“Best Food In San Antonio!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

I have had a long lasting love relationship with El Jarro De Arturo for more than 15 years. The menu selection gives a wide variety of Mexican style foods. From standard selection of enchiladas, fajitas and guacamole to more sophisticated experiences of Rolled Salmon with flash fried spinach, grilled Tuna Anticuchos to my all time favorite, Chipotle Tenderloin with an Arturo Premium Margarita on the rocks. Live Music and dancing on weekends and classic spanish guitar on Thursdays (call to confirm music). Additionally, the Sunday Breakfast Buffet is not to be missed. Reservations Recommended! Take it from HungryJohnnyBoy, you will not be disappointed!

“Fairly good”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We went here recently while in town for a wedding. The menu is large and they offered a Sunday brunch that looked pretty good. We however ordered from the menu. I wasn't too impressed but since family lives nearby, I'm sure we will have to go back again at some point.

“Skip downtown restaurants”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Had the carne asada and it was so tender. Comes with one enchilada, go with the verde.
Service was great and homemade tortillas are to die for. This place gets packed on the weekends.
