Cilantro Cocina Mexicana proprietor Art Trevino crafts a menu of authentic Mexican comestibles he learned to prepare in his mother’s kitchen. Pairs or quartets of diners can warm their tummies with veggie black-bean soup or practice their engineering artistry by building their own nachos into a cheesy replica of the Parthenon. House specialties include seafood-stuffed portabella mushroom and chicken milanesa, a thin-sliced piece of poultry breaded and fried to a crispy crunch. Like polygamy among dinnerware, combination platters relieve the monotony of sticking with only one main dish. A beef tostada, a chicken corn taco, and a potato enchilada play dress up with a choice of two sides such as beans or corn, and a chili relleno cuddles with an 8-ounce skirt steak underneath warm flour-tortilla blankets.
For dessert, diners can spoon-carve statues of smooth-talking game-show hosts from homemade caramel flan or creamy tres leches cake. Though not included in today’s Groupon, diners can sidle up to the brightly decorated margarita bar for a strawberry margarita ($6.95), tequila ($5.95), or cold beer ($2.75–$3.50).

About Cilantro Cocina Mexicana
The Garcia family has a lifetime of experience in the restaurant business and brings a unique touch to traditional family recipes. Growing up in the restaurant atmosphere, Rocio Garcia cultivated a new experience for Mexican dining, serving up his version of mouthwatering favorites like carne asada, tacos on corn tortillas with a layer of refried beans, steak, pico de gallo, and a slice of avocado, burritos, enchiladas, and more, all brought to life with fresh vegetables. Diners can cool off in their patio with homemade sangrias—white, red, or peach—or choose from a fully-stocked bar that includes margaritas, cazuelas, pina coladas, canataritos, micheladas, and more.
