Top 5 Mexican Restaurants in SoCal
According to History.com, Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—is a holiday commemorating the date of the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in areas with large Mexican-American populations.
In honor of this holiday, I am sharing my TOP 5 favorite Mexican restaurants in the South Bay.
