Atlanta Cinco de Mayo Celebrations

So where are you going to get your fiesta on this year? I'll be skipping out on the fun this year, unless you count breastfeeding and changing diapers as a celebration, so be sure to drink a margarita for me!


El Taco

El Taco will celebrate all weekend from open to close with $4 pineapple-infused tequila shots, $12 buckets of Dos Equis, and $12 El Jimador margaritas and $7 Dos Equis Lager Drafts in 22 oz. souvenir cups.


If you're celebrating at home, pick up one of their Cinco-To-Go package that feeds 8-10 revelers. All you have to do is heat and assemble.

“The Frida” – $105 (plus tax and gratuity)
• Pork carnitas OR smoked chicken with flour tortillas, lettuce, tomato, Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, El Taco red sauce, and jalapenos
• Mexico City grilled corn
• Refried black beans
• Queso Royale
• Guacamole
• House salsa and chips
• El Taco’s sour mix (1/2 gallon)

“The Diego” – $60 (plus tax and gratuity)
• Pork carnitas OR smoked chicken with flour tortillas, lettuce, tomato, Monterey Jack cheese, sour cream, El Taco red sauce, and jalapenos
• Refried black beans
• House salsa and chips
• El Taco’s sour mix (1/2 gallon)

Hurry, orders must be placed by calling 404.873.4656 by 10 pm on Tuesday, April 30th. Your order will be ready for pick up on Saturday, May 4 between 10 am and noon.

Ri Ra

When you think Cinco de Mayo, Irish pub probably doesn't come to mind, but the folks at Ri Ra are always looking for an excuse to party. This fiesta especial will begin at 9 p.m. and will feature chef Kelly Sollinger’s Mexi-Irish creations such as McNachos, chips O’Salsa, corned beef & cabbage burritos, fish tacos, shepherd’s pie enchiladas and more. Top-shelf margaritas and pitchers will flow until 12 a.m. while a live DJ spins throughout the evening. Mexican beer, Dos Equis, is set to sponsor the event.
