Tacos and margs for all.

The historical context of Cinco de Mayo references the Mexican army’s victory over France during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. For many, especially in the United States, it has become a day that people celebrate with Mexican food and margaritas—the day is not as widely celebrated in Mexico. For the occasion, on May 5, restaurant chains and brands are offering deals on tacos and drinks so you can partake respectfully. Cheers!
Prefer celebrating at home? Try these Mexican hot sauces or Mexican beers to honor the day.
