Gonza Tacos y Tequila is set to open their third Triangle location in downtown Durham at 604 Fernway Avenue, in the West Village Complex, this Tuesday February 3rd. I had chance to get a preview of the new location on Saturday night. I loved the cool atmosphere of the space and the great food. With it’s Colombian influence and eclectic Dia de los Muertos décor, Gonza Tacos y Tequila is far from your stereotypical Mexican restaurant. There are no #18 ground beef specials on this menu; instead you’ll find items like Ceviche del Dia, Ensalada del Huerto, Chiles Endiablados and Callo de Hacha Tacos. As well as unique desserts, like their Flan de Coco and Talega de Platano – so popular it’s even been featured in the News & Observer as a “Specialty of the House.”
Along with a robust offering of tequilas, Gonza Tacos y Tequila features local beers on tap, as well as creative drink specials that change weekly. Additional features at the new location include a great bar, private dining area & spacious patio seating that is pet friendly.

Gonza is open for lunch Tues-Fri 11:30am-2:00pm and dinner Tue-Thur 5-9:30pm, Fri-Sat 4-10pm, and Sunday 4-8:30pm. Closed Mondays.
