I agree with the recent reviewer who noted that the quaility of food is not what it used to be. Can't pinpoint it, and there also seems to have been a big turnover in the wait staff, without the ease we used to take for...More

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...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...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...More

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...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,...More

We have a party of 17 for dinner and are trying to find a fun, place where we can have a work meal together. What we don't need is super private, but loud and in the middle of everyone else won't work either.....How is Z' Tejas for that?

I do not remember seeing a side room. I was there for lunch and it seemed crowded and conversation would be difficult. Food was outstanding. I would call to see if they can accommodate you

This is where it all started - the original Z'Tejas. We converted it from a turn-of-the-century Victorian house, preserving as much of its Old Austin Character as possible. Today, our cozy nooks and patios are part of the 6th Street legend.Live music plays every Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6PM-10PM.
