Cinco de Mayo is usually the time to head to your favorite taco restaurant and order a bundle of food to celebrate the Mexian celebration. But with many restaurants remaining closed for dine-in, Americans might have to celebrate differently this year.
Luckily, many food establishments have had to adjust to the restrictions around the COVID-19 pandemic. Restaurants such as Chipotle and On the Border are offering discounts and bundles to celebrate the holiday, which commemorates the Mexican Army’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
The year is coincidentally doubling down on the festivities by celebrating Cinco de Mayo on Taco Tuesday.
Many Cinco de Mayo deals require delivery apps, such as Uber Eats, Grubhub and others as many restaurants are still operating with takeout and delivery.
Participation can vary by location. To be on the safe side, check with your closest location before ordering online.
