  • "The yummy "street tacos" (an appetizer) & cornbread (free) made a full meal for me."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Although we had to wait an extra 15 minutes for our table due to the Father's Day rush, once we were seated, we had a good time and enjoyed the food. We expected a rushed, busy atmosphere on Father's Day, but it seemed like the restaurant was unprepared, and we had to wait about ten minutes after getting our drinks before the waiter returned to take our order. By that time we were trying to flag him down. The mac 'n cheese for the 4-yr-old wasn't to his liking - too different from what he was used to - but he declared the grilled chicken on top "delishush" and tried to get us all to taste it. My hickory burger was amazing and huge - enough for two meals for me. I took half home. The 10-yr-old's pancakes were more than she could eat. Great!"

  • "We frequent ztejas quite a bit so I brought my family there for fathers day brunch. . It took a whole hour to get our food and three of the 6 plates were cold I was asked to have them reheated and I agreed the plates still came back cold... The beans were dry from reheating it and food was cold. . I Was very disappointed because it was my parents first time there and they did not enjoy the experience...The manager was kind to take off two plates from the bill..."

  • "We were a party of 6, a couple of our dinners came out cold. When they were remade and reserved they were so hot that people had to wait for it to cool down to be able to eat them. Cobbler desert swimming in butter very unappetizing. Also, the pan it was served in was so hot that the ice cream melted incredibly fast - very disappointing. while the place was not as busy as we have seen it in the past, the waitress was not able to stop by enough to provide drink service. The manager stopped by an apologized but only mentioned the cold food issue and did not stay long enough for us to talk about anything else as he was trying to get to many tables at that time. "

  • "We had amazing service and it was really busy while we were there. I wish I could remember my waitresses name because she deserves a giant shout out. She said she had been working there for 9 years and it was apparent! We were a party of 8 and our waitress was beyond patient accommodating everyone's requests. She was always two steps ahead of us bringing out drinks, answering questions, and making recommendations. The build your own drink bar was delicious and so fun! The menu items were unique and delicious. It was a great place for our group and we will definitely be back! "

  • "When we asked our waitress for suggestions for my husband to get something that didn't have tomatoes in it, she ended up recommending a dish and as it was loud, he said fine. It turned out to be a kids macaroni & cheese with 4 skimpy strips of chicken on it. I got salmon that was slightly burnt on the bottom. Not a thrilling meal."

    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "We had a reservation, since it was Mother's Day. We were seated promptly, even though it was very busy. Some people were waiting outside for seats. I assume they didn't have a reservation. Our waiter came quickly and took our drink and appetizer order. When my daughter picked up her water glass, it broke in her hand. It was cleaned up quickly. The waiter checked on us frequently and finally sent the manager over to tell us our order hadn't been processed yet and would be comped . We finally got our food after 1 hour and 15 minutes. We had plenty of time to talk, which we enjoyed. We also enjoyed the food. Having our meal comped after a long wait was appreciated. Our service was very good."

  • "Z'Tejas has been one of my famly's favorite restaurants for a long time. I've tried many of the entrees and have never been disappointed. The cast-iron skillet dumplings are outstanding, and the service has always been great. "

  • "Haven't been here in a while due to personal logistics. ..forgot what we'd been missing. Food, Service and Management far above average. Already planning our next visit. Best choice for my Mother's Day. "

  • "This is the second year we have gone to this Z tejas for mother's day brunch. It was SO BUSY which was to be expected. I made a reservation through open table and we were seated right away which was great. The service was pretty good especially because it was so busy. The food was horrible. I usually love Z tejas but ugh. My order was absolutely disgusting. I have never sent anything back in my life so I didn't send it back this time either but I really should have. I am 8 months pregnant and will pretty much eat anything right now ha. I ordered the migras and it was soggy, the cheese was hard as a rock, it said scrambled eggs was part of the meal but all I found was a thin flat egg mixed in with soggy chips. Blech. It was terrible. "

  • "Food gave me a stomach ache afterward. Very gassy stuff. One server was v. sweet. Otherwise this place was a bust."

  • "We had 5:30 reservations and arrived about 7 minutes late. No parking spots so my husband dropped me off. We got a table immediately and I told the host that we had a 7:30 show. Our server was friendly, polite and got our food out quickly! Unfortunately, the entire experience was not good. So loud, you couldn't even have a conversation. My husband's chicken fajitas weren't hot fresh and sizzling as they always are where ever you get them! Chick portion was small and dry. I loved the flavor of the seafood enchiladas, but folks, other than the two shrimp on top, they were mushroom and spinach enchiladas. What a disappointment! This was our date night and dinner was a bust! Don't bother unless you like loud, crazy and mediocre food. "

  • "We enjoyed a delicious brunch at Z'Tejas! The food and service were as wonderful as I previously remembered...and of course the cornbread never fails to deliver! Z'Tejas is a taste sensation!"

  • "Glad I made a reservation. On Saturday the place was packed and got my table right away. Great service!!"

  • "There was no management on our visit. People were waiting outside for a table. Our reservations were honored, but on the way to our table we noticed numerous empty tables that had not been cleared. We had to wait 30 minutes for our drinks since they had no clean martini glasses. The food was slow to arrive and the tortillas for my fajitas were cold. They had not even been heated. Oh well, lets eat and get out of this place. This used to be a great, well-managed restaurant. It has moved into a bush-league, non-managed restaurant."

  • "We dine at Z Tejas often, however our waiter was absolutely clueless. We had to remind him several times and repeat ourselves over and over so that he could hear, when he should have moved closer to us. He screwed up the orders and the final bill. He was not friendly and not helpful at all. The manager had to come by and fix the orders. He didn't seem to know what he was doing. On Easter Sunday - the service should have been much better!"

  • "Love the twist on food & best Bloody Mary bar! Love the jerk chicken hash!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Z Tejas has great lunch and dinner menu items and it is one of our favorite places. This was our first time for brunch and I'm not as crazy about their brunch items. Guess I will just have to keep trying different items 'til I find a favorite! OpenTable got us a reservation for Easter brunch when our direct phone call couldn't!"

  • "My first drink was a spicy watermelon Margarita and all I could taste was tequila. I hate being that person, but I couldn't stomach it and switched to a frozen Chambord Margarita, which was sightly better but still super strong tasting. Food was okay, but not impressive. I've been to cheaper places and gotten more flavor and a better serving size. On a positive note, the cornbread and shrink tostadas were great. Service was good and server was very polite."

  • "Great food, great service, great atmosphere. A little on the noisy side but you can't beat it. I will be back."

  • "This place always comes up as a suggested place to take out of town guests... Unfortunately, we are always underwhelmed with the quality and presentation of the dinner menu. The margaritas are always bitter, never an enjoyable experience. After many visits, unfortunately, we will not be returning..."

  • "Excellent service, especially the server. The bloody mary bar for the weekend brunch was outstanding and the bar was constantly being restocked as the crowd flowed through. definitely going back for future outings and recommending to friends and associates."

  • "Did I mention it was loud? I mean LOUD!! Good place if you're there just for the food, which was fine, but not recommended if you want to talk to your table mates, too. My voice was horse after a couple hours."

  • "I meet a former business colleague every year for lunch when she and her husband winter in the Phoenix area. For the past few years we have met at Z'Tejas in Chandler, which is about halfway for each of us. We keep going back because the food is very good, and there's always some special that we enjoy. We have also never been failed by the service. If I look to find some complaint, it's the noise level, which seems a bit loud for these old ears. Would recommend it to anyone."

  • "Whenever we go out, we split an entree because most places have huge portions. We had scallops in a skillet (not the actual name) and it was very good. With the large dinner salad and corn bread, it was perfect for two. The scallops stayed very warm as they were served in a cast iron skillet. The veggies and rice went very well with it. We enjoyed it"

  • "Good food, decent prices and good service but a lack of a barrier between the bar and the restaurant leads to a noise level is seriously flawed. If your looking for a quiet place on a Friday night look elsewhere."

  • "Have been there before, maybe it was a mistake chosen this place for a quick NewYear Eve dinner. Our waiter was new, don't think he was ready to handle the busy night. But that was ok, however; our food was very cold and they brought my husband the wrong dish all together. Spoke with the manager as he was passing by and he was very apologetic, took the dish off of the bill. I don't think our waiter had a clue of what was going on. Most of the time this place is pretty good, tonight was the exception."
