North Carolina - Raleigh - Gonza Taco Y Tequila (3 Photos) / by Dave Hileman

Unusual, creative, distinct, different are all words you might use to describe the decor and the atmosphere at Gonza TYT. And they would all be accurate. What they might also describe is the food; it is not your average Mexican fare. While they do begin with the obligatory bowl of chips what is distinctive is that the salsa they bring is excellent. The menu features innovative tacos and a host of other dishes. I am always focused on the tacos. Cindy’s choices vary. They serve three small tacos on a single plate with a side, for me it is usually the cilantro rice. Last time we were here I had the fish tacos that had Mahi-Mahi - excellent. There are 8 or ten different choices including pork, veggie, steak, seafood and chicken several ways.. Cindy had a dish with mole sauce that she loves, Enchiladas Con Mole. The prices are fair, the portions are satisfying the details are well done and the dessert, the one time we had it, was really good. I think they have three locations in the Raleigh area, not sure, because we go to the one near our home on the North side of town. It never disappoints and you cannot say that about many restaurants. And the decor, well, it adds a smile.
