This is our family go to place for birthdays and special occasions. Its reasonable enough for the crowd that sometimes joins in, special enough you feel like you've had a treat, and consistent that you could take business associates, ladies lunch, or even hang at the bar with your pals. Its always hopping. We have been to them all, and... More

Stopped in here on a visit with family. It was a rainy day so everyone was eating inside. With tables close together it was VERY noisy, and hard to carry on a conversation. (On a nice day, it would be nice to eat on the deck or patio though). Food was good, but for people with some dietary concerns (low... More

We really enjoyed our meal at Z'Tejas. The drinks were poured just right which meant you didn't have to buy too many. Our food was excellent: guacamole, queso, and everything that followed was terrific. One of the best chicken quesadillas I've had in fact. Service was excellent even with our request to secure a taxi. Highly recommended.

Original location in an old victorian house. Colorful inside and quaint. Food and service are very good. Parking has been easy both times we went. Valet available in evening.

Went to Z'Tejas near the Arboretum last night with my parents, who for years had gone here for brunch after church. The food was still great, & recommend the Ruby Trout, our waiter was excellent, but oh, what a wait for no reason. They set aside a big table of 16 around 6:00. When we left around 7:15, the 16...

Being a chain, I thought average food. But it was quite nice. A converted house is now a small restaurant with bright colors for decorations. However, once seated, the food was the star. We started off with crab cakes with a jalapeno remoulade sauce (could of used a little more sauce) over some tasty type of coleslaw. They bring you... More

Sixth street is always busy but customer service goes a long way. The food tasted great but the service will keep me away.

Our dinner was great! Our waitress was very nice and extremely helpful. Each of us had a different dish and they were all yummy! The prices were very reasonable, as well. Would definitely recommend and will visit again when we're back in Austin.
