Cinco de Mayo, or the fifth of May, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army’s May 5, 1862 victory over France during the Franco-Mexican War. While not as widely celebrated in Mexico as it is here in the US, at Tijuana Flats we go all out, and we stay open extra late…until midnight on Cinco de Mayo! The day, which falls on a Friday this year, is full of delicious deals like these that drive guests to our Flats fiesta all weekend long so they can Cinco for days.

  • New Limited Edition Hot Sauce Dropping on Cinco de Mayo
  • Special $5 Pricing On Select Popular Menu Items
  • Two for $5 Beers

And for those Flatheads who prefer to spice up their Cinco at home, Tijuana Flats offers discounts and specials on catering, takeout, and delivery orders. Special Cinco catering deals include a free dessert bash and half-priced margaritas.

In addition on May 5th only, locations will offer a fun Cinco After Dark event complete with meal deals, double rewards points, contests, and activities to enable guests to enjoy good food while having a fiesta like no other. While Tijuana Flats is always about keeping it fresh by making crave worthy Tex-Mex food, they also value building community at each of their locations.

While Cinco de Mayo weekend is fun and crazy busy with guests coming in large numbers to enjoy the festivities and food deals, all locations also receive bouncebacks to help drive guests back in for additional visits during the month of May. To kick the repeat business off as only Flats can, Tijuana Flats offers a special Megajuana Hangover Helper burrito on May 6, the day after all of the Cinco de Mayo celebrating. It’s sure to punch any hangover in the face, making it very popular!

Every year, our franchisees and their teams work hard to create a Cinco celebration that not only brings in big sales but also delivers great-tasting food, money-saving deals, and lots of fun. Guests look forward to celebrating Cinco de Mayo with Flats every year. This holiday is just one more way Tijuana Flats’ lets guests know how much their business is appreciated and just one more way they help franchisees build a successful business.

With bold flavors and colorful experiences piled high with big-hearted, over-the-top service, Tijuana Flats boasts a menu consisting of fresh, made-to-order tacos, burritos, and other Tex-Mex appetizers, entrées, and desserts. The Tex-Mex-For-All brand has been named to Newsweek’s 2023 list of America’s Favorite Restaurant Chains, Franchise Times Top 400 in 2022, Newsweek’s 2021 list of America’s Best Loyalty Programs, and received the National Restaurant Association’s 2018 Restaurant Neighbor Award.
