Join me in welcoming Z’Tejas, a favorite to many Austin-natives, to San Antonio, TX! I had the honor of enjoying the complimentary cuisine during a VIP preview at Z’Tejas this past weekend and I was not disappointed! This 275 seat restaurant at the newer section of the Shops at La Cantera includes an open kitchen, massive dining on the patio option, with plans to expand to other areas of San Antonio eventually. I really liked h ow the restaurant was laid out, a larger section was definitely a more traditional dining area but there was also a sports bar section with big screen TVs playing the various college football games, and with the recent beautiful weekend weather, the patio was an airy delight!
We selected three enticing appetizers from the menu followed by 5 tasty entrees (well, 4 entrees and one well-portioned kids meal), and shared 2 sizzling skillets of peach cobbler. Previous restaurant goers had beat us to the bread pudding with green chile punch, since everything is fresh and homemade, once they’re out, they’re OUT.
Right now, happy hour is slated from 3pm-7pm (LOVE the 7pm), Monday through Friday. Appetizers are half off, sitting ANYWHERE in the restaurant. They’re also considering a reverse happy hour once things get settled. There are also great drink specials that sounded very competitive.
Mimosas, Bloody Marys and Marias COMING SOON!
A little bird also told me that starting in December, Z’Tejas San Antonio would also offer a brunch menu w/ incredible mimosas, bloody marys, and bloody marias! There will be freshly stocked tomato juices, fine champagnes, top shelf vodkas, oh, and a lot of great food menu items too!
The original Z’Tejas opened in a Victorian-style house on Austin’s infamous 6th Street, still popular with tourists and regulars.
