We have passed this restaurant several times when visiting the area, but for some reason, never stopped. We finally stopped on our last day of vacation. We would have gone back again if it wasn't for that. The food was excellent and nice portions, great service and good Happy Hour. We will definitely be back next April!

The restaurant has the normal 'Mexican' atmosphere and plenty of seating, including the bar area. I had the beef chimichanga with beans and rice. The meal overall had good flavor but was nothing out of the ordinary that cannot be found at most Mexican places. It does stay quite busy and is loud inside due to the openness of the establishment and the seating.

Visited this place for lunch and dinner during our trip to world golf village. This is the best Mexican place we have ate ever, as I have been to more than 50-60 Mexican restaurants. Great portions, very tasty, great service, great prices. Don’t miss it if u ever visit the St. Augustine / Jacksonville area. Very lively atmosphere and great prompt service. No complaints.

It was a very hot day in St Augustine today. Living at World Golf Village I decided to take advantage of having lunch nearby. I have been to Cinco de Mayo many times. It is a superb Mexican restaurant. Service is always good, food is always excellent, and drinks are always well made. I had the appetizer Tex Mex Nachos. All I can say is wow. Do not miss this restaurant when in the World Golf Village area.

April 24 - Wow, we normally eat our mexican food at La Napolera or El Potro but we heard from a friend that this Cinco de Mayo was waaaaayyyy better. Our friend was from Texas and had been exposed to good Mexican there and said it was better and she'd tried all 3 restaurants too. So, we went there expecting the usual quality mexican food but it was better. The lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, shells, salsa, was all fresh and tasty. We were a party of 4, which were two adults and two kids ages 7 and 11. We all got different plates and everyone loved it. The chips and salsa were very good. Even the water tasted good which we usually get and at other restaurants it tastes terrible but at Cinco de Mayo even the water tasted good. We will definitely be back. I'm putting up a few pictures of the food when it first came out. The lettuce pile actually has 3 tacos underneath it. We got the fried ice cream for dessert and it was also very good, got 4 spoons and it went fast. We won't be going back to those other mex restaurants. They even had a nice little outdoor area to eat at and I don't think smoking is allowed because no one was.
