We really enjoyed eating at Cinco.. The Mcginnes Ferry location closed last weekend. Juan and his staff always treated us wonderfully.

only average fare in an area where mexican and tex mex abound as far as choices go. The wait staff seemed harried and hurried. Not a place I would return to, if there is a choice.

It is hidden gem really in a less populated area close to work and great mushroom spinach quesadillas. Definitely return.

If you are looking for Mexican or Latin flavor, keep driving past this place. From the moment we walked in, it was apparent that they did not want our business. The hostess was not friendly at all, nor accommodating as she seemed bored and not wanting to be there. Once at our table, we both noticed that our silverware sets... More

Cinco was good...but not great. I went during my lunch hour and service was quick and efficient. The place is just your average Mexican spot with average food. I had the chicken quesadilla with chicken tortilla soup and a friend had fish tacos with queso dip. She wasn't too impressed with the queso as it was a tad bit thin... More

The food, drinks and service at the bar have always been superb.. Selena and David go above and beyond to ensure my husband and I are happy. Their margaritas are the best... Fresh squeezed lime juice (they cut the lime and squeeze the juice into each Margarita to Order!) yummy! Last time we tried the Chipotle shrimp app as recommended... More

Lots of food choices, everything has been good tasting. It is high end for Mexican, so our bills were the same. But now I especially like the new $5 lunch options on... More

We visited the Alpharetta location. I like coming here, even though the food is a bit on the expensive side for Mexican. It's a lively fun place to come for dinner. We were there the night before last, on a Friday night. There was live music. No added cost, no cover. We had a nice dinner, with out-of-town guests in... More

I love Cincos. Best Mexican Food. Fresh Salsa. They make fresh guacamole right there as you watch. Always friendly. Great customer service. Can't wait to return!
