Cinco de Mayo celebrations

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - For many folks here in the Valley, it has become a tradition to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in a big way.

We found two great spots holding elaborate Cinco de Mayo events: Aunt Chilada's and Milagro Grill.

At Aunt Chilada's, the party starts early and continues throughout the night. One of the highlights? Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers will be taking the stage Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Aunt Chilada's is also offering a Day of the Dead face-painting contest with great prizes. Guests can enjoy a bocce ball tournament, a piñata swing for charity, and of course, great food and drinks.

One of the Cinco de Mayo specialties will be "Fratangas," skewered marinated flank steak prepared with a chili cinnamon rub and paired with a roasted chili salsa and tortillas.

Aunt Chilada's Cinco de Mayo
Tuesday, May 5 4-11 p.m.
7330 N. Dreamy Draw Drive, Phoenix

If you're looking for low-key ambience for your Cinco de Mayo, check out Milagro Grill on 44th Street and Indian School. The restaurant is known for its  peanut butter & pork tacos. 
Owned by the Macayo's children, the restaurant features some secret recipes that have been handed down by Nana for over 68 years.

Milagro means "miracle" in Spanish, and general managers Reed Johnson and Jaret Johnson collaborated to create a new, fresh take on Mexican food. They spent more than a year testing and tasting recipes at their parents' Camelback Mountain home. The result is a award-winning Mexican-American fusion.
