Every Cinco de Mayo, no matter our nationality, we all love to get in on the jovial atmosphere of the holiday and celebrate Mexico’s victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. And, we love to do it in a delicious way – with tequila, tacos, fajitas and other Mexican eats.

This Cinco de Mayo, head to these authentic Mexican restaurants located just a short walk or drive away from your Wray apartment and get your fill of these scrumptious favorites. Or, simply order them for takeout or delivery and enjoy them from the comfort of your kitchen!

El Sol Restaurante & Tequileria, located at 1227 11th St NW, Washington, DC which is 10 minutes from your Wray apartment, is a chef-driven Mexican eatery that brings full-flavored traditional dishes and some 60 tequilas to a simple setting.

Opened in 2014, El Sol Restaurante & Tequileria serves authentic Mexican cuisine inspired by the heritage of chef Alfredo Solis and his sister, Jessica. Born and raised in Mexico City, the duo moved to DC where they cut their teeth working in some of the city’s finest restaurants, advancing from dishwasher to executive chef positions.

The Well Dressed Burrito, located at 1220 19th St NW, Washington, DC which is six minutes from your Wray apartment, is an informal eatery with colorful decor serving classic Mexican fare including burritos, tacos and nachos.

The Well Dressed Burrito is known for being one of the first Southwestern carry-outs in the DuPont Circle area, opening in 1986. Local customers know it as “the burrito place in the alley” because it is a little spot secretly located in the alley right down the street from Dupont Circle.
