Don't Eat at Chipotle – Last Friday I picked up my in laws from the airport and then 2 veggie burritos from Chipotle. The only difference between the burritos was that one had the corn salsa and one didn't. My wife and I shared the burrito with corn salsa and we've never been sicker. Nausea, loose motions, all the nasty stuff!!! My in laws were fine, as they shared the other burrito (sans corn salsa). I don't know exactly what happened, but I'm a big believer in the process of elimination and simple logic. I'm never ever ever ever ever ever going to Chipotle anywhere again, and I'm going to recommend everyone I know against going to this chain.
Tacos and burritos are custom-made with fresh ingredients at this industrial-chic Mexican chain. – In Short
Boasting a sleek decor of blond wood, raw steel and exposed pipes, this taqueria hums with conversation and an eclectic mix of piped-in salsa, rock and reggae. Patrons--mostly on-the-go professionals and parents with kids in tow--line up at an assembly-line style counter for hard and soft tacos or burritos (regular, fajita-style or without the tortilla) made with fillings like grilled chicken or steak, free-range pork or shredded beef.
Eh – This place has "okay" burritos. I felt it was over priced and I could get better burritos for cheaper at the farmers Market. One of the only good things is the salsa, and they even charge extra just to have it in your burrito.
Bland Mexican food – I'm not sure why this place is always so crowded. It's very bland and does not offer any variety. Not vegetarian-friendly, either. This place is an assembly line of boring food. I think a frozen burrito would rival it in flavor.
This place rocks! – I love Chipotle. Their food is consistant, fresh, and tastes great. I love the chicken bowl with extra chicken and guacamole eaten with the yummy chips. My boyfriend and I love this place. The only downfall is that the workers sometimes do not listen to what you want, so you have to be very CLEAR. I have seen them screw up people's orders numerous times by not listening to what the person was saying.
Not authentic, but makes up for it by being really really good – This former McDonald's-owned franchise may not be authentic, but the ingredients are fresh, light, and delicious. For those not into heavy, greasy Mexican food (myself included), Chipotle offers a delicious alternative that's made right in front of you to your specification. While the menu isn't as prolific as many other similar places, you have plenty of options in front of you.
The burritos are incredible, although the large mass of rice takes something away from the spicy flavor of the meat and salsa (assuming that's what you get) so it's best to ask them to put a little less rice or grab a bottle of Tabasco, Guac Tabasco, or Chipotle Tabasco (I'd recommend the thirdit has a rich smoky flavor rather than just being hot like the original) and ask them to sprinkle it over the rice side.
When the line doesn't look like the 405, it's nice to munch on the burrito there rather than getting it to go. Eclectic music and minimalist, industrial design help keep the cool, relaxed feel. The employees are all friendly and even when it's packed they usually have smiles on their faces. It might be something in the salsa.
Fresh, Fresh, Spicy and did I mention Fresh? – Chipotle is a fantastic place for everyone to get a little of what they love best. Some people are a ltitle turned off by the menu board - as it seems a little confusing. However once you are "in the know" you can really get exactly what you need.
The Meats are delicious... From the chicken all the way to the Carnitas... all are very tasty. Carnitas are a major draw here.... Though, my personal favorite is the Barbacoa - which is their marinaded - shredded beef. DELICIOUS!
call it "gringo", call it good! – I get tired of people saying it's not "real" mexican - what, not greasy an unfresh enough for you? I'm mexican and am tired of lard, etc. I'm also a vegetarian and find the veggie burrito w/guacamole delish! the chipotle sauce is totaly addictive. also, the margies are strong, cheap and good. only drawback is the severe setting (cold, harsh).
Gringo mexican served Subway style. – If you ever wanted to know what it would look like if Subway started serving Mexican food- here's your answer. The limited menu of tacos, burritos or bowls is put together on an assembly line as you watch. The result unsurprisingly is lukewarm, bland and greasy. Plus there is no salsa bar and extras like chips and salsa cost extra. For better value try Poquito Mas, Baja Fresh, Rubios or pretty much any other taco stand in town. Avoid.
Alot of meat – Here is a place to get a tastey fast food burrito full of meat and little to no fillers (beans and rice). I was impressed on how fast they took my order and how fast they made it right in front of me. What a great place for lunch or dinner.
