Best Salsa

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

I have travelled to SA for many years and always take new people to El Jarro for a meal and have never received any negative feedback for the food. The freshness and tortillas are the best and the food is always very tasteful. Will continue to make this my choice for Mexican food.

Great service, in fact some of the best we came across during our 2 weeks in the States. The drinks were good value and the marguerites fantastic, the meat for our fajitas was tender and plentiful, so why am I feeling just a little disappointed, despite the fabulous company we had?? Our fajita dishes came sizzling to the table and... More

We love their menu but our favorite dinner choice is the carnitas for two. The house margarita on the rocks is the best in San Antonio! They offer a wonderful buffet on the week-ends! This is a local favorite!

I've been reading reviews that complain a lot about service, and to be honest, service is not always topnotch. We've been going to this restaurant for some 30+ years. We love the margaritas in particular and the food is usually very good but we stay with the same every time. That we've learned works better for us. Music is available... More

I've been here many times, almost every time I visit San Antonio. The location is great, the atmosphere is great, the staff is great, and the food is the best.
