We had a great waiter, Julio. The tableside was great, the featured Peppy Z Margarita was also great. Prices were reasonable for the location and quality. We sat outside by a heater and enjoyed the view of the river walk. Our dinners were served as requested and tasted great.

Definitely try the queso, it's wonderful. It also comes with a couple different varieties of their salsa, and the fire roasted salsa is fantastic. It almost had me thinking it was marinara sauce, but after a few seconds you definitely pick up the exotic salsa flavor. I had the combo enchiladas (lunch portion) and it was more than enough to...

Tableside guacamole best I have had. Both salsas were incredible. Fish tacos and beef fajitas delicious. After a long convention day, tequila menu made me smile. Twitch, casual_joker

My husband, his son and I were strolling along The Riverwalk, seeking a nice place for lunch. We spotted the Iron Cactus across the river, decided it looked OK and crossed to try it out. Happily for us, it was much more than OK. We each ordered something different (except for the Margaritas; we each had one of those) --... More

This is second time eating here in two days. Their food is amazing and the prices are not bad. Wonderful flavors in the salsa and the meals. Nice experience along the river walk as well. Great friendly staff. An overall wonderful experience.

My favorite meal during the long MLK weekend. Went here with the wife on a Saturday night for dinner. Sat inside because it was cold. Started and ended with outstanding service from Carl our server but I will end with that later. Started with Z Tequila drinks (had two each). Refreshing choice suggested by Carl. Next was the table side... More

My husband and I walked from the Omni to this restaurant on the riverwalk around 3:30 pm. We were quickly seated at a comfortable outdoor table. Happy hour consisted of margarita, beer, and maybe wine. We choose the margaritas and they were very good. Queso was award winning, per their menu, so we thought, why not. It was served in... More

I couldn't stop eating the guacamole, but then the main course came. Camarones a la Parilla were awesome. My wife had the chili relleno. Not the best I have tasted, but definitely worth a try. The I couldn't stop serving myself. Awesome Z Best margaritas
