This week is Cinco de Mayo which means that a lot of Tampa Bay restaurants are going to be celebrating. We featured 7 Tampa Bay area businesses with Cinco de Mayo specials that are going all out for the holiday. We think the best way to celebrate Mexico’s win against the French is to support local businesses!

Since Tampa Taco Week took place last week, a lot of places are celebrating Cinco de Mayo with tequila or margarita specials. Still, it’ll be worth it to head to these places for a proper celebration. Creative Loafing told us about the 25 celebrations and bar crawls. To see all 25 celebrations happening in Tampa, click here.

It’s also highly recommended to make a reservation. Many of these places are going to be packed with people celebrating. The best way for you to be seated without a super long wait is to make a reservation or call ahead to see if you could be put on the wait list before you arrive.

From the best Birria Taco, to cheap margaritas, here are some ways to celebrate Cinco De Mayo in Tampa Bay.

  • Los Chapos Tacos

  • Green Lemon

    Green Lemon in Tampa doesn’t have any food or drink specials on the menu for Cinco De Mayo, but they are doing something a little different to celebrate. They’re giving away goodie bags to the first 300 people. They’ve even hidden a $300 gift card in 5 of the bags. Doors open at 11a so start your day off there!
