Cinco de Mayo is a little "mom & pop" Mexican Restaurant and Grocery Store that caters to the local Mexican population. There isn't much in the way of ambiance, but the food is authentic, outstanding and cheap! The service is great and the staff is friendly and helpful. Since none of the staff speak fluent English, ordering off the menu is an adventure! The menu makes an attempt at being bilingual (in English and Spanish) so even if you don't speak Spanish, you'll have an idea of what you are ordering. With group effort amongst the staff and my limited Spanish, we ended up with food items we were happy with and we all had a good laugh.

A la carte items range from $1 to $4 and platters are about $8. The restaurant has a good selection of Mexican beers and imported sodas. For something really different, try a fruity Mexican milk shake called a horchata.

Favorite Dish: I ordered a goat meat (barbacoa) tostada, cheesy cactus (nopales asada con queso) and a Mexican sausage taco (taco con chorizo) and a Mexican apple soda (Sidral Mundet.) Fresh onion & cilantro, tender meat, lettuce, tomato, lime were featured in my choices and they were delicious! Mom ordered a great enchilada rojo platter which included delicious creama (mexican sour cream) cotija cheese and rice and beans. Yum!
