Always fresh tasting, original, and filling. The service was great.... Steve, you did great! Very good food and drinks..... Fresh and very tasty. The service is more than... More

It was a cold, rainy weekend afternoon. What better way to warm up with Tortilla Soup. Just the right amount of spice kick and cheesy. The grilled shrimp/avocado appetizer is a must try as are the chips with salsa trio. I can't wait to try more selections once I get back home and visit our Z'Tejas in Phoenix.

We had a delicious fun atmosphere lunch starting with the complimentary cornbread. I order the margerita flight (3 good size frozen margeritas- Lime, Mango, and Strawberry flavor). There queso dip was so good. I liked the outside sitting area,

Although it's not bad food, I don't get the hype about this place. I used to live a couple blocks away, so I've been a few times for lunch, dinner, and drinks. I always found there to be way too much sauce on everything I ordered, and considering there was so much I would think I'd walk away remembering lots... More

Z'Tejas downtown on 6th and at the Arboretum have been my go-to spots for over 20 years. I have always loved their chips, salsa, and margaritas. Since I no longer eat animal products, my choices are quite limited. The spot downtown has a vegetarian/gluten-free menu but still lacks very many options without dairy. They are always happy to make a... More

Great food and view! Service was a bit skimpy. Early evening probably provides best views for this location. Try the salmon!!!

Z'Tejas has always had good food, some dishes are excellent. My husband and I went last night and got a wonderful table on the patio. We had a beautiful view of the Austin hills and sunset. I had the Chile Relleno, always a favorite, with delicious smoked chicken, raisins, pecans, cheese, etc. with a yummy sauce. It was served with... More

I have loved this place for years. There are several around the country now, but this one is a more unique house-like location on the not-so-cheesy end of Sixth Street in Austin. There are several drinks and dishes that are unique that I find myself craving every now and then throughout the year. And I live in Fort Worth, so... More
