What to Know
- Miguel's Jr. has bean and cheese burritos for $1.99 for Cinco de Mayo
- You can also get a bean, rice and cheese burrito for that price
- Look for meal deals and kits from Chicas Tacos and QDOBA
Maybe you have a pitcher of margaritas in the refrigerator, or your favorite flavor of Jarritos, or something that's going to keep you cool on what is sure to be a very sunny Cinco de Mayo in Southern California.
Now? You need the food part, to complete that holiday vibe.
Many restaurants throughout the region are open for takeout and/or delivery, meaning you can have your guacamole, your carnitas, your fajitas, and your horchata, too.
Mmm, horchata really would hit the spot on a day when temperatures will dance into the mid-90s.
A number of spots around town have taco kits and take-home margarita specials, but there are a few money-savers, including the Miguel's Jr. burrito, which will be $1.99, all day long.
Inside the rolled-up tortilla?
You can go with bean & cheese, or opt for the bean, cheese, and rice. Whichever option you lean toward, you'll only shell out a couple of bucks. (Nope, "shell" wasn't a taco pun, though a crispy taco shell is lovely now and then, in addition to those sought-after soft tortillas.)
If you're looking for a good amount of food for a quartet of Cinco celebrators, consider the Cinco de Mayo Taco Fiesta Box from Chicas Tacos. It's $45, it'll feed three to four people, and it includes eight build-your-own tacos.
Filling, delicious, and ready to be garnished with a line-up of included toppings, including queso fresco.
Something nice? You can go "Impossible" with that order, if you choose.
And QDOBA has a couple of caliente deals in the works, including a Burrito Meal Deal for just under ten bucks (there's a sweet treat involved, in addition to the hearty main) and a fixings-filled Family Meal Deal that starts at $34.95.
