Been here before, good enough experience to come back. Not so much this time. Ordered the fish tacos. The corn tortillas were paper thin and immediately fell apart. The fish was luke warm at best, possibly because the toppings were ice cold. When the server asked how the food was and I expressed the above, his response was "sorry to... More

Very nice restaurant. Everything was very good: attentive service, great food, good margarita - and all well priced (for lunch). If I lived here, this would be a regular stop. If you live here, I envy your access to Rosario's.

We did enjoy our meal! It was sizzling hot and very delicious! But as I said the Parking is Meh! How ever it's worth the effort and I look forward to coming back. Ask for Cory Vera as your Waiter! He definitely knows the food lineup and pays attention to details.

On a recent cold, rainy afternoon, two couples ducked into Rosario's and it was perfect. Great Tex Mex menu, several enchilada plates, and altho' I am not a drinker,someone ordered Sangria and I had a taste, and it was delicious. Homemade tortillas and good nachos. For tourists, Rosario's has a very good local rep, and strolling the Southtown area gives... More

Our last meal of our six days in San Antonio and we found Rosario's. If we had found it on day one we wouldn't have look for another place. I wanted to find the best bar-bq San Antonio had to offer and when my wife said she wanted to do Mexican, not being a fan, I was worried. I shouldn't... More

I came here with five other work colleagues as we wanted a very good Mexican restaurant close to the downtown River Walk. I would say it was a few blocks away but the 'vibe' of the restaurant was that it was downtown. The atmosphere was open and fun for large groups (don't expect to come here for an anniversary if...

Taco Lovers listen up! Order the tacos second down on the right side of the menu. Get one chicken, one steak (spicy) and one pork taco. Corn is better than flour. These things melt in your mouth. Sat at bar watched the game and the staff was amazing!
