5 de Mayo Mexican Grill Restaurant Review

: Simplicity reigns at 5 de Mayo Mexican Grill. You won’t find elaborate upscale décor or an open show kitchen, any executive chef or over-the-top menu---just a pleasantly unpretentious establishment that features an extensive menu filled with authentic Mexican fare. Start with an unending basket of fresh corn tortilla chips, served with tasty salsas (one mild, the other hot). Difficulty comes with trying to choose from the lengthy menu listing various forms of chicken, beef, pork and seafood in enchiladas, fajitas, quesadillas, burritos, tacos, or inventive dishes. Combination platters are an opportunity to sample a variety of offerings and therefore among the best options. On the heat scale, dishes are mild so hotheads will rely on spicy sauces and salsas served on the side to add just the right kick. While portions are big, the bill won’t be---prices are very reasonable. Service is quick and efficient making it an ideal choice for dining on the run, yet friendly and attentive so that you feel as if you’re a member of the family.
