“Great food...wonderful service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2015

Loved our fajitas, frozen drinks and fried ice cream at Cilantro's! The food was very good, prepared quickly and Ana, our waitress, was very sweet and attentive. Definitely worth a visit!

“Stopped by for a margarita”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2015

Stopped by for a margarita on the Monday before St Patrick's Day. The place wasn't very busy a sole patron at the far end of the bar and a couple at this end. There were a few tables with guests. We ordered the 3 margaritas on the rocks with salt and some chips and salsa. Two of the waitstaff were behind the bar. One appears to be a bartender but occupied chatting with the sole guest. the other seems to be a bartender/server. The bartender/server is taking drink and food orders from new people at the bar as well as orders from tables. The bartender(?) asks the other for a diet coke for the sole guest. We even had to wait to get our check. We felt ignored. The place is nice offering a cold plate running the length of the bar to place your drinks to keep cold (doesn't really work with plastic cups, though.

“Fresh food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2015

Very quick service, fresh food and great margaritas! They have a small outdoor seating area and there's a small metered parking lot across the street.

“Fresh and very tasty!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2015

We had walked by this restaurant several times during our two-day stay in Savannah and had taken a peek at the food that the people seated at the tables near the window were having. The food always looked fresh and plentiful, so we decided to try the restaurant on our last night. We were not disappointed: we had the quesadilla rellena and the fajitas dinner. Both were fresh and very tasty! As a matter of fact, it was probably the best quesadilla ever! And the spicing was just right: like real Mexican food (not tex-mex). Although this restaurant is on a main street very close to the port, the prices are not exorbitant like other restaurants on the same street. A great find and excellent food - we highly recommend!

“Great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2015

There were long waits at many restaurants one night so we decided to give them a try. The service was great, the food was better then your local Mex place, and the drinks were tasty.
