Celebrate Cinco De Mayo Around Chestnut Square

May 4, 2017

From tacos to tequila, Mexican fare will be everywhere on Cinco de Mayo. While eateries of all stripes may try to get in on the fun, what better place to celebrate Mexican culture and cuisine than at an authentic Mexican hot spot?

Luckily, there are many of them in our neck of the woods! Whether you’re looking for a night out on the town with friends or a new date adventure, Cinco de Mayo in West Chester is sure to be a good time. (And as a bonus, it’s on a Friday this year!)

Here are a few neighborhood locales that will be turning up the heat on May 5:

La Rancherita — Located five blocks from your Chestnut Square apartment, La Rancherita is the real deal when it comes to Mexican. The brightly colored, intricately decorated spot will transport you across the border, and the food will keep you coming back for more! La Rancherita serves up the staples with few bells and whistles, but with an authenticity that will have you celebrating them far beyond Cinco de Mayo.

Los Sabores de Mexico — Grab some Modelo and head to this local spot to get your Cinco de Mayo started right. The BYOB venue, situated just two blocks from your Chestnut Square apartment, is known not just for its genuine dishes but also for the generosity of its portions — come hungry!

Más Mexicali Cantina — Más Mexicali Cantina, located two blocks from your Chestnut Square apartment, is giving you not one, but five, opportunities to celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year. The restaurant and bar will host special events from May 1-5, including painting parties, taco specials, a fundraiser for local nonprofits and more. The fun is capped off by the big May 5 party, which will feature several DJs, a live-radio broadcast by 92.5 XTU, giveaways and $4 Corona cans.
