El Jarro is a very traditional sort of upper-end Mexican restaurant, the sort that was exotic.

For more than 30 years this has been a favorite San Antonio spot for upscale and innovative Mexican cuisine. It's tough to choose between the beautiful, festive dining room and the garden-lush outdoor dining patio. And it's also tough to choose from among the diverse entrées, antojitos (appetizers), and desserts. Start out with the botano (sampler) platter to get a sample of the flavors, and then consider the house-specialty fajitas or chicken fundido (swathed in melted, white Mexican cheese) for the main course. The best value, however, is the extensive lunch buffet served weekdays 11-2. There's a full bar, live music on the weekends, and a kids' menu.

The food was very good

The service was excellent and the food was outstanding. My husband and I were a little surprised at the price of the margarita but it was well worth the price...very good. Loved the fact we were brought chips and salsa while waiting at the bar for a table. The chips were warm and salsa was fabulous. We will definitely go back!

El Jarro's - as we call it, has been THE FAVORITE dining place for us for 25 years. If you are looking for upscale TEX-MEX with excellent service and a funky, Mexican/Texas atmosphere, and super food and drinks don't miss El Jarro's. We go here when we are happy to celebrate, when we are sad to get happy and just generally to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and excellent food. If you like margaritas - of all kinds, their's are the BEST. (Warning, they don't spare the tequila)! The wait staff is well-trained, the cooks are fast but good and on weekends there is even great music to accompany all that food and drink. Go early on weekends or be prepared to wait. It is out of the way for tourists because of its location, but it is full of us regulars. I think it is the best-kept secret in San Anontio and because of the popularity we regulars often don't brag about it, but don't miss it if you come to our city!
