Cinco de Mayo 2021: Where to get the best free food, giveaways and discounts

(NEW YORK) — The holiday that remembers Mexico’s victory at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, has become synonymous with delicious food and drinks to celebrate Mexican culture and cuisine.

These Cinco de Mayo restaurants and food brands are offering day-only promotions all around the country. Check out some of the popular discounts and giveaways below:

Cholula: Free Burrito

The beloved hot sauce brand that’s crafted and bottled in Mexico launched burrito insurance for DoorDash customers who have experienced a #BurritoDown moment — when an over-stuffed tortilla tears or falls apart at the seams.

When ordering through the app or online, thousands of local and national participating restaurants in Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles and New York City will accept the code BURRITODOWN for $20 off an order that includes a burrito, without delivery fees. Plus, select orders will come with a mini bottle of Cholula to spice up the Cinco de Mayo meal.

Each participating location made the list of the Top 10 cities with the most Mexican restaurants and the most authentic Mexican restaurants, according to data collected from Datafiniti by Cholula.

Additionally, Cholula is helping out home cooks who want to celebrate in their own kitchen and shared a simple burrito folding tutorial, plus a recipe for the ultimate chicken burrito.
