The burritos are huge, and delicious! Just the right amount of spice, and flavor all the way throughout. They pride themselves on the customer experience and are happy to provide an overview of the menu

Counter-service Mexican in the heart of Manchester. Food is fresh, local and organic. Prices are reasonable and service is friendly. Nice option for a quick lunch

Really enjoyed the food at Cilantro. The food is locally sourced and you can taste it. A little like Chipotle's but much better. Went there 3x in a 4 day stay. It's a no frills atmosphere, but certainly not off-putting in any way. Wish we had one nearby!

Made the trip to Manchester solely to visit the Orvis headquarters. Asked a staff member for a dinner recommendation & wow, did we appreciate this. Food was fresh, flavourful & authentic. Very reasonable price & we all left full and happy. Place had a constant stream of locals coming for meals.

There's not much here for human consumption, unless you like boiled down meat, carbs, and canned vegetables. Being a Vermont chain, and smack dab in the middle of summer, what an insult that their salads offer no fresh veggies other than lettuce, I mean with the plethora of farm fresh goodies at their disposal. Of course the juveniles running the... More

My wife and I spent 5 nights in Manchester trying different places as part of a bike event in August 2016. Many places in the area are pretty high priced, somewhat similar food. Tonight we were looking for something simple, good and not so expensive. Cilantro Taco and Burrito (the name on Trip Advisor is out of date) totally fit... More

We enjoyed our dinners at Cilantro: Street Tacos and Hill of Beans, both with flavorful chicken, rice, beans, pickled onions, corn and sauce. The cost was very reasonable, about $8 each. The server who prepared my dinners was very helpful explaining what items were gluten-free, suitable for a diner with celiac.

First visit and I'm bummed that they are so from my home. Had a Taco American with the pulled chicken and adobe salsa. Perfection.

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.
