Food was actually pretty good, but we were the only ones in the restaurant on a week night. Makes me worry about the quality and freshness of the food in places like that! Very cute decorations and friendly staff.

We are so happy we found this authentic mexican restaurant, which never disappoints. The beef burrittos are our favorite dish. The filling is made with tender chunks of beef, not ground, and the sauce is superb. The salsa is homemade and excellent. We have always found the staff to be accommodating and friendly. The menu is varied and every dish... More

This place is really good as far as Mexican traditional foods go. I have had many plates from Mexican restaurants in San Antonio and Austin - noting San Antonio has a vast offering of great simple and traditional Mexican dishes. At Cinco de Mayo I had the enchilada and burrito - one chicken and one beef. The chicken was a... More

My wife and I have been coming to Cinco De Mayo for 4 years and no longer go to any other Mexican restaurants in Bergen County. The food is amazing with a good sized menu and generous portions. The Alambre Platter is always my go to dish and my wife loves the enchilladas verdes. I highly recommend eating here.

When we arrived, we were 1 of only 2 couples there at 7 pm on a Friday night. Food was meh. Service was poor except for the water guy. I had a living social deal but it wasn't even worth the discounted price I paid. It is BYOB. They give complimentary cheese quesadilla & dessert (friend banana something). That was... More

Cinco De Mayo is located in a strip mall in Waldwick. It's decorated in a festive way, colorful and cheerful, and the staff is welcoming. Compared to other Mexican restaurants I've been to, I find the food here to be over heated and nothing to write home about. The food is always hot but heated to the point where it... More
