courtesy of Milagro Grill Award-winning tacos.
There will be more than 40 food and drink specials available from Friday through Sunday, so there's something for everyone to celebrate at Milagro Grill, grand champions of the Third Annual Arizona Taco Festival. Friday's offers include a $6 habanero raspberry margarita and $8 PB&J puerco. Weekend deals include $2 chicken or Costilla (short rib) tacos; $3 Mexican draft beers, margaritas, and mimosas; and 20% off all bottles of wine.
Salsa Festival at el Pedregal
Nothing says party like a free festival full of food. On Cinco de Mayo, el Pedregal at The Boulders Resort will be hosting its 6th Annual Salsa Festival from 1 to 4 p.m. in the outdoor amphitheatre. There will be plenty of salsa samples to go around from restaurants including Spotted Donkey Cantina, Brugos Pizza Company, and more, and the outdoor grill will be fired up to make more substantial fare like tacos al carbon and tostadas de carnitas. Tequila tastings will provided by Herradura Tequila, and wine tastings will be offered by AZ Wines. There will also be Mexican desserts and margaritas.
Sandbar Mexican Grill
The party will last all weekend at Sandbar Mexican Grill's three locations, featuring live entertainment by DJs and local bands, the Mayweather-Guerrero boxing match playing in HDTV, and drink specials. The restaurant will also be rolling out its street taco carts, so you don't have to go far from the sand-lined indoor-outdoor patios to get a bite to eat. And at the Chandler location, the celebration will be extra-special thanks to Chandler's Third Annual Street Festival.
Bungalow Bar & Grill
All this week through Sunday, May 5, Bungalow Bar & Grill in Scottsdale is offering specials on its new menu items. Three street tacos -- choice of chicken, steak, or pork -- are $2.50 to $3 each. Nachos layered with pork, cheese, tomatoes, salsa, and jalapenos are $6, great to pair with a Dirty Tequila, cold cerveza, margarita, or fresh made sangria, all available for $5. Perhaps the best party snack of all are taquitos, served with zesty salsa for $5.
