Cinco de Mayo – or the fifth of May – remembers the Mexican Army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). In the United States, Cinco de Mayo is a day to celebrate Mexican culture and heritage with parties, music, festivals and parades. Juan Miguel’s has been honoring the Cinco de Mayo tradition for the past five years.
When I decided to re-open Juan Miguel’s, I followed my heart. As a Macomb native all my life, I have been privileged to watch the community flourish and grow. People from all over the state love to come to Hall Road because of all the shopping and restaurants. Macomb has a taste of everything for everyone. It is important for me to serve and give back to the community where I live and hold so dear to my heart.
Mexican food is a blend of so many wonderful spices and seasonings. I wanted to share this authentic, magical experience with everyone. At Juan Miguel’s, we use the freshest ingredients. We use a GMO-free sunflower oil to cook the food, and we offer organic eggs and ketchup. Macomb has grown into a neighborhood that embraces all cultures, all people and all food. As the owner of Juan Miguel’s, I feel a sense of joy and pride to be part of such an amazing community. Why would I want to be anywhere else?
The celebration of Cinco de Mayo is a wonderful way to enjoy authentic Mexican food with friends and family. Juan Miguel’s will have an all-you-can-eat taco bar, a DJ playing music to dance, drink specials and traditional Mexican recipes to tantalize your taste buds for this Cinco de Mayo! Please come visit us at 21342 Hall Rd., Clinton Township or go to http://www.juanmiguels.com/. We look forward to sharing this celebration with you!
