Cilantro Grill has a tiny little storefront attached to the Chevron gas station at the northwest corner of Sherman Way and entrances to the 170. Blink, and you’ll miss it.
Cilantro Grill – 7214 Whitsett Ave, North Hollywood, CA 91605
Ordered: pork, chicken, beef tacos
Order Time: 35 minutes
Food quality, flavor, and quantity: great, great, on the large side. 2 tacos are a full meal.
Service: Tytron also waited for about 40 minutes at this place, but said it was packed, and the orders were moving out fairly quickly. He claims the employees were friendly and on point.
Pick Up/Dine in: Picked up
Verdict: Surprisingly great. They served a nice dry rub Mexican-style grilled chicken that I was particularly happy with. The beef was good. The pork was a little dry. Cilantro Grill serves good, fresh, nicely prepared, flavorful, and substantial tacos. It’s not the style of taco I’m looking to fill the El Toro void, but I wouldn’t hesitate to eat here again if I was in the area.
