ABOUT Z'TEJAS

Z’Tejas opened its doors nearly three decades ago in a small Victorian house-turned-restaurant in Austin, Texas. The setting offered an intimate experience, where hand-made food blended with a curated environment. Pouring our hearts into every recipe, we were inspired by guest feedback, which validated the original Z’Tejas promise to use the freshest ingredients in every authentic and delicious Southwestern dish.

Shortly after opening, realization struck. We needed more space than just this small Victorian location! Now, almost 30 years later, Z’Tejas is proud to be sharing our bold twist on Southwestern cuisine throughout Texas and Arizona.

MISSION STATEMENT


Since its’ founding in Austin, TX, Z’Tejas has been serving Southwestern cuisine with bold, flavorful twists. Our chefs work hard to create authentic, memorable dishes with only the best, fresh ingredients. Mexican classics like Chili Pork Verde, tender Carne Asada, and Grilled Shrimp Tostada Bites can be found on the menu, as well as Asian and Caribbean-fusion dishes like Cast Iron Skillet Dumplings and Jerk Chicken Salad. Freshness, quality and a commitment to hand-crafted cuisine are present in every delicious bite.

Each legendary dish and drink is served with our warm, welcoming charm. Families, friends and groups of all sizes always receive a friendly Z’Tejas welcome as they enjoy our vibrant, innovative dishes. It’s a unique culture that we have cultivated over nearly three decades and we’re proud to share it with our communities. That’s what we like to call The Spirit of Z, which is the essence of hospitality; exceptional care for Z’Tejas’ guests – making them feel welcome, in an authentic, local place – where they can have a memorable experience with great food, drinks and exceptional services. All in an environment where they can’t wait to return again.

As we joined communities throughout the region, Z’Tejas stayed committed to giving to local causes. Over the years, we have found great satisfaction in hosting charity events. We see it as our way to say “thank you” to each community for welcoming us into their hometown and that philosophy is woven into the “Spirit of Z”: Austin Roots. Arizona Legend
