South Coast Plaza is known for having fabulous shops and restaurants, but did you know that there are some equally fabulous happy hours too? Well, you are in luck! It is possible to feel fancy, while keeping your budget in check. How fabulous is that? Z’Tejas at South Coast Plaza offers amazing food, delicious drinks and a lovely atmosphere all for a great price!
At first, it is the patio that intrigues with its surrounding fresh flowers and party lights strung festively above, but it is the happy hour that makes one stay. Inside the restaurant is great, but the patio is where it is at. With most happy hours being restricted to only the bar area, Z’Tejas honors their happy hour on the patio. So, on a beautiful California afternoon, get outside and enjoy some food and drink.
The happy hour is pretty amazing. Why? Well, happy hour is Monday through Friday 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm, which is a good amount of time. There’s more.
Wait for it…
Happy hour is also available on Saturday and Sunday from 2:00 pm until 6:00 pm!! Yes, that is happy hour everyday! Very exciting isn’t it?
Whether it was a rough day at work or just living it up for the weekend, it is important to start with the drink specials.
Need a cocktail? Great, Z’Tejas has a selection of delicious and figure-friendly cocktails for only $6!
- 6th Street Rock or Frozen
- Skinny Margarita
- Skinny Cucumber Mule
- Hard Day
- Tejas Mule
I really like the Hard Day, even if I’ve having a wonderful day and I really recommend the Tejas Mule. It is fantastic spin on the Moscow Mule, using Tequila inside of the traditional vodka.
You love your beer? Me too. Domestic beer is only $3.50, while craft and import beers are only $4.50.
If you like to slow it down with some vino, then sip on a glass of house wine for only $5.
Okay, now that we’ve drank some, we are getting hungry. Let’s talk grub. There is a delicious selection of appetizers available on happy hour that range from $6 to $8.
- Spinach and Mushroom Quesadilla
- Catfish Beignets
- Tejas Trio
- Chile Pork Verde
- Smoked Chicken Quesadilla
- Tableside Guacamole
- Blackened Catfish Tacos
- Grilled Shrimp and Guacamole Tostada Bites
- Seared Rare Sesame Ahi Tuna
- Cast- Iron Skillet Dumplings
- Street Tacos
I definitely recommend the Tejas Trio and the Street Tacos. The portions are large and the flavor is on point. Z’Tejas also provides their signature skillet cornbread complimentary and it is amazing!!
In addition to a daily happy hour, Z’Tejas also has daily additional specials. For instance, Mondays are ½ bottles of wine day.
The weekends are really fun, because specials are offered all day. There is a weekend brunch from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm with a $6 Weekend Fun Bar which allows you build your own Bloody Mary, Bloody Maria, Screwdriver and Mimosa. Parents are going to love Sundays, because kids eat free after 4:00 pm. Don’t forget the happy hour is going on from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm on the weekends too. Sounds like a family fun day to me!!
If you are looking for a happy hour that will fit your budget, but also satisfy your taste buds, then make your way over to Z’Tejas any time of the week.
