Food was made fast and fresh. Guacamole and chips were a nice addition to the meal. The staff was helpful in deciding which of there yummy salsa would go best with my meal. I will definitely eat here again when I travel through Manchester.

A great idea that simply fails. Ingredients may be key but rice and beans and the burrito small size really don't rise to a size level worth the price. Vegan burrito is possible but getting them to add the other half of an avocado instead of the unwanted meat is a chore. Tables aren't cleaned regularly and that's a large... More

We ate lunch at Cilantro a few weeks ago. We had their burritos and they were very good. More choices that we would have imagined. The prices were very reasonable.

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)
