Very pleased. We knew downtown Tempe was going to be tough for parking, so I was delighted to find that you have free valet parking. I've heard Pat McMahon talk about your Voodoo Tuna on the radio for years, so I tried it. Excellent! We also worried about reservations because some restaurants don't do that now, and I was very pleased to find the online reservations. We had to change it slightly, and that was easy too.

Miss Z'Tejas from our time
Miss Z'Tejas from our time living out west. The Tempe Z'Tejas was our first stop after arriving in Phoenix. It was a great as we remembered! Outstanding food, flavors and service! Reasonably priced for the quality of the food. Welcomed with the yummy cornbread with just enough spice. Started with the Tejas Trio...especially loved the queso. One of our party couldn't stop raving about (or eating) the Chorizo stuffed pork tenderloin. The Santa Fe chicken enchilada and wild mushroom enchilada were as delicious as we remembered. Just wish they were down the street from us. We will be back whenever the opportunity arises.

Excellent service for bachelorette
We reserved a table ahead of time for a surprise bachelorette party. As it was a surprise for the bride, we needed a little help fromZ-Tajas in coordinating her arrival. The service was EXCELLENT. Our reservation was on time (which was crutial for ths surprise). The waitress and manager on duty went out if their way to make sure everything went as planned. It all went very smoothly and the bride had a great time. The food abd drinks were delicious as well.

Interesting menu items
Very interesting food and drink items. Not your typical Mexican food. We shared the chorizo stuffed shrimp appetizer, which was 5 large shrimp that were not too spicy. The shrimp were served with a sweet dipping sauce and on top of a drizzle of the sweet sauce and a wasabi sauce, if you desired more heat.
We each had a different entree, all of which were very good, but thought portions were a bit small for the price. Enchilada dishes were served with large portion of (very good) rice and black beans which filled the plate.
They brought the wrong appetizer and then our entrees were delayed (which we thought was on purpose because of reorder of appetizer, but it was because kitchen made wrong entree.

Mexican Food with a Flare
I thought I was making reservations at the restaurant on Ray, but In error, made them for the downtown Tempe location. The hostess was understanding after we figured out why she could't find my reservation. My friend and I sat in the bar and the bartenders entertained us until our table was ready.
The food was excellent, and so plentiful we took our leftovers home. I can't say enough about the service, ambience and food.
Thank you for a wonderful experience.

We had a really nice experience! The staff was very friendly and attentive! The atmosphere was relaxed. The food was very good except for the flan dessert I had! I should know better than to order flan at a restaurant! :) I had the mushroom enchiladas for my entree and it was awesome!! The rest of our group enjoyed their food as well, except for my husband who said his burger was a little dry! Should have ordered it medium rare instead of medium! :)
Overall enjoyable experience!!

Taste of our entrée was wonderful as well as the presentation. Good margarita with plenty of alcohol, not watered down which you sometimes get. Great service.

My favorite restaurant
Food is great. Management, wait staff and kitchen personnel are tops. Most definitely the best restaurant in downtown Tempe!

ZTejas is a comfortable friend whether its coming from the airport, going to Gammage or just passing by. And you can't beat their happy hour food pricing. I've been addicted to their cornbread and catfish tacos for decades. Great taste of the southwest for visitors too. Enjoy

Our first time there. We were extremely pleased with our choices and the Margaritas are incredible!

Excellent food. The Margarita was awesome and the appetizers were delicious. The Happy Hour prices are definitely worth it. The enchiladas were really good. It was a bit spicy for the wife but it was perfect for me. The kids loved their food too. Definitely coming back.
The service was fantastic. The food came out fast. The waiter accommodated my request to bring out a surprise slice of cake for my son's birthday.

Try the amazing fish tacos. Delicious. Also check out the innovative margaritas selection. Outstanding. We will come back a fourth time. Service level blew me away. We never were without cornbread or drinks.

Table was ready right on time. Service was friendly and prompt; good combination for pre-game meals. Food is predictably good.

First time to this restaurant
This was my first trip to Z-Tejas. I've passed the location many times, even had coworkers say it's good, but never went there before this weekend. I will definitely return.
My spouse and I went Saturday at 5pm. We began with tostada bites with guacamole and shrimp. The tostadas were crispy, the guac fresh and tasty, and the shrimp well-seasoned and cooked perfectly. It was definitely our favorite dish of the evening. We ordered the diablo pasta with shrimp and pepita-crusted chicken for our main course. Both were delicious and rich in flavors. I loved the sweet potato hash. We ended our meal with their (OMG) ancho chile fudge pie. The pie could use a bit more heat, but it was warm and rich with chocolate.
Great service. Not for kids.

Brought out of town guests
Our out of town guests really enjoyed the z Tejas experience. Everyone loved the guacamole, and the tortilla soup was a big hit.
