El Chico Cafe announced which lucky guest will eat free for a year after winning the grand prize playing El Chico Cafe's "Hecho en Mexico" Cinco de Mayo scratch-and-win sweepstakes. Additional fun prizes up for grabs between now and May 5 include free appetizers, desserts, dinner, and an Apple iPad.

Ruth Walker, the lucky guest who gets to eat free for a year, was thrilled at her surprise win. "I am very excited to be a grand prize winner," she says. "My first thought was that it was not real, but when the general manger assured me that it was indeed real, I was shocked and at a loss for words! My husband and I are long time guests of El Chico, and we look forward to seeing everyone every week for one year."

In addition to the opportunity to win exciting prizes, guests are encouraged to upload photos of themselves wearing festive mustaches that clip onto bottles of the featured Mexican Beers, Dos Equis Ambar, Dos Equis Lager, and Tecate to El Chico's Facebook page.

Celebratory and limited-time-only margaritas round out the "Hecho en Mexico" promotion. These premium margaritas include: 

  • The 1862 'Rita – a delicious blend of 1800 Reposado Tequila, Midori Melon Liqueur, Cointreau Orange Liqueur and Hiram Walker Pomegranate Schnapps, topped with a "drunken" 1800 Reposado gummy worm!
  • The Cha Cha 'Rita: Smooth Sauza Blue 100% Agave Tequila mixed with Cointreau Orange Liqueur and a cherry limeade rim
