. All Gonza Tacos y Tequila restaurants also feature local beers on tap, as well as creative drink specials.

We frequent this restaurant when we are in Raleigh. The short rib tacos are to die for and the rice and beans have a flavor that I have yet to find anywhere else. Great place, great staff, great food!

Upscale, clean attractive dining room, helpful and friendly wait staff. The food is terrific - tasty and very attractively served. The tacos as on the small size, but delicious, and the "side" which comes with the order is on the large size.

This is by far the best tacos I have ever had in my life. I wish they had a location in central Florida. The tacos are rich in flavor! The chicken tortilla soup is amazing as well. The flavor has an awesome lingering flavor.

Stopped here simply because it was so close to our hotel. Ordered a quesadilla with chicken and nachos with pork to split with my two children. Food was delicious. Great service as well. Great place to eat if you’re visiting the campus or surrounding area.

This place serves Latin food, and the interior of the place is decorated with macabre dia de los muetros figures and wall decorations in bright colors. Appetizers came immediately, and the con queso and guacamole were fresh and tasty. Our tacos were also good and...More

Gonza really knows how to prepare Mexican food. Go on a nice day and enjoy a seat next to the street. I love the pork tacos. My wife prefers the tinga chickin salad.
