A popular Douglasville destination for Mexican cuisine reopened in its new home at 7436 Douglas Boulevard. The owners of Cinco De Mayo Mexican Grill said they were forced to close their doors after the restaurant’s previous location was sold to another business owner.
“My father-in-law, Cato Figueroa, had leased the building for 10 years, but when it was sold, we had to find a new location,” said Julian Velazquez, owner. “We found this location, and it was perfect for what we were looking for.”
Cinco De Mayo Mexican Grill’s new location is in the building that formerly housed Highlanders Tavern & Grille. Cinco De Mayo closed down at the end of 2017, but was able to reopen in its new location on February 6.
Velazquez said the new location is fully remodeled and upgraded. He noted that the new decor is aimed at appealing to a younger crowd.
“We redid the floors and just about everything else,” said Velazquez. “The only thing we kept was the old bar. We also added lots of TV’s so that our customers can watch the game from any seat in the restaurant.”
