Our 6th Street location, the first Z Tejas, is located in a charming turn-of-the-century Victorian home. This Z Tejas is conveniently located in downtown Austin, close to many businesses and leisure activities, and features a large patio for outdoor dining. Z Tejas on 6th Street is a popular Austin destination and in 1999 celebrated it's 10th year. A recent expansion has added a treetop bar as well as banquet and special events facilities that can accommodate up to 70.
Jack Gilmore, Chef at Z Tejas Downtown AustinI've worked in kitchens for 22 years. From the gulf coast of Texas and Louisiana to the desert of Arizona. I started at Z' Tejas in Austin nine years ago. My philosophy of cooking was very simple - put together everything you have learned and use it. Be humble when it does not work out and be glad when it does. I try to make all our guests satisfied. It is great when eight different people come in and every one orders something different and all is enjoyable.It all started in a little place in Austin, Texas where four friends, who were also chefs, agreed to disagree. These chef/friends had come together to create a new dining experience and to open their first restaurant, Z Tejas Grill Austin. In developing the menu, one chef enjoyed cooking with a Southwestern flair. A second preferred the Cajun and Creole flavors of New Orleans. The other two chefs prepared their recipes with the creativity and freshness of California.
Soon, the chefs of Z' Tejas Grill began to borrow and share ingredients and recipes with each other that created a cuisine we've dubbed "Dining South by Southwest" and result in the flavors you'll find at Z' Tejas Grill. At Z' Tejas Grill, we pride ourselves on having a menu that has something for everyone. You can come in for lunch or dinner, or share appetizers at the bar with friends while enjoying our famous frozen margaritas.
