    Decent sauce on green chile enchiladas. Not a fan of the wet, shredded chicken. A little overpriced. Good chips/salsa

    Should have had the buffet. Ordered the enchiladas and it did not come with rice and beans. FYI looks like the daily specials don't include the standard sides.

    Puffy tacos and cheese enchiladas

    The green chicken is fantastic. The tortilla soup is terrible. Boiled chicken with cilantro. Tastes like hot water.

    The Cabarito!!!!!.... The Salsa is a little sweet... chips alright, tortillas need to be more fluffy... Indoor ambiance nice, star lights always a pleasure!!!!!....

    Nasty Place! It smells funky in here!

    Beef fajita meat is tender with a nice smoky charcoal taste. Not your typical stringy, chewy low-end flank meat. Tres leche cake is fantastic.

    El Jarro is like the Wayne Brady of Mexican food in San Antonio. I don't know why white people love this place so much.

    BEST MARGARITAS!!!! Food is great...not inexpensive, but so worth the the little patio!

    Not impressed. Must just b famous for their margaritas. Very gentrified Tex-Mex, imho. Tortillas were good & homemade. Skip the enchiladas. Lines out the door on a Friday. Salsa medium, fresh & chunky

    Great weekday lunch buffet!

    Food is great but they need a better AC Unit because it's always hot in here

    Like everyone is saying, the lunch buffet is outstanding. Fresh and tasty. Amazing tortillas, and the Calabacita con Puerco is otherworldly, that is if you REALLY like cumin. ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩

    For a healthier choice, get the special salad with grilled chicken. The dressing is tasty

    Felicia · August 8, 2012

    If you can get past the arrogant pricks called a wait staff, it is a great dining experience. Try the queso flameando
