Cinco Mexican spots for Cinco de Mayo (Plus a Couple of Fiestas, too!)

Hey ATL, we’ve got you covered for all things Cinco de Mayo ITP and OTP. Roll into summer in Atlanta with these top restaurants and events!

Baja Tacos from Chiringa

We’re obsessed with this hot new Alpharetta spot serving up elevated beach food! The jalapeños add an extra spicy kick to their guac. Drink a round of “Ringa Ritas” made with agave, then play a tipsy game of cornhole on their outdoor patio that’ll make you feel like you’re right on the coast.

Locations and Cinco celebrations in Cumming, Alpharetta, Woodstock, and Canton.

Margaritas from Nuevo Laredo
Nuevo Laredo
This dive on the Westside first opened its doors in ‘92 and has been a staple for fun and affordable Mexican ever since. Celebrate your Cinco with their gooey, cheesy Chile Relleno and endless chips and salsa. Choose from a dozen Mexican beers or try their Skinny Margarita for the health-conscious Cinco celebrater.
