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.

I tried this place last year and came back with friends. We all enjoyed it immensely. Upscale for a Mexican place, the menu has some very interesting and delicious dishes in a high ceilinged brick building with extensive bar and quiet atmosphere. Located right next to the Mill Street bar and restaurant strip, parking is available with a short walk... More

We stumbled upon this place after walking out of another because of poor service and dirty surroundings so, we may have been over-pleased to find this nice, quite bright, huge place just off Mill Avenue. Anyway, service was crisp and happy. We got menus and drinks as quickly as we could hope for. We shared a couple of starters, the... More

Great Food, delicious drinks and a nice atmosphere both outside and inside. We lucked out and were there for "happy hour". Lots of options on the menu and we were not disappointed

This is really good eating for a chain. Lot of variety on the menu, first rate service and very clean. The list of specialty margaritas and other cocktails was nice and diverse. I'd eat here two or three times a month if I wasn't worried about what the abundant supply of great chips and queso would do to my already... More
