Food is tasty. They were able to accommodate my paleo inclinations with no fuss and the tab was reasonable. We've been going to the different locations over the past 10 or so years and have liked everyone. Some really great happy hour food and drink.

Love. Love. This is a must have everytime I go to Scottsdale. My trip is never complete wtihout a trip to Z'Tejas, an order of the Grilled Shrimp & Guacamole Tostada Bites, and a (few) swirl Margaritas. The atmosphere is great, a fun place to meet friends.

You have to get the Tejas Trio for your appetizer, it is amazing! Also, I recommend the ACHIOTE CHICKEN CHOPPED SALAD, you will not be disappointed! The ambiance and staff are great and the food is not too spicy. Great choice with friends or family.

Loved the diverse menu and the food was excellent. Located within the Fashion Square Mall (which I don't love), but this place is always reliable for yummy fare.

Stopped in here with husband and kids one night since we all felt like tex mex. Menu had the usual suspects (burritos, fajitas, different tacos, a bunch of variations on guacamole, etc.) and they tasted the usual way. However, the service was fantastic. The servers bent over backwards to make sure we were taken care of and satisfied. Would come... More

Everything was good, but not great. Had to pay for chips. They were out of Corona. A little more american style than we normally desire.

Free skillet cornbread....'nough said. OK margaritas. I like mine on the rocks and the bartender takes his rocks seriously. I had , at most, a few tablespoons of actual margarita. Come for happy hour. That's the best deal. Get the street tacos, (steak with sliced avocado. Small but tasty.

All four people in our party loved Z Tejas. The atmosphere was fun, the food delicious, and the service was excellent. The prices are very reasonable, and you feel like you got excellent value. Also, half price wine on Monday and Tuesday. The cornbread is a treat!

I have been there many times for lunch and dinner. They have a varied assortment of meals with a Southwest theme. Each menu item is their own invention, so order different things and share. Never had a bad meal in over 20 visits to their 3 restaurants in the area.

"Free" cornbread was a nice surprise! Tortilla soup was tastey as was the jerk chicken salad. Sat on "patio" so we could people watch!
