Ithaca pride! Biggest Cinco de Mayo spike in Mexican food orders is right here

Something new to be proud of! Ithaca really, really likes to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, judging by our online orders of carry-out Mexican food, if nothing else.

“No U.S. city sees a bigger spike in Mexican food orders on Cinco de Mayo than Ithaca,” says Grubhub, one of the nationwide food ordering companies that serves the Ithaca area.

Grubhub offers online ordering from several eateries that sell tacos, including a couple we wouldn’t have thought of, like Jack’s Collegetown Grill and Sammy’s Pizzeria. Of course there are also a few local favorites delivered by Ithaca To Go, such as the all-vegan Star Truck or Old Mexico, and places like Gorgers Taco Shack where you’ve got to go to the food.

No word on Ithaca’s per-capita tequila consumption, but we’re betting we’ve got something to be proud of there, too.
