Celebrate Cinco de Mayo At These Berkshire Restaurants

This May 5, raise a margarita toast for Cinco de Mayo at one of these Mexican restaurants, both located in nearby Great Barrington, Massachusetts.A colorful Mexican serape with two straw hats and the title: Happy Cinco de Mayo.

The margaritas at Xicohtencatl Mexican Restaurant are outstanding, and representative of the quality of dishes you can expect to come from the kitchen. Enjoy your drink on the lovely porch or patio or try another cocktail from the restaurant’s tequila bar, which has more than 50 top-shelf tequilas and other cocktails.

Xicohtencatl’s Mexican-born Chef Angel, the youngest of 10 children, learned his skills at the side of his mother and honed them working with other inspired cooks here in the States. A specialty is his mole sauce—a family secret passed down from his mother—which you can enjoy in Especial Mole Poblana (with organic chicken) or with several other dishes. The menu here is extensive, with appetizers, tortilla dishes, chicken and meat entrees, and a nice selection of vegetarian plates.

Donaji Mexican Restaurant, also located in Great Barrington, is known for authentic street-style Mexican food. The restaurant is bright and the staff friendly. The highlight here is its tacos. Street tacos are smaller than what are often served in Mexican restaurants, and the ones here are packed with good ingredients. The “al Pastor” taco, for example, pairs delicious shavings of slow-roasted pork with pineapple and roasted onions. Fajitas are another great choice as are the enchiladas. On weekends, Donaji often serve tamales, a treat for sure.

You’ll find tasty margaritas here as well, along with other colorful cocktails and other beverages. Perfect for celebrating Cinco de Mayo!
