I had the Speedy Gonzales special and it was delicious, hot, and just the right portion size. My wife enjoyed the veggie fajitas which were more than she could finish. The staff is friendly, courteous and provides great service. The restaurant is attractive, clean, and comfortable. It's a little out of the way, but worth the effort.

Good service from our waitress.Food is served quickly. Perhaps too quickly. Ordered cheese dip and it was good! Much better with a big dose of salsa. Ordered a vegetarian quesadilla and it was so good we ordered another! Salsa is excellent. Wine is limited in choices but ok when it came. Husband ordered Dos Equis Amber and he loved it.... More

This place has great Mexican food at normally expected prices but without the huge noisy crowd of Jalapeños. Very authentic. Great serving staff and all food is prepared fresh.

We stopped by here for lunch recently and it was a good experience. They have a diverse menu (and do have a few vegetarian options). I had the California Super Burrito (not the whole thing) and the wife had the lunch portion of chicken fajitas. Both dishes were very good. They have Dos Equis (both lager and Amber) on tap,...

First visit here. Convenient for the "island dwellers".....probably not for those unfamiliar w/ Wilmington Island. Service was good...we arrived about a minute after 7pm....Happy Hour ended at 7 ...and the server stiffed us....especiallyo since he was aware it our first visit......could have "greased" the wheel a little, ya know. Husband ordered chicken chimichanga, I had the chicken w/ mushrooms, onions,... More

Went after hanging out at the pool for a bit. Enjoyed the margarita with a mini Corona, yum! I had the shrimp fajitas and beans and rice. All was fantastic.

Tried this new place out on the island in the hopes of finding good Mexican food; but were disappointed. The salsa was ok, but the chips tasted old and greasy. The fajitas were greasy and had twice as many strips of green pepper as onions and beef. The chicken soup was not even warm, and had little flavor. The best... More

I miss this place being downtown, I'd go to lunch there a few times a month just to eat outside. (Can't speak to the new location). Food was always good and the lunch menu was very reasonable.

When eating out and on our travels we always like to eat at Mexican restaurants as they are usually kind to Vegetarians :) Cilantro's was conveniently located across from the Hyatt Regency in Savannah and as such became a convenient option. The food was good however nothing extremely special, the portions were reasonable and any amendments were well received by... More

Our waitress was too breezy. She didn't really slow down for a real answer. Food is okay. Overall the salsa that comes out with the chips is bland and a little watered down. Past restaurant service has been okay as well. It's the best Mexican restaurant on Wilmington Island but mainstream public goes to Cancun which has been a huge... More
