Wonderful atmosphere and appetizers. We had a great waiter, Motts, who was as helpful as he was pleasant. He took the time to give us suggestions as well as to chat with us.

Very fun place to eat! It was our first time eating at a Z'Tejas, and there were a lot of great options to choose from. We were there over happy hour, and we created a meal of appetizers that were each $3 off their regular price. Alex was our waiter, and he was excellent. Great guy, great recommendations from the...

Not a helpful or friendly bartender. Ordered drinks at the bar, he barely recognized we were even there. Drinks were fine, but service was not.

I actually love all Z'Tejas restaurants that I've ever visited and that's been over a period of about 25 years starting in Austin, TX and on to Scottsdale and the metro area. We were in Scottsdale last Saturday and stopped specifically at the Fashion Square Mall location only to eat at this Z'Tejas location. We were greeted by a super... More

We also had a really great waiter, the girl at the front desk was really sweet also. The food -- no so much. The waiter guided us to the queso appetizer (thank you!) and that was yummy. There was a stingy spoonful of guacamole as part of the appetizer as well. I ordered the fish tacos -- the fried fish... More

Stopped here for lunch when visiting my friend in Scottsdale. Wish I knew our waiter's name, as he was magnificent! Shared a cheeseburger, as we had dinner reservations that evening. Probably the BEST burger I ever had!!

We tried Z'Tejas based on other reviews and were not disappointed! My husband had the Habanero Chicken Pasta and I had the Smoked Chicken Chili Rellano. Both were amazing. The pasta only had a bit of heat but a lot of flavor. The chili rellano was incredible - not the standard egg batter dipped but rather grilled. The green chili... More

We have been to this restaurant for happy hour many times when we are in Scottsdale . It was one of our regular " happy hour " venues , but have decided that it is no longer good value for our $$. Quite disappointing.

We make a point of visiting Z Tejas every time we are in the Valley. The Sanbord margaritas are to die for. We have had several in one night. Top it off with the Chili Verde Pork Nachos and you will think you died and went to heaven. The food has so much flavor, not just heat in it. The... More

Friendly greeting and seated promptly. I thought the offerings on the menu were mostly spicy. The corn bread was $4 but worth as part of the cost going to the Pat Tillman Foundation so we ordered. It was good, just like the bread I make with a jiffy mix. The tortilla soup was delicious. The fajitas were good. If you're... More
