Great place

Yum! Had the street tacos with chicken and it was really good! Corn chips were excellent and crunchy! Only thing I didn't like was that they didn't have guacamole. So I made my own. Using their sliced avocado and some salsa. Haha! Where there's a will, there's a way :)

I usually like to stop in for a quick fresh salad. It seems like the salad keeps changing though. The usually fresh crisp romaine is now mixed with cabbage, a change I didn't really care for. Actually I much prefer the salad as it was on the original menu. The nice thing is that I am able to modify the... More

Very very good. 2 "hill of beans" with house cheese meat and add an avocado for $22.00 !! My wife and I have them very frequently. All they offer is rather exceptional .

The tacos are delicious. My mother and I make the 1 hour drive to Manchester just for these tacos. Of course it is great to combine lunch at Cilantro with book browsing at the Northshire Book Store. My kids love the tacos too. Local produce in the tacos and home recipes. Friendly enthusiastic service from a young staff that appears... More

Pleasant counter chefs. Quick service & good choices at low-budget prices. I had a Mexican wrap that filled a burrito with cheese, greens, and meat. In addition, there are three different levels of hot that you can sprinkle on your own portion. Their corn ware is recyclable.

Being from Montreal, we don't get to go very often but everytime we drive to Stratton or just go through town, Cilantro is a MUST. I am sincerely in love with the place. The food is fresh and absolutely tasty. most ingredients are local, and it makes a whole lot of difference. The home made lemonade is sweet. Absolutely everything... More

Amazing food. Wish they would come to Bennington! Love the street tacos and they should bottle the salsa verde!

I read some of the recent reviews and had to step up and write a review! We have been here twice and it is exceptionally fresh and flavorful. Every person we have told to " hit up Cilantro while shopping" has thanked us profusely. The house made queso is wonderful and the pork is my favorite. Although I would ♡... More

I love the food here, but I have had a few experiences with the worst service I've ever had. There are a couple of very friendly employees, but if you don't get one of them, your entire experience will be ruined.
