Southwestern Flare

By Gretchen Pahia

Looking for a fun place to grab a bite to eat with your family and friends? We have a tasty idea for you.

Z’Tejas Grill just opened a new restaurant location in Scottsdale, and it is a cool spot right on the waterfront. There is something on the menu for everyone, even those with the pickiest of tastebuds. Be sure to come hungry as there is plenty of food to go around.

Looking for fajitas? They’ve got some of the best in town. Looking for a yummy taco or burrito? Look no further than this hot spot. With a range of affordable menu options, Z’Tejas has it all. Every table gets fresh cornbread and butter to start off the meal, and if that isn’t enough, there are a lot of appetizer options fit for two or a whole table of hungry people.

One of our favorites is crab stuffed mushrooms. There are enough on the plate to share, but it was just enough for one. There are also tons of other options including queso dip, salsa trio, nachos, shrimp tostada bites, and more.

There are also several soup and salad options for those looking for a lighter option, as well as classics including enchiladas, tamales, chile rellenos, tacos, and more.

There is a very cool kids menu that has a number of choices for the younger crowd. The choices range from grilled cheese and cheeseburger to quesadillas and nachos. There is also a brunch menu for kids which includes eggs, French toast, and omelets.

Don’t forget dessert. The ancho fudge pie with chocolate, pecans, walnuts, whipped cream, and cinnamon satisfies.

Z’Tejas has two locations here in the Valley. One in Chandler and one in Scottsdale and both are open to the public seven days a week. Hours do vary between locations.
