Have you ever wondered about the history of Cinco de Mayo?
Cinco de Mayo is celebrated on May 5th every year, primarily in Puebla, Mexico, and the United States to commemorate the Mexican army's victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
Although the victory did not end the Franco-Mexican War, it became a symbol of Mexican resistance and national pride.
Today, Cinco de Mayo is a time for people to celebrate Mexican culture and heritage with parades, music, dancing, and traditional foods such as tacos and guacamole.
Yes, tacos! Because who doesn’t love tacos?
I want to share my favorite spot for Mexican food—and I invite you to share your favorite spots too! I love Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo and pretty much every other day of the year.
Chelino's Mexican Restaurant
We love Chelino's on Fourth Street in Santa Rosa. It's a go-to spot for team meals when we have a taco craving. Chelino's menu is expansive and goes far beyond tacos. The breakfast menu is pretty special, too!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
