We had a nice dinner at Gonza. The food was super tasty and service was good. The ambiance was FANTASTIC! I felt like I was in Quintana Roo! It was my husbands Birthday, and they did a great job of embarrassing him and gave him a shot. The prices are steep. They charge for hot sauce (though pretty amazing hot... More

Friendly, professional service. The kitchen never disappoints. Catch of the Day is always a delicious option. Shrimp Tacos and Chile Relleno are personal favorites. Coconut Rice is heavenly. Save room for the Chocolate Flan. You'll be glad you did!

Great Mexican food and lively atmosphere. The price is reasonable with great service. Gonna runs a very upbeat establishment with a personal touch. One our favorites for sure as a long time resident of Raleigh.

I give it 4 stars because overall it is good but not great. I have been going since the original opened. LOVE LOVE LOVED it, very authentic, delicious, and they had on the menu a Mystery Taco, which was wonderful. That is gone, along with the value. Very busy, great atmosphere, but loud and so overpriced.

We may have found the best Mexican style restaurant east of the Mississippi. Found the brand on TripAdvisor and then looked for one convenient to our hotel. (There are six.) Had some trouble finding it from the parking area since the sign was not prominent. Unique entrance, unique decor. Had about a 15 minute wait while having margaritas. Short menu,... More
