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!

Went for dinner while in San Antonio. The food was very good, the waiter was very attentive and nice, and the price was a really good deal. Can highly recommend Rosario's!

Highly recommend, my family and I were bursting at the seams and we still ordered dessert, which was the best part. The Arroz con Leche and Cajeta Crepes are incredible.

Parking: If going with a larger group, carpool if you can...the parking here (downtown) is ridiculous and non-existant around the restaurant. I personally love walking around this part of town (old town scenery), but during a business lunch we were a bit more strapped for time. Seating: This place is huge and very deceiving when you first walk in...tons of... More

I went to Rosario's for the first time about 3 years ago when I was in San Antonio on a business trip and loved it. So when I needed a place for another meal during a business trip, my first thought was Rosario's. The first time, I went for lunch when the place was not very busy. The second trip... More

Walked here on the recommendation of a local. The chips and salsa were excellent. The tacos were good. I had one chicken and one steak. Both were good but next time, I would just get the chicken. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. This place is loud. There was a table having a little gift exchange next to us they... More
