At the moment, stay clear of the chicken offerings. However, this is a wonderful choice when your time and money are limited.Enjoy!

They tend to short you out rice and fajitas when you order a burrito bowl.. but overall good place to have a quick lunch does get very crowded at times but flows quick. Make sure if you order a bowl you can get the burrito tortilla warm on the side. And also Carnitas are back on this location!!! Woo!

You sent an e-mail saying I reviewed Chipotle. I do not recall reviewing Chipotle. I've never eaten at the one in Salinas. I did eat at the one in the Del Monte Shopping Center in Monterey and it was quite good, actually.

I eat here all the time. Always good. For me too spicy but for the area i think just right. It's super popular here always busy. Never dissapointed. Now they have a Tofu option that is really good. I highly suggest this place. Any of them.

Great new, large Chipotle! Nice to have a healthier choice when on the road. It's located in a newer center. Easy access off the 101 and next to a gas station. Lots of indoor and outdoor seating!

I have eaten at the Chipolte's in Redwood City next to the Fox Theater. It is OK, it just seems kinda bland to me! Guess I could add more hot sauce to my burritos,lol! Just tastes too commercial. But it is good for a quick,on the run Mexican lunch/dinner thing.
