“Not impressive”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

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.

“Flies in Tacos...”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

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 the restautant. This is beyong disgusting.

Needless to say, we will never again order from Cilantros in Providence!

“Gross!”
Reviewed July 20, 2008

My husband and I ate here because the menu seemed similar to that of Qdoba. While the restaurant owners may try to convince you that it is better than Qdoba- don't be fooled. The food did not seem fresh and I honestly didn't taste any cilantro in my burrito. My husband found a chicken bone in his burrito and that pretty much ended the meal.

“Big, fat burritos”
Reviewed March 9, 2008

The ambiance in here is nonexistent, as Cilantro is housed in what used to be a chain sandwich shop. But the burritos are awesome! They are HUGE, with a wide variety of fresh salsas, guacamole, black or pinto beans, and various meats. They also make a vegetarian version. Take your food to go and enjoy it at home!
