Celebrating Cinco de Mayo at Jessy's Taco Bar

Cinco de Mayo is Friday, and for many Americans, that means enjoying Mexican food. and probably a few margaritas.

It's a holiday that many already thought was appropriated by breweries, liquor companies and bars.

For Tortolero, Cinco de Mayo is a reminder of how many times Mexico has been invaded by other countries.

Cinco de Mayo commemorates the Mexican army's unlikely victory over the French forces of Napoleon III on May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla. "The president has made the Latino community a priority and we always will".

Overall, the meal delivery service found that the number of taco orders rose by 118 percent on the holiday, and have continued to rise in popularity by 48 percent annually.

"So tomorrow night at Bartaco [in Nashville], they allowed us to rent out the patio and we're going to have a Cinco de Mayo-slash-graduation party for my wife, who is getting her doctorate on Saturday", Smith revealed exclusively to Sounds Like Nashville.

Cinco de Mayo is Friday and Chef Alexis Samayoa of Espita Mezcalaria is in the studio with Eun Yang to make tostadas, the flawless Cinco de Mayo party food.

"This one day, Mexico won the battle", he said.
