If you come to San Antonio you have to get to El Jarro. It's only a few minutes from downtown and very easy to get to. Once you are there you will enjoy some of the very best food the Alamo City has to offer. The shrimp tacos are PERFECT. Pair them with a Top Shelf Margarita and you are... More

Live music on Fridays and Saturdays make for a very festive outing! Great variety of delicious offerings - the shishkebobs are a great choice: juicy tender chunks of beef, succulent shrimp and tender chicken grilled to perfection with tasty veggies is one of my favorite dishes. The parrillada de carnitas (tender chunks of spicy pork) is another standout! Don't forget... More

Queso flameado was great! Fresh made corn and flour tortillas! Highly recommend it! Great atmosphere. Didn't have drinks but from what I saw there were many kinds of drinks being made like margaritas to beer to shots. Nice place settings. Very clean and service was excellent! Give it a 5 stars!

Love the complimentary chips & fresh Salsa. Great margaritas & good wine selection. Spinach enchiladas are fabulous. Sunday buffet is extensive. Homemade flour & corn tortillas.

Went for meal, but had the lamb appetizer with margaritas. It was wonderful, i highly recommend that if you don't want a big meal. Great atmosphere--go there to meet up with a "new" friend.

We've enjoyed ElJarro for many years and hope they stay around for many more. Everything on the menu is good; the tortillas and Margaritas are to die for. This is not one of those hole in the wall Tex Mex places. White tablecloths, ambient lighting, and tasteful decor make it a great place to take clients or a date. Live... More

I have travelled to SA for many years and always take new people to El Jarro for a meal and have never received any negative feedback for the food. The freshness and tortillas are the best and the food is always very tasteful. Will continue to make this my choice for Mexican food.

Great service, in fact some of the best we came across during our 2 weeks in the States. The drinks were good value and the marguerites fantastic, the meat for our fajitas was tender and plentiful, so why am I feeling just a little disappointed, despite the fabulous company we had?? Our fajita dishes came sizzling to the table and... More
