Located in the heart of Southtown, Rosario's is packed every night. It can pack in even more now that they are in a larger (but just as lively) location just a block from where the restaurant used to be. Sip on a perfectly crafted frozen Margarita as you enjoy enchiladas, carne guisada, pork tips and so much more. Do not miss Rosario's on Friday nights, when it offers entertainment by some of the best bands in South Texas. Get there early to snag a table and enjoy dinner, then prepare to dance yourself silly.
The whole experience was very pleasant. The food, service,and atmosphere were nothing like these restaurants around who supposedly are supposed to be the best. Rosario's was excellent! For those who enjoy shrimp try the shrimp nachoes, they're the best.
The restaurant that you will go to twice in a three day visit to San Antonio. Our favorite restaurant. Best value, best food, best staff. Very casual, three can fill up for less than $20. Place is packed, expect a 20-30 minute wait. Seats 100+ (estimated). There's a reason it's packed it's great food. The salsa is the best we've had in TX.
I read from this site that this was the #2 rated restaurant and had to visit during the trip to San Antonio. We took the trolly from our Riverwalk hotel and found it thanks to the driver. The food was okay, the atmosphere was okay, and the service was good. However, I spent the last night of our vacation hung over the toilet. Something got me sick...real sick!
I love the tuna margaritas and the shrimp nachos are delish! I also would recommend the mexican ceasar salad with shrimp. The only thing I dislike about the place is how busy it gets which makes it hard to have a conversation, and the fact that they will not seat you if everyone in your party is not there.
Located in what is now called Southtown, it's a great location for tourists. As for me Southtown wouldn't be the best location for this restaurant. But as for the food it's really the best. It's mexican food at it's best lacking all the grease that's plagued by San Antonio's tex-mex cuisine. Rosario's has some of the best fish tacos that I've eaten, next to La Tuna. It was nice to see vegetarian meals on the menu, something which isn't really much of an option in San Antonio. I recommend you to stop on by and eat some great food, though once you are done you'll want to hurry and head out of southtown because it's filled with people whom think they are grasping what is art and think they are better than you.
Unless you're a tourtist that just has to go because all the brocures say it's so good.(it's really not) Or you're a yuppie that just has to be seen there, then skip this place. Go to a real Mexican eatery. Personally, I'd pick one that's owned by a real Mexican in the first place.
We've been going to Rosario's since before they moved to their current location, and we've been loving it! Awesome authentic Mexican food, great margaritas (favorite is Sangria), and awesome salsa. The music is wonderful on Friday nights, but as mentioned, it can be a little too loud while eating if you're in the front room, so try and get seating in the back if you can (can be a difficult task as they are usually quite busy). Service is not always top notch, but I've never left complaining.
