Beautiful decor, amazing food with super attentive waitstaff. Thoroughly impressed with the place. Very reasonably priced as well. Even my 8 year old who is super picky loved it.

We met some friends visiting Raleigh from out of town and I have been wanting to try Gonza for some time. We were meeting for lunch, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity. Located right across from NC State campus and on Packapalooza Saturday,...More

Service was good, but nothing to write home about. Drinks were fair--I mean a margarita at a Mexican restaurant should be outstanding. Food was good but definitely smaller portions--not a bad thing as I did not leave there feeling stuffed!

Tacos were good, but pricey for portion. Nice atmosphere, but loud. We went a hour before closing and the service was not wonderful since staff was cleaning.

We walked in 5 minutes early. The building was open but they were not ready to receive guests. They sat us anyway. As my husband and I chatted we heard the festive music. We could have been in Mexico with the chatter of the workers,...More

A great little restaurant across from N C State. The carnita tacos (3) were delicious. My appetizer was the guacamole, and was wonderful. Service was prompt and attentive, but not intrusive. Prices are reasonable for the area. An excellent choice fo a quick lunch.

I've been twice and had a great meal and a great experience both times. It's inspired Mexican food that's way better than what passes for Mexican at most restaurants. We ate at the bar once and were seated the other visit. Both times the service...More

It is rare to leave a Mexican restaurant not feeling over stuffed, but at Gonza they seem to focus on quality, not quantity. Highly recommend.

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.
