It was amazing to go back to Rosarios in South San Antonio and enjoy suizas enchiladas yummmy. Still a great place to enjoy casual Mexican food.

My San Antonio food writer friend said we must have lunch here, and she didn't steer us wrong! I had chicken mole enchiladas--and they graciously modified my strange request to leave the tortillas out (I know, I'm a weirdo...but my jeans must fit...). Delicious! Sister had a top shelf margarita which also delivered. Service was great, from hostess to waiter.... More

This restaurant nails TexMex. I went two days in a row because I couldn't believe how good the chicken mole was, and I wanted to see if they could replicate the perfection. They did.... It's amazing food every time.

We were in San Antonio 8 yrs. ago for our honeymoon, staying at a nearby b & b. We had dinner here several times during our stay. We were pleased to find the restaurant had not changed when we were there last week. Food is still delicious, service great and margarita's still amazing.

While I haven't tried every Mexican place in San Antonio, I've eaten at a handful over the years and this was by far my favorite. I especially enjoyed the fried "Russian Roulette" peppers. As advertised, most of them are mild but every so often you get one that's on fire. Great fun. Both our entrees were delicious -- we had... More

We always try to get to Rosarios every time we come to San Antonio. It's tucked away on Alamo street not far from the convention center, so its an easy walk from downtown. My wife had two shrimp tacos with charro beans (frijoles de la charra). I had chicken fajitas with charro beans. It is difficult to explain the taste... More

We ate lunch mid-afternoon at Rosario's in the San Antonio airport. The food and service were both very good. My husband ordered the chicken enchiladas verde (2) with refried beans and rice. I ordered the chicken fajaita tacos (3). Both meals were very good! I also enjoyed the Rosario's original frozen margarita, which was excellent. We thought the prices were... More

Parking is a major issue. We went on a Sat night. Drove around for at least 10 min before we found somewhere to park about three blocks away. There was six of us. Had to wait about 45 min to be seated. Service was very slow. Their hot sauce is very different, I didn't care for it. Had a smoky... More

Really good Tex Mex in an historic southtown setting. Great for lunch or dinner. The fajitas are so good.

This is my favorite restaurant to go to! I always go back for the Mole Enchiladas. Never like them anywhere else but here.
