Excellent service coupled with fresh, expertly made and delicious food like the pescado tacos or the chicken quesadilla or the chilequiles roja. Michayla is an incredibly attentive server who remembers preferences and never lets your drinks or chip bowl empty!

Others keep copying Gonza but only the original continues to deliver. Mexican is new to NC. As a native Texan we take it for granted. Nice to get quality Mexican dishes in Raleigh and an enormous Tequila selection. It makes all the difference when the managers LOVES and KNOWS Tequila. I'd love to host live salsa music nights at Gonza with Tequila specials and floating food samples. Definitely has late night party potential.

We always love eating at Gonza's. The only negative for this night was they were out of guacamole! Yes, hard to believe a Mexican restaurant would be out of guacamole. I guess they didn't buy enough avocados? I mean, it doesn't take but a few minutes to make guacamole.

They pared salmon with cucumber and hot pepper and pineapple on unique small tortillas and served it with a delightful, fresh side salad with a pear slice. This was so tasty. They also have the best salsa anywhere, all delivered with incredible service each time...in this case by Caroline who really gives attention to making sure the customer is satisfied with the meal and experience.

Well here I go again. This is without question one of my favorite places to dine. This was a business lunch and it worked out great. It was actually quiet and the food was great. It always is. I had the chicken quesadilla. Just the right amount of food for a lunch. With the chips and salsa it makes a very filling lunch.

Food was awesome as usual. A tense expensive. The only issue is we feel rushed for placing orders and moved in/out. I think we were in for a total of 35 minutes. Party of 3 at 630 on a Friday. Wasn't packed like it usually is but instead of asking if we wanted more drinks---it was desert, no, check and she paced back and forth to see if we had put card in can...and after we did pay she took can - which we thought unusual....wouldn't you wait for us to leave? I appreciate wanting to turn tables - but would also like to relax and enjoy my evening out.

Gonza is one of my favorite places to dine. When anyone suggests we dine out Gonza is always at the top of the list. I love the appetizers, entrees and deserts. The tequila is pretty darn good too. My favorite is the Chili Relleno. My drink is the Cabo Wabo Reposado. If you haven't been here you need to try it.

Normally I would have scored Gonza much higher. This was an off night for them. Our food took more than 45 minutes to arrive and when it did half of our entrees were not correct and some of our food was cold. Gonza is one of favorite restaurants so we will return. Hope the service will be better next time!

We had expected more based on prior reviews. Food was okay. The shrimp tacos were good. The tacos with the braised short rib beef was not what I would have expected. I had expected the short rib beef to be shredded and somewhat lean. The beef was cubed (which was odd) and had pieces of fat attached to it. Not at all appetizing.
The food was delicious. My side salad ha ...
The food was delicious. My side salad had heart of palm and watermelon with some yummy balsamic vinaigrette. Wow it was amazing for a side salad. Our waitress was great and checked on us often. Everyone ordered different types of tacos and enjoyed every bite!

This was my first time at Gonza Tacos y Tequila (Wake Forest Location). The food was great very authentic . The waiter helped us with great things to eat from the menu. He was very helpful. The food was great and the service. We will come back.
Lively but too noisy for conversation
If you want Colombian/Mexican food with some interesting things on the menu in a space so noisy conversation is difficult this is the place. We went with 4 couples and conversation was impossible. Food was fine. Service was hurried but all right.
Always a treat to dine at Gonza!
We usually go to the location at Sawmill but it fills fast especially on a Fri night so we came to W Forest instead. Love the atmosphere, food is always great! One caveat about this location; there is not much parking so you may have to walk a little ways! It's worth it though!
Gonza Always Delivers
We always enjoy going to Gonza (whether Wake Forest location or Raleigh on). The food is delicious and the portions are perfect. The decor in the restaurant is awesome. Staff always friendly and spot on. So glad we have a place like this in the area.
