10 Best Places to Eat and Drink on Cinco de Mayo in Metro Phoenix
We won't get into the questionable historical significance of the 5th of May in Mexican culture, because if we're being honest, we're just using it an excuse to have one too many margaritas on an otherwise completely average Monday. So if you will also be partaking in some Cinco de Drinko shenanigans, here are a few places where you can eat and drink (and maybe even get a discount) on Cinco de Mayo this year.

Barrio Queen Tequileria
As it so happens, Cinco de Mayo coincides with Margarita Monday at Barrio Queen in Scottsdale. Every Monday from open to close the restaurant offers half off all margaritas -- and that includes the Skinny Cholla version that features Jose Cuervo Traditional Silver, fresh squeezed lime juice, and agave nectar.
La Hacienda, located at the Scottsdale Fairmont Princess, will be hosting a Cinco de Mayo party with strolling mariachis, a street-style taco cart, a guacamole sampling station, churros, and piñatas. The restaurant's Tequila Goddess Abeer Besharieh will be offering tequila samples along with Mija, the resort's beer burro, who will pose for photos from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
Sandbar Desert Ridge
Get your toes in the sand up at Desert Ridge on Monday and you can get $3 Dos Equis, and $5 house margaritas from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sandbar will also have drink specials, live music, and DJs on Saturday and Sunday.
