How best to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this Sunday?
May we suggest a restaurant crawl?
With Cinco de Mayo falling on a Sunday fun day it only seems right.
All you need is your phone with the Uber app, a healthy appetite and a credit card.
La Michoacana #5 Mexican Market’s breakfast
Kick off Cinco de Mayo with an authentic breakfast — Chilaquiles, hot cakes and huevos rancheros is the start to Cinco de Mayo that the day deserves. Do a little shopping after and get ready for round two.

Taqueria Mixteca’s Guacamole
Taqueria Mixteca is inexpensive and tasty. The best course here is to go with a large guacamole and chips. If avocados aren’t your thing (we can’t imagine!) the authentic tacos are absolutely delicious. If you are at the Trotwood location grab a margarita. If you are on E. Third St. head across the street to DK Effect for a margarita sampler and some video games.

Elsa’s Queso Loco … and a Bad Juan
Two words — Bad Juan. An aptly named margarita that becomes exponentially badder with each one ordered. But if you are going to make it through all five courses you just get one. Order up some chips and queso loco — a hot, white cheese sauce with diced peppers and ground chorizo sausage.

El Toro’s Molcajete
El Toro continues to rank at the top of the list with voters in the Best of Dayton polls. With a full menu to choose from and a number of locations that are nearly as plentiful as the dishes that are offered, there’s never an El Toro too far away. Consider trying the El Toro Molcajete featuring tender slices of steak, chicken, chorizo and shrimp grilled with green onions and Nopales (cactus). Drizzled with green sauce and covered with melted cheese, if you are looking to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in a big way, this is a solid option.

El Meson’s dessert
With one of the best patios in Dayton this is the spot that will be throwing one of the best parties in honor of Cinco de Mayo, this is one of the best spots for Cinco de Mayo celebrations at the start, middle or finish. With a menu of dishes they are known for as well as a robust menu of featured specials, there’s always something both familiar and new to enjoy. The fifth and final course is a great party and dessert — go for the passion fruit creme brulee or the guava lemon bundt cake.
