Cinco de Mayo 2022: Food Discounts and Specials in the Chicago Area

Get deals on local food and drinks

Looking to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in the Chicago area?

A number of businesses are offering deals and discounts to commemorate the annual holiday rooted in Mexican culture and pride.

Although the holiday celebrates Mexico's victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862, the holiday has grown in the United States tremendously.

Here are some businesses running deals for the holiday: 


Chipotle is offering free delivery on digital orders of $10 or more with promo code "DELIVER" through Friday.

Old Town Pour House

With three locations, Old Town Pour House is spreading Cinco de Mayo cheer throughout Illinois. The restaurant is holding an event with a food and drink package, Mexican bingo and music for those who purchase a ticket, which can be found here.

Additional promotions running include $4 off tacos and discounted prices on certain drinks.
