Dave Story, chef of Mojo’s Tacos, said the restaurant’s first year has been a rewarding experience, thanks to its loyal customer base.

“We’re grateful to everyone who’s supported us and are excited for this opportunity to show our appreciation to our customers and friends,” Story said. “It’s a fun time of year, and we look forward to celebrating many more Mojo’s anniversaries in conjunction with Cinco de Mayo.”

Mojo’s Taco Truck, which can be found at events around town or booked for private parties, will be parked in the courtyard and serving a limited menu. Adults can sip on $5 house margaritas and enjoy specials on Corralejo Tequila drinks and buckets of beer while Mockingbird Theater, a state-of-the-art music venue located at The Factory, will provide live music plus a cash bar with beverages and tamales while supplies last. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the outdoor offerings.

Indoors, Mojo’s full menu will be available where taco lovers can feast on all their favorites, like the restaurant’s signature Korean cauliflower, fried avocado and hot chicken tacos, or “The Puffy” — a Texas-inspired taco with pork adovada, queso, guacamole, cilantro and onion inside a flour tortilla that puffs when it’s fried.

The 145th running of the Kentucky Derby will be shown on televisions in Mojo’s bar area and on the big screen at Mockingbird Theater on Saturday with a 5:50 p.m CST post time.
