Celebrate Cinco de Mayo With Takeout From These Local Mexican Eateries

May 4, 2020

We may not be able to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at our favorite local Mexican eateries this year, but that certainly doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate! Thankfully, lots of local Mexican restaurants are currently hard at work cooking up authentic dishes available for takeout.

If you want to celebrate this fun holiday in your Octagon apartment with some delicious enchiladas, quesadillas, tacos and burritos, give these local Mexican eateries a call. Some of them are also offering delivery, so you never have to get off your Octagon couch!

MazMezcal, located at 316 East 86th St, New York which is 14 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a longtime neighborhood spot known for its classic Mexican dishes and festive feeling.

More than six decades of outstanding Mexican food have made Maz Mezcal the gourmet choice in New York. The eatery takes meticulous care to assure freshness and authenticity to every dish prepared in their kitchen.

El Mero Mero, located at 35-57 38th St, Astoria which is 13 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a colorful, contemporary eatery serving familiar Mexican dishes such as tacos and enchiladas, as well as rotating featured dishes which are one-of-a-kind to the restaurant.

The family-owned eatery, which has been a staple of Astoria for 20 years, has a focus on ancestral recipes passed down through the years as it offers delicious southern Mexican cuisine from the state of Puebla. The name Mero Mero means “The One,” and you’ll soon find it your one-and-only for Mexican cuisine!
