If there’s one thing that’s for certain, COVID can’t stop the fiesta spirit in the Triangle. While we were creating this list, we found that many of our favorite spots had already sold out of special Cinco de Mayo meal kits. Fear not, we still have an abundance of great options to choose from for takeout and delivery. Check out some awesome spots and specialty Cinco de Mayo dishes below!
1. Raleigh Times
Nacho and Taco lovers can rejoice over plentiful options from Raleigh Times. Enjoy Mix and Match Street tacos, or feed the whole family (or create a party for one, we won’t judge) with their Nacho Picchu, an eighteen inch platter of nachos. They’re also offering a $30 Fiesta Pack that feeds 2-3 people and consists of a Street Taco Mix-and-Match 6 Pack, a pint of guac and pico, house made and fried fresh tortilla chips, Spanish rice, black beans, pickled onions, salsa verde, sour cream, lime wedges. (Choose between Chicken Tinga, Grilled Shrimp, Al Pastor, or Barbacoa).
The Raleigh Times – 14 E Hargett St, Raleigh, NC 27601.
2. Bull City Burrito
In case you missed it, the folks behind Bull City Burger have launched Bull City Burrito, offering Tex Mex style burritos. You’ll find familiar fare like chicken tinga on the menu, alongside some unique burrito like the ‘Lipstick on a Pig’ that includes collards and bacon marmalade.

Each kit includes 12 tacos with your choice of two fillings: chicken tinga, grilled chicken, braised shortrib, carnitas, and Korean pork belly. All tacos will come with lettuce, pico, cheese, and sour cream.
