Where To Order To Celebrate Cinco De Mayo At Home In Chicago

CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Just because you have to stay at home, doesn't mean you cannot celebrate Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo, or May 5, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. The day, which falls on Tuesday, May 5 in 2020, is also known as Battle of Puebla Day. While it is a relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations.

And it just so happens that Cinco de Mayo falls on Tuesday - which in popular culture, Tuesdays are referred to as Taco Tuesday - so it is a double celebration!

To celebrate Cinco de Mayo at home, due to the Governor's stay-at-home order amid the COVID-19 pandemic, some restaurants are offering take-out and delivery specials. Check out the list below:
