One hour lunch and this place works. Convenient parking in back of restaurant. Four of us ordered our meal, ate and relaxed AND made it back to work on time. To me, this says alot. Ordered fajitas which was very good. The other guys ordered various tacos that also looked good too. My buddies order the same stuff all the... More

Had three tacos, two were chicken and the third was marinated pork. All three were fantastic but my favorite was probably the marinated pork. My son loved the fish tacos as well. Overall an excellent place, authentic, friendly, and can't wait to come here again!

I have been eating at this restaurant for over twenty (20) years and I alway find the food to be delicious. The food is never too spicy. I spent some time in private homes in Mexico, the food at Cinco De Mayo is just as good as any home I have been in. You might have to wait for the... More

Loved it. Super nice. Get the nachos. We played music on the jukebox. Had a bunch of chips and salsa. Ate too much food.

We visited this restaurant after a long trip. Be forewarned, this is a cash only business, so don't bother bringing a credit card. The staff was helpful and we got our food rather quickly. I had the steak quesadilla with fish tacos. My wife had the chicken mole. The steak quesadilla was simple but flavorful. It comes with a small... More

I had breakfast here while staying next-door at the Varden Hotel earlier this month. The hotel staff told me this place was very good, and I agree! I ordered the chilaquiles plate and it was very tasty, and at $6.25 it was a steal! They only accept cash, but since their prices are so reasonable you won't need much.

I came to Cinco de Mayo over two years ago and I really liked it. I was recently in Long Beach for work and I remembered it two days before I left so, I took a friend and we loved it. I had the Chuleta's (fried pork chops) and my friend had chicken enchiladas. I don't think my friend took... More

For less than $10, I had a delicious, filling lunch of freshly made, authentic Mexican food. To drink, I had the Agua de Jamaica (ha-mike-ah), a chilled, tart hibiscus-flower tea (a bit like lightly sweetened cranberry juice). I had the special of the day, which was a variety of barbecued pork tacos, with sides of rice and guacamole. This is... More

My husband and I ate here while staying next door at the Varden Hotel. This family restaurant does not look that inviting from outside, but don't let that stop you. I had tacos de cabeza, which you can't get just everywhere. They were fantastic. I also had a Chile relleno, which was very good and not greasy, as they can... More
