You can probably find better Mexican restaurants at home, but this will do for a quick fix, especially once the margaritas kick in. A huge, multilevel restaurant decorated cantina-style with corrugated sheet metal on the outside and wood and brick on the inside, Zest offers chicken and cheese burritos, shrimp enchiladas, tacos, and other Tex-Mex fare, as well as steaks, hamburgers, and very good salads. Service can be slow. If you're wearing stiletto heels, beware: I saw several lasses snared by the wide-planked flooring, which made for an interesting sideshow.
You'll find other Zest Cantinas in the Ginza at 1-2-3 Ginza (tel. 03/5524-3621), in Shibuya at 1-6-8 Jinnan (tel. 03/5489-3332), and on the fourth floor of Mediage on Odaiba (tel. 03/3599-4803).
