Disappointing. We were there for Mother's Day brunch. They were not prepared to handle their crowd, and we had a reservation scheduled for when they opened. Service was terrible, and the food was mediocre at best. There were a lot of places we could have booked brunch for Mother's Day. Thought we'd do something different, and chose Z'Tejas. We won't be back. Very disappointing experience.

I have been to a Z Tejas many times and was really looking forward to this meal but it was just okay. The food was good, the service was not so much *the restaurant was not busy but our server sure was* and the ambiance is more family/kid friendly than I remember. It was not quite what we were after, and although I recommend for a family meal, for ladies night out it was just eh

Very good service. Corn bread was great. Meals were good, but nothing special.

It was excellent, we all cleared our plates. I wish it was a stand-alone location. Will return!

I had an OpenTable reservation for two at 4:30 p.m., for dinner. We checked in, in a timely manner and proceeded to have our dinner. Upon checking in with the young gentleman at the hostess/greeting stand at the entrance, I mentioned "specifically" to make sure that I would be checked in correctly so that I would receive my dining points with OpenTable. We ate dinner, and the food was good. Service was timely.

However, when I returned home to give my review here on OpenTable, I was shocked and surprised to be marked as a "No Show" for my reservation in which I was indeed present. I was then totally inconvenienced at having to call Z'Tejas, to rectify this matter. I can say though, that the current manager on duty that I spoke with, named Dillon, was absolutely fantastic and terrific in rectifying this error quickly so that I would receive my points. I am a VIP here with OpenTable, (at least 90+ reviews approximately), and have never been a "No Show" in my life! Thank you Dillon!

Please train your employees in how to enter OpenTable reservations correctly into your system so that other patrons are not inconvenienced in this way. A complimentary appetizer or better would sure be appreciated here, as it was very stressful for me to have this resolved, and should not have happened in the first place. It is extremely rare that I will post a review such as this.

I thought the food was very good. We did not have to wait very long for our food, even though it was very busy.

Although, I was disappointed in the peach cobbler. Peaches were scarce and not flavorful.
The ice cream was the saving grace.

They now charge for their famous Cornbread and the Ruby Trout Salad was terrible. No taste, no presentation. Sorry to see them change for the worse. Not going back.

Once again we weren't disappointed with the food and service that we experienced at Z'Tejas in Scottdale. Looking forward to our next trip to Arizona so we can visit Z'Tejas again.

Good for a feel good meal. Restaurant is in Fashion Square Mall tucked away near food court. Best item may be cornbread which is made every 30 minutes.

Love the margaritas and the mac and cheese. The Diablo chicken pasta is amazing as well.

Was doing a little early shopping and had a nice relaxing dinner before hitting the stores again. Our server paced the meal perfectly. All the entrees looked and tasted fantastic.

It's funny but we were talking about how good everything was and count figure out why we had been away so long. All I can say is we won't be repeating that mistake

I had a date with my girlfriend, and it was the first time for both dining at Z'Tejas. We really enjoyed the food and the service provided. The server reviewed the menu and was readily available for questions and answers. Thank You again for the great experience we had on our date.

I've had the Southwestern Crab Cake Appetizer twice this week! If you like seafood, I would definitely recommend it.

I tried the Southwestern Crab Cake Appetizer for the first time. Scrumptious! I took a chance and it paid off. It was very good, and was a nice portion size, as it comes with three mini-crab cakes, with a tasty edible cabbage-like garnish, which is almost like a salad. Very filling. I would order it again.

I had eaten here many years ago when it was much smaller. It is now a medium size restaurant at the edge of the mall food court. Wonderful food, great service, and a self serve bloody mary bar. Great idea and a very popular one. We all enjoyed our meal.

I have been to Z'Tejas before several times in the past, but took a long break because of previous inconsistencies in the kitchen, in which sometimes, could be hit or miss with the food. However, this time was definitely a "hit"! My Smoked Chicken Chili Relleno Entrée, was flavorful, good, and served at the proper temperature. Service was very good.
