Had the chimichunga and it looked like a plate of throw up. We didn't not get chips and dip nor did we get refills on coffee. Both the service and the food were bad. Will not return to try again.

This is one of our favorite Mexican restaurants in Omaha. It has a nice atmosphere, good food, and great service. The burrito loco is awesome. Love the tacos and tamales as well. The portions are generous without being too much. We have never had a bad meal here.

Cilantros is one of two places we frequently the most when we are craving Mexican food. I like the rice with corn and the little corn balls that are a burst of flavor. They do use a cheese sauce on their chimichangas that makes the fried shell soft and seem almost steamed. Otherwise I've always really love the food here... More

Went with my family last night. 2 Adults, 1 child with tip: $35 Huge portions, unlimited chips and salsa (good flavor but I like spicier). The Chili Rellenos were good and cheesy! The corn masa was a nice finishing touch on the dish.

There are SO many other choices for Mexican food in Omaha. This one is not worth your time/money. Bland, at best

The typical furniture creates a nice ambiance, proper to enjoy the huge dishes they offer. The taste is good, and the price low according to the size.

All I can say is blah. There was absolutely no flavor to anything. The beef in the tacos was cooked without any seasoning, the only taste the taco had was oil from being deep fried. The refried beans tasted worse than something out of a can.

The food did not light us up to sing Ole. The service was OK. The frozen margarita was pretty basic. Probably won't return, especially for those prices...

The best salsa as stated above. We come here often. But the Bontana Chips are KILLER...this is all you need. The Margaritas to die for. Best service and atmosphere. Love....
