Good room! The wait staff was quick, efficient, and very pleasant. The food was superb. I would return and take friends, family, enemies. They would all enjoy it.

Z'Tejas is an excellent choice. Margaritas are a hit and a must along with corn bread at table. Staff is friendly and food is very good. We love the salmon and daily specials are always a good selection.

This is a chain and I reviewed the Scottsdale location favorably, but Tempe needs to step up their game a bit. The Art show on Mill Ave takes place every year and the area is crowded. The restaurant was understaffed both in the kitchen and on the floor. The server disappeared after serving our lunch My salad was as expected... More

Z'Tejas was recommended to us for dinner and happy hour. First of all, happy hour ends at 7 PM, which is a pleasant surprise. We had the Hard Day's Margaritas at $5.00 each vs. $9.00 regular price. Needed to start off with 2! Ordered the pork chop stuffed with chorizo, nice flavor and not hot. My business associate had the... More

Had dinner here last night. I had fajitas and they were outstanding. Great Atmosphere sitting outside on a perfect late fall evening. The service was attentive and the prices reasonable. Parking in the garage was expensive, but worth the price for this meal.

The appetizer portion of the Street Tacos (plus chips and salsa) was plenty of food and it was delicious! Corn tortillas were fresh and tasty and the verde sauce had a nice bite combined with cilantro. Great location and great prices too.

This restaurant is relatively close to the airport and has excellent food with a great atmosphere. The waiters were very attentive and offered great suggestions. The guacamole was by far the best I have ever had. Happy hour prices and servings made it even better! Parking is challenging, so the free valet is a nice touch.
