About Us

Cinco’s Cantina is locally owned and operated by brothers Crescencio & Miguel Alberto TellezIn 1999, Crescencio immigrated to Tallahassee, Florida from a small rancho in Northern Mexico on the outskirts of the beautiful city of Saltillo. In 2005, Miguel Alberto joined Crescencio in Tallahassee and the brothers soon discovered their love of the restaurant industry. It was also there that Crescencio met his wife Erin, a New Hampshire native, while she was studying at the Florida State University.

In 2007, Erin and Crescencio made plans to return to her home state to raise their growing family. At the last minute, Miguel joined them on their journey; a leap of faith eventually leading him to meet his wife, Asia.

After arriving in NH, the brothers worked for several years at Mexican restaurants in the area. The brothers finally made the decision to pursue their long-time dream of starting their own business and on December 13, 2014, Cinco de Mayo Bar & Grill (now known as Cinco’s Cantina) opened its doors in historic downtown Dover. Just over five years later, they expanded their business and opened Cinco’s Cantina in Epping. Their third location in Rochester, NH will open their doors in the summer of 2024.

When you visit our restaurants, you’ll often find Miguel and Crescencio socializing with and entertaining customers while assisting our hardworking staff. Erin and Asia together manage administrative and marketing relations for the two restaurants. Often times, you'll find the next generation of Tellez restauranteurs around our restaurants. The older children work in various roles while our younger children stop in to visit friends and family. Next time you’re in, grab a drink, say hello, and let us welcome you to our Cinco’s family!
