Cinco de Mayo (Spanish for 5th of May) is an annual celebration, which commemorates the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over the French Empire, on May 5th, 1862. Nowadays, the celebration is a lot more significant in the United States than it is in Mexico. In the U.S.—as well as in Canada—the date has become associated with celebrating Mexican culture.

Since 1984, the Tex-Mex restaurant’s goal has always been to keep the fiesta alive by offering everything from authentic Mexican food, to Mexican-style cocktails, an assortment of tequila, cervezas, and more! Carlos & Pepe’s is built on the concept of being festive, colourful, and delicious. They offer authentic and affordable Mexican cuisine that is rich in flavour and texture. And of course, we can’t forget about their drinks! The restaurant takes their bar as seriously as their kitchen by offering the largest selection of tequila in the province, as well as a variety of margaritas, cocktails, and over 20 types of beer on tap.
