It is not the most authentic Mexican food but tasty and well-priced. They definitely do a mean vegetarian taco and I saw few option which were gluten free. It seems the food is all sourced out locally which makes for better local economy and fresh food. The restaurant has charging stations, free Wi-Fi and water station in case you need... More

WE go here at least once a week for Lunch or Dinner. Our 8 year old loves it and there's plenty of options for everyone. The weekly meat specials are always a hit!! They have vegetarian and GF options as well.

Being from Snow Mexico every time we come down to the Vermont Open in March, we make it a must...

Planning a trip to VT in August, will be 45minutes away from... More

Loved my “Americano Taco” with flour tortilla, liked my “Street Taco” with corn tortilla. Corn tortilla was unfortunately not warmed enough so it was a bit crumbly and stiff. Chicken filling and beef filling were both tasty, with the beef taking the top spot. House Queso Fresco was terrific. Most of the sauces/salsas/accompaniments were very good, though the hot sauce...

Had two of the street tacos and decided to go with chicken and avocado with roasted tomato salsa. More taste per bite than I could imagine. Loved it. Healthy, great tasting and very reasonably priced. Will return when we're in the area again.

We stopped in just for a quick bite & we really surprised by the mid-level rating for Cilantro Taco. Best tacos you'll ever taste. Great menu options, from roasted corn to avocado, and everything was yummy. Get that rating up, fellow TripAdvisors! It's better than that.

I've been here twice now. This is one of my favorite types of food, but I feel this place is "meh." Not awful, not great. It's a good addition to Manchester to have a really affordable place, but it's not outstanding. Not enough flavor going on for me

As a person with Celiacs, I have to be careful of where I eat and who is preparing my food. I've been to Cilantro a few times on various trips to Manchester. Every time, I am impressed with the level of understanding of GF food prep. They assemble everything right there in front of you, and as soon as I... More

We hadn't been to Cilantro for about year, but stopped in today for a quick lunch. Both our burritos were excellent. My "mini" was stuffed with black beans, roasted mushrooms, lettuce, and the house queso fresco. Nicely complemented by fire-roasted tomato sauce, it was a real treat. My husband reported that his regular-sized burrito with chorizo was also great. Cilantro... More

Cheap eats, but you wait and wait and then the girl making the food looking constantly up at the menu as she had NO IDEA what was in each dish (there are only a few) and it was HOT and felt like Chipotle
