Pleasant surprise in a strip mall

Z'Tejas has a great happy hour with high quality food choices and delicious drink specials. We went on a Wednesday around 5:30 and although it was crowded we were lucky enough to find a seat at the bar. The bartenders were very friendly and efficient and the overall atmosphere was great. Would definitely go back!

This ztejas is attached to scottsdale fashion square mall. They have a great outside patio right next to the main entrance. We were there for happy hour, try the chambord margarita it's so good. We got the ceasar salad and the ahi tuna dish. They were both really tasty. More important than the food though was the people watching!

We had a hard time finding this little jem, but when we did - wow! The happy hour special margaritas were delicious and all of the appetizers were awesome. We sat outside of the restaurant but under the mall canopy and it was a nice enviornment. I can't wait to go back during our next visit.

The front desk at Orange Tree Golf Resort gave us a coupon for a free appetizer. We used it for the tableside guacamole, which was a great start to an enjoyable dining experience. It was a week night and not crowded at all. The service was fast and friendly; drinks were cold, food was hot and tasty. What more could... More

This branch of Z-Tejas is located in Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall. We have eaten here 6-8 times. Our usual scenario is to see a movie with friends at the Harkins Fashion Square, and then walk 75 yards down the hall to the Z-Tejas where we have dinner. Nobody has to move their car. We love the fact that the restaurant... More

While Z-tejas is a chain, the food is very good. I started with the avacado shrimp bites appy which was fantastic. I had the mushroom enchilada which was also quite tasty. Margarita was decent but not one of the best that I've ever had.

My husband and I dined here in July 2014 while on vacation (rain day, so we stopped by the mall), and it was one of the best restaurant experiences we've had...especially for a mall restaurant! Although I cannot remember the waiter's name, the waiter was one of the best we've ever had. Excellent recommendations--must have the Chambord margarita--and very personable.... More

Wonderful spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of the mall. Service and food were excellent. It was a busy day and the waiter did not rush us and brought our food as we requested. A little different twist to Tex-Mex but would definitely recommend it. We will plan to return our next visit to the mall and... More
