The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.

It’s also a good reason to indulge in some Latin-inspired food and drinks.

Here are some places for a great margarita and guacamole in Reston:

bartaco , Reston Town Center — Reston Town Center’s newest restaurant evokes a trip to the Hamptons. Try the fresh-squeezed juices in your margarita and a wide variety of snack-sized tacos.

Uncle Julio’s, Reston Town Center — This town center standby is always a good place for house-made tortillas and frozen margaritas.

On the Border, Spectrum Center — Avoid the town center crowds and get made-to-order guacamole at the table.

Lake Anne Market — This mini-mart at Lake Anne Plaza has a kitchen that turns out quality pupusas, tacos, and other authentic Latin American specialities.

Jackson’s Mighty Fine Food and Lucky Lounge, Reston Town Center — It’s not technically a Mexican restaurant, but Jackson’s has some of the best margaritas in town.

    Taco Bell at Wiehle? not much difference then on the border.

    I’d prefer to spend my Cinco De Mayo celebration in South Reston. More authentic

    The taco’s at Lake Anne Market are awesome.


    I’ve been to BarTaco, and I’ve been to The Hamptons. In no way whatsoever, does Bartaco evoke a trip to the Hamptons.
