OK so we get there and its sort of busy, 3 guys running around like they just got hit with 2000 customers. We get seated and wait for quite some time for someone to take our order. The guy runs up and no joke, rips a piece of my napkin off to take our order. I just looked at him... More

We went there for dinner to celebrate upcoming wedding. We usually go to Rockford but was hitting other downtown spots. Very disappointted. Service was terrible, was ignored even though we had a group of 20 and had our own area. Charged us extra for baskets of chips and salsa. Food was not as tasty and poorly prepared. Will not return...

My husband and I had dinner here on Sunday evening while we were downtown... Mexican food sounded good, so we decided to try Cinco De Mayo. Great choice! The restaurant was not very busy, but nothing is busy on Sunday evenings, so that is no reflection on the restaurant. We were greeted very quickly, and shown to a booth. The... More

Cinco de Mayo offers nothing to get particularly excited about. The food is decent, but not especially outstanding. And, on the day we were there, the service brusque and inattentive--and the restaurant was not particularly busy. We felt like we were more than a bother than a welcome customer. Each of entrees were bland and unexciting. My "Hot and Spicy... More

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in Grand Rapids. The food is excellent and pretty close to the authentic taste that we get when we travel to Mexico. The service is excellent and our dinner was out within 10 minutes of ordering on a busy Saturday evening. I really like how they have the restaurant decorated. The location... More

Last week while attending the West Michigan Golf Show my friends and I were advised of this restaurant as a great place to have dinner. The people that recommended it were not wrong. The service, atmosphere and food were excellent. The prices were competitive as well. I will definitely return and recommend it to my friends.

I've been to this restaurant at least a dozen times and they serve consistently good food at a reasonable price. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the staff have always been friendly. It location in the downtown is easy to get to and there is lots of seating. I've never had to wait for a seat. The food can take... More

Cinco de Mayo has captured offering and serving quality Mexican food reasonably priced. If you enjoy quality magaritas you must order their ultimate. The ultimate costs approx. $15,00 for a 27oz., but it is a real ULTIMATE margarita. We frequent this rest. and recommend it to one and all. The location in downtown Rockford is ideal w/ the river just... More

We live on the same street as this restaurant and really wanted to like it. But after tonight, we've decided to give up! The beef is tough, presentation is pathetic and service is worse. Our rude waiter left our check and left to go sit down and visit with friends. We finally just left cash on the table, he saw... More
