This year, Cinco de Mayo starts early. Or at least some national restaurants' Cinco de Mayo food and drink specials do, with deals available days before the May 5 holiday officially arrives. Check out this week's Cinco de Mayo-themed promotions below, including promotions like free burritos, all-you-can-eat tacos, and $3 margaritas.

Bahama Breeze: Margaritas are $5 apiece from May 2 to 5. Check out Bahama Breeze locations around the country here.

Carl's Jr.: Though not a Cinco de Mayo promotion per se, use the linked coupon and you'll get a free green burrito when you purchase one at regular price, now through May 31.
