Love the cantina atmosphere and the friendly staff. Have been going here for years, through several changes in name and management. The food has plenty of flavor, prices are reasonable, and service is consistently good. I have only two small quibbles: the recipe for certain things (like guacamole) seems to change from day to day; meat, especially chicken, tends to be overcooked.

Excellent mexican cuisine and personal service

Cinco gets better every time I visit ! Everytime I walk in something new is always going on. The owners are always updating this old antique building, offering a dish that is not even on the menu. The one really cute female manager gave me a lesson on wine and tequila! These are the most hospitable people. I tried their ""civeche"" (marinated fish) and am hooked. Attention restaurant managers in this area, go take a lesson from the best! I can't wait till ""cinco de mayo""

I don't know where to begin!!!!

We found a Mexican restaurant in LC that we really liked and the good was great but the service was really poor - I felt like I was putting them out despite tipping 30%+ We had days where we went and they never gave us a menu!

Then we found Cinco. Again, hard to find and a bit of an odd location but the food had us hooked after the first visit. The staff is great and they have guac to die for and the pricing is very reasonable. You'll go home full, fat and happy with leftover to boot!

BEST Mexican Restaurant, Hands Down!!

Phenominal Margaritas!! The food is excellent, best quality for a Mexican restaurant I've ever seen. Wonderful staff, Reasonbly priced, more than enough to fill you up. Great, fun atmosphere. I could eat at Cinco's 8days a week!

I live out of town and I always make a point to stop at Cinco when I am visiting. The staff/owners are the best. Everyone is very friendly!! The food is great. Very authentic and priced well. I definitely recommend Cinco de Mayo!!!

home away from home

the food here is delicious! always fresh and hot and generous portions. The staff is what makes this place a repeated stop for me. I can go in alone or with a big group and th service will always be exceptional. They use real avocados (some restaurants have gone to frozen to save money) and you can see the spices in the salsa. I cannot let a week go by without stopping here and I live 20 minutes away! I love their guacamole...
