Saw this restaurant on a food show thought i'd give it a try but we were disappointed. The ambiance is nice but upon arriving to the restaurant we were seated quickly but not given any menus nor our drink orders taken. We were asked if we were there for brunch but they didn't explain how the whole thing worked. We... More

We have eaten here numerous times, and have taken food out as well. The food is always fantastic in taste and appeal. Monday thru Friday they have a buffet that is excellent. Their soup is very good. I would recommend this place to anyone that likes Tex Mex or Mexican dishes, as the quality and presentation has always been first... More

El Jarro is our go-to Mexican restaurant (in fact, the ONLY Mexican restaurant that my husband will go to). The restaurant has a sophisticated and varied menu and the well-trained waitstaff does a great job. You can actually taste the tequila in the margaritas (that's a good thing). We're lucky to live close to El Jarro de Arturo.

It had been many years since we had eaten at El Jarro De Arturo, but after the last visit it will become more of a destination for us on future trips to San Antonio. First of all the service was great. Our waiter was Oscar and he was excellent. He was very knowledgeable of the wine offerings and was friendly... More

The service was TERRIBLE. The appetizer was delivered with the meal. We ordered family style and NEVER received plates. We all ate off of small plates already on the table. The waiter was inattentive and had a condescending attitude. Obviously, they only cater to their regular clientele. We were VERY disappointed.

El Jarro has been our favorite Mexican restaurant in San Antonio for many, many years because the food and the service are consistently excellent. While El Jarro offers excellent Tex-Mex favorites, their unique dinner specialties are the best choices on the menu. Lately, I've become hooked on their amazing shrimp tacos, over stuffed with giant jumbo shrimp, seasoned with garlic,... More

This place is awesome! If you're looking for authentic Tex Mex, this is the one to visit. The food and service is wonderful. You can get everything from delicious enchiladas, tacos, kids meals or even pasta with cilantro cream sauce. Someone is always there making fresh, flour tortillas by hand! Chips and salsa comes with everything, even with the $8... More

We had not been here in ions but bought a Groupon and went with family. What a treat. Our server was awesome. He was prompt, patient, efficient, friendly and got all the orders correct. The food was plentiful and very good flavor. The menu has a large variety of choices in different price ranges. The groupon worked fine but could... More

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the US. The Chile con Queso is the best around and Maria's Tortillas have no peer. The quality of food and the service are excellent. Go early because the restaurant is always crowded.
