From the moment we set foot in Cafe TeJas, we fell in love. The quirky atmosphere, the receptive staff, the well-priced offerings... all phenomenal. We visited early on a Friday night, and while it wasn't very busy at first, as the night went on it...became clear that THIS was the place to be. The music was energetic, the crowds were lively, and the vibes were undeniable. The number of new friends and connections we made here were unprecedented on our stay, and the amazing time we had here will never be forgotten. If you're ever in Santa Ana, do NOT sleep on this gem of an establishment. You won't regret a trip to TeJas.More

Our server Rodrigo was very welcoming with great service. Cafe Tejas has a cozy atmosphere with a good selection of tapa style dishes. I can recommend it for dinner or just a beer.

This is a must visit in Santa Ana! The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming, with good music and great food (especially the tapas). From cold beers to strong and delicious cocktails, some games of pool to live bands on a Saturday, this is THE...place in Santa Ana to unwind in the day or have some fun in the evenings. Thank you guys for your hospitality, we loved our visits here during our stay in Santa Ana!More

We loved our time in Santa Ana, helped a lot by the amazing hospitality of Basa (the owner) and co. He and his staff went out of their way to make us feel at home there -he and his wife Ameera even invited us into...their personal life as friends and took us to see some awesome stuff and introduced us to the local scene! We tried the tapas style menu and loved it. The kebab skewer and the broccoli and steak fondue type dishes were deeeelicious. I would recommend this place to anyone who’s in Santa Ana looking for a place to feel at home and for an opportunity to get to know some of the locals and get a real feel for the city.More

Wife and I visited for lunch based on the great reviews. We were only people there but service was very slow (staff were playing pool) and when food came it was all pretty awful - we asked for their recommendation (tapas). Cold, tasteless garlic mushrooms,...garlic bread with virtually no garlic butter on, half a sausage in a dry piece of baguette, pork ribs that were more chewy fat than anything else..well you get the idea. The place looks cool and can imagine it would be fun for drinks...just don't eat there.More

We visited Cafe TeJas with my husband on a Friday night. Friends who are local suggested we end our night at the cafe. We have to say it was the best night out in Santa Ana. Staff was super friendly and treated us and all...customers like family. Drinks..... awesome! food..... delicious! It's safe and great environment! If you're looking for fun night out with drinks, fun and dancing; you should definitely visit cafe TeJas.More
