In 1989, the first Z’Tejas was born in an old Victorian house on Austin’s historic 6th Street. Taking flavors from Spanish and Mexican cuisines and combining them with inspirations from Arizona, Louisiana, California, New Mexico and Texas, Z’Tejas created a rich blend of flavors that we’ve come to celebrate as Southwestern cuisine.

Branch of a Southwestern chain eatery known for its large margarita selection & happy-hour deals.- Google
"I love the street tacos, cornbread, and catfish beignets."
"Not too much to choose from and seemed quite pricey for a happy hour special."

Z'Tejas was recommended by the concierge at our hotel. We had an appetizer, margaritas, entrée, and I ate half of a berry cobbler (more of a crumble). The trio appetizer, entrées, and complimentary corn bread were 5 stars. Margaritas at happy hour nicely priced and nice selection. Our server, Evan, was professional, friendly, and helpful. When we return to Austin, we will return to Z'Tejas and we will pass along this excellent review to local friends and family.

Great happy hour experience. Lovely little spot and great outside patio area. Great 5$ drink specials and queso appetizer. Great service and nice setting in the Austin Hill country!

I really enjoyed happy hour at the Z Tejas at the Arboretum. I had no idea they had such a pretty view at sunset and a huge fireplace outside so you can eat outside if you're only going for happy hour deals. The margaritas are really good! (I had a flight.) I loved the diablo pasta with jerk chicken.

While I don't typically like steakhouses due to their stuffy-vibe, Z'Tejas was refreshingly laid-back. The skillet corn bread was pretty good, not very sweet but moist and tasty. The food was all great and we were definitely too stuffed for dessert! My coworkers all had margaritas and said they were great though I can't vouch personally.

I really enjoyed my previous experience it another Ztejas. This time, however, I was a bit disappointed. They were just way too busy which I understand, so I won't rate them any lower. But we had too wait for 45 minutes plus for our food after we sat down. Plus they screwed up some things on my wife's order. To be fair they ended up comp-ing it though. Good food, just avoid if they are overly busy cause the service suffers.

Cornbread, Ruby trout, shrimp tostada bites. Feel like their desserts are too much though, and I can handle pretty sweet things.

Came here during happy hour to check out what all the talk was about with their new happy hour menu. The drink specials was not all what I thought it would be. Not too much to choose from and seemed quite pricey for a happy hour special. Maybe I was on the wrong side of town. They even got rid of their half price wine bottles on Monday.. Booooo.. Our server seemed new, but he did a good job. There were other people that assisted him when he would fall behind. There were numerous food items on the list. I love the street tacos, cornbread, and catfish beignets. It was delicious. They have a nice covered patio to enjoy that nice Austin day.
