“Great carnitas (pork) tacos and burritos!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Let's face it, I moved here from CA and it's virtually impossible to find great, authentic mexican food in New England. I love a good taco stand that serves great mexican food with little english spoken. Their idea of mexican food around here is ground beef with some taco seasoning.

Having said that, Cilantro does a great job fitting the bill with their carnitas (pork) and all the fixings that are fresh and plentiful. Hubby and I love the pork soft corn tortilla tacos complete with pico de gallo, jalepenos, corn, cilantro, guacamole and lime juice - heaven in RI!! Im disregarding the fact that they serve BBQ pork and curry chicken in a mexican joint. Forgive me, Im a mexican food purist...but hey, I have to take what I can get around here so Ill continue with my Cilantro taco addiction.

Ole!

PS Still looking for some place that serves killer mexican shredded beef!

“A Burrito Belly?”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Very good, fresh and well-spiced.

Portions are quite large and *very* tasty.

Very good value - hard to leave here hungry.
