There’s a reason that food critics and journals have named Rosario’s Mexican Cafe & Cantina as one of the best places for Mexican food in San Antonio, and it doesn’t just have to do with the food. If you want to experience Mexican food at its finest, and in an atmosphere that is inviting and upbeat, check out this cantina at the next opportunity.

A Fun Place for Date Night

Rosario’s is a great place for date night in San Antonio. Not only is the food great, but there’s also a great drink selection, and the prices are just right (around $10-$13 an entree). Plus, the atmosphere is a great combination of casual and romantic, catering to dressy clothing or casual. The restaurant is also great for a first date, as it’s not too fancy, keeping the pressure off and the night fun and relaxed.

Great Bar Menu

Rosario’s is nearly as famous for its bar menu as it is for its food. The Tica Tica margarita is amazing, the sangria will quench your thirst, and the lemon ginger martini is unique and tasty! If you like to try new beverages that you can’t find anywhere else, or if you’re a lover of the traditional Mexican margarita, you won’t be disappointed by the selection here.

Live Music Makes it Fun

Another reason that people really dig this place is the live music. The music is up-front, which provides a perfect view for just about every table in the restaurant. Not only will you find people bobbing their heads along to the beat, but don’t be surprised if couples start dancing, too.

Marvelous Mexican Food

The food here is pretty incredible, and can be classified as a combination of authentic Mexican and some Tex-Mex flavors. Try the mole enchiladas that are filled with chicken and topped with peanut mole sauce and cheese; the shrimp nachos with garlic shrimp, pico de gallo, cheese, and guacamole; the tacos callejeros, which are three corn tortillas that are stuffed with refried beans, your choice of beef, chicken, or fajitas, cabbage lime slaw, fresh cheese, and avocado; the chalupas compuestas with your choice of meat, and refried beans, guac, cabbage lime slaw, and cheese; or the parilla de carnitas de puerco, which are marinated pork tips that are served with grilled onions and peppers, and can be ordered in a size portion for two. Whatever you get though, we’re pretty sure you’ll be pleased with it.

Authentic and Delicious Desserts

Before you leave Rosario’s, you have to try one of the desserts that everyone here raves about. The churros and chocolate flan are two must haves, and the churros will come served with whipped cream and melted chocolate sauce.

Perfect for Everyone

Rosario’s caters to just about everyone, and has gluten-free and vegetarian items on their menu. Additionally, the restaurant is suitable for kids, so feel free to bring them if they love Mexican food as much as you do.
