Taste This, Tucson: Cinco de Mayo takeout deals and specials

Taste This Tucson Episode 14: Cinco de Mayo

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) - You might still be self-quarantined at home, but that doesn’t mean you have to skip Cinco de Mayo this year!

Taste This Tucson found a few restaurants offering specials and meal deals so you can get your tacos y tequila fix on this popular southern Arizona holiday.

There’s no other restaurant quite known for their authenticity like El Charro Cafe. They’re offering a two taco entree, two Carona Beer special and you can choose from shredded beef, shredded chicken or carnitas tacos. El Charro is also making a classic and prickly pear margarita that you can take home.

Speaking of margaritas, Reforma is known to have the largest selection of tequila in Arizona — or so the front page of their website boasts! This local restaurant is crafting Mexican Candy Shots just for Cinco de Mayo and they’re only $4, but if you prefer to stick to holiday tradition, their house margaritas will be discounted to $6. Reforma is also making a dinner for two, which will include a salad to share, two entrees and a dessert for $30. Of course you can always grab some tacos. Reforma offers a fried cauliflower taco, which can be made vegan!

If you’re looking for a meal deal for you and the whole family, Sonoran Brunch Company has just what you need! They’ll be offering six birria tacos, a cheese quesadilla, beans, rice, chips and salsa for $19.99. This Mexican/ American fusion restaurant is also discounting their grinders and dessert frybread to just $5. If you haven’t eaten here yet, you definitely won’t be disappointed on Cinco de Mayo.

Looking for a drink? The Parish is remixing an old classic with their flavor-infused tequila. You can choose between the Strawbanero — a refreshing combo with a spicy kick, or the Mango Mint — a cool spin on a sweet favorite. Each container of flavor-infused tequila takes days to produce, so once this tequila is gone, it’s gone! The Parish is packing these margaritas in to-go mason jars big enough for two, so you’ll not only be getting double, but you can save some for later!
