What we ordered: I started with a Frozen Margarita, which was both tart and sweet. Very yummy.
I was disappointed to find out that Chips & Salsa are not complimentary at Z Tejas but I got over my disappointment minutes later when our server brought out two pans of complimentary Corn Bread, hot from the oven. It was soft on the inside yet slightly crusty around the edges, baked to a golden brown. Slightly sweet and even better with a small amount of soft butter.

Another companion ordered the Grilled Shrimp Tostada Bites. There were four tostadas topped with black beans, marinated grilled shrimp, fresh veggies (carrot, onion, avocado, peppers, cilantro) and queso fresco. These were delicious! They were slightly messy but had a lot of flavors and textures that went great together.
Another companion ordered the Tortilla Soup, which didn’t resemble most other Tortilla Soups that I have had. It was thick and made with roasted chicken, avocado, tomato, onions, and cheeses. Topped with blue corn tortilla strips. Thick and zesty!
Overall Impression: Our service at Z Tejas was outstanding. Our server was excellent and so was the food. The Austin location is the original Z Tejas location, with sister restaurants in other Texas cities as well as Arizona.
