Only Place We Could Get A Table!

Slightly off the beaten track in downtown Tempe, we secured a table for 5 here on a busy Saturday evening when everywhere else was fully booked. Its a large restaurant and has a varied menu which is handy if, like me, you are not a big fan of Mexican dishes. (Its an age thing!!) Food and service... read more

Had an enjoyable dinner with just average food. Menu is a little all over the place and less Mexican than comfort food oriented. Service was pleasant if a little uneven.

Not a big Mexican food fan but this restaurant won me over. Food was fresh and the cornbread yes the cornbread was memorable! Add a little butter and you could almost eat the pan as a meal. The margarita was delicious and it is not a light weight drink (I only had one and that was enough! Must try the... More

Granted, I am from the south, but holy mother of tequila, that was awesome. The shrimp appetizers are worth getting just to eat by themselves. We came back at HH and had cucumber vodka mules, another suggestion. Friendly, nice wait staff and bartenders.

Z Tejas is well-known for their dangerously good margaritas! They are to die for. Great fajitas as well and love the cornbread prior to the meals!

Stopped by before the Sun devil game and we were most impressed with the manager who went out of his way to take care of us during an incredibly busy time. We really enjoyed the delicious complimentary cornbread before our drinks were served. We really enjoyed the Street Tacos and the presentation that they were brought to us. Great time... More

Nice atmosphere and $5 margaritas on Happy Hour. The food is good, but not spectacular. Although the steak tacos were out of this world - so get those!
