Cinco de Mayo is more than just holiday time in Mexico.
May 5 has become a popular day for Americans to consume Mexican food, drinks and culture.
And there are deals to be had.
On Sunday, you can load up the plate with $2 tacos, drink up $1 margaritas and take advantage of other discounts. There are a few freebies, too, and some offers start early.
Brad Plothow, vice president of brand and communications for Womply, a small business software provider, said Cinco de Mayo is a huge sales day for taco shops and Mexican restaurants. The company analyzed sales at 42,000 local restaurants for 2018.
“Expect to encounter big crowds if you’re planning to visit your favorite Mexican restaurant or taco shop,” Plothow said. “According to our data analysis, we expect Sunday to be one of the busiest days of the year at Mexican eateries.”
And if money is no object Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar has brought back its $100 Prime Margarita for the month. The drink features premium alcohol and is served in a diamond-cut Baccarat Crystal Tumbler, that you can take home as a memento.
