We had a bad experience at one of their other outposts, but our return to the original was a whole different experience. Service was prompt and attentive. The lively and colorful setting was spotlessly clean. The complimentary chips and salsa was a cut above some other in town. We split the day's special, and trio of fajitas. They included grilled...

We stopped by because our friend has an obsession with Mexican food. I like food, so we came with. The atmosphere was wonderful, the staff friendly, the portions were huge. Huge. The chips and salsa were great. The Margaritas and the Piña Coladas were huge and great. We all seemed to be off the fajita mind, so we got different... More

Just passing by and decided to stop for lunch. Had a taco salad which was very good with the chips and salsa. Salsa was very thick compared to what we were used to ("Tex-Mex" style) but very tasty. Chile relleno was very good also as were the fajitas. Keven, our waiter, took very good care or our group.

Our waitress at the Miracle Hill location was superb! We had a large group, 12-13, including a toddler and several older kids. She was unflappable. Always pleasant and engaging, while getting all of the orders correct and keeping sodas, water and chips refilled. The food was good, but nothing that makes it special in a town with many fine Mexican... More

Just a shade different than the norm at this Mexican spot. The fajitas were good and plenty to eat but the there is spice on these that is strong enough to deter from the meat flavor usually in fajitas. Had no problem eating them up but won't be on my favorite list.

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
