    I have always loved Z'Tejas...one of my favorite restaurants. My only complaint for this visit was that the waiter didn't really listen well. We had 3 children with us and they ordered specific things - two of them came incorrect. They were very good in changing the order and accommodating the kids. AND it would not deter my going back. I think they do a marvelous job on their food, particularly their Mac and Cheese.

    We arrived during Happy Hour and ordered Chambord Margaritas [fabuloso] and the Trio [guacamole, salsa and queso with a huge basket of warm tortilla chips]. the Trio was only %4,a nd the drinks were a buck off. A great deal. Our friendly server suggested the Achiote Chicken salads, which were delicious and a great buy at only $13.95. Maybe the best part of the meal was the warm cornbread with honey butter. We took home th half loaf that we didn't eat. Z Tejas is definitely a "keeper" and has earned a return visit the next time we are in Scottsdale.

    Great place to eat. We like the Five-CheeSe Macaroni & Achiote Chicken. It's located inside of Fashion Square Mall near several other upscale restaurants. Can be tricky to find close parking if you are not from Scottsdale. Suggest you try Parking Deck Green.

    We were there with a group of people for most of the night. We were in a remote area that was perfect so that we could carry on a conversation. The ambiance was awesome. The only complaint I can make is slight and is that we felt a bit forgotten at times because of needed refills for drinks and chips... They were very friendly and someone who was a manager, maybe, came to ask about our meal and service. He was very friendly and seemed sincere. I had an appetizer, Tacos, for dinner which was very tasty & aperfect amount for my appetite.

    We had a large group which makes logistics very difficult. The food was not as warm as I would have expected or even had on other occasions. My biggest difficulty is the long tables that make talking hard. Why can't it be a square or round. Oh well! Service was great and overall we were happy.

    Went to the wrong Z. Assumed that the Gateway location was Scottsdale. They called the Scottsdale location and informed them that we were at a different location. No problem. Staff was friendly and attentive. The Bloody Mary bar was an excellent find. We have made a reservation to return this week.

    We would have preferred to be seated closer to the busy bar area rather than the nearly empty dining area - I'm sure the servers would have preferred it too (seeing as our original server left after our appetizer and the server from the bar area came over to see us through anyway). I'm sure we could have requested this ourselves prior to sitting, but I think a host should understand that kind of thing.

    Food was decent. Wasn't a very happening place when we were there. About 8:30 in the evening and they were basically closing up while we ate. For a place that serves dinner it didn't feel like they wanted to be there.
