Whenever the topic of food comes up, I always joke that I should have been born either Mexican or Italian because I love their food. So any excuse for Mexican food is one I grab. Like Cinco de Mayo. Sure, sure. The reason we in the United States celebrate it is sort of blurry. It’s the anniversary of a Mexican victory at the Battle of Puebla, but we’re all “Yay sombreros and margaritas.”
And restaurants are all about it as well. So many host a fiesta with special deals on food and drinks, live entertainment, and more.
To help you figure out how to celebrate, we put together this list of the best Cinco de Mayo deals and freebies.
Cinco de Mayo isn’t the only national day filled with freebies and deals. For a full list, check out our the Top 20+ National Days For Freebies And Deals and mark your calendar so you don’t miss anything.
