After 33 years in business, Z’Tejas has closed its original Sixth Street location in downtown Austin. The restaurant first opened in 1989 in a refurbished Victorian house and quickly became a local favorite for its Southwestern-style dishes and margaritas. The restaurant has since expanded to locations in Arizona, California, and Texas.
The closure of the original location was announced on March 15, 2021, with a statement on the restaurant’s website. The statement thanked customers for their support over the years and encouraged them to visit the other Z’Tejas locations in Austin and around the country.
The closure of the original Sixth Street location comes as the restaurant industry continues to struggle in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Restaurants have had to adapt to changing regulations and customer preferences, which has been a challenge for many.
Despite the closure of the original location, Z’Tejas remains committed to providing its customers with the same great food and service that they have come to expect. The company is also continuing to support its employees, who have been affected by the closure.
Z’Tejas is still operating its other locations in Austin, including the Arboretum, the Domain, and the Hill Country Galleria. Customers can also order online for pickup or delivery.
