Independent Mexican restaurants and cantinas all over the country will be hosting parties, drink specials, and food deals for Cinco de Mayo on Tuesday—here are some roundups of the options in Washington, D.C., Miami, Denver,Houston, Las Vegas, and Boston, to name just a few cities. National chains are celebrating Cinco de Mayo with discounts and freebies as well. Here are five that jumped out to us as worthwhile:

Taco Bell: The day starts off with free breakfast—specifically, one free biscuit taco per customer—at Taco Bell from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.

Moe's Southwest Grill: All day on May 5, locations participating in "Cinco de Moe's" have a deal that includes a burrito, chips, and salsa for $5. Depending on the location, the first 50 to 200 customers get free T-shirts too.

TacoTime: Crisp Tacos are on the menu for just 69¢ apiece on Cinco de Mayo at this chain with nearly 400 locations in North America.

Tijuana Flats: This Tex-Mex chain with 100+ locations (mainly in the Southeast) wraps up five days of Cinco de Mayo deals with $5.49 combo covering two tacos, chips, and a drink, plus draft beer costs only $1, sangria is $2, and a glass of wine is $3.

Baja Fresh: If you're ordering for a party—or perhaps, lunch for the office—Baja Fresh has a special catering deal for Cinco de Mayo week. Any order of $100 or more comes with free guacamole and free churros. The offer is valid through May 11.
