The 5 Menu Must-Haves

1 – Do It Yourself Taco Bar

What’s Cinco De Mayo without tacos? We love the South of the Border Menu, which includes a Chicken & Beef Taco Bar. Your guests will have a blast making their own creation with all the fixings: guacamole, shredded cheddar, lettuce, tomato chunks, olives, sour cream, salsa, and jalapenos to add some spice! 

2 – Salsa con Queso Mac N’ Cheese

Think outside the box, and wow your guests with an unexpected dish: Mac n’ Cheese! Our Salsa Con Queso Mac adds a zesty spin to this childhood favorite, with a to-die-for white cheese sauce. Take it to the next level by adding taco beef to your mac order! 

3 – Chips & Guac

Keep it simple with a Mexican classic: chips and guac! Our Mexican Platter is a party must-have, complete with nacho chips, salsa, sour cream, black bean dip, jalapenos and of course guacamole

4 – Irresistible Queso Dips 

Everyone loves a good ol’ fashioned dip to snack on throughout the day. Our cheesy Salsa Con Queso or Beefy Salsa Con Queso dips are especially fitting for your Cinco De Mayo fiesta! 

5 -Tex-Mex Vegetable Salad 

All your favorite Mexican flavors into one big healthy salad! This colorful and refreshing combo – featuring corn, beans, and peppers – is a great complement to your fiery meals and apps. 


If you don’t feel like crafting your own menu from scratch, our  South of the Border Menu is the perfect option for you! Along with the DIY Taco Bar (as mentioned above), this fan-favorite menu also includes:

  • Veggie or Meat Chili
  • Mexicali Vegetable Medley
