It doesn’t have to be Cinco de Mayo week to enjoy a heap of good tacos and a cold Mexican beer. There is no shortage of Mexican and Tex-Mex spots to feed your taco whims.
But because it is Cinco de Mayo week, finding a place to stuff your face with tortilla chips and guac takes on a sense of urgency, one that only happens in the country that holds the Mexican holiday most dear to its heart: the United States. (Not Mexico. The holiday is not a huge deal there, as it commemorates a rather obscure battle that took place in 1862.)
