Food was good , but they try to hard to create gourmet Mexican food. Texas folk know good Mexican food does not try too hard. Don't lose sight of the prize. Did enjoy the food and will go back. Drinks, another story. Too expensive for what they are. Nuff said. If you want a margarita with dinner, go for it.... More

Food tasted bland and microwaved...just didn't have the freshness they used too. I had to add fixings to the guacamole dip to give it flavor. Environment was so loud we could not have a conversation without yelling.

Very casual. Went for a late lunch and sat right down. Very big place so plenty of seating. Full bar. Service was attentive. Had the chipotle chicken entree and it was fantastic. Some of the best table salsa I have ever had at a Mexican place. Came recommended and it did not disappoint.

I ordered the Albóndigas con Arroz – “Mexican meatballs made with a combination of ground beef, pork and herbs. Braised in a rich and spicy broth. Served with rice.” I have had Albondigas soup before and I really enjoyed it. This was not good. First off, it wasn’t a soup or stew, which is what I expected. It was meatballs... More

Delicious food and margaritas. Recommended by friends who live in San Antonio, about a 1/2 mile walk from the River Walk. Friendly, helpful service. Much better food and prices than the River Walk.

We were recommended to go to Rosario's by our concierge on the Riverwalk since we were dining with or children and requested authentic Mexican with ambiance. The place is busy, loud, and vibrant. The artwork and the guests make it seem like you're in a great place. Until the server comes and doesn't return for 20-30 minutes at a time!... More

I stopped for dinner, by myself so I sat at the bar. Service was top notch and so were the top shelf margaritas. Food was OK...I've had better, but I've had worse. It's loud in this place, so be prepared fir that.
