I came here for a work function last
week and everything went very well. It was about 13 of us and we received great service all evening. It was open bar and I first ordered just a regular margarita which was ok but for the next few I ordered the Arturo margarita which is like a Mexican martini. Now that one packs a punch! The food was buffet style and we were served anticuchos of beef and chicken, both were delicious and tender. There was also some picadillo which I like because it had sliced almonds in it and a nice flavor to it. We also had some chips n queso (ok), taquitos and quesadillas along w lots of salsa and those warm tortillas. Everyone seemed happy that evening. Now I will say its not a place to order Tex-Mex but the rest of the food has been pretty good in the past. I've been coming here off and on for the past 10yrs and will probably keep coming back.
Their Sunday brunch is so very tasty
and has breakfast as well as lunch offerings. The waitstaff is friendly and easy going. If you get there early the place will be almost empty since the church crowd hasn't let out yet, but worry not the crowd will get bigger and bigger. The restaurant caters to an older crowd, but is friendly to the more youthful patron as well.
Fabulous food, awesome atmosphere, and
great date spot. This place was suggested by the front desk staff at the hotel. Excellent choice. We had the Red Snapper with Capers and Fresh Fried Spinach along with Salmon with Fried Spinach. There was a live band that played soul and R&B that just set the atmosphere. It's a must go to spot. This place is better than anything I have had on the Riverwalk in San Antonio. I WILL BE BACK.
My friends and I have been going to El
Jarro for 27 years and the experience has always been great. Their lunch buffet is the greatest. Everything is tasty, hot and prepared to perfection. This is the only restaurant where I can't complain about the Spanish rice (It's always hot and tasty, not cold and old like in other restaurants). An excellent restaurant, worth the trip from anywhere in San Antonio.
