Delicious!!!

Great food, locally sourced. Relatively inexpensive. Walking distance to shops, right on main street. Great place for a quick bite to eat!

Nice cute small authentic Mexican food. Everything fresh and nice sized. Easy to miss, and not as fancy as Gringo Jacks across the street (which is also good), but worth a visit. No greasy stereotypical Mexican food here. Enjoy!

A very casual walk up type of place. No table service. Imaginative combinations and the food was good. It is not true Mexican but more of an Americanized Vermont version. Which is fine but don't expect authentic. A limited menu but good to grab lunch.

We're luck to have Cilantro as a part of the Southern Vermont community! Their food is consistently good and the guys behind the counter are always friendly. I usually do take out but the times I have eaten there the atmosphere is fun. Great spot!

Excellent tacos! Love their homemade salas and chips! Friendly staff and great food. Their salads are very good too and top it off with their home brew ice tea. Eat in or take out.

Our go to easy, breezy dinner choice on busy nights. The food is delicious. My favorite is the Salad with chicken or the Hill of Beans. You can always count of the quality.

Great food! Went for lunch and the people were great and the food was amazing. It was a lot better than chipotle. Very unique ingredients and very fresh!

The window tells the whole story: Burritos, Tacos, Salad, Beer and Wine. That's pretty much the full menu. You make your choice of locally sourced meats (or vegetarian) and add-ins and they assemble as you move down the line. Very, very good food. The only thing preventing me from giving this place 5 stars is the limited menu. Dinner for... More

Wonderful burritos. So happy to find good Mexican food in VT. Love the home-made cheese and salsas. Service is fast and friendly. We eat here at least twice a week.
