El Camino Cantina is honouring Cinco de Mayo, the annual Mexican celebration falling
on Thursday, 5 May, with DJs, face painting, tequila-infused festivities and limited-edition menu items.
From Sunday, 1 May to Saturday, 7 May, El Camino Cantina locations across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast will tap into the annual festivities. There will be DJs at El Camino Cantina in The Rocks in Sydney, Fitzroy in Melbourne, and Bowen Hills in Brisbane on Thursday, 5 May from 7pm and

They are served as Cadillac Margaritas, with a supercharged, smooth, rich float of Grand Marnier on top.
A sizzling Taco and Wings Festival is available all week at each location, featuring the following limited-edition menu:
