Restaurant Chain Z’Tejas Files for Bankruptcy and Closes Some Locations

By  | 

Z’Tejas is a small Tex-Mex restaurant chain with locations in Arizona and Austin, Texas known for their delicious cornbread and brunch options. But the Statesman reports that Z’Tejas is having business woes, and they have now closed four locations. Texans will be interested to know that only one of their Austin locations has shut down. According to KXAN, “The locations at the Arboretum and Sixth Street in Austin will remain open, the company said, but the Avery Ranch location at 10525 W. Parmer Ln. has closed.”

After four Z’Tejas locations were permanently closed, the company filed for bankruptcy in Arizona. This marks the second time in the past two years the company has had to do so. The Statesman writes that Z’Tejas first opened in 1989 in Austin, and they briefly had a California location, as well. Officials say they plan on taking this time to refocus and continue providing great food to their customers.

On Facebook, reviews of Austin’s 6th Street location are, overall, very positive. “I’ve never really thought of Z’Tejas as a ‘chain,'” Amanda Ventura writes. “This restaurant had that 6th St. charm to it that made it really unique! The only thing that wasn’t different [from the other locations] was the quality of food. I could eat that cornbread forever.”
