It's certainly not a weekend for lightweights. Leave your fanny pack at the house and imbibe in many of the options around town as we collectively celebrate General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín's defeat of the French in 1862 in the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. Despite the fiesta, many of us are still on a budget. ¡No te preocupes! We've done the digging for you.

To celebrate Tres de Mayo, El Fenix has $3 large drafts of Dos Equis all day.

Peak and Elm, the new Mexican spot with some heavy Texan influence (like the tamale pie topped with Fritos), will have free margaritas all day Saturday and Sunday.

Herrera's Café will have $4 frozen margaritas and $3 beers all day Saturday.

Soleo Mexcian Kitchen, one of our favorite local Tex-Mex places, has $5 margaritas and free queso on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The iconic Mia's Tex Mex on Lemmon will have $5 enchiladas dinners and $5 margaritas on Saturday and Sunday.

Urban Taco will have "5 for $5" on a variety of margaritas including Urban rocks, lime frozen, tequila slammers, limonada corrupta and hibiscus. In true Mexico City style, it will also have $2 street tacos. You can have them all while listening to the soft lullabies of a mariachi band.

La Calle Doce in Oak Cliff will have $4 Jimador margaritas on both Saturday and Sunday, and $5 mojitos at both locations all month long. And on Sunday, the number 5 will be $5 all day (that'd be chicken enchiladas with sour cream, rice and beans).
