With your kitchen's cheese graters and lime juicers inhabited by the evil spirits of dead cheese and limes, cooking Mexican food at home has become both time-consuming and spooky. Get quality cuisine without interference from crazed kitchenware with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of casual Mexican eats at Tink-A-Tako location #14, or $20 worth of food at locations #5 and #11. This Groupon must be redeemed in one visit.
Though the menus and pricing vary slightly (#5 and #11 are similar, while #14 carries a larger variety of plates), each of Tink's locations boasts a flavorful flotilla of authentic Tex-Mex combinations, entrees, and a la carta offerings, as well as Mexican-inspired breakfast plates to nourish flightless early birds. While the aroma of homemade tortillas tugs at your nose-strings, enlist a battalion of tacos filled with meaty barbacoa ($2.29), asada ($1.99), and other delightful fillings. Festoon signature enchiladas with one of 10 different sauces, such as enchiladas rancheras ($6.69–$6.79), or partner a lonely enchilada with a seven-ounce steak in the tampiqueño dinner ($8.29–$8.35).
Plant a shallow desert root system at Tink-A-Tako's #11 or #14 locations for a sit-down dinner, or catch a summery breeze in a sail fashioned from fresh tortillas on the lively patios at #5 or #14. Each location is a casual eatery with a friendly staff, speedy service, a comfortable dining room, and a palpable absence of sweaty ghosts.
Sandra Arias was only 12 years old when her family first arrived on American soil. Her parents opened Tink-A-Tako to serve authentic tacos, enchiladas, and Mexican specialties, establishing a legacy that would grow across two decades to 11 locations throughout San Antonio. Today, Sandra, her brothers, and her sister still oversee the kitchens, directing culinary crews as they stuff savory meats into homemade tortillas, adorn enchiladas with a selection of different sauces, and simmer up the chilaquiles. Out in the dining areas, colorful Mexican artwork, ornamental chili peppers, and an absence of Canadian flags give off an authentic Mexican feel. Many locations also boast full bars, outdoor patios, and drive-thru windows.
