Welcome To Cilantro Tacos!

Here at Cilantro tacos, our meats are everything. We are proud to offer the following meats fresh, never frozen, and cooked to perfection in our own style! You’re going to want to try them all. Seriously!



Let’s give it up for barbacoa! It is carefully selected and cut from angus beef for its wonderful texture. It is then braised with grilled herbs and spices until fantastically tender with a unique tangy and sweet flavor. Barbacoa is one of our signature meats that is a must try for taco lovers. You will not be disappointed!



‎Carnitas‬ is deliciously marinated pork that is stewed for hours until perfectly tender and then grilled to perfection. It is sometimes called shredded pork and you can get it in a taco or a quesadilla, among other options. However you get it or whatever you call it, our carnitas is bound to delight and have you craving for more.



One of our signature meats is la lengua, a Mexican delicacy that is simply delicious. It is for the free spirited, adventurist, who loves to discover new things and try the extraordinary. It is technically beef tongue, but its tenderness and flavor is amazing! If you haven’t tried it, you are missing out.


Grilled Shrimp

Hands-down the best shrimp you’ll eat all month!  No matter what meal they’re paired with, Cilantro Tacos shrimp are just yummy!  Just the right amount of blackened seasoning to draw out the sweetness of the shrimp.  Mmmmm….



Light and flaky, a white fish like you’d expect from a San Diego food truck.  Without all the travel and waiting in line!



Sliced thin and cooked to tender perfection, our steak beats them all.  Paired with a burrito or some tacos?  Yum…


Al Pastor

Fresh pork marinated in a mix of sweet and savory seasonings, then slow-roasted all day until it’s tender and the seasonings flow through the meat.  For sure not to be missed!


Ground Beef

We take tremendous pride in our ground beef as well.  With our special mix of seasonings, this isn’t your Grandma’s recipe!  Strong and loaded with savory flavors, and perhaps you’ll even taste a bit of something sweet?



Grilled just perfect with a mix of moist tenderness and the Chef’s favorite seasonings, you can’t go wrong with some Cilantro Tacos chicken on your dish!
