Cinco de Mayo is not a holiday we take lightly around Nashville. Mexican offerings or not, restaurants in town bring their A game when it comes to their celebrations. Needless to say it is a tough choice as when it comes to picking the best place in town to get your taco on. Depending on what you are looking for, here are our Lyft Picks this Cinco de Mayo.
All Around Good Time - Bartaco
If you are looking for a 12 South, tropical vacation vibe, complete with one of the best patios in Nashville, look no further than Bartaco. Bartaco was featured in the Top 50 Destinations for Cinco de Mayo by USA Today and honored by BuzzFeed in their 19 of the Best Tacos In America. This Cinco de Mayo they will have a live band and their normal happy hour specials. HOT TIP - Happy Hour is from 5-6:30pm and if you give them a call about 30 minutes before you arrive they will put your name on the waitlist!
Best Margarita - Drinko de Mayo at Rosepepper Cantina
Voted Nashville’s Best Margarita 11 years in a row by Nashville Scene, Rosepepper Cantina is an East Nashville classic. They pride themselves on using the freshest ingredients in their margaritas as well as a selection of over 80 tequilas. HOT TIP - Happy Hour from 4-7pm and definitely order the guac.
Mexican for Today - Cinco de Yonce at Acme
We can always count on Acme for finding any reason to celebrate, even one as devastating as Beyonce postponing her concert. So if you are looking for a nice margarita to wash down all that Lemonade you’ve been listening to, Acme is your spot. HOT TIP - Practice your dance moves, #beyhive don't mess around.
Best Tacos - Mas Tacos Por Favor
There is no denying that Mas Tacos game is strong. Get your hipster taco eats on at this Essential Nashville spot. Starting at lunch time there will be live music and food specials all day. Don’t be afraid to try some of the non-taco options as well; the elote, chicken tortilla soup, and plantains are the best around. HOT TIP - Cash only!
Biggest Celebration - Cinco de Mayo at Saint Anejo
M Street is hosting an indoor street festival at The Rosewall, featuring beer and shot specials as well as street tacos. Saint Anejo will also be featuring drink specials and their full menu. Make sure you take advantage of their vast tequila selection and premier specialty cocktails! HOT TIP - Try the Ginger-Rosemary Margarita, it is just too good.
