Dinner at Gonza was amazing! We loved our shrimp tacos, shrimp fajitas, and plantains!! The peppers were sweet and delicious. The plantains were just perfect- soft yet firm and perfectly sweet. Emily, our server, delivered top-notch service. We can’t wait to come back!

Our four plates were terrific. We had a chicken and cheese quesadilla, chilaquiles, chile relleno with carnitas, and carnitas tacos. All dishes were flavorful. The server was prompt and courteous.

This place was recommended to us, and the food was incredible. The chicken enchiladas with Mole sauce was the absolute best I've ever had. I let others at my table try It, and they all agreed. Super super good. The margaritas were also amazing, and...More
