We may not be able to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at our favorite Ronkonkoma area Mexican eateries this year, but that certainly doesn’t mean that we can’t celebrate! Thankfully, lots of local Mexican restaurants are currently hard at work cooking up authentic dishes available for takeout.

If you want to celebrate this fun holiday in your Alston apartment with some delicious enchiladas, quesadillas, tacos and burritos, give these local Mexican eateries a call. Some of them are also offering delivery, so you never have to get off your Alston couch!

On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina, located at 45 Middle Ave, Holtsville which is five minutes from your Alston apartment, is a casual restaurant chain featuring Tex-Mex standards such as fajitas, burritos and grilled meats.

This 40-year-old chain, which was started by three friends in Dallas, Texas, is known for their mesquite-grilled meat, fresh ingredients, hand-pressed tortillas and sauces made in small batches. Plus, they offer both takeout and delivery.

Viva La Vida Spanish And Mexican Restaurant, located at 1611 County Rd 85, Oakdale which is 14 minutes from your Alston apartment, is known for their innovative Spanish and Mexican plates served with margaritas and sangria.

Currently, this eatery, which also offers a vegetarian menu, a gluten-free menu and a children’s menu, is serving via takeout so you can be sure you’re dining safely when you pick up your meal from here. All of their fare at this family-owned local staple is made from scratch and on the premises.
