Where To Eat & Party On Cinco De Mayo – Houston

Here in Houston, Cinco de Mayo means all-you-can-eat fajitas, the best margaritas in town and of course, queso. For my non-Houstonians: no, queso is not JUST melted cheese. There’s an art to it. You better believe us Houstonian’s take our queso, margaritas and fajitas very seriously.

For that reason, I rounded up the best places to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Go ahead and indulge – it’s only one day right?
