After 30 years of business, Z’Tejas will be closing the doors of its original Sixth Street location in downtown Austin. The restaurant opened in 1989 in a refurbished Victorian house and has since become a staple in the Central Texas community.
The restaurant has made a name for itself over the years, serving up Southwestern-style cuisine and cocktails that have attracted locals and tourists alike. The restaurant has also been a popular spot for special events, from birthdays and anniversaries to corporate gatherings and holiday celebrations.
In a statement, the restaurant said it was “with heavy hearts” that it had to close the location, but that it was proud to have been part of the Austin community for so long.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of the Austin community for the last 30 years,” the statement said. “We have seen many changes in the city during that time, and we are proud to have been a part of the growth and development of the area.”
The restaurant said it plans to focus on its other locations in Austin and the surrounding area, and that it is “committed to continuing to serve our guests with the same great food and hospitality that they have come to expect from us.”
