I have been to this Manchester CTR. VT burrito palace at least five times. Whether you order one small or larger, be prepared for a gourmet adventure. The ingredients are local and select. Your choices are custom to satisfy every palate. The making is to order and visual. Service and knowledge outstanding. Physical plant appropriate in every dimension. Clean from... More

I got the salad which had a lot of variety. I liked the spicy pumpkin seeds. Would have liked the option for pinto beans, only black available. The shredded meat is very good! Dining room is small but nice/casual.

I reviewed this place in 2012 and though the food was great it seemed expensive for what you got, especially since it was counter service. However, since then there are many more options and specials, their homemade limeade is an awesome compliment. It's still only tacos and burritos but its simply awesome. So what else is great ... they use... More

Probably the best in the quick grub category in Manchester - good food from quality ingredients served fast and easy. Clean place, fast and good service, clean design, good food.

This was a great little find- like a homegrown version of Chipotle. Friendly staff, great food options with streamlined ordering, and a lot of stuff was made in-house and locally sourced which is always cool to see. I enjoyed the taco meal deal and was not disappointed! Also, their house-made Limeade was tasty and not over-sweetened.

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
