We were driving from San Francisco to Yosemite valley and had a taste for Mexican food. We usually go to the hole-in-the-wall mom and pop places where we live but when you're on the road taking a chance nowadays is not always a good idea. We saw the Chipotle sign off the freeway and decided to give it a try.... More

Quick and friendly service. Only grabbed a couple of beers. Good selection, cold. Good pricing. Sit outside if it is a nice night.

We arrived right during the lunch hour and I was surprised at the fast service! It was my first time and so I was unsure as to what I was going to order. The staff was patient and I ended up being very pleased with the salad that I had selected. They had a high chair for my young grandson... More

We eat at this Chipotle at least once or twice a month. It is one of my "go to" places to pick up a hot, tasty meal when time is tight. Favorite items are steak burrito, chicken soft tacos, and a sofitas bowl. The menu is pretty straightforward with flexibility to add or leave out any of the particular ingredients... More

I always know what I am getting at Chipotle. It may be a chain, but at least I know it will be the same product. Since I was staying at the very interesting Airport Garden Inn across the street I didn't have any more room for adventures. I just wish Chipotle could be cheaper.

Some Chipolte's are a bit stingy on items. But this one is your standard one. Had lunch here a few times. Very good. Not gourmet mexican, but very good.

Had a decent burrito. You get to put what you want in it. But there are lots of better Mexican food places around. This ain't no big deal.

I always love the burrito bowl.....it is an all in one bowl, combined for healthy eating. It has brown rice/cilantro lime rice, corn, black beans, guacamole,bell peppers, sour cream, salsas and we can also crush and add the tortilla chips to it! And lo! All nutrients put together for you! This is one of my favorite joints in the USA.... More

The fresh guacamole is always the best at this restaurant chain. Clean restaurant and a helpful counter crew.

We ate here several times while attending a conference at the Doubletree. Really great food, friendly staff, and a nice atmosphere!
