My hubby used to love the steak here, the center cut filet with onion Demi glaze. He was so upset, he said it’s more like fajitas now. It’s almost as though they went from having a chef to just a cook. The drinks & queso...More

After walk through Grafity Park we stopped by Z' Tejas for late lunch. We enjoyed the amazing honey sweetened cornbread, the catfish benighs (a fancy name for corn-breaded deep fried fish) and the cilantro pesto rubbed trout salad. The margaritas (we tried 3 different ones)...More

We loved coming to either of the 2 locations for ZTejas in Austin for brunch when we were in town visiting family. Breakfast and brunch were good but we really came for the banana nut muffins which were large and awesome and worth traveling miles...More

I've been here multiple times and have never had a bad time. The chips, salsa, and guac are all on-point. The queso dip is also amazing. Overall, I could eat here everyday and be happy. The best thing is their margaritas which have a great...More

I do not remember seeing a side room. I was there for lunch and it seemed crowded and conversation would be difficult. Food was outstanding. I would call to see if they can accommodate you

This is where it all started - the original Z'Tejas. We converted it from a turn-of-the-century Victorian house, preserving as much of its Old Austin Character as possible. Today, our cozy nooks and patios are part of the 6th Street legend.Live music plays every Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6PM-10PM.
