An alright Mexican Restaurant!

I've dined at Cinco De Mayo Mexican Restaurant, several times as a huge lover of Mexican cuisine. The Mexican cuisine here is alright, meaning it is nothing to write home about! The portions are small, and not deep with their rice & beans. The restaurant is too dark, the booths hardly have any back... read more

ALWAYS PLEASES WITH FOOD AND SERVICE, The interior could use an "up-grade"... but who cares as long as the food and service is... More

BEST tamales I have ever had in Nashville! Sometimes, they are pork or chicken. Also try their stuffed Pablano Peppers! Drinks are great! and service is always friendly. Oscar is our favorite waiter- - but all wait staff are AWESOME!

I love this place! It's a hole-in-the-wall restaurant in a shady area of Nashville on Murfreesboro pk, but it's worth it for the margaritas! I frequent this place often.

We've been to the Cinco de Mayo in Brentwood on many occasions and had excellent experiences, so when we discovered a location 5 minutes from our house we were thrilled. We went for the first time and ended up being there 1.5 hours to have a basic meal. That was the first problem as it should not take that long.... More

We went to this restaurant and the food was really good! We enjoyed the fajita for two and chips and cheese dip. The cheese dip was a little on the spicy side. On the other hand, the drunk woman kept talking really, really loud and making us not hear each other and the waitress was just a talking on and... More

My girlfriend and I tried this place out when we first moved to Hermitage and I was a bit skeptical at first. The parking lot was not quite packed, but pretty busy, so that looked promising. Walking in, it's a pretty typical (and busy) setup, that you see in most Mexican places. What is lacks in atmosphere, it made up... More

This is a great place to go for quick Mexican. We go often. The fajita nachos are great. The enchiladas are pretty good, too. The salsa is the freshest tasting around. The service is usually pretty good. The exterior is a bit sketchy looking because I think it used to be a hotel or something, but the food is good.... More

Having enjoyed the carnitas, I found the salsa and chips were very good, all in all the wait staff was attentive and polite. The orders were correct and the price reasonable!
