We stop in here a few times a year to enjoy some traditional Mexican food. They start you off with some delicious chips and salsa dips. I always get one of the combo platters to try some different treats.

Being Hispanic I was thrilled to find this place. It is so so good. Food is fresh, beans and rice perfectly cooked. People at our shore house are all converts to Cinco. They are fast and servers are very sweet. Lovely place.

What a treat. Excellent food for a very reasonable price. Handled special requests well. Don't bring a large group if you want to sit at the same table but it's intimate enough you can sit in various tables and converse well enough. Kids and adults...More
