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.

The springtime soup is a collaboration with Elmer Sanchez, East Coast Grille’s first-ever cook, who made the move to Coppersmith with Heard.
