Mexican Independence Day.
Traditionally, Mexican Independence Day is celebrated every year on September 16. This year, the day of celebration lands on a Monday – and we know how hard it can be to break away for some salsa and laughs at the beginning of the week. Still, there’s no way we’d let Mexican Independence Day pass without a celebration – which is why we invite you to celebrate this wonderful Mexican holiday with us on Sunday, September 15 with the best Mexican food in Henderson, and some amazing drink specials.
A Little History of Mexican Independence Day
If you’re thinking “wait, I thought Cinco de Mayo was Mexican Independence Day”, you wouldn’t be alone. There’s often some confusion surrounding the two holidays, at least north of the border. Mexican Independence Day is celebrated in honor of Mexico’s independence from Spain that resulted from the Mexican War of Independence that began in 1810. While there is a singular day that’s dedicated to the holiday, Mexican Independence Day is often celebrated throughout the entire months of September and October.
Celebrations in Mexico include streets and buildings that are decked out in festive decorations of green, white, and red. There’s also no shortage of celebrations, public gatherings, and parades. If you travel south of the border to visit Mexico during the celebrations, you’re also likely to find fireworks, young children running around with sparklers and huge smiles, and palm stalks or willow that have been braided and then burned in celebration.
Of course, there’s one other important aspect of celebrating independence day in Mexico – the amazing food. If you’re lucky enough to be in Mexico for the celebration, you’ll have the pleasure of enjoying a practically endless offering of great street foods. You might also find your way into one of the local eateries to enjoy a dish that celebrates the true spirit of Mexico, many of which play on the colors of the Mexican flag.
Think along the lines of green poblano peppers, stuffed with a creamy white cheese and dressed with a rich red chile sauce. Or maybe enchiladas that are served with verde, rojo, and a creamy white sauce. An ordinary dish in a true Mexican eatery is an experience to savor – but add in a little culinary flair in honor of the big day, and it becomes something out of this world.

We invite you to join us for $8 Avion margaritas $5 Avion shots all day long. If you’re not familiar with Avion Tequila, then let this be the perfect occasion for you to begin exploring one of the world’s best tequilas.
Avion Tequila is made with blue agave grown at high elevations in town of Jesus Maria, Mexico. The agave then goes through a process that begins with being harvested by hand, slow roasted, small batch distilled, slow filtered, and then aged in barrels that once held American whisky. The result is a smooth tequila that’s both rich and crisp, with some warm, bright citrus notes. It’s the perfect compliment for the ingredients that go into a fresh margarita, or simply sipping straight as you salute the Mexican holiday.
