Went to Rosario's last night for dinner. Had about a ten minute wait a 6:00pm to get in. We ordered the Queso and it was very good. We ate it all. I followed that with the Camarones al Mojo de Ajo which is Gulf shrimp,...marinated in garlic lime butter, grilled with onions & bell peppers. Served with poblano rice. It came with hot tortillas and a side of guacamole and pico de gallo. I ate almost everything, but wanted to save room for their chocolate flan. All the food was hot and tasty. Tables were spaced well and wiped down as soon as they were vacated. The wait staff all wore masks. I would eat here again.More

Cheese enchiladas with mole sauce are amazing! The pineapple jalapeno margarita will light you on fire, it was way to spicy for me. They do offer margaritas to go which is fun.

My wife and I stopped by Rosario's early afternoon in between sightseeing stops. Our waiter was efficient and friendly. Margaritas were happy hour cheap and good. Salsa was brown and smoky with the right amount of heat, not the ketchupy fare you normally get. Our...waiter put us onto the Cascabel Tacos, and I cannot recommend this dish enough-pork was very tender, and the sauce was like nothing I have ever had before. Would have stayed the whole afternoon, but the Alamo was beckoning.More

Went with the family for lunch. Started with a ceviche dish. That was completely awesome. Everyone’s food was delicious and perfect. Drinks were great, service was superb and food was delicious. Couldn’t ask for more. Great job with spacing out for COVID-19. Will be back...and recommend to everyone.More

I’m sitting here as I type this. The fajitas have no flavor at all. The glasses were dirty. There was black particles floating in my water. This place is a waste of money. I don’t recommend this place to anyone.

Whenever I'm in San Antonio, this is my must stop for dinner! Go early, because you don't want to miss their chile relleno (it can sell out).

I had the cheese enchiladas and the carne sauce. My husband had the taco trio. It was authentic and delicious. Reading these reviews I wish I had tried the salsa but I didn't know it was so popular and it does not come with your...meal. The service was very good. Food came quick! I would recommendMore

I have visited many.... Believe me, many Mexican restaurants in San Antonio. For me, Rosario's is so good, I can't stop thinking of it every time I'm craving for a great Mexican dish. Try it. You will love it.

Great food and staff. The salsa is the best I have had and the food is really good. The chicken enchilada with the white sauce is unique with a little sweet taste to it. It is a great combination. The staff was really friendly also....Recommend to give this place a try.More

Yes, the location at 9715 San Pedro in SA (outside Loop 410) does have a patio. They only serve on the patio in really good weather, so be certain to call and ask before you go. This is not the main Rosario's that is in... More
