I travel a lot for business and it is hard to find good Mexican food, which happens to be my favorite. I initially went here because it was convenient to the hotel I was staying in. I kept going back because the food is awesome.

Very unassuming Mexican restaurant within the Days Inn restaurant but the speed of service and the quality of the food make it a top notch yet affordable experience. Inner decor is colorful bearing no resemblance to a the days Inn it is a part of. Lunch time crowd is always lively and every dish I've tried has been really good.... More

This place is FANTASTIC! There are other Mexican restaurants closer to where I live, but we make the drive for Cinco! The service is always wonderful, the margaritas are excellent and I have never had a bad meal. Carnitas, Carne Asada, Chile Colorado and the Fajita Quesadilla are always favorites of ours. They are always very sweet with my son... More

I stayed near this place so thought I would check it out and I'm glad I did . Best salsa I've had, lots of cilantro. The fajita quesadilla was fantastic as well. Great friendly service and priced right . Also a good selection of beers, I chose Modela.

If you like authentic Mexican, served by Mexicans, take your Spanish here. Everything is good from the salsa and chips to the quesadillas. They want to please you and they succeed every time we go. It is in the Days Inn of exit 81 off I 75.

Our group was evacuated from Hilton Head due to Hurricane Matthew, and we had spent a very long day in the car dealing with stopped traffic and numerous accidents and were tired and hungry. We found the review of Cinco Amigos on T.A. and found it very convenient to our hotel. We had a wonderful meal, and thoroughly enjoyed the... More

We like eating Mexican with our family here. Great service and great food. We have been here for dinner just the 2 of us. We have dined here with family and friends. The food is always good and hot. Have some dishes not so high in calories, but got to watch the chips and salsa. It is all good.

Well I love mexican food! I can say this place stands out above the rest. The beef and chicken has a unique taste and is well worth the money. You get large portions and is well prepared. The staff is friendly and prompt.

Good Mexican foods, easy to get in and out, always good service. The drinks (margaritas, sangria..) have not been as good as the food. Really good salsa and chips....good and spicy and the chips are the perfect thickness.

Thank d d
