Good Food and Entertaining Evening

In our continuing search for great Mexican food near our home in Schertz, my wife and I enjoyed a Golden Margarita, Chicken Flautas and Beef Fajitas. We had made reservations with a request to be close to the night's entertainment featuring our favorite singer, Yesenia McNett. Not only did we get... read more

El Jarro has the best enchilada's in all of San Antonio, in our opinion. They are full of (beef, cheese, chicken, etc.), that you may have in mind. Service is excellent, buffet for lunch, entertainment in the evening. Fabulous margaritas!!!

A buddy and I stopped in to El Jairo on a Saturday after a long day of traveling through the hill country. We had to wait only 5 minutes at this busy place. The wait was well worth it. The food was fresh and the service spot-on. I wanted to order the fish tacos, but the waiter persuaded me to... More

One of the BEST I don't want many to know about only because I don't want to wait long to be seated. But, seriously some of the mexican meals I've had in the Alamo City have been served here. Professional staff will ensure you are taken care of. If you are looking for fast food go elsewhere. However, if you're... More

If you come to San Antonio you have to get to El Jarro. It's only a few minutes from downtown and very easy to get to. Once you are there you will enjoy some of the very best food the Alamo City has to offer. The shrimp tacos are PERFECT. Pair them with a Top Shelf Margarita and you are... More

Live music on Fridays and Saturdays make for a very festive outing! Great variety of delicious offerings - the shishkebobs are a great choice: juicy tender chunks of beef, succulent shrimp and tender chicken grilled to perfection with tasty veggies is one of my favorite dishes. The parrillada de carnitas (tender chunks of spicy pork) is another standout! Don't forget... More

Queso flameado was great! Fresh made corn and flour tortillas! Highly recommend it! Great atmosphere. Didn't have drinks but from what I saw there were many kinds of drinks being made like margaritas to beer to shots. Nice place settings. Very clean and service was excellent! Give it a 5 stars!

Love the complimentary chips & fresh Salsa. Great margaritas & good wine selection. Spinach enchiladas are fabulous. Sunday buffet is extensive. Homemade flour & corn tortillas.

Went for meal, but had the lamb appetizer with margaritas. It was wonderful, i highly recommend that if you don't want a big meal. Great atmosphere--go there to meet up with a "new" friend.

We've enjoyed ElJarro for many years and hope they stay around for many more. Everything on the menu is good; the tortillas and Margaritas are to die for. This is not one of those hole in the wall Tex Mex places. White tablecloths, ambient lighting, and tasteful decor make it a great place to take clients or a date. Live... More
