Tasty, well prepared mainstream Tex Mex, although a little bland for both the fish and shrimp tacos. The queso dip was delicious as was the peach cobbler dessert. Great atmosphere made for an enjoyable meal.

We've been to this location and the Scottsdale location and have always liked the food, atmosphere and service. The atmosphere & decor is very nice. Their special skillet corn bread and butter before the meal is served is very tasty. The server was very efficient but...the food took longer than usual to get to our table and then it was so disappointing. The chicken in my Chicken Fajitas was dry and chewy. The spicy coating on my chicken was quite heavy and salty. My husband's Grilled Chicken was barely lukewarm and also dry and tough. We mentioned this to the manager. He said he was sorry and comped half of the lowest priced entree.

Good evening,
I apologize for the delayed response as I just recently received the login credentials to manage this account as the new GM at this location. I also apologize for the mediocre food and subpar management interaction you received. Our kitchen, specifically our executive chef Danny Ocampo take great pride in the made from scratch food you receive. If it doesn't leave you completely satisfied, we're not completely satisfied. Please email me directly at umolina@ztejas.com prior to your next visit so I can make it right for you. Mediocrity is unacceptable in our restaurant. I appreciate your time & feedback.

You just can't beat the appetizers - the grilled shrimp tostada bites with guacamole, the chicken quesadilla, catfish beignets (get two of the sauces), and tableside guacamole are all outstanding. The staff is great, both in the restaurant and the bar. A perfect place for dinner or just to hang out in the bar after an earlier event.

The menu selection is good. Missed 5 stars because service was slow and food arrived on the cool side for no anxious reason. The restaurant was not very busy.
Will consider going back.

The Z'Tejas in Scottsdale was my FAVORITE local restaurant when I moved to the valley 21 years ago. Stopped into the one in Chandler on Ray Road over the weekend, and was reminded why I love this place - TOP NOTCH Southwest food combinations and preparation. The blackened catfish tacos were amazing. I cannot wait to go back and have them again. My husband had the burger and fries, and he loved that too. Fries were perfect. Bartender was very friendly and attentive. Bar/lounge area has a nice casual vibe. Great place, superb food.
