Diner Reviews
  • "Thank you again to Z'Tejas for another great visit. We'll be back."

  • "If you are downtown for a concert, jazz game, or anything else at the ESA, this is a great location for dining before the event. Good food, good service, and fun."

  • "Dollar for dollar, the best food I have had in a long time. Excellent at a low price. Only complaint was the dessert was bland, cheesecake clearly not made in house. Of course, we didn't expect a great dessert at a southwestern restaurant."

  • "The food was great!! Wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Reasonably priced and you leave full!! I would eat here again."

  • "I was very disappointed with the food. My chicken burrito was not good at all. The chicken wasn't cooked well and it was filled with more onions and tomatoes than anything. My husband was disappointed with his salmon. He said it was a very little portion and the flavor wasn't great. Definitely not worth the price we paid. We will not be returning."

  • "Normally we do not celebrate Valentine's Day on Valentine's Day because of the crowds and the inability to get into anywhere to eat. This year we gambled. I made reservation for Valentines Day for a time that worked best for us and we made it in and were seated with in seconds of entering the restaurant. It was so great to have a stress free and hassle free night. Our server was fantastic. We were seated in a spot that was just perfect for a romantic dinner. The food was divine. It was a fantastic experience that made my entire night."

  • "Z'Tejas is one of our favorite restaurants. This past Saturday, however, we took all of our children and their spouses there for dinner and was, of course, expecting it to be exceptional, like it always is. I ordered one of my favorites, the Chorizo Stuffed Pork Loin, unfortunately, the recipe has been changed, and I was not impressed. The sauce was just okay, but the pork itself was overdone and quite dry. The garlic mashed potatoes had been replaced by sweet potatoes which would have been okay, but the sweet potatoes were still crunchy and not nearly done enough. The restaurant was quite busy, but we had a hard time getting our waiter to pay much attention to us - we never did get the extra chips that we had requested."

  • "The food was great! The restaurant is accomodating to big groups, reservations, kids. Prices were fair and location is easily accessible with a lot of parking close by. With validation, even parking is affordable."

  • "Because we dined on a concert night, we thankfully made a reservation on Open Table. It saved us!! We were seated right at our reservation time. The menu is great. There is something for everyone, even the picky eaters. While our server was terrific, the bar service was painfully slow. We had to ask for our drinks multiple times. The second round came as we were leaving."

  • "Great food and outstanding service! Has become the go to place when we are in the area! Super convenient when shopping at the Gateway and I would recommend the valet parking."

  • "We had been frequent guests until recently and realized we have missed this place. We need to visit more and would recommend it to anyone. I know it sounds funny, but you have to try the Macaroni and Cheese and the Tableside Guacamole. They are both fantastic and they have other great pastas and salads."

  • "Always great food with great service. We go because of broad vegetarian options for the wife. There's always something for both carnivores and vegetarians."

  • "We ate there on New Years Eve 2013 with a group of 8 adults. Our waiter was very attentive and did a great job. The free fresh cornbread they bring out is good and they refilled our bottomless chips a few times. We ordered the Five Cheese Mac and Anchiote chicken for $15.50. It is over priced and the chicken was dry, over cooked and too hard to cut through. We also ordered the Pepita Crusted Chicken for the same price. It was much better and the chicken was very moist and flavorful. It does not come with anything else on the side. We have been several times and enjoy the ambiance and flavor of this Tex-Mex restaurant. It is close to the heart of downtown SLC and the Trax train stops right in front and is free to ride throughout downtown."

  • "Using the reservation we made with OpenTable, our table was ready for us immediately upon our arrival, which was great on the very busy New Year's Eve. Our server was very attentive and responsive to our needs. She compensated for the one less than marvelous aspect to our experience, which was an overcooked meal. We will be back."

  • "We made 4:45 pm reservations, and it was a good thing we did. The place was "hopping" when we left. Unique food, nice atmosphere, great service. Could expand the wine list though, :{ . If we are ever downtown again, we will certainly eat here."

  • "First time at this restaurant and it was a very pleasant experience. Came with family and the food was good, although the temperature of the food could have been warmer, but it was tasty. The environment was pleasant and the waitress was helpful but not overbearing. I would return and invite others to come."

  • "I went to ZTejas with my family for my birthday. There were 8 of us and the service was timely. The food was awesome. Everyone enjoyed their selections."

  • "Instead of asking "are you finished" the waiter and bus staff just take food and drinks off your table. A bit awkward when I was only 1/2 way done with my drink that cost $8.00... I would have liked to finish the expensive drink before it was wished off my table..."
    Dined on 11/11/2013
  • "A well balanced, eclectic menu. Well prepared, very good service, excellent drink menu. Does southwest food right. Food has a good blend of flavors and spices without being overpowering."
