Known as a festival of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War .
Some amazing Mexican dishes you can find are nachos, quesadillas, tortillas, guacamole, and especially tacos. Of course you can fill your stomach with some of these mouth-watering foods from Boston Pizza and Kelsey’s while you sip on a nice cold MARAGRITA!
For the most part, the holiday of Cinco de Mayo is more of a regional holiday in Mexico, celebrated most vigorously in the state of Puebla. There is some limited recognition of the holiday throughout the country with different levels of enthusiasm, but it’s nothing like that found in Puebla.
