Hours of operation: Restaurant: Mon-Sun 11a-11p; Cantina: Sun-Thu 11a-close; Late Night Events: Fri-Sat 11p-3a
Reason why place is best of: Three words: Hot…Drunk…Tourists! Yeah, Diablo’s Cantina is right in front of the Monte Carlo, so if you’re not down with Californians or dudes in Ed Hardy shirts, it might not be your joint. But if you want to celebrate Cinco while overlooking The Strip with a bunch of people that don’t care how drunk they get ‘cause they ain’t driving…Diablo’s is your joint. Food’s pretty good too.

Dos Caminos in the Palazzo Hotel & Casino
The Palazzo Hotel & Casino
Phone number: 702.577.9600
Hours of operation:11:30a-11:00p
Reason why place is best of:
Dos Caminos Mexican cuisine in the Palazzo offers tantalizing authentic Mexican dishes and signature drinks with a innovative and contemporary vibe. It has a vibrant bar scene that reminds as if (in music terms) The Black Eyed Peas meets Shakira. When you have great food with a great atmosphere that equals GOOD looking people. And I don’t know about you but I (Bojo, the Jamaican Prince) take pride in surrounding myself around beautiful women. And there is a plethora of beautiful women at Dos Caminos either dining, drinking or part of the staff. That alone should be enough reason alone to go.
If you can’t make it to the KLUC Cinco De Mayo fiesta check out Dos Caminos this Cinco De Mayo. I just might make that the after party spot.

Coyote’s Cafe & Cantina
4350 E Sunset Rd, #104, Henderson, NV 89014 (Sunset and Green Valley Parkway)
Hours of operation: 11am-10pm
Coyotes is a hidden gem in the heart of Green Valley that serves the best Mexican food! Right from the beginning when you receive their very addicting chips, salsa and bean dip you will fall in love! It’s a smaller, more intimate restaurant that is great for families to come together and enjoy a great meal. Their delicious authentic food comes in rather large portions and it won’t break your bank. The servers are all very nice and very attentive. You will go home very full, with leftovers, and you will be very satisfied! Happy Cinco De Mayo!
