“Our Mexican restaurant of choice in GR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2011

This was our restaurant of choice to celebrate our anniversary with our parents and family a few weeks ago. We "found" it during ArtPrize and have been bringing friends there ever since. Large menu, generous portions, reasonably priced (especially for a downtown restaurant), fun atmosphere, and very clean restrooms (as my father-in-law mentioned: he gives it a 10!). Parking on the street during "off" hours. Haven't even had a mediocre meal there after at least half a dozen visits, so we're pretty confident when recommending it. Enjoy this little gem!

“Authentic Mexican food in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2010

We tried this new Mexican restaurant and were quite impressed with how authentic it all tasted. We had very fast service and the food was delicious. They could use some music playing for background noise. Other than that the atmosphere was great and the location across from the art museum worked out awesome!

“Yummy, artsy Mexican food across the street from GRAM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2010

We had lunch at this restaurant after enjoying a morning at the Grand Rapids Art Museum. Cinco de Mayo is fairly new to the Grand Rapids scene and the interior is very arty and stylish, with large murals and colorful carved wooden seats and booths. It was quiet on Saturday afternoon of a holiday weekend but I would guess the place does a healthy business for lunch during the week and on weekend evenings. I chose the "Speedy Gonzales" from the lunch special menu--a taco, enchilada and either beans or rice for the value price of $6.95--and my companion had a shrimp dish. Everything was delicious!!! I highly recommend this place!
