Cinco De Mayo is finally here which means it’s time to kick back, grab a margarita and enjoy the spring heat. Some queso thrown in the mix wouldn’t hurt either. Whether it’s frozen, on the rocks, rimmed in salt or sugar, margaritas are on the menu tonight. Here are the best places in and around Plano to celebrate Cinco de Mayo tonight.

Mexican Sugar

It’s no secret that Mexican Sugar, sister restaurant of Whiskey Cake, is a Plano goldmine. The chocolate avocado cake, moist and dark with a hint of heat, is more than enough to keep locals addicted. This Cinco de Mayo, drop in for one of their amazing margaritas, maybe with a bowl of fresh, lime-infused ceviche, and—if you haven’t already—try the award-winning Hibiscus Margarita.

Better, their La Verdadera margarita is a Dallas A-list Best Margarita.
