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.

Wide range of Mexican, Texan & South Western cuisines in downtown Austin. Great setting with plenty of atmosphere inside. You've just got to try the catfish! Love it!

My sister relocated to the Austin area about 2 years ago and while in town on business we got together. She suggested Z'Tejas and I'm glad she did. We were there on a Wednesday night. Of course she got stuck in traffic (what else is new for a major American city) and while waiting for her, I sat down at... More

We were there for a quick lunch. The Queso was amazing with rich cheese flavors and just the right amount of heat to perk up the dish. The Enchiladas and Grilled Salmon were good but not outstanding. We will certainly go back when in the neighborhood, but Austin has so many excellent Tex-Mex restaurants that we won't make a special... More

Z'Tejas has an fun Tree House Atmosphere, with great food, and friendly service. The bar menu features several varieties of Margaritas. We tried the classic which was very good. We started with the Seared Ahi Tuna appetizer which was very tasty. The trout salad was excellent and good sized. The prices are reasonable, the food is fresh and includes free... 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.
