We went there to give a friend a good taste of Austin. We ate there last year this time and were very impressed. Such was not the case this year. The food was rather ordinary and our waiter was not very knowledgeable of the menu items. The items he recommended were not very good. the margaritas were somewhat bitter as... More

Three of us were in town for a conference and followed a recommendation to eat here. I was impressed with the physical restaurant. The staff was very friendly. The menu was varied enough that a lot of different people could be satisfied. I was satisfied with the burrito that I ordered and the side salad. In fact, all three of... More

We were in the area and looking for good tex mex for a late lunch, and Z'Tejas didn't disappoint. This seems like a local spot that would work for a date or a quick lunch - super versatile atmosphere. The food was solid (the mushroom enchilada was super tasty) and the margaritas smooth and strong. Prices were reasonable and service... More

Quite a variety of unusual southwestern and Mexican dishes to choose with seafood, beef, or chicken. Not your typical Southwestern restaurant. Has a full bar and special drinks. Can't miss, no matter what you try. Liked eating out on the patio in back and a nice almost cool evening. Well woth a try.

A really great place. I can't give it 5 stars though. Service was a little lacking. Guacamole was good - made at the table but didn't have any "kick". I asked for jalapeño peppers and the waiter brought out chunks of peppers, not finally chopped peppers for guacamole. The Patron Martinis were excellent - I must say and a new... More

I really love this place we've been coming for 10 years and the food is always good. My favorite is the Achiote Chicken Salad and my husbands is the mushroom enchiladas. I didn't give it 5 stars on this visit though because the waiter was pretty bad and they said the cornbread was going to take 15 minutes. 15 minutes... More

Four of us loved the skillet-baked corn bread for a cause, along with the 4 different menu items we got: Tejas Trio, Wild Mushroom Enchillada, Z/Burger, & Southwest Pesto Pasta with chicken.

This restaurant has been here for a long time and is really popular with the young crowd who don't mind noise, but is not so good for those of us who don't want to yell at each other. The food is Southwestern rather than Mexican, and is good, but not excellent. No free chips and salsa.

Waiter who served us was great. Staff was friendly and helpful. However, the place looked dirty and not well maintained. The food was good, not great overall. Baja Fish Tacos were good but would have been great if they put more mango salsa on it. The amount was so small. The Street Tacos were very good. The Barbacoa Enchiladas were... More
