Though some think it's Mexico's independence day, Cinco de Mayo is actually the commemoration of Mexico's historic victory over the French in the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. (Mexicans celebrate their 1810 declaration of independence from Spain on September 16 of every year.)

This year, Cinco de Mayo falls on a Wednesday, and even though some festivities will be affected by the pandemic, there are plenty of parties to choose from and special deals at Miami bars and restaurants to check out.

Below, listed in alphabetical order, are the best places in Miami to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with food and drink specials.
