Great drinks, particularly the specialty Margaritas. The shrimp tacos with a ceviche appetizer are delicious! Very busy, loud, casual atmosphere. I will go back!

It's great to entertain people. Food is good and lots of uppity people. Will accommodate large groups. Close to King William district. Parking sucks though.

Rosario's is a San Antonio classic. The food is excellent. The service is impeccable. I have only dinned at Rosario's for lunch, usually with business associates. Prompt service and attention get us in and out with in a timely fashion. The dinning room is very large so we never experience a wait. My only concern with Rosario's the parking. YOYO,... More

Wonderful salsa! Delicious new style Mexican food. The dining room is all hard surfaces so it can get loud but the food is wonderful. Even better if you can come at an off-peak time. You will have a hard time parking so we always walk from our hotel or the riverwalk.

This is a great place to get some quality Mexican food in downtown, but away from the Riverwalk. Turnover is fast but there is often a bit of a wait. Great margaritas too!

The food was amazing. The atmosphere is lively and noisy. We walked from downtown and I was a little hesitant when I heard there was a long wait. It was completely worth the wait! I had the beef and shrimp fajitas. The taste was terrific. The amount was generous. I wish I had split the order with my husband. There... More

My wife and I have been visiting San Antonio for Valentine's weekend and have on multiple occasions driven by Rosario's. It looked like a good place to visit and they had high ratings on various social networks. On the last day of our visit we took the plunge and had lunch at Rosario's. We couldn't be happier! The food is... More

Stopped in for lunch and we were not disappointed. Delicious smokey salsa and tasty margaritas. Fish tacos were fantastic. It's a big place with a lot of happy energy. Lots of families with kids at lunch time.

Thank erinsy
