Cinco de Mayo is possibly the most confusing dining experience I have ever had. There are much better restaurants in the downtown Dover area but I was craving Mexican. First impression was that it was very crowded in the lobby area so we decided to...wait for our table outside. They are doing a decent job with their COVID procedures and the service was "okay" but their food tasted like Mexican food you could make at home. The cheese dip we ordered was watery and although tasty, it could be compared to Tostitos cheese dip that you find at the grocery store. The same applies to the rest of the food we ordered, nothing is homemade (unfortunately), but the prices reflect that. The one thing I enjoyed was their SangriaRita, although it was a very weak drink, it had a delicious berry taste.More

Boy this delivery order was a complete failure on multiple levels. The restaurant failed to include the tortillas with each meal. Secondly, the food was tasty but too heavy on salt. Each meal had too much oil, which made the ingredients very greasy. While the...order was delivered on time, this restaurant doesn’t check its food quality before serving it to the customer. This is not good business if you plan on staying in business.More

I spent $12.00 on a salad that barely had any romaine lettuce, avocodo or black beans. Very disappointed, tried to help a local business!

Nicely decorated Mexican restaurant in Epping. Arrive on Saturday for lunch. Unfortunately the Hostess didn’t seem to be enjoying her job. Did not smile once while we were there. Restaurant was not busy we were seated at a table with a draft, and minimum lighting....Ask to change tables and they seem happy to accommodate. Ordered Coconut Margarita, and Sangria. Lot’s of ice and weak drinks. Orders came out quick however one order was wrong. My husband had to sent it back and wait while they made another meal. Had to ask for more chips and salsa. Waitress was busy with other tables. I had the street tacos which were extremely salty. My husband had the Chimichanga special and they looked more like Taquito’s. Ordered a Dosequis and they were out. Funny they just opened for the day. Since there was a mixup with one of our meals you would think they would have compensated us some how. After all they are new to the area and need to put their best foot forward.More

Wife and I wanted a quiet good meal after my return from a business trip. The Waite staff was very attentive, made great suggestions. The food was well prepared and very taste.

We were driving through Dover and thought we would have a TexMex lunch. The location is central and easy to find. The interior is older and traditional, a little dull even, but for some very fun designed chairs. Crescencio took excellent care of us as...a very good server. The food quality is the surprise here. Its really excellent. We had the street tacos and the Chile Verde burrito. The beans and rice also very good. The chips and salsa were not greasy and we had two lots on the house. The burrito was one of the best I have ever had and not stodgy and doughy. Great value for moneyMore

Small town, delicious food at Cinco De Mayo restaurant. Our hotel recommended and it did not disappoint. Dinner Nachos were large enough to have left overs and the Street Tacos were as good as it gets. The Shrimp Appetizer with vegetables over rice could have...been a dinner by itself.More

Had fajitas and lunch burrito. Thought we were eating Mexican food in San Antonio Texas. The flavor of the burrito was enhanced by perfect spicing. The fajitas were sizzling hot with a generous portion.

Dinner companions had good dinners they said. I ordered 2 chicken tacos and the taste was "different" which means not very tasty. I couldn't finish the second one. They needed salsa or sour cream or something to make them tasty. Wished I had asked for...some.More
