I have lived in La Grande for many years and I have been eating at Cinco De Mayo since it opened a few years ago. I find that not only is the service so much more friendly than at the other Mexican places in town, but the food itself is far less greasy and they do not use MSG like all the other places. In addition to these wonderful qualities Cinco De Mayo always gives you value for your dollar. Most of their meals are under $12 and there is usually enough for two meals. \r
The food is consistently good and the staff is always willing to please. As someone who has eaten practically everything on their menu I suggest the Carne Asada and the Enchilada Rancheras, oh and their Mole is amazing! If you want authentic Mexican without MSG and added fat try Cinco De Mayo in La Grande Oregon. And tell Rauul and Maria hi.
Pros: Food is awesome, no MSG, friendly owners and staff, great value, not as much fat as other places
Cons: Outside of the building looks a bit run down but not surprizing since this place is in La Grande.
