Fantastic little taco shop where everything is made fresh. Your taco/burrito/salad is made to order right in front of you as you make the choices.

Local, delicious, quick and affordable. It is where the locals go and the only place in town,other than Bagel Works, you will ever see a line ( which is a good thing)

While checking out the cool shops in the heart of Manchester (which is really cute!) we decided to eat at Cilantro Taco. It was pretty crowded and a little hard to find a seat. We ended up sharing a table with a man that was kind enough to share his table with us. I can see why it was so... More

When we just want some quick down-home tacos and salads, Cilantro is definitely the place to go. A spare but comfortable atmosphere and the nicest counter staff in town. Well seasoned meats and generous portions all reasonably priced for eat-in or takeout. We only wish they were open later for dinner!

The tacos were excellent. We liked the varieties in salsa, and lamented the lack of guacamole. The corn chips were rather average, but the cinnamon-sugar chips were great. The service was the problem. We were tourists, we had never been there before, and at least to a newbie the process of how to order food was not clear and the... More

We stopped in Cilantro to have a quick meal. It's a 3 stage order. We started with a burrito either a mini or a large. Next you add your toppings, then the sauce. We all enjoyed the burritos very much. It's an inexpensive meal that hits the spot. It's very friendly. Not fancy but it feels like home.

This small little mexican place is a gem. The food comes from local sources and is always fresh. Portion sizes are generous. I love the hill of beans!

Food was okay. Like any other fast food restaurant place that serve Mexican food. Ingredients are fresh, however, they should use LESS oil when they cook. I literally had a small "pool" of oil on the side of my plate. Also, they should change or at least clean the "towels" that they use to hold the hot containers. They placed... More
