Great service at the bar. Steak fajitas were ok. Small portions and I had to ask for more. Too much peppers and onions and not nearly enough meat. Bartenders were hopping and gave excellent service. It got busy quickly. I recommend getting there early.

Wonderful atmosphere- great menu - in Austin on Business and had dinner there twice it was so good. Happy hour deals are awesome and a real deal. The shrimp appetizer is AMAZING. Dinner for 4 with drinks, appetizers and dessert for $150 including tip - can't beat the value. Our server Gabriel was great - awesome service all around.

We've been going to Z Tejas forever when visiting Austin, and it's still the best Brunch in Austin, hands-down! Every dish is delicious (migas, my personal favorite) and all come with their fresh fruit cup and ginormous muffin: both are good, but I dream about the Banana Nut muffin for weeks after. That good. Charming, airy, very Austin place, a... More

My fiancée and I were here in Austin over July 4th weekend and stumbled upon this place and were very happy! Reasonable prices, good portions that will fill you up but won't leave you feeling too full, and THAT CORNBREAD. Get a few orders of it. For three bucks it's worth it. The outdoor patio was quiet and romantic too!

Z Tejas has always been a favorite of mine with their shrimp tostado bites and their jalapeño margarita. Great staff & although usually crowded, they are efficient and friendly!

Every time we're in Austin, we go to Z'Tejas. We love the food, service and atmosphere. Our brunch was very good as usual. I had the spinach and mushroom omelette and my husband had the chicken hash - both great. Of course, their muffins are wonderful and the Bloody Mary's hit the spot. Great place.

The Staff were great, we sat outside on the patio and watched the traffic. The little guy spraying the birds to keep them away from the deck was entertaining. The food was good. Nice visit.

After a rainy driver from San Antonio, we needed a mid-afternoon lunch after checking in to our b&b. We walked down the street and first checked out Clark's Oyster Bar. We love oysters, but have never been asked to pay $4.00 @ for them, even in New York or San Francisco. So we walked a bit further (one block) and... More

Big party of 8 with a reservation was handled by two waiters. Drinks came quickly, refills were prompt and the food delivered accurately. Large menu with excellent choices for every pallet. You must have the chocolate chili pecan pie for desert.

This is where it all started - the original Z'Tejas. We converted it from a turn-of-the-century Victorian house, preserving as much of its Old Austin Character as possible. Today, our cozy nooks and patios are part of the 6th Street legend.Live music plays every Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6PM-10PM.
