What is right around the corner?

Only one of my favorite holidays out there: Cinco de Mayo!!!!

Can you say TEQUILA?

Okay but seriously, the key to having a good Cinco de Mayo is knowing where to go in Ocean County. You can't trust just anyone to have good nachos and margaritas.

So, we got your back.

Spicy Cantina

500 Ocean Terrace, Seaside Heights
(732) 793-4777

Word on the street is that this spot has AMAZING margaritas. There are multiple reviews on Yelp that specifically mention their margaritas plus a few birdies may have told me as well.

Cinco de Mayo Mexican Grille

1822 Hooper Ave, Toms River
(732) 255-6200
CincoDeMayoMexicanGrill.com

This spot is perfect if you are looking to bring your Cinco de Mayo party back to your house! You can order to go -- online by the way -- bring it all home and make margaritas exactly how you want them!

Margaritas Mexican Restaurant

270 NJ 37, Toms River
(732) 505-1400
Margs.com

Well for one, the word margaritas is in the title of the restaurant so that is a good sign. But may I also point out that there is a countdown to the arrival of Cinco de Mayo on their website which must mean they have something special in store. All I do know is that there will be $5.00 Hornitos Shots, $5.00 Breakfast Burritos, and $5.00 Temples of Bacon.

Azteca Mexican Restaurant

2114 Route 9, Toms river
(732) 608-0460
AztecaRestaurantBakery.com

Their menu looks to die for, you can order online and have it delivered if you don't feel like leaving the comfort of your home, but they also have an extensive cocktail list with various types of margaritas if you feel like throwing on a sombrero and coming on in.

Dona Julia Mexican Restaurant

1308 Richmond Avenue, Point Pleasant Beach
(732) 892-0021
JuliaMexicanRestaurant.com

Their slogan should say it all: Authentic Mexican Kitchen Crafted With Love. I am always in for anything crafted with love!

El Familiar

1246 Route 166, Toms River
(732) 240-6613
ElFamiliar.com

Based on their photo gallery, their authentic Latin cuisine options are off the charts. However, this is probably a more appropriate place for a nice dinner with friends as opposed to throwing a party.

Liz will be posting a list of the top Cinco de Mayo locations to hit up in Monmouth County soon!
