“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

One of my favorite places for Mexican food in SA. The lunch prices are very reasonable. I always order Lisa's plate. Yummy! Also some of the best sauna in town. Rosario's is located in the King William area, close to downtown. As others have said it is noisy but worth the noise for the food.

“Dine with the locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Recommended by locals and guide books for a must stop while in San Antonio. Family friendly Mexican restaurant located in a neighborhood away from the busy Riverwalk. Fast service, great meal, popular with all the locals, as evidenced by the long line waiting to get in as we left. Nothing fancy about the restaurant, but worth the walk to find it. The noise level confirms the quality of the drinks and the popularity among friends!

“Great Tex-Mex three blocks from Riverwalk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Rosarios is a short three-block walk south from the Alamo/Convention Center, but what a difference those three blocks make. The place has fantastic Tex-Mex food, and the smoky salsa is a standout, as are the fish tacos, which are a personal favorite. My mojito was chock full of fresh mint, and I loved the lively atmosphere. The place is always packed with a wide variety of folks, lots of families. Lots to choose from. Not expensive, either.

“An obligatory place to eat in SA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

I love this restaurant. It is noisy because it is always packed - for good reason. Great food with a down home hacienda flair. Gotta love the pralines!

“Authentic indeed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Aririved for a late lunch today-no wait! Amazing, authentic food! Not a fan of the salsa at all (i dont like beans), but carnitas were yummy! The chips were delish too! Excellent & attentive service as well!
