We were there with a large groupThe service was pretty good given the size of the group. The place was very loud. The food wasn't bad (although my wife beans and rice weren't hot), but it wasn't great either.

Not bad.. just not great! It is very average food. I was with a dear friend, so had a Fabulous time. But the food was not that great. We had a Great server, which made the experience nice as well. Just not that impressed.

I do not remember seeing a side room. I was there for lunch and it seemed crowded and conversation would be difficult. Food was outstanding. I would call to see if they can accommodate you

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.
