First time going to Z'Tejas and I will go back. I got the catfish beignets and the Santa Fe Smoked Chicken Enchilada. Can we say YUM-O!?! The catfish was cooked perfectly and the enchilada had a really nice flavor. I will return to make it to dessert.

We enjoyed dining in the quiet and ambient outside patio area. The menu offers so many interesting selections and every dish was extremely fresh and flavorful. We've been going to the Z-Tejas chain for years while visiting the Phoenix area from San Diego and have never been disappointed. It was our first visit to the Chandler location and the general...

This is a beautiful and very busy restaurant on a Friday night. Had to wait about 40min but it was worth it. The food was great. We had chile rellano and the salmon both excellent choices.

Z'tejas, which is according to the waiter the result of combining The Spanish spelling of Texas with the Z for zorro, is an upscale Tex-Mex dining option. A cavernous dining room, which is noisy, hectic and overly air-conditioned, awaits, but making up for that is a menu of standards and originals in a medium price range. I had the fish... More

Don't expect a traditional Mexican restaurant. I thought since we were in Chandler we would get some authentic Mexican food. This is not the case at all for this restaurant The dishes are not at all what I anticipated. But I did enjoy my mushroom enchiladas and the guacamole. My companion seemed to enjoy his fajitas. The Chambord frozen margarita... More

My husband and I had dinner here tonight. Started with the table side guacamole, which was really good. He had the green chili burrito, which he liked, and I had the street tacos (steak) which were super yummy.

We have been to Z'Tejas in Chandler twice over the past month. The food is very good - much better than the typical Mexican restaurant. They have a nice blend of Mexican and southwestern. The mushrooms enchiladas come with a mango salsa and it is one of their better dishes. Everything we've ordered has been very good. The first time... More

Walked in at about 7PM on a Tues. The tables were about half occupied and we were seated immediately. Despite this we waited a long time for a server to appear. Recognizing the issue, our server started with an apology. I had the feeling that we came right at the border of 2 shifts, or were seated at the border... More

My meal was dreadful, but others seem to love theirs. I ordered their "soup" and a quesadilla. The soup was like glue. The quesadilla was spicy which I did not expect. I try to avoid spicy food because it burns my gums. At any rate, I would not go back as no one's meal seemed that special and it was... More
