I thought this would be an awesome spot since I saw so many people here. However, that changed rather fast. We waited for a table which was fine, so we decided to do drinks at the bar. So far so good. We get our drinks and waited a bit then we get called to our table. So far so good.... More

We stopped in for lunch and had great service. Like others mentioned, the parking is limited and we ended up parking down the street and walking a short distance. The staff was friendly and stopped at our table often. I was impressed with the variety of vegetarian menu options. I ordered the quinoa chile relleno, which was very good. Overall... More

I was so excited to check this place out. We walked from the central market all the way over to rosarios. The wait staff was very nice and attentive. The food was not all that great. I love Mexican food/ texmex but this was just overpriced and mediocre. The salsa was just charred tasting which I think salsa shouldn't taste... More

My wife and I ate at Rosario's while in San Antonio. Even though we were staying on the Riverwalk, we tried Rosario's to get away from the crowds. The atmosphere was nice and comfortable, not to dressy. The wait staff was very accomidating. We ordered enchiladas but couldn't decide on the sauce, so the waitress brought 3 different samples for... More

Alex, our server was fantastic! He gave us some excellent recommendations and was on top of his game even on a extremely busy Saturday night. The "handshaken" margarita was off the charts! We were very pleased to have selected this option with no idea on what to expect.

Rosario's is a very hip spot with really good food! The service is friendly and the food came faster than expected! Great place to stop but parking is a little scarce.

I travel to San Antonio often and the most disappointing thing about all of my trips is that it wasn't until the last one that I found this restaurant. I have never liked any of the "Mexican" food on the river walk. This place is so different. Get off the water... not that far off, just a couple of blocks.... More

Rosario's was just the meal our family was looking for. The kids meals were great and the Rosario tacos were amazing. The pork fajitas were not the greatest due to the fatty meat but that was our only bad choice. This is a large restaurant so even if it looks crowded the wait isn't long. We made the mistake of...

I think the chips usually give you a good idea of a Mexican restaurant's overall food and Rosario's chips were warm, thin, and crispy :-). Unusual salsa - but I liked it. The staff were friendly and it's a pretty restaurant. Food was good - nothing extraordinary, but good solid Tex - Mex!
