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.
Great food for the price. – It is really good. I compare it to other places that serve burritos and i choose it everytime. I highly suggest it.
Fast food when you're not in the mood for fast food – Though on busy days you may have to wait in line for a bit, you move quickly, but just be prepared on those busy days and know what you want. Everything is FRESH, which definitely sets it apart from other fast food joints. I recommend their corn salsa (medium) on any of their burritos.
Quick Mex Fix – Chipotle is a good place to go to get a huge portion at a good price. I agree they do use a good bit of rice but I think it's very good and you can always ask for less. Don't go if you're anti-cilantro though. It's a good balance of spice as well, I think. Their menu isn't vast and burritos (in a tortilla or a bowl) are the way to go. If it's busy you might feel a little rushed going down the line so if you have multiple orders, fax them in first.
Fast and tasty Burrito – For the folks out there with a spicy appetite, try the hot salsa at Chipotle. You could also go in for a variation of the burrito, called the burrito bol, which is essentially the contents of a burrito without the tortilla. I prefer rice so I stick with the burrito bol when I'm at chipotle. I am from India and have essentially spicy taste buds with an appetite for rice. I love this combination at Chipotle: Burrito bol with chicken, corn, medium/hot salsa, green peppers, onions n lettuce.
Rice at Chipotle--not unhealthy!!! – I moved to Honolulu, and I miss Chipotle here! Baja Fresh has no spice, even with entire salsa bar heaped on top of the burrito! Contrary to what others say, rice is extremely healthy and nutricious. There's a reason people in Asian cultures stay slim with their rice-based diets! It's what you add to the rice that can rob it of its health content. Chipotle only adds cilantro to their rice, and as someone who was raised in an Asian family, I like the change from the rice I'm used to consuming! I'm definitely a Chipotle addict, and for me, Baja just doesn't do the trick. It's up to you to try both Baja and Chipotle and decide which you prefer. To each their own, but don't say rice is unhealthy!
Mmmmmm, Chipotle – My husband and I discovered Chipotle about a year and a half ago and we are completely hooked!! The barbacoa (shredded, seasoned beef) with lime and cilantro rice, black beans, cheese, medium-hot sauce (the hot sauce is really hot), and sour cream is to die for. We live 50 miles from the nearest Chipotle and we drive there regularly just for a fix!! Also, if you like margaritas, their's are the best. Just make sure you have a designated driver 'cause these things will kick your butt after just one.
Had a lot better – I think Chiptle is very disgusting. All you eat is a bunch of rice, which isn't bad, but it is very fattening. Not too bad, but I think it could be better if there wasn't so much rice... yuck.
Give me Chipotle of Give me Death! – I love Chipotle Burritos more than any other food that can be served fast food style! If I were stranded on a dessert island this would be my one food item of choice. If you have not experience the mindblowing flavor explosion of delight from a 6 lbs. burrito full of cilantro and lime rice, guacamole and sour cream, fresh salsa, cheese, and marinated steak; my friend you have not lived. The food is worth the stress of learning how to order the perfect burrito, but do not be intimidated, assert yourself and prepare for splendor. There's no wrong way to eat a Chipotle burrito, but I have found slicing it all up into a mixed up mess on a huge dinner plate gets you a combination of all the flavors that cannot be experienced in the foil and plastic basket provided at the restaurant in the somewhat noisy ambience.
Very Addictive – This is a great place to eat.....it is very cheap, and you get full about half way through your meal!!! It is very loud and busy during lunch time, so if you are in a rush, wait until after 1pm. I recommend the chicken fajita with corn and tomato salsa! It is very addictive, I get it for dinner and eat the second half for lunch the next day.
