Got a big, hungry household to feed? Cinco de Mayo specials at this Tex-Mex cantina in Arlington’s Buckingham neighborhood include a 10-pack of crispy or soft tacos (chicken, beef, cheese or pork carnitas) for $20 with free chips and salsa, plus $7 Juarez margaritas to go. Tacos and enchiladas are also available in 20-packs. Or, try a fajita pack that serves six with your choice of grilled chicken, steak or mixed proteins, plus guacamole, pico de gallo, sour cream, Mexican rice, beans and flour tortillas. // 4235 N. Pershing Drive, Arlington
Call it the perfect adult happy meal: three tacos and a margarita in a pouch (classic, cucumber, passion fruit or blueberry) to go, for $14. The taco fillers at Mike Cordero’s trendy taqueria range from traditional (carne asada, chorizo, etc.) to creative (the “Colonel Sanders,” for example, contains spicy fried chicken, cole slaw and pickles). There are veggie variations too, including falafel, General Tso cauliflower, or Impossible meat crumble with barbecue aioli. //1501 Wilson Blvd., Arlington (Rosslyn)
Bartaco’s Cinco Party Kit (serves 4) features two taco fillings (enough for 16 tacos), cucumber salad, slaw, beans, salsa verde and chips. Choose the veggie kit (portobello and cauliflower tacos) or carne kit (chicken and pork belly tacos), with or without margaritas. Kits are $37 per person without booze; $64 per person with margs included. Orders must be placed by the end of the day on May 4. Kits come with reheating instructions. //2920 District Ave., Fairfax (Mosaic District)
