Yes they may be owned by McDonalds, but do not hold that against them! I'm sure most of you are all familiar with this wonderful burrito chain by now. To me there is no better place for lunch.
What I love about burrito is how easy it is. Set up in build your own format you simply tell your server what you want in your burrito as you walk along (duh, this is how all burrito bars work). But what makes Chipotle great is that you can get any variation of burrito you can imagine. For example, say you want a veggie burrito but served in a rice bowl form, no problem. Burrito as a salad? Not a problem. Even better, every variation is the same price. And if you get the veggie option guacamole is free! This make the menu and the process easy.
My personal favorite is the fajita veggie burrito served as a salad or the traditional wrap. Delicious.
For me Chipotle is great because its quick, healthy, and reasonably priced. I know i am not alone in my love for this chain, but I definately wanted to be one of the first to sing its praises.
Didn't anyone get the memo? McDonalds hasn't had anything to do with Chipotle in years! Just wanted to get that out of the way. When I first visited Chipotle, for some reason, I expected actual Mexican food, like something I would get at my local mom and pop taqueria. Instead, I was disappointed to find that my veggie burrito tasted more like an American deli wrap than a Mexican burrito. There was something odd about Chipotle. … more
Chipotle has to be my top choice for quickly made burritos. Every time I go to Chipotle I get my food quickly. The service is always great and the food is more than filling. Chipotle competes with other restaurant chains like it, Moes and Qdoba, for example by offering spicer meats and fresh ingrediants. While they don't offer anything "con queso" or have any "specialty" burritos or tacos, they don't need to. The simplicity of their menu is refreshing in a time when their are often too mantoptions … more
Looking for a quick and tasty lunch when you must eat gluten-free can be challenging at best. And if you’ve got small children, you know can't let them go hungry for too long or you’re really asking for it! The Mexican food chain Chipotle recently opened in a shopping mall in my area, so I decided to give it a try. I started with my usual questions about tortillas and fryers and cross-contamination and marinades (sigh!), when to my surprise, the worker handed me an allergen card … more
Read their menu. Their vegetables are mostly organic and pesticide free. Their livestock are raised free grazing, without hormones. The price to eat a wholesome meal here is about the same as the garbage of the burger chains. I would say this is a subway of mexican styled foods. Just don't get the burrito wrap, that's where all the calories are. I get a bowl.
I am a recent graduate trying to navigate myself through the real world and at times finding it harder and easier than expected. Go figure. I graduated from UC Santa Barbara with degree in Art History … more

Chipotle Mexican Grill is a chain of fast-casual Mexican-style restaurants best known for its large burritos and chunky guacamole. In addition, it is one of the first restaurants to successfully transition to the fast-casual style of dining. The restaurant was founded in 1993 by Steve Ells of Denver, CO (where the company is currently headquartered).
McDonald's used to have a majority share in Chipotle; however, full disinvestment was completed in October 2006. The restaurant chain employs more than 18,000 workers and currently operates in 32 US states, as well as the District of Columbia and the Canadian province of Ontario.
Today, Chipotle restaurants serve chicken, beef, and pork in burrito, bowl, or taco formats. The restaurant is also making a transition to using more healthy ingredients and naturally raised farm animals as a means of responding to a growing nationwide trend in healthier eating.
