Cinco de Mayo is significant beyond just being an excuse to binge-eat Mexican cuisine. A holiday to commemorate the 19th-century victory of the Mexican Army against the French Empire, Cinco de Mayo holds a bit more historical importance than say, National Burrito Day. Regardless, we wouldn’t pass up an opportunity to end up in a food coma from tequila and tacos. If you’re a student or always looking for ways to eat out on the cheap, check out the best Cinco de Mayo deals you can score on May 5th to get your Tex-Mex fix.
