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

I'm a huge fan of Z's, their NY Strip is to die for. We stopped at the Scottsdale restaurant for lunch and very pleased once again. We shared the crab cake salad and blacked catfish tacos, it was very good. Highly recomend this place. I'll be back.

The cocktails, especially the Chambord margarita, were really good. The cornbread was excellent. Everything else was good, but nothing I would probably go back for with all of the other texmex options in the area. The indoor dining area was loud, almost too loud to talk to the people at my table and the "patio" areas were either an extension... More

I was at the restaurant last night with a large group of women that included two large tables. Our server was friendly, engaged and made excellent suggestions. I'm working on going vegetarian, so he assisted with making my meal which included rice and beans more to my liking. It was excellent. My sister had the trout and it was served... More
