“Very Pleasant Dining Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

It’s a pleasure to find an upscale coffe shop that doesn’t serve high fat, sodium and greasy food.

Actually I would characterize Z Tejas as more than an upscale coffee shop. It’s more like an upscale Chili’s. It’s conveniently located off the Ray Road off ramp of the 1-10 in Chandler.
The food is fresh, the vegetables are crisp, and the ambiance at this location is great, light, airy, and at noon a Saturday, plenty of conviviality without the noise that so often accompanies these types of restaurants.They have a full bar and, on this visit, my friend and I were fortunate to be seated next to te bloody mary bar where a variety of condiments allowed you to "build your own.”

The menu provides many choices of dishes that feature authentic Southwestern, with a touch of Asian fusion cuisine with good value. Their specialty dishes are excellent. I had pepita crusted chicken, my guest had the pesto rubbed trout; both were outstanding. . Our appetites were satisfied while not leaving us with a feeling of being “stuffed.”

“Southwestern Grill at its Best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

While visiting the Phoenix, AZ area, friends of ours took us to this restaurant for what they described as the best Southwestern Food. It was very good, bordering between very good and excellent. Our waiter knew the menu well and recommended items for us. We were very satisfied. I do not remember the waiter's name, however I do remember the service. It was NICE.

“Delicious food and great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

We were greeted at the door and made to feel very welcome. For appetizers, we had the shrimp tostado bites and the Tejas Trio. Both were a tasty start to our meal. Our entrees were the pepita crusted chicken and chicken black bean salad. The food was well prepared and an ample amount. Our server was attentive. We wish there was one of these restaurants closer to home.

“Disappointing trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I have been to other Z'Tejas locations and decided to try this one. I have never had a really bad experience at Z'Tejas, and this one certainly was not awful by a long shot. But the food just wasn't as good as I was expecting. The waiter recommended the Santa Fe Smoked Chicken Enchilada. The dish wasn't bad, but it also wasn't outstanding. Just okay. The service was really excellent. The waiter was very attentive and helpful. The atmosphere was casual and comfortable and quite nice.

“Always Good Food and a Good Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We live in Casa Grande, but we drive up for this place often. The food is always fantastic and the service and atmosphere are always good also. This place knows how to use spices to make their food taste fantastic!
