Cinco de Mayo, or the 5thof May, is a celebration of the battle between Mexico and France in the battle of Puebla, over the Franco – Mexican War. It’s typically a day in America where people of all races take the time to go out and have a fiesta, grub on some tacos, or down a margarita in celebration of our neighbors to the South.
If you’re in Lubbock and you’re looking for a cool place to do any of the above, Campus Live has you covered!
If you’re looking for some great Lubbock tacos, try the following:
- Taqueria y Panederia Guadalajara
- Taqueria Autlan
If you’re looking for great Mexican food in general, try the following:

Want to drink a really good marg? Try these top places:
- Chimmy’s (duh)

If you’re not in the margarita drinking mood, of course we recommend have a nice refreshing Mexican beer, and what better drink than a Corona Premier, the official beer of Campus Live.
I hope you enjoyed these recommendations and that you find them super helpful when you’re looking for a way to spend your Cinco de Mayo. Please remember to be safe, always. Don’t drink and drive, and enjoy your fiestas. Until next time, Campus Live, Happy Cinco de Mayo!
