Was very difficult trying to find something to eat that didn't have cilantro in it.

Nice patio, hit or miss dining.
The patio, with its elevated scenic view, makes this location special. Dining on the patio is picturesque and much less noisy than dining inside--if you don't like a noisy restaurant, try for an outdoor table. As far as the food, I have eaten at the 6th street location far more often, and this location does not quite reach the quality of the original. My flank steak roulade (the special that evening) was merely acceptable. The steak itself was excellent but the filling did not impress. The sweet potato hash on which the steak was presented could've been crispier (hashed potatoes are usually browned and crispy, right?). I enjoyed this Z Tejas more for the view than the food.

I have been going to this
I have been going to this restaurant for over 15 years. The uniqueness of the cuisine never fails to impress and their standards (Ancho Chocolate Pie) are always of exceptional quality. It is a rare restaurant whose standards don't slip after such a long time!

Great restaurant and location!
We joined our son for a birthday celebration and the whole event was easily delightful! Our food arrived very quickly and we dived into it. It was very tasty, our server was very nice and friendly -- she told us of various options on the menu. All three of us enjoyed our visit and our food!

C'mon hostess, step it up.
I was unhappy that our hostess seated us outdoors with a table/chairs that were wet due to recent rain. She saw me using my hand to wipe away the rain and never offered to get it cleaned up for us. Other than that,the service was very good.

Great experience. My specific requests were all followed regarding my meal - I'm on a special diet, so this isn't an easy thing to do. Food was all delicious & served in an efficient manner by our friendly server. We will definitely be back!

We had booked a party of eight. One part of the group had some car issues on the way and was late. Ztejas did not give us a problem with that. Then when the party showed, we ended with nine. We were easily and cheerfully accomodated.

A great place for a fun evening. Good food with a nice selection to choose from. Make sure you save room for the cornbread.
4/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service. This location is better than the one downtown because you get a great view and there is parking available. Had the Ahi tuna and it was great. The appetizers were great and the cornbread was delicious. Will definitely go back.

I came here with my family For me UT graduation dinner and we all loved it! We sat out on the patio and the views were amazing. The food was excellent, I had the special which was a steak tenderloin with crab meat, asparagus, and mashed potatoes. We had the berrycombler for desert. So good! I highly recommend this restaurant. Oh, and Annie is a great waitress! Overall, great experience

As a visitor to Austin, I selected this restaurant on the recommendation of someone who had lived there. I was not disappointed. Great menu with lots of variety and spice. Beautiful setting with a view of the hills of the city.

We always seem to enjoy our experience at Z Tejas. My wife and I both had the Achiote Chicken Chop Salad. One of my favorite dishes there. We sat on the patio outside, other than the excessive wind (not much they could do about that), the experience was great as usual.

Loud, but Pleasant
The food was excellent and the martinis generous. Appetizers are particularly good, but the best part of the experience was a wonderful waiter, Brenden. What a likeable person and attentive (without being hovering) server!

Scenic Lunch...great food!
We had a great table with wonderful view and the Red Ruby Trout Salad was fabulous as all three of us had the same thing...and all left satisfied!!

Real Good Food
The chili relleno is special with the great blend of ingredients and smoked chicken enciladas are very good. The three salsa appetizer is a favorite too.

Relaxing Family Brunch
Our family (parents, 2 kids under 10) thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday brunch at Z'Tejas. We arrived right at noon, with a reservation - but there was no line to speak of. The restaurant was about half full, lots of other families with kids, as well as a good showing of the 50+ crowd. We were offered a light drink straight away (Mimosas & Bloody Mary's), which we declined because of our afternoon plans. The food was excellent - just as we ordered. I have a gluten allergy, & our server answered all of my questions in regards to their menu, as well as directing me to their dedicated Gluten Free menu on the back of the main menu. The accomodated a special request (subbing corn for flour tortillas) when I opted to order off the main menu.

always a winner
I take clients here, and I frequent with my friends for happy hour. Z is a winner. Try it and you'll agree.

Great Experience -
Went on a Sunday evening and it was not so crowded and we could have pleasant table conversation.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Noisy but worth it!
Consistently good food and service. Noise level can be exhausting though. Very hard to carry on conversation inside the building. If you want to talk, sit on the scenic porch.

Great first impression
This was my first time dining at this restaurant. The food was great from start to finish and the service was wonderful. The only complaint I have is that our two top table was a bit too small to hold our entrees, chips, drinks, and guacamole. Overall, everything was wonderful and I'll definitely be returning!
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great View, Great Food, Great Place
It can be a bit noisy inside, but out on the balcony, it is much more intimate. Beautiful scenic view and great ambiance for a stimulating conversation. The food is excellent and is only surpassed by the service. All-in-all, a great dining experience!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our Waitress was amazing. She was able to keep up with our party of 8 with no issues. Drinks were always refilled and she made sure we had everything we needed. Overall a great experience for a family birthday dinner.

Love this place
Every time we go to Ztejas everything is exceptional. Our guests were very impressed with the restaurant and especially the food and drinks.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Still Good but Changing
We had not eaten at a Z Tejas in a few years but was pleased to find everything wonderful. The menu is updated and interesting. I had the seafood enchiladas, which were terrific. My companion had the ahi tuna--amazing. Good drink and wine list, too. And the cornbread. . . .extra yummy.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is great! Service not.
We arrived when they opened and were seated immediately be a very cordial young man. Our server did not take our drink orders for almost 15 minutes. When she brought our glasses with alcohol so we could go to the "bloody Mary bar" to fix them ourselves the glasses were half full with clear liquid. When asked if it was all vodka she said a lot of ice had melted then she left. So much for the watered down drink. When she took our order she did so abruptly and did not ask which muffin we wanted. I had to call her back only to get an annoyed reaction. The food was outstanding in every way and a great experience. We loved sitting outside with the view. Sorry the server left our morning a little distressed.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was good, service was great. They honored my request for a table by the window. This place has an awesome deck and view - but at 100+ I need some a/c! I appreciate their vegetarian menu.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and serviced as always
Food and serviced as always was excellent. Since opening it has always been too noisy and is in serious need of sound deadening improvements, which could be done with inexpensive and decorative flair.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great menu - you have lots to choose from and don't feel like you are looking at the same old dishes. Many cuisines are fused together. Everything I have had on each of my 6/7 visits has been delicious.
Good value food, service is always quick and friendly.
The only down side is that it can be a pain to find a parking spot, but you can always park on the very steep road outside.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Tex mex cuisine...solid menu. A bit loud during lunch.

good service, not typical Tex Mex food. Everyone in my large party of 25 was happy with their meals.

Have been here for a bachelorette party and a birthday celebration. Impressed with the service and food!

I organized a business dinner at this restaurant for 8 people. Our experience was excellent. Since a few of us were in Austin from other cities, I thought it'd be nice to go somewhere with a southwestern flair, and this place fit the bill. It was fairly chilly that night, so the fireplaces created a cozy, inviting atmosphere. And the food was great; everyone at the table enjoyed what they ordered. Service was also great. Definitely recommend this place.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
What can you say - Z Tejas is simply good every time you go! I've taken groups from work (around 20 people) or just my wife. In both cases, the service has been excellent! The food is always unique and tasty. This is definitely a "go to" spot for me.
