Today is Spanish holiday known as Cinco de Mayo, which translates to the fifth of May.
Many area restaurants are honoring this day with advertised specials:
- Local chain El Fenix is in the middle of its "5 Days of Deals" special for Cinco de Mayo. Thursday, May 2: $2 Coors Light pint draft; Friday, May 3: $3 large Dos Equis draft; Saturday, May 4: $4 house margarita; Sunday, May 5: $5 appetizer combo. Dine-in only.
- Taco Bueno is debuting a new version of their queso and will be selling it for just 5 cents on May 4 and May 5. Proceeds for the queso sales will go toward local food banks, and Taco Bueno will match all sales from the new queso as well.
- Digg's Taco Shop, which has locations in Arlington and Highland Park, is celebrating Cindo de Mayo by offering $1 off of their traditional house margarita, $2 chicken and pork tacos and free chips and salsa with any purchase.
- Celebrate a little too hard on Cinco de Mayo? Taco Cabana can help.
