Great establishment right by ASU in a trendy spot that's a bit tricky to get to. Parking is free valet when validated. There was parking close, but absolutely no spaces available, and we were there at 6:30pm on a Monday. They only had one valet driver the evening I went so it was a few minutes wait for our large...

Our daughter in Tempe introduced us to this restaurant on our last trip. It was a little tricky to get to but once there the food was amazing. We all ate southwestern cuisine and it was very flavourful. The portions were generous and the cost very reasonable. I would put this on my list to visit again.

We had a great dinner at Z'tejas. There was a great variety, and we had the $5 blood mary bar, which was EXCELLENT! I wish there was one closer, as we visited this location on vacation.

We have eaten here several times. If you want a good meal in downtown Tempe in a restaurant with great service and great surroundings, Z'tejas is a solid choice. The menu offers Southwest inspired cuisine with an American fusion twist, along with some Cajun and pizza. The food is excellent as is the service.

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.

Visited here a couple of times. The service is good, the drinks are well made and the food is OK. But it is definitely a case of quantity over quality.

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
