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

Went on a Sunday. Worst fajitas I've ever had. Only two tables and food took 35 minutes. Meat was overly spiced and cold. Rubbery tortillas. Go elsewhere.

I ate here two nights in a row while on a trip to Tempe. The food and drinks were all excellent. The queso in particular is excellent and additive. We had two different kinds and they were both impossible to stop eating. I had the street tacos one night and a chile relenno special the other night, and both were... More

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.
