Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner, and that means good deals can be had on great food near Buckhead. We’re talking cheap tacos, burritos and enchiladas, as well as adult beverages for those looking to have an extra-fun time.
Cinco De Mayo, also called the Anniversary of the Battle of Puebla is held on — you guessed it — May 5. This year, it falls on a Sunday and happens to coincide with the first day of Ramadan. The holiday is meant to commemorate the Mexican Army’s defeat over Napoleon III and French troops in 1862. The English, French and Spanish invaded Mexico when the country decided to temporarily suspend repaying its debts, according to Encyclopaedia Britannica. While the English and Spanish eventually withdrew troops, the French, backed by affluent property-owners, stayed in the country and tried to establish a monarchy system under Maximilian of Austria.
