Cinco de Mayo 2018

At the Flats, we’re known for being the “un-chained” chain. Meaning we serve great Tex-Mex food, excellent guest service is key but we also like to make you feel like you’re hanging out at your best friend’s house when you come to visit us for a meal. Celebrating Cinco de Mayo is no different. Read on to find out what your favorite Flats location has planned to make your Tex-Mex dreams come true on May 5!

Oh yeah, and you can score $2 tacos and $2 Mexican beers at all Tijuana Flats locations Fri. May 4 thru Sun. May 6. Why limit the festivities to only one day?


Cinco De Mayo Pinata

Holly Springs, NC

The Hollypeños at Tijuana Flats in Holly Springs know how to party! North Carolina native musician Andy Coats performs live from 5-9 PM. He may not have been the next American Idol, but we would have voted for him. Coats focuses on genres where rock is rooted: blues and roots (no pun intended).

Visitors can also take a swing at a few piñatas during the day! We’ll have maraca and taco shaped piñatas filled with Tijuana Flats swag. We’ve also heard through the grapevine that you’ll want to see the custom-made Cinco de Mayo team uniform shirts. Visit the Holly Springs location to find out what we mean!
