“Great Mexican Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

This is probably the best Mexican restaurant we have found since leaving the Southwest 30 years ago! The burritos are huge, and not diluted with rice or other fillers. The menu is creative (e.g. shrimp and scallop burrito) and comprehensive. Service was prompt, friendly and caring, even with almost all of the tables occupied. This restaurant appears to be family-run, and is definitely family-friendly.

“Best burrito I ever ate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

The food is really, really good. Portion sizes are good. The only drawback was that service was a bit slow (they seemed understaffed). Like other reviewers said, don't let the location or limited parking convince you not to stop!

“Bienvenido a Cinco de Mayo!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Whenever I am in the mood for great Mexican food I love to to come to 5 de mayo. Their Mexican cuisine is a step above all the rest! I absolutely love their flautas con pollo appetizer. On a recent trip with my boyfriend we both ordered burritos, one shrimp and scallop and one fajita burrito and both we very tasty! The portions are very generous as well; I don't think I have ever eaten a bigger burrito! I must admit the service was just okay. There was only 1 waitress on and her service was slow. We ate all the chips and salsa before she ever got us our drinks. Despite the service the food is absolutely the best!
