Although you may be staying at home this Cinco de Mayo, there are still plenty of deals and discounts to take advantage of.

To celebrate, restaurants are offering drink deals and food specials for both dine-in and carryout. The deals below include national chains, but you can check with your local restaurants to see what Cinco de Mayo takeout deals they may be offering.
