Dinner at Cinqo De Mayo Restaurant

My husband and I like to pick a weekday each week and go out on a date night. We find things are cheaper on the weekdays with fewer lines and you end up getting better service. So this week we decided to be a bit adventurous and head into downtown Jacksonville in the search for a special meal. We ended up in jacksonville landing known for its great views and average restaurants. The landing I hear used to be a great place to visit but now due to the economy is going through tough times. The sky was beautiful with thin clouds and we chose to walk on the 'blue' bridge to get a closer feel of the water. This led to a need to fulfill the hollow feeling my belly with some delicious foodies. After much menu scoping we settled for the mexican restaurant with water front dinning Cinqo De Mayo. The experience started off well with scrumptious (and free) chips and salsa. They have $1.99 draft beers which would have been a good choice but we settled for margaritas which although on the menu were $3.99 we were charged $5.50. No biggie.. we are pretty understanding about inflation ;) The food however was quite disappointing. Very bland and simple with no distinctive flavors which they seem to accommodate by low prices and unlimited nachos. 2 pulgares derriban cinqo de mayo :(
