I've always liked Cinco de Mayo, especially the carnitas tacos. Portions are extremely generous, service is fast and friendly. The margaritas are pretty good too. A good, solid choice for Mexican food in the area.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant around! They have the best salsa I have ever had. I always get Tacos de Carne Asada. This dish is always delicious! Fast and good service!

Being from California we were Hungary for some comfort Mexican food. She had the combo and I had the chili verde. We had two beers and the total was 37.28. The waiter seemed disassociated from his work. The food was hot and prepared so quickly that I was suspicious. Her chili rellanos were in a bell pepper rather than a... More

I'm not a huge fan of Mexican restaurants simply because their main focus is always fajitas. Their food had me wondering why they did or cook things certain ways. For example, who fries a burrito?! Then who puts just meat in a burrito?! The food falls FAR short from real mexican!

We've been going to Cinco for years because their service and food is consistently good. We ordered the chicken fajita for 2 and it was served promptly, the ingredients were cooked perfectly and there was so much that we took some home. We enjoyed some margaritas - I love their jumbo Texas !!! The staff is always friendly, smiling, efficient.... More

I hosted my family to the Cinco De Mayo buffet for lunch. The restaurant was very clean, and the service was excellent. When I read the reviews on TA , I was reluctant to try Mexican Food in a buffet setting. The selections were very good, the buffet table on the small and crowded side. Overall, this lunch was well...

I've coming here for years... I really enjoy the Fajitas Cinco de Mayo which I split with my girl and have food left over. Staff is very good and friendly and a great place to stop by for a beer or margarita:))) The lunch buffet is good and well worth the money.

Overall, it was a typical visit. The cost is less than 20 dollars for 2 to eat the buffet there during the lunch hours. The food was acceptable and decent and the prices were pretty good.

Nice restaurant! The buffet has a nice selection and great price. Servers are really pleasant. Prices reasonable. As with all buffets, I want to sample everything, but fill up quickly. The only thing I didn't like is if I can't finish what's on my plate, I can't take it with me. If I had to mention a favorite item, it... More
