We enjoyed our food. We went during happy hour as otherwise it's a bit pricey. The server made a recommendation for me and I enjoyed the seafood stuffed hatch chili. It's a bit loud though.

Happened to be in the area so stopped in for a quick dinner. We'd been there before and loved it. This place never disappoints. We had the specials; jalapeño wrapped chicken and pork chop Milanese. Both quite excellent - hot and tasty. Hot spicy on the chicken dish. Not so much on the pork. Server Rachel was excellent and attentive.... More

They accommodated 13 of us by putting tables together. The Chambord Margarita was yummy! Several of us ate only appetizers, and were very happy. All the food was good.

Large potions, but not great! I had the smoked chicken enchiladas which was probably one of the better items.

Z'Tejas was recommended by a friend and didn't disappoint. We called ahead to reserve a table for 12. They were gracious and accommodating, dedicating a quiet area on the side entirely to us. The service was excellent, as was the food. Prices were good too! Highly recommend and thank you!

Great food, great attitude, & great service! Casey & Amber you both rock! Thanks for making our Anniversary special. We plan on coming back for our 10th next year. The margaritas, catfish beignets, smoked chicken quesadilla, tejas trio, & ancho chile pie were just as good as every visit. Hopefully, we'll be back soon.

The food is wonderful here, especially the table side guacamole and chips ! the chips are thin, fresh and with a hint of salt. The guacamole is spicy but not too much, just very tasty and a nice compliment to your food if you have some left over. We met our daughter for a weekday lunch, the parking is on... More

Always try to make it to one of the Z Tejas restaurants when I'm either in Austin or Phoenix. I had a short one night trip recently and stayed by Sky harbor airport so I was close to the Tempe location. I didn't make it over there until almost 10:00 PM but even though there weren't many people there into... More

I could reject all other restaurant queso for the queso at Z'Tejas. Muy excellente! The wedge salad with beef was also great. Service was adequate, a bit aloof. That's ok. It is all about the queso. Good happy hour value.
