Diner Reviews
  • "This has always been my favorite restaurant. It was our 2nd anniversary and I asked for a more secluded table. We were put in the main dining room with families and a loud Baby. In addition, our waiter gave us no time to look at the menu to order appetizers before asking. The cat fish tacos were cold and the chicken enchiladas a disappointment. I have been here numerous times to great food and service, unfortunately not this time."

  • "I have had half a dozen people use the word "ok" to describe this place and I would have to agree. It isn't bad; but it isn't good; it's just ok. I had the miso salmon. I liked the chips and 3-piece appetizer tray (guac, salsa, queso). The happy hour menu looks good, I would return to try that before I would go for a meal."

  • "We were in Austin for one day. We heard 6th street was the place to go. Based on reviews we chose Z'Tejas. The restaurant was not located where all the action is. But that was ok. We took a walk after dinner to see where the action was. The food at Z 'Tejas was good, especially tableside made guacomole and margaritas. We had a pleasant informal meal. Staff was very friendly. Only criticism, I think decor seemed old and needed sprucing up and more attention to cleanliness (menus, floors). Overall, I would recommend Z'Tejas for a fun, laid back meal."

  • "We had a great meal. Food was very tasty, service was incredible. Our waitress was very helpful and accommodating in helping us find something my autistic son would eat. Everyone in our party of 6 loved their food. Would definitely go back."

  • "So many good things to say..food is tasty and well-prepared, although I've had issues with service and (rarely) lackluster preparation/presentation in the past, this wasn't one of those times. A former Austinite, I come here almost every time I am back in town."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The food was so outstanding that whenever made it past the happy hour menu. We had 5 different appetizer and they were all delicious! Topped it off with the best coconut cream pie ever."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Tables too crowded on main floor so that people going to second balcony and waitstaff are constantly going back and forth. Probably better in other parts of the restaurant. Food good, especially the cornbread. Margarita (basic) was very small. Shredded chicken enchilada wasn't very flavorful but did enjoy the appetizer of chips and guacamole, salsa and cheese dip -- yummy!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Z' Tejas has always been our "go to" restaurant the past 20 years because we can always count on the food being consistently delicious. We bring out of town guests there and they rave about it. So nice to have this gem in Austin."

  • "Got to sit on the front outdoor patio on a Saturday night. It was most pleasant. Much quieter than inside, even though it's on 6th St. We were impressed that mosquito repellant was available right next to our table, which was nice, because unfortunately they were out there too, but the Off worked well. Food was very good, as always. The salmon special was excellent. We love Z."

  • "From out of town and made our reservations so we could enjoy dining at one of our favorite restaurants in Austin. Friendly greeters, excellent service, good food, especially their "cornbread" that is prepared fresh every 30 mins. Chicken fried chicken was delicious! Enjoyed the atmosphere and people watching also. Relaxing place for brunch, lunch, dinner or a special occasion."

  • "We sat on the front patio which was really nice and pretty quiet. The waiter was prompt and the food was very tasty. I had the Mango Steak Salad and really enjoyed it."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Once we thought this "holiday" was a quiet way to relax with Dad. Now it seems like everyone decides to take him out to eat just like they do dear old Mom. The place was packed and our entrees took forty five minutes to arrive. That's too long by anyone's standards for a Tex-Mex place."

  • "Was out for a nice family brunch and waiter rushed us, clearing plates too early and bringing the check without asking."

  • "The grilled fish tacos here are impossible to top! There was plenty of healthily prepared fish, tangy slaw and a tasty tortilla. Foodie bliss."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We wanted to sit outside but it was already full on a Monday night, so we ate inside and it was quite enjoyable. The cornbread is to die for and after the appetizer we tried the pork chop special and beef fajitas. Both were great. The Ginger Fizz my wife had was over the top!! Looking forward to eating on the upstairs patio next time."

  • "ZTejas used to be good. I won't be back. The food was bad, service was worse, pushed happy hour prices, charged us full price...I took someone visiting Austin....and couldn't have been more embarrassed."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "Came here for brunch with my family and everything was off. The service was really slow and not very competent (the guy forgot our drinks, brought the wrong dish, disappeared for long periods). The food was not good. For example, the cornbread which is made in a skillet is usually hot and fresh but was cold this time. The rice accompanying the enchilada dish looked and tasted like it came from a box because the peas were shriveled. No one was blown away with their meals. This used to be one of my family's "go to" places but no more."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Joey was our waiter and he was supercalifragilistic expialidocious! He rocked. Attentive, knew the menu, boxed and labeled my to go box and did it all with a smile."

  • "We enjoyed some good food and great service at Z Tejas on West 6th. Even with a Mother's Day crowd everything was well prepared and we weren't lost in the rush. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We went to the Mother's Day brunch, and although the food was good we were sat right next to the bar. It was extremely noisy and there wasn't much privacy. We ate quickly and left. It was just not a relaxing meal. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "For the past six years I've taken my wife and our now three children to Z'Tejas Austin 6th Street for Mother's Day Brunch, and every year it's a fantastic way to start the day for her and the kids. You guys have delicious food, for sure, but the service and ambiance is truly the reason to keep coming back."

  • "The food was great the service was great. It made our time together even better. Our waiter took the time to help us get a great photo of the evening."

  • "Fish was served under cooked by a lot. Returned to kitchen where they got it right & apologized. Service was inattentive. Based on our other visits we will give them another chance."

  • "Food was very delicious at a great price. I came during lunch on a beautiful day and sat outside. It was perfect. "
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "Food was decent but server was slow, and the restaurant is very loud. They really pack you in there so if your looking for a romantic dinner, this would not be the place for you. They also are having AC problems in the front room. My wife and I were sweating it was so uncomfortable."

  • "My UT daughter began taking my husband and me to Z Tejas years ago and it has been "go to" favorite since. So this past weekend I took 5 girlfriends of 50 years to experience the uniqueness that embodies ZT. And it did not disappoint! From the bloody Mary bar to the cornbread to the grilled cilantro trout, Street tacos and Santa Fe chicken enchiladas everything was created with care, visually appealing, and absolutely delicious! To top it all off, the service was impeccable! Thank you ZT! "

  • "The five of us went early since the only reservation we could get on a Friday nite was at 5. I had the trout with avocado cilantro sauce ~~ delicious! Katie's Santa Fe enchiladas were tasty. Great time and great wait staff."

  • "I didn't know how simple and efficient the valet parking at Z'Tejas is. This fine Austin spot is so easy to get to, and I had thought of it as just too much trouble Not so. I handed the car off to valet parking, and we settled at a reasonably peaceful table with a white wine sangria and a couple of apps before dinner - good fish and good chile relleno. A perfect early supper spot before an event at the Long Center. Tip the valet parking team well!"

  • "All around solid dining experience. Ive been to this location a handful of times and have consistently enjoyed the experience. I HIGHLY recommend the mushroom enchiladas! (This time I had the fish Tacos and they were "so-so".) The service staff is always professional, energetic, and prompt. Joy, our waitress on our most recent trip, did a phenomenal job! Keep up the good work!"
