Boston Magazine: Where to Celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Boston

Last Updated on May 13, 2016 by Aaron Hinchliffe

The fiesta begins with margarita donuts, and ends with tequila snow cones.

Any excuse to kick back with a margarita and some speciality tacos is a good one, and Cinco de Mayo is a Mexican food lover’s dream. Here are a dozen places to find the coldest cervezas, most inspired menus, and the friendliest fiestas. ¡Salud!


Don’t fill up on complimentary chips and salsa, because chef Jason Heard’s two-for-$5 taco menu has selections like grilled shrimp with chili glaze, refritos, and tomato salsa; and crispy sweet plantains with guacamole and West Indian hot sauce. There are also pulled pork nachos with Grandma Clarice’s Carolina mustard, and a gazpacho with cornbread croutons. The springtime soup is a collaboration with Elmer Sanchez, East Coast Grille’s first-ever cook, who made the move to Coppersmith with Heard.
