Although I live in Chapel Hill, I venture into Durham from time to time. I've recently discovered that Downtown Durham was some pretty amazing restaurants, so I thought I would share with you one of my favorites: Gonza Tacos y Tequila.
Gonza has some amazing food, but the environment and details are really what set it apart. From the menus to the details on the glass, this restaurant maintains a consistent Day of the Dead skull vibe. The inside has the perfect ambience of dark with plenty of lighting to see.
I've been here twice so far, and I haven't had to wait to be seated or on the food either time. The service is great and I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone in the area. The last time I was there, I ordered the pollo tacos, and they were delicious. I'm thinking about ordering the chilaquiles verdes next time, so I'll be sure to let you know how they taste.
Leave me a comment if you've ever been to Gonza, or if you have any restaurant recommendations in the Triangle. Stay tuned, xo Lauren.
