Mama Lu’s in Traverse City Celebrates Cinco De Mayo With Their Customers

Mama Lu’s is celebrating Cinco De Mayo with their customers and all sorts of Mexican dishes.

“Cinco De Mayo is huge here, we consider it one of our busiest days of the year. We’ve been cooking food since nine o’clock this morning and we already have lots of catering already rolling out the door,” said Austin Burt, General Manager at mama Lu’s.

Customers were lined up at the door this morning for quesadillas, tortilla chips and homemade sauces.

Cinco De Mayo celebrates Mexico’s victory over the French back in 1862, and though the holiday has become more popular in the U.S. than in Mexico, it has become a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage.

The holiday is celebrated in Mexico with their official dish for the holiday, the Mole Poblano, a fruit, chili and chocolate sauce served over chicken.
