Somewhat off the beaten path in Durham, this restaurant has excellent dishes with fresh ingredients. Service was friendly, prompt and professional. Atmosphere was funky and fun, inside and outside seating, bustling but not too loud.

Good service. Excellent meal. Got the Mexican Flag which was three flour tacos. Different color sauces over the tacos resemble the flag. Very flavorful as well as the salsa was thick and definitely home made.

Food and service are outstanding. Real neat decor and dining experience. The menu has a lot of different items on it. They are severed to you in a very decorative way.

We live a mile from Waverly Place and drove to the Durham Gonza cuz it’s so much better. Mike is the man and hooked us up with some great tequila and perfect recommendation for dinner! Durham trumps Cary in this case!

My wife and I walked to this cool taco and Mexican place while in Durham. Very friendly staff. Tortilla chips seem to be made from scratch and very good. We ate steak tacos that were very good as well and had some well made margaritas....More
