Where to Order Cinco de Mayo Takeout
This year, bring the fiesta home. Try these carryout and delivery options.
Go nuts with a Big Papa Bamba Platter ($75), which includes your choice of protein (asada, al pastor, barbacoa, carnitas, chicharron, chorizo, lengua, tinga or spicy mushroom) and one salsa, plus 24 corn tortillas, onions, cilantro, pico de gallo and cotija cheese. If you’d rather plan ahead, the “Prepare Your Oven” meal kit ($42) includes one filling of your choice, 20 tortillas and pico de gallo, with reheating instructions. Throw in a margarita kit, too ($10), which makes five drinks. //2190 Pimmit Drive, Falls Church (Taco Bamba also has a satellite drop zone at 4000 Wilson Blvd. in Ballston)
A pre-order Cinco de Mayo Take & Bake party package includes enchiladas (half chicken, half cheese with red and green sauces) and a build-your-own taco kit with braised beef short ribs, cumin poached chicken, cheese, pico de gallo, lettuce, sauces, guac, salsa, chips, rice, beans and escabeche onions. Packages are $75 (serves 4-5) or $155 (serves 6-7). Add a quart of the restaurant’s fan-favorite margaritas for $30. // 2401 Columbia Pike and 2503A N. Harrison St., Arlington
Who can say no to a free margarita? They’re part of the deal if you order from the Clarendon eatery’s carryout menu on May 5. Tacos, quesadillas, burritos and bowls can be ordered a la carte (fillers include pork carnitas, smoked brisket, grilled chicken, shrimp or mushrooms), or you can do a Fiesta for Two ($35.99) which includes one protein, three sides and one dessert, plus tortillas, telera bread and pico de gallo. // 2900 Wilson Blvd., Arlington (Clarendon)
