Every year many come together to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Many do so with incredible food, parties, and special events. The holiday celebrates the date of the Mexican army's 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War.

The Quad Cities has some great spots when it comes to trying and experiencing new foods. For many, they have a go-to spot every year.

Today I figured it would be a great time to look at some great restaurants you could check out for Cinco de Mayo
