After a long day wrangling horses or driving cattle, cowboys traditionally cooked their beans by riding directly into the sunset. Take a safer sun-dappled mealtrip to historic Sunset Station with today's Groupon to Aldaco's, a Zagat-rated eatery located near the Alamodome. Choose between two options:

  • $7 for $15 worth of lunch
  • $12 for $25 worth of dinner

Once a bustling depot, the historic Sunset Station, built in 1902, is now home to Aldaco's community atmosphere, friendly service, and savory lunch and dinner menus. Blaze flavorfully away with a lunchtime order of pollo a la parrilla, grilled chicken breast with signature zesty crema al chipotle or crema cilantro sauce, or half and half of both ($8.25). Or try two beefy-beef enchiladas filled with beef ($7.95). Lunches are all served with rice and frijoles borrachos. At dinner, open a stomach dialogue with an appetizer of cocktail de camaron, Chef Kris Martinez's signature shrimp cocktail poached in white wine and spices and tossed in cocktail sauce with tostada chips ($9.50). Vegetate with a veggie enchilada, stuffed full of sautéed spinach, mushroom, and monterey jack, with roasted poblano white wine-cream sauce ($12.75). Or fire up your taste buds for a spice-laden arrachera a la brava, a hefty chunk of beef skirt steak marinated in lime, jalapeño, garlic, and a secret spice blend, which professional food detectives believe could contain volcano and cumin ($18.95).

Aldaco's downtown shuttle makes eating until you can't walk an option with free pickup and drop-off service, although you can also save some room for the pastel tres leches ($6.25) and fill your sweet-tooth tank with a triple-dairy confectionary threat.

At whatever time you choose, this Groupon is not valid toward the purchase of alcoholic beverages or at the Stone Oak location.


Aldaco's at Sunset Station tied for this year's Critic's Choice in the enchiladas category in the San Antonio Express-News Readers' Choice Awards. The restaurant is Zagat rated, and Frommer's highly recommends it. Eight Citysearchers give it a four-star average:

  • With its original wood beams, murals of Mexican scenes, wrought-iron room dividers, and large plants, the high-ceiling room feels very festive, and an outdoor patio adds charm. – Frommer's
  • The best Tex-Mex you could want but presented in imaginative ways. – JackS8054, Zagat
