So austin! So perfect! Go when Javiar Chapara and Salud are playing. These guys are world class. Check out the Salud website to see their creds. Sit on the deck by the band, smell the wisteria blooming, order street taco, shrimp tostadas and a cocktail. Feel lucky.

My family and I love Z'Tejas. I don't think we've ordered anything that we don't like from here. Their tostado bites, street tacos, and guac are fantastic!!! They also have a pretty good happy hour and Sunday brunch.

My husband and I were at an organized event at z'Tejas in the banquet area, so this may not be typical of how things work in the restaurant. The room was filled to capacity, which is a challenge for any facility. Open bar had good service and my frozen margarita was great. The hot appetizers were delicious; I tasted shrimp... More

My husband and I had a late dinner here while visiting. There are so many choices for Mexican or Southwestern food in Austin and we chose Z'Tejas because it was within walking distance of our rental home. It was the perfect choice! We started with margaritas and the Bottomless Basket of Chips & Salsa which is served with warm cornbread... More

This is the third z Tejas I've eaten at and the food never disappoints. This place was very busy for lunch and I'm glad we walked since parking can be hard to find and reverse angle parking doesn't seem to make much sense on a busy street. Food was great but restaurant looks like it sees a lot of traffic... More

I went to Z'Tejas while I was in Texas last week after work with a few friends. It was my first time there. We ordered a load of appetizers and some millionaire margaritas. The food was excellent and so was the margarita. We got so much food we did not need dinner but next trip I plan on going back... More

We went to a wedding reception here and it was fantastic! We also went back a few nights later for dinner and the food & service are outstanding.
