Nothing spectacular. Good service. I do highly recommend the complimentary cornbread. Tasty!! The mexican dishes have a unique flavor which is more New Mexico in origin. Good service. Good place for lunch but nothing special.

Went here for dinner with business friends. It was well lit and had a nice atmosphere. We didn't get any cornbread; after reading reviews I am disappointed. Got the shrimp bites for appetizer. They were ok. Got Baja tacos for dinner. Those were ok too, seemed dry. Would have liked more lime or sauce. Overall not in love with the... More

I didn't get to try any appetizers or other courses, but the mushroom enchiladas were good. Not earth shattering, but nice. The portion size was a little smaller than I expected.

I was here for dinner two days in a row and was a good decision. Good margaritas and excellent Mexican food. I would not necessarily recommend the steaks though.

This restaurant offers a great happy hour with affordable drinks and appetizers. But even ordering off the menu is a treat. The food is very good - try the crispy salmon, fajitas, burgers or chopped salad. All servings are large enough to take half gone for a second meal. And they serve $3 cornbread with the proceeds going to charity.... More

Went there tonight with family and thought it was very good. Interesting menu of tex-mex and southern favorites. Had the chicken-fried steak and it was tasty, tender and ample. 2 orders each of fajitas and tacos got good reviews. Burrito was tasty but small, family member came home hungry. Everyone else at table was satiated. Food was good, service was... More

If all you do is go for a drink and some table side guac it is worth the trip. Recommended by a local and so glad he did!

Stopped for lunch in the middle section of the Tempe Festival of Arts. Had fajitas and husband had a green chile burger. The food here is always flavorful and the service is great. The manager takes the time to visit every table and make sure all is good. Buy a cornbread and the proceeds go to Phoenix Children's Hospital😍

I had just a short stay in Tempe in October but ate two of my three dinners at Z'Tejas.The patio drew me in the first night, cooled by fans and mist, it looked so appealing on a hot Arizona evening. The margerita was a perfect start served with salsa and tortilla chips that were warm. I had guacamole prepared table... More
