Where to score free food and cheap drinks for Cinco de Mayo

May 4, 2021

Everyone knows after Star Wars Day comes the Battle of Puebla, right?!

For those not well-versed in these beloved holidays, of course we’re talking about May the Fourth Be With You and Cinco de Mayo.

After Tuesday’s inter-galactic festivities, today it’s time to enjoy the more earthly delights of our neighbors to the south.

While Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Mexican army’s victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862, many Americans partake by binging on tacos and guacamole and throwing back a few margaritas. Salt and on the rocks, if you must know!

To make sure your Cinco fiesta is on point, here are some of the best deals on free food and discounted drinks from a few of your favorite restaurants, chains and apps. ¡Salud!


Chipotle is going above and beyond Cinco de Mayo and is giving away free burritos all week to any lucky winners willing to play the company’s trivia game, ChipotleIQ.com. The company is also giving out a $500 gift card for the last five fans to comment “last” on their Cinco de Mayo Instagram post at 5:55 p.m. EST.


Members of the chain’s 7Rewarsd club can enjoy a small Slurpee for $1, which comes with four free mini tacos.

Moe's Southwest Grill

Place any order on Cinco de Mayo and you’ll get 5x the amount of reward points. Anyone who signs up for the membership by downloading their app before ordering will also get the offer.


The beverage delivery app will take $5 off your first order by using the code “CINCO2021.” As if you needed a better reason to have a drink arrive at your door!

On the Border

The chain is offering their Grande House 'Rita for $5 all day. In addition, the first 100 people at each location will get a special shot glass to mark the holiday. The early bird catches the (tequila) worm!

Hurricane Grill & Wings

It’s all about options at Hurricane Grill & Wings as they’re offering a variety of specials, including $3 tequila shots, $3 Coronas, and $5 margaritas. Better reschedule that Thursday morning meeting now!


Not to be outdone, Chili’s is offering $5 deals on draft imports and various margaritas, including the return of their iconic Patron ‘Rita. Hello, lover!
