I'm hiking the AT and have had nothing but positive experiences in every town including Manchester. Unfortunately, the staff was beyond rude to me this evening. Would not eat here if my life depended on it. Great, you source local ( says your signs) use...More

I am sorry to have to write a negative review but when we came in an hour before closing we were treated as if we came in right at closing. They did not like us asking questions about menu items. Even our children picked up...More

I had the Taco Meal Deal (two tacos with rice and beans). My wife had the salad with roasted corn, beans, etc. Everything was delicious. The service was fast, and the food was freshly made in front of you.

We eat at Cilantro several times a month because it is so convenient. It's like healthy, delicious fast food you can feel good about eating.

Nice little take out, but food is amazing. I'd compare it to Qudoba or Chipotles, but much better and great service.
