Great lunch spot

I'm almost hesitant to write this review, since I am local and don't want Cilantro to get any more crowded! Great local restaurant featuring locally-sourced ingredients and a friendly staff - always a pleasure to eat here!

I had heard that there was a new Mexican place in town, so went to try it as had seen some reviews. Unfortunately I have had Mexican food in Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona and know what is good. The Burritos were not up to what I have had, and I realize that this is back east and in Vermont.... More

Great place! Some of the places in Manchester seem to be sit down and dine. If was nice to just get our food and eat at our leisure. The food was amazing. I got the small burrito, but it was so packed I couldn't finish it. The beef tasted really good and fresh. They have some amazing chips. If you... More

We stopped here based on a recommendation from staff at Northshire Books. The food was excellent! Tasted fresh and made by very friendly staff. Chips were great also - both corn and four.

Went there twice in the 24 hours we were in Manchester. SOOOO good! Super friendly people. Great vibe and mission. A fast-casual restaurant with amazingly delicious food. Try the cinnamon and sugar chips!

Cilantro is a local hangout, with healthy burritos, tacos, and salads. Most of the ingredients are fresh from local farms. Good food and reasonably priced!

Tasty food, nice people and I like to support the community. My only complaint is the small portions. Specifically the the small burrito is pretty much the same size as the large burrito and the hill of beans has such a small amount of breans. It's called "HILL of beans"!!! I hope they read this review and make adjustments because... More

After being disappointed at a lack of friendliness in a few other local establishments, we were thrilled to be greeted by a hearty smile and hello from the two young gents running the show at Cilantro today. Very clear from the marketing in the place that they care about local ingredients and volunteerism, which makes you want to like them... More

The food was awesome! You watch them make exactly what you order. This is perfect for picky eaters. The staff was extremely nice, the menu was varied-and the chips & guacamole are too die for!!
