Cinco de Mayo Deals to Take Your Fiesta to the Next Level
¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo! Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican victory over the French in the 1862 Battle of Puebla, but many Americans embrace it as an opportunity to appreciate Mexican culture. And since food is such an important part of any culture, eating Mexican food to celebrate the holiday has become overwhelmingly popular.
This Cinco de Mayo looks a little different than most. While restaurants may be open in some parts of the country, other areas have restrictions that may limit availability. Some restaurants are still offering deals that could help you recognize the holiday with a delicious meal, but these offers may vary based on local regulations. If you’re unsure of whether your local restaurant will participate, you may want to call ahead to find out.
If you’re ready to celebrate, here are some of the top Cinco de Mayo deals this year!
