Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Though — contrary to common belief — today is not Mexico’s Independence Day, it’s still an excuse to celebrate.

And here at The Penny Hoarder, you know how we celebrate: with deals.

So here are 12 of the best Cinco de Mayo specials we could find… Vamos!  

1. Taco Bueno

Olé! These coupons will get you a free crispy beef taco and free bean burrito, plus 50% off an order of nachos or a quesadilla.

Note: Two of these coupons are valid today, and two are for May 6-9.

2. Bahama Breeze

Get your drink on with $5 handcrafted classic margaritas at the Bahama Breeze nearest you.

3. Jamba Juice

This coupon, valid through May 8, will get you a small chili mango smoothie for just $2.99… Spicy!

4. Moe’s Southwest Grill

Happy Cinco de Moe’s!

It’s offering $5 burritos all day at select locations — and if you’re one of the first 50 customers of the day, you might even get a free T-shirt!

5. Taco Time

With this straightforward (and crunchy) deal, you can get tacos for just 69 cents all day.

6. Tijuana Flats

Grab a Tijuana burrito, chips and a drink for $5.99, or add a draft beer for just $1. Ooh, and it’s also happy hour all day.

If you get a little too happy tonight, you can recover tomorrow with $2 tacos and, once again, happy hour all day. (Hair of the dog?)

7. Sonic Drive-In

This spot may not be Mexican — but who cares when you’re getting half-price boneless wings?!

8. On the Border

Drink specials abound here, with festive drinks starting at $3 each. To get the fiesta started, many locations will also have live music!

9. Chili’s

It’s Drinko de Mayo at Chili’s: $5 Presidente margaritas and $3 Dos Equis beer.

10. Macaroni Grill

No time to party? Get an express lunch in under seven minutes and for just $5 with this coupon.

11. Caribou Coffee

With its own version of Drink-o de Mayo, this coffee shop is offering free samples of its new Salted Caramel, Mint Chocolate and Raspberry Caribou Coolers from 3 to 5 p.m. today.

12. Taco Cabana

Though you can party it up with $1.50 margaritas and $3 small nacho and beer or margarita combos during happy hour today, we care way more about the FREE BREAKFAST TACO you can get tomorrow morning.

Your Turn: Where will you celebrate Cinco de Mayo this year?
