“The best Mexican in the area”
Review of Cinco De Mayo

Cinco De Mayo
Ranked #2 of 14 Restaurants in Bloomingdale
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 June 2017

I'm not sure how anyone could rate this even just "good," much less "horrible," and I'm one of the most picky diners I know...

I eat here pretty regularly. The prices are moderate, the food is delicious, fresh, and plentiful. The margaritas are strong!

Best part, imo, not only do you get the usual chips and salsa, you always get free cheese quesadillas as an appetizer and free fried banana pasty dessert things and a free shot of tequila at the end of your meal. Every single time. Makes the prices even more worth it.

I always clean my plate even though it's way too much food, lol.

We have dined here multiple times and tried various dishes. The food is bland and needs more sauce. Margarita pitcher was expensive too.

Cinco de Mayo is a little hole in the wall. You'd never guess from the outside but the meal you get is outstanding. We had enchiladas mole poblano and chalupas. Both were amazing. The restaurant gave us a complimentary quesadilla and dessert. Both were delicious. We spent $37 with tip. It was a great deal. Who knew you could get Mexican this good in NJ.

First off place is nothing to look at inside and out. Margaritas are week and expensive . The food is mediocre. When we get our bill they over charged us by 50.Dollars. We will not be returning.

It's one of those tiny places you pass and think to yourself, I should stop in one day.... well we did and it was fantastic! Service was great, folks were friendly, but most importantly the food was incredible and the prices were very reasonable. This is our new favorite place. It's local to us, they make a great margarita, and every time we go we try something different and have never been disappointed. It's an awkward shaped little place but DO NOT let it's look deceive you. Try it! You will not be dissapointed
