Dallas Mattito’s

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican heritage, food, music and dance. No restaurant in Dallas honors the occasion better than Mattito’s. Beginning at 5:00pm, the Mexican holiday is commemorated with mariachis, nine-piece salsa band Latin Image, tequila tastings compliments of Sauza Hornitos, mechanical bull rides, games and prizes, and of course, drink specials and cuisine from the award-winning Tex-Mex menu.

Headlining this year’s event in Dallas is the Bob Armstrong queso-eating contest, named for the Texas politician who created the cheesy concoction over a quarter century ago. Not on the menu and a top-secret recipe, Bob Armstrong queso is ironically the restaurant’s most-requested item. The contest winner will receive bragging rights, a trophy, free Bob Armstrong for a year and the chance to defend their title next Cinco
