We ordered lunch from our office and after just under two hours the food still was not delivered we called twice and finally left a message for the Manager. When the food arrived it was cold and not edible. They offered a 10% discount and still no Manager called back to apologize or offer a future discount. This is not... More

Attending Johnson and Wales, the university directly across the street from Cilantro's, I often heard it's name being passed around as a decent Mexican restaurant that I finally decided to try last month during a lunch break. Walking in the door with a small group of friends, it appeared pretty empty-- which was welcome at the beginning of our 11:30... More

I would give this place a try the food is way better then Chiptole, you have more options to choose from and it's really good. I've had chipotle many times and sometimes it just ok. I've been here twice and it's as fresh as it can be and the brown rice is cooked just right unlike Chiptole who undercooks it.... More

It's hard to believe people drive pass Cilantro's to eat at Taco Bell when this is better prices and better my leaps and bounds. A burrito packed to the max is under $8 and it's so filling it is well worth it. I love the tacos especially since you can mix it up and have a variety like beef, pork,... More

I am not usually fond of tacos, but my husband loves Cilantro Mexican Grill, so I gave it try, too. I discovered that they offer pulled pork as one of the several meats to add to your creation, which the friendly staff prepares in front of you. I had never thought of having pulled pork in tacos. Those tacos are... More

The food is okay, but the PEOPLE are horrible. They are very rude, unhelpful and slow. It's too bad the service ruins everything.

This is a chipotle style place but the employees take much longer to put your order together. My crispy steak tacos were nearly ice cold. The head employee was nice and apologetic, but we spent more than we would have at chipotle for food that wasn't very good. The fresh chips are worth it, but that's about it. That being... More

The burrito belly let's choose from a bunch of options and they have a good selection of meats, they have grilled fish and veggies for the vegetarian in the group. They also have beer and

Not impressed in anyway. Its fast food mexican, but seems to lack some of the freshness Chipolte has. Won't go back, because there are so many other options.

My friends and I ordered takeout from Cilantro Mexican Grill last week and upon arriving home, opened one of the tacos that was rolled up in aluminum foil. To our dismay, a black bean seemed to be moving inside the taco... upon further inspection, the LIVE fly was walking all over the chicken taco having been rolled up inside at... More
