Went on a Sunday when they were still serving brunch and lunch.. 5 of us were given a basket filled with a generous amount of mini muffins, bread and what I think was fried tortillas with cinnamon and sugar... Guacamole was pretty good, and my friends that ordered from the brunch menu were happy.. however, I ordered the bbq pork burrito expecting it to be filled with everything that was listed the regular burritos...howver it was stuffed with pineapple, I bit down on more than one bone, and the bbq sauce wasn't that great....everything came with a side of salad, but with no dressing, and topped with what was probably canned corn...I would never go back to this Cilantro location especially for lunch....there was also only 2 other tables filled, so that right there tells you something! when restaurants across the street (Calle Ocho) had a long wait, and people were happy to be happy..

The $10 fajitas may sound like a deal but the meat is so tough you can chip a tooth!

This place needs some management! The food is OK but the poorly trained and uninformed servers makes the whole experience unpleasant!

I <3 cilantro. I am a student so I can't afford to go out very often- so when I do its because the food is good. Mondays are 10 dollar fajitas (amazing deal). Brunch is a steal and always fresh and delicious. Try the stuffed french toast-- yummo! The service is always good-- refilling my water, asking if I need anything-- the people are always polite and the food is great!

Just another mediocre Mexican place. From the food to the service the place is just disappointing. Moreover, in Mexican restaurant you would expect a lively atmosphere but the place is just sad. There are plenty of other Mex restaurant in the neighborhood that are way more welcoming and have good food. Suggestion: walk by and don't stop.

What happened to this place? I used to go there very often but recently the food and the atmosphere went down the hill. The dishes seem reheated at the microwave. The most disappointing part is the atmosphere, it used to be a very friendly and cozy place to hangout, but now it changed. I definitely don't recommend it.

We go to Cilantro regularly, at least once a month. Their version of a Nicoise salad and their house salad, nachos and fish tacos are our favorites. The guacamole is great, too. The food is always fresh and abundant, the prices are reasonable, and the atmosphere is friendly and fun.
