    Made reservations for my birthday party waited an hour and a half to be seated not sure why reservations are made if you just get in line behind everyone else when everyone shows up. Hostess extremely rude! I will not have another birthday party there again. Band was aweomse though!

  • Soooo good

    I love drinking here with friends. Decent prices, but nothing cheap.

  • waste of money

    this was our first time here. We had drinks, the margarita was fine, the sangria was koolaid. Nachos: ok but the avocado had black streaks. We ordered the chile relleno and fish tacos. The meat of the chili relleno was old and did not have any taste. The fish tacos were so oily, I could not eat them. The avocado salad was black. As I cook myself, I would never serve food like this. Horrible!!!! don't waste your money.....$61.28 down the drain....

  • There are many gems on the menu

    If you're up in the area, give this a try. The menu has many many items on it, and I think that can make one feel overwhelmed. I also think that it causes the restaurant to lose focus a bit. For appetizers I had what I call a tuna popsicle, since I can remember the name, but it wasn't a popsicle at all--it was grilled tuna on a skewer--the marinade was not over the top and the grill on the fish made it a perfect bite or two. The enchiladas Nortenas, the green corn and chicken enchiladas with verde sauce are both worth it for something different. The tuna entre', while delicious, suffered from a lack of focus--there were too many items on the plate and there was a strange marsala mushroom sauce on the redskin mashed potatoes. They had a well stocked bar and the Don Julio plata margaritas were nice and tart-- The service was a bit confused at times, but overall the ambiance is upper scale tex-mex with nice pieces of art here and there. It isn't the greatest mexican food in the world, but for the price point it is well worth it. There are many gems on the menu, it just may take time searching through it all to find them.

  • The best Mexican restaurant in the world

    The best Mexican restaurant in the food, great atmosphere, and friendship....even after many years of absence Arthur still remembers friends and their family. He is unique and so is his restaurant. We enjoyed ourselves immensely last summer while vacationing in SA and New Braunfels. Arthur, you've never lost your touch......

  • the BEST Mexican restaurant around

    I am not native to San Antonio but it didn't take me long to figure out this is the BEST Mexican restaurant around. The food is delicious and the service is even better. I celebrate every birthday at El Jarro and come up with any excuse to go sit on the patio and have a top notch margarita for date night. When I have clients or famil...y come into town this is always the first place I recommend. The atmosphere is fun on the weekend and you always feel like family. You can
