A really great place. I can't give it 5 stars though. Service was a little lacking. Guacamole was good - made at the table but didn't have any "kick". I asked for jalapeño peppers and the waiter brought out chunks of peppers, not finally chopped peppers for guacamole. The Patron Martinis were excellent - I must say and a new... More

I really love this place we've been coming for 10 years and the food is always good. My favorite is the Achiote Chicken Salad and my husbands is the mushroom enchiladas. I didn't give it 5 stars on this visit though because the waiter was pretty bad and they said the cornbread was going to take 15 minutes. 15 minutes... More

Four of us loved the skillet-baked corn bread for a cause, along with the 4 different menu items we got: Tejas Trio, Wild Mushroom Enchillada, Z/Burger, & Southwest Pesto Pasta with chicken.

This restaurant has been here for a long time and is really popular with the young crowd who don't mind noise, but is not so good for those of us who don't want to yell at each other. The food is Southwestern rather than Mexican, and is good, but not excellent. No free chips and salsa.

Waiter who served us was great. Staff was friendly and helpful. However, the place looked dirty and not well maintained. The food was good, not great overall. Baja Fish Tacos were good but would have been great if they put more mango salsa on it. The amount was so small. The Street Tacos were very good. The Barbacoa Enchiladas were... More

So yes, it was a Saturday night. I was with my husband and mother in law, but we are all go with the flow kind of people. We were seated in a smaller back room with 2 very large groups of 20 something year old young women (like 15 at each table). We should have guessed something was up when... More

Nice deck and $5 margaritas during happy hour. They also had discounted bites to eat, but we just sat on the deck, enjoyed the weather and sipped a drink. Good staff, nice place to take a late afternoon drink. We did not stay later as sixth street gets a little rowdy for us at night.

After asking for a waiter after over 5 minutes, we ordered our favorite dish--jerk chicken salad, dressing on side. Mine came out with a bunch of sauce, none on my husband's--never had sauce on this before. Salad greens were brown and wilted. Chicken was cold. Not at all good. Manager took off our bill and was very nice. Stopped in... More

We stopped for Happy Hour and loved the food, service and atmosphere. Thanks Aaron for all of the information on the area. We enjoyed visiting with you. The Grilled shrimp & Guacamole tostada bites were delicious.

My husband & I went to dinner here with my daughter & her husband based on my daughter's recommendation. Everyone's meal was delish. The service was excellent. We'll definitely return.

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.
