We like Mexican food and had seen 5 de Mayo while driving on 14th, so we decided to try it. We waited 42 minutes to get our drinks and order taken. They were busy, so we waited.

We tried a new place at random and this was it. Food was amazing. We got fajita quesadillas it wasnt overloaded with onions and peppers as filler. The portion was perfect and so tasty. Our drinks were tasty also. Bathrooms were clean tables were clean. It was an amazing random experience. We will be returning!

Chorizo is excellent!!! Great salsa as well!!! Not the best margaritas...read full review
