The line was fast, the staff was pleasant and high-spirited and the place was very clean. There were no surprises and just very good food.

Convenient location just a short walk from downtown and parking structure. Staff unfriendly gossiping amongst themselves instead of taking orders. I eat at other Chipotle locations, smaller servings given and food was lukewarm. Would not recommend.

Your typical Chipotle experience. I will say that it was difficult to find this location within the Del Monte Shopping Center. We drove around for ten minutes looking for any kind of signage to indicate where this Chipotle location was. Once inside, the employees were nice and there was ample seating.

We frequently enjoy having a carnitas bowl at Chipotle and are very familiar with their product. However, this restaurant was disappointing for several reasons. To start,the servers were not paying attention to the orders being given and we were not able to convey what we wanted. The tables were left uncleared for long periods of time and patrons ended up...

Allright let me get this out there - I live in India and there are a good number of Mexican restaurants here in Mumbai - but no Chipotle. This is THE stop on my yearly visits, and when I am away I admit, I lust for it. Being a veggie, I can eat the Burrito Bowl EVERY night for a... More

My wife has a gluten allergy. Chipotle is one place she can dine anywhere in the world without having an allergic reaction. This location upholds the high standards for fresh food and cleanliness. The staff was even more friendly than at other Chipotles (and that is not easy). The food is hot, fast, and tastes great.

Can always count on the food to be good at Chipotle. Not your typical fast food place. The Del Monte Plaza has a nice selection of quick take out food spots.

Salmonella poisoning from salad. Sickened at least five people I know. The food is average at best, meat is often undercooked and staff can't comprehend basic orders.
