Have been coming here for years. Now only one time a year when we are back in town. Some of it is just nostalgia but we have many fond memories. The enchiladas and the soups are great!

Not sure how to describe this "Mexican" restaurant. The only place to compare is Hugo's in Houston. In a word,El Jarro is outstanding. It is soooo nice in many respects. The service is impeccable. The menu is excellent. And the make a mean margarita. I had "Susie's Surprise" - carnita tacos very well presented with a mango avocado sauce. The Arturo Margarita was excellent.

I can't complain about anything in this Northside SAN Antonio establishment but can recommend this as a go to restaurant if you are anyplace close to San Antonio. Excellent in all respects.

The food is amazing. Everything I have ever ordered has been delicious. The margaritas are also very good. It is a family owned business, so everything is prepared with pride. The tortillas are prepared fresh right in the middle of the restaurant. It gets crowded on the weekends. There is a live band on Friday and Saturdays nights. Great place to eat and dance it off. Good Time had by

This was a recommendation for us so we tried it. The food was ample but spicy. The margarita was the worst I ever had. They had a live music but disco music in a Mexican restaurant seemed a bit odd to me. Prices were a bit high. The restaurant was crowded and tables were very close to one another.
