Z "Tejas Southwestern Grill

Z'Tejas Is a great restaurant at The Gateway.  This past week I stopped in for lunch and it was delicious.  In fact, I'm already planning my next visit.  They have menus for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch.  But they also have good sized vegetarian and gluten-free menus.

Z'Tejas starts you out with their fresh made cornbread and whipped honey butter.  It is skillet baked every 30 minutes and served warm at your table.

We tried their cast-iron skillet dumplings with pork and shrimp.  I would recommend them.  But we also saw a neighboring table with the Table-side Guacamole.  We are planning that for our next visit.  It looked so delicious and fun to be made table side too.

We ordered the Anchiote Chicken Chopped salad.  It is served as above but then dressed by your server at the table with a ranch vinegarette.  I loved the table side service with the salad.  The flavors of all the ingredients blended to make a perfect filling salad.

We also had the Blackened Catfish Tacos. The ingredients taste so fresh and you can tell everything is made to order at Z'Tejas.  These tacos will definitely be ordered again.  They also come on the appetizer menu.

A must order for the chocolate lover is the Ancho Fudge Pie.  Their famous fudge pie is made with walnuts, pecans and a pinch of ancho chile to bring out the rich chocolate flavor, served warm with whipped cream.

The service at Z'Tejas was exceptional.  We were seated promptly and had just the right amount of attention through out the meal.  It was a great lunch all around.

This week Z'Tejas is having several specials but they also have Happy Hour Specials every day between 4:00-7:00 pm featuring $5-$6-$7 appetizers.  Most large enough for a meal.  And many hand mixed drinks too.
