Still Great After All These Years

We stopped in to 5 De Mayo after a long week at work and really needed a break. It was a windy and rainy evening, so having someone make a nice meal for us was a treat this evening.

They forgot my side order as well. This was sub par at best. No one... More

We tried this spot for the first time recently. It's the middle of February so we had no trouble getting a seat for two, but I imagine there must be a wait in-season. Both my husband and myself found the food to be delicious. It was authentic, freshly prepared and well seasoned. We started off with chips and salsa -... More

Last year on the way out of town we saw a sign that said Mexican and figured we'd stop in and give it a try. We were blown away by her discovery. We tried the... More

Wanted to try some Mexican in Cape May and found this place. Prices average in the mid-teens but you get a lot of food. The meats in our meals were seasoned and flavorful and topped with fresh avocado and diced tomatoes and lettuce. Definitely would come back to eat here!

We enjoyed our second trip to this restaurant. We came here last summer while in Cape May and enjoyed our visit. It was very busy this time around. We're happy to see this restaurant is doing well. We hope to be back again next summer. Great food; service is good but it wouldn't hurt to have more people working when... More
