Beautiful place, great service.
Beautiful place, great service. Food was good- not outstanding. The 3 dip appetizer was very good, the fra diablo pasta was slightly bland, the burrito also lacked much flavor. Not bad, just not great; solidly just good enough. The lemon cake was somewhat dry. The pineapple margarita was good. Overall, for the price (pretty cheap) it was a good meal- just nothing exceptional. The waiter was extremely attentive and the ambience is lovely. For those reasons, I had a nice time.

I absolutely love this location.
I absolutely love this location. I visit often and the food and staff rarely disappoint. On my last visit we were seated for dinner at 5:45 and did not leave until 9:00. Never did the waiter make us feel rushed and I greatly appreciated that. I would highly recommend this location. The catfish beignets were very good and the other three people dining with me really enjoyed their meals.

Really great place. One of
Really great place. One of our favorites to meet and have dinner with friends. The food is always top notch, and the service is great. Sit outside if you can on a nice day, as inside it gets pretty noisy.

My wife and I have been to
My wife and I have been to the Z'Tejas downtown several times. We decided to stay north and give this one a shot. We were seated immediately and had the one of the best servers we've had in quite some time. Kristin was attentive and knowlegable. She really took care of us. The food was good but not outstanding. The best part of the meal was the service. We'll go back but not until after we try several more places

Fresh ingredients and great food!
My family enjoys Z-Tejas Avery Ranch because the food is phenomenal and it is close to home.

Would go back often
The food is terrific and so was the service.. We love the place. We introduced it to friends of ours on Friday night and they loved it also. It gets loud when it is busy and sometimes hard to have a conversation, but other than that really great.

I went here went a date (two people) and I was pleased! The good was good and the decor was great; the decor was something I was looking for that evening. The cost was within my budget; in fact I could spend the same amount here that I spend at whataburger. The only difference at ztejas the quality of food is ten times better than the food at whataburger.

We met with friends to celebrate our anniversaries. We really enjoyed the service and our meals. The staff is very attentive and pleasant. Very nice evening.

Great food and excellent service
Food is never bland or boring, but you better like Southwest flavors because they are in everything. Service was spot-on, even when things went wrong, kitchen was a bit off that night, but big kudos to our server.

Z Tejas is great!
Z Tejas is great! Love their menu. The food is great. I love that we have one near our neighborhood.
6/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everyone was energetic. The only way I can fault Z'Tejas we had to constantly ask for more tea as our waiter was waiting the tables inside the restaurant and outside on the patio. Everyone seemed happy and the manager did come over to our table to say hello. We ate brunch. Everything was cooked as ordered.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and service...but.
The staff was excellent. Food was superb. Nice atmosphere...but it was so loud you could not hear the person next to you.
I enjoy an energetic noise level but this too much. Will definitely go back for food and service. They are good enough to deal with the noise.

Had dinner with the hubster. The food was fantastic. I tried the seasonal menu, Habenaro Chicken Pasta; very tasty! I loved the suttle heat from the pepper sauce, the chicken was average, but he pasta and sauce made up for it. Hubster had the Macaroni and Cheese dish, he wavers none! His favorite dish there. My only complaint, we couldn't have a convo without raising our voices. It was very loud and distracting. We even were texting each other, just so we cold understand what we were trying to do. Go for the food, not go for a conversation.

Z-Tejas was everything I had
Z-Tejas was everything I had hoped for when I was entertaining business clients. The food was great especially the cilantro marinated chicken. I will return and will be bringing more friends, clients and family not just for special occasions but for everyday dining. I really appreciate the service and attitude of the entire staff. Great job!

Love this place
Great food, diverse and tasty menu, vast drink menu including skinny coctails, fresh made cornbread to die for. First time at this location- great patio area.

Innovative take on Tex Mex/Cajun
Tasty and creative pairings of Cajun & Tex-Mex flavors in pleasant surroundings. Service was very attentive without being annoying. Beautiful outside dining area too!

Successful Business Lunch
Had a great business lunch at Z'Tejas and the food and service was spot on. Our waitress was engaging and gave good menu advice when asked. All three of our entrees were tasty and the perfect portions for lunch. I will be back!
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We'll come again.
1We had an enjoyable Friday evening. Restaurant was busy but not too noisy. It had a nice atmosphere. Food was wonderful and service attentive. We will definitely return!

Our Favorite Place to Eat
This is my husband's and my favorite place to eat. We eat here once a week and recommend it all the time! Great service, food and atmosphere!!

Noisy but tasty
When we first walked in, I was immediately put off by the noise level. It is incredibly noisy in there, and my wife and I had to ask each other to repeat almost everything we said. However, the food was outstanding. My wife had salmon and I had -- well, it was the "Z Fresh of the Day" and I don't remember what it was called -- but it was divine. I couldn't finish my whole dinner and when our waitress brought a box for me, she also brought a box with another round of their delicious cornbread.
If you can lip read or you don't mind shouting, or if you can get past the noise level and just enjoy the food, then this place is great!

Great experience, as usual
This was our first time to the Avery Ranch location of ZTejas and the food and waitstaff were just as great as always (we usually go to the downtown or Arboretum locations. The noise level was a bit ridiculous, and that is partly due to a large party who was already there when we arrived.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went there last Sunday for my wife's birthday, we had a great brunch and the service was great!
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The cornbread was such a nice surprise to my meal. So delicious, it hit the spot!

Great neighborhood restaurant
Good food, good value and good service. A little noisy.

Our favorite neighborhood eatery
Enjoyed tasty appetizers and drinks at our neighborhood Z-Tejas at Avery Ranch. Always good selections to choose from. Usually I will have the mushroom enchiladas, but this time i chose the filet. It was so tender and tasty, loved it! Happy hour is great because the apps are half off!

Great food and service
My wife had the salmon special and it was amazing - cooked perfectly and taste was wonderful. I had the herb chili Mahi Mahi seasonal festival special was fantastic - spices had some heat which I love, cooked perfectly. Service was excellent, our server Jeffery was attentive, brought the drinks promptly, good timing between appetizers and the entrees, offered great suggestions. The manager came buy and asked about our meal, service and chatted for a little bit - nice touch. He did this at several tables.

Back to what made it great
We used to go to Z'Tejas often, but the last few times we felt it had become an overpriced Chilis. After not going to over a year, we decided to try again and were delighted to see things had improved.
Margaritas - Excellent. I don't like the sweet version sold many places, these were tart, almost sour. Only complaint, they are small.
Starter - Verde Pork. Excellent. Though, I think the version at Roaring Fork is better.
Main - My Rellenos were excellent (rich and flavorful, though a touch salty). Others at the table all enjoyed their meals as well.
Dessert - Peach Cobler. Good, tasty, but not the highlight of the meal.
Service - Okay. They were busy and the waiter wasn't attentive
Overall, I would say we will go back.

Nice place for date night
Food is always good. Wine suggestion worked well with appetizer and entree. Not too loud, service was handy but not overbearing.

Great Casual Dining
Met my daughter her for an informal dinner and conversation. We were given a quiet table back in the corner away from the bar and the evening was perfect. Great menu including nice lite items. Will go there again.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to Z"Tejas / Avery Ranch aprox 6 or 7 times over the past year or so. Every time the food and service has been excellent. I am so glad we have such a great restaurant right here in our neighborhood.

The food was outstanding. Our waiter knew we were on a tight schedule and had us in and out in a very timely manner. We will definitely come back for more!

A Happy Birthday Evening
We celebrated by hubby's birthday at Z-Tejas and had a perfectly pleasant evening. The wait staff was attentive but not overly intrusive. The food was good and we really enjoyed the visit.
