Aldaco's hosted my carefully budgeted wedding, Based on some of these reviews, I was concerned. I'm hispanic and was worried the food wouldn't be authentic tasting, but it was in a great location and it was within what we could pay...I didn't have to be so worried, though. The food was great! The tortillas were homemade, the buffet setup was clean, looked nice, and plentiful! A lot of people got second servings. Everything was perfect. I called so many places for reasonable prices, and everyone charged more just because I had an event. I was married at Marriage Island downtown, and Aldaco's even did a courtesy shuttle for all our guests to the restaurant at no cost! We had fun pictures on that shuttle. And no ridiculous fees for a wedding cake they didn't make, and minimal fees for the toast! Most of all, everything was decorated simply, yet perfectly, and the brick in the depot made a wonderful background for photos, as well as their outdoor area with its beautiful arches. I literally cried, everything was so perfect. Tara Valdez was the event her. And request Albert to be the main waiter...EXCELLENT! That man gave us his entire attention and immediately responded to requests, And the shuttle driver made me feel like a princess...Aldaco's, thank you so very much for making my wedding day so beautiful, and still leaving us some dough for a nice honeymoon. We will forever be thankful for the great memories we were able to have. -Martha Long

I have eaten here twice and have enjoyed my food. The fish tacos are great, although I had the chips and salsa last time and my tooth broke in half on a chip! They are very hard, to say the least. Place is always quiet which is nice, but I wish they were open for dinner.

A group of ten attempted to eat lunch here. We did make a reservation and the only good thing I can say is that our table was ready upon arrival. Waitress did make a good effort to offer good service. I ordered the chicken a la parilla. Chicken had good flavor and was tender, rice was dry, no flavor and under cooked, beans were sour and needless to say unedible. Wait time was extremely long, long enough that we had to eat our food in less than five minutes in order to get back to work. We even had co-workers that left without eating. We were never offered refills on our drinks, tortillas or even an opportunity to order dessert. No one ever even came around to see if we needed anything, needless to say we won't be eating lunch here again and we will never recommend it to anyone else.

Our recent visit to San Antonio left us starving when we arrived to our hotel (Staybridge Suites). So we walked across the street to Aldaco's and realized we had arrived just in time for Happy Hour, woo hoo! Happy hour started at 3, which included $3 margaritas (maybe $4, can't be for certain). Anyways, after a couple drinks and some fajitas, we left out of there full and satisfied. The beans are awesome! Some of the best I've ever had (this is coming from an Arizona native). The rice was kinda dry. If you stay at Staybridge suites, make sure you show them your room key, you'll get a free appetizer. The service was great too, very friendly.

This is a nicely-decorated restaurant in the train station facility. The chips & salsa were better than what one typically gets. I had the Steak Fajita Plate, which came with yellow, medium-grain rice (which I thought was rather mealy), a good bean soup, tasty steak, and all the accoutrements. This food wasn't bad, but I found it a bit dull. I guess it's worth checking out, though. RJT

I waited over forty minutes for my food plus the food was cold and my fries was salty.

Big disappointment. The online pictures of the meals don't reflect what you actually get. Food wasn't the great. Ordered Rib-eye steak and got something more like Sirloin. Would tast/feel the chili poweder on the enchiladas...not very authentic Mexican food. A beer was accidentally tipped over and spilled as a result of a busy waiter and wasn't wiped or cleaned the whole time we were there. Our waiter also dropped one of the entrees prior to serving it...making the evening there an unpleasant experience. The margaritas were extremely strong; suppose that was to somehow distract from the awefull experience. Top that off by the waiter adding a 20% gratuity to the bill; could have enjoyed dinner at Red Lobster and spent less than I did at this place for a group of 4. I suppose the fact that there wasn't many people should have given us a hint of what to expect. Definitely not going back.

Holy cow! This place charged $12.95 for a really crappy buffy. The food was okay, but not $12.95. Lets put it this way. The plates, forks, and cups (little 8 ounce ones) were plastic! Also, for that price there should have been a dessert or two. Not worth it.
