This adorable restaurant on 6th St features many different room which is perfect for private parties. The food is delicious and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. They were happy to handle 30 real estate agents and we are no picnic:-) Our waiter Gable and his two co-waiters made the evening fun and entertaining. I will definitely go back.

The cornbread was like eating a piece of cake and for $3 you can't beat that. service was excellent as we had a group of 9. I can't remember what everyone ordered but everyone raved about their food. First Mexican restaurant that didn't bring out chips and salsa to fill up on.

Never thought I'd tell people to go to a place to eat cornbread, but DO IT. They have tons of yummy deliciousness there, but THE CORNBREAD. I stuffed myself silly on it. Jerk Chicken Salad was amazing as well, but...cornbread. Husband had some salmon that was amazing for dairy-free. Prices are up there, but I've seen *way* worse in that... More

We started with a pan of cornbread, chips and salsa, and the tostada bites. I have never liked cornbread (we got it because the proceeds go to a charity right now), and WOW it was amazing and delicious. The cilantro in the salsa was such a great touch. The tostada bites (with shrimp and guac) were nice and bite-sized and... More

Z'Tejas is our go-to place when in Austin. The happy hour specials are great. Their margaritas are refreshing and strong. I drink wine but these are my husband's favorite margarita. We usually just order appetizers and drinks and always leave satisfied. Our favorites are the catfish beignets, shrimp tostada bites, ahi tuna, blackened catfish tacos, and street tacos. We also...

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!
