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.

Rosario's was recommended by several local folks and did not disappoint this East Coast resident. Reasonably priced Tex-Mex, well prepared and served promptly. I thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant - they don't take reservations but we arrived at 6:30 on Friday night and were seated straight away. This is a great alternative to all of the restaurants on the Riverwalk -... More

Enjoyed a quick Saturday evening meal here in January. Arrived around 6pm, parked on the street in front of the school behind the restaurant. Free. Restaurant was busy but they got us seated within 15 minutes. Waiter was nice and professional, got our drink orders and we started reviewing the menu. No combo plates here, which was surprising.

This is not a place I could recommend if you want mexican food in San Antonio, despite the great Guacamole. The dishes are regular and you get better Steaks on the Riverwalk. Rather try out places on the Riverwalk with more charm and flair.

We ate there today. Only had about a 5 minute wait. The food was good. Server was friendly. The wait for our food Was about 10-15 mins so not to bad, especially since we had a group of 11. The prices were very reasonable. I would definitely recommend to others if in the area.

A business colleague who lives in San Antonio treated us to dinner at Rosario's. It was outstanding in every way. The menu is extensive with a wide range of authentic offerings. Loved their Margarita's. I had the sautéed shrimp with rice. Everyone lived their food. Service was excellent.

Rosario's is definitely known for serving the best salsa in San Antonio. Their menu is serious food. Did you know that Rosario's was the very first restaurant downtown to ver play Salsa? That's true too - I can confirm it! August 1993.

Stopped here after finishing the Mission Trail. Cute Restaurant, Jorge our server was very good and accommodating. We enjoyed our entrees, I had Enchiladas de Mole and my husband had fish tacos. Very fresh and yummy! The chips and salsa was really good, enjoyed it very much. We would recommend this restaurant when in San Antonio. We had a car... More

It is a little walk from the Alamo, but nice. It feels like a family atmosphere. The tortillas were warm and fresh. The enchiladas mole were very good. I like their check in system. They use your mobile number and text you when the table is ready. I'll definitely return.
