“Great location but beware limited seating space during peak hours.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Chipotle is great and this location is as good as any. Only a few minor squabbles. One, they close earlier than most other Chipotle locations (9pm) and they are not at all accommodating if you arrive a few minutes after. And two, because it's Palm Desert and it's almost always hot outside, all of the tables here are all indoors, so they've got less overall seating space than Chipotles in other cooler climates who have indoor and outdoor seating. That means during lunch or dinner hours, you may not find space to sit or may have to share tables. Other than that, the staff seemed eager and outgoing and friendly, and it was well-managed.

“Always amazing quality food ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

I come to this Chipotle at least 2 times a week and it is always fantastic. The cleanliness and customer service is outstanding and most importantly the food. The employees are always friendly and they make the experience of Chipotle the way it should be.

“Very good, very quick, very delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

Always enjoy Chipotle and this restaurant was no exception. Fast, friendly service and your order is made just the way you like it. The environment is clean, well-decorated, but not fussy. Like that there is such a diverse variety of folks enjoying lunch, everyone from construction workers to dressy professionals to the sheriffs deputies seemed to love this place. The new spicy tofu topping is great on a salad, has quite a kick. Love the huge burritos, too. Yummmm!

“Have it your way!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Good friendly service as they make your food to your specification. It is all fresh, cooked right in front of you, yet quick enough to be "fast food"

“Stingiest Chipotle ever!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

We are regular Chipotle customers because we enjoy the menu, ease and speed of most of their restaurants. This Chipotle in Palm Desert was extraordinarily stingy in the amount of meat they put in their food. Instead of a regular spoonful, they give you half a spoonful. I think the amount of meat they put on their dishes is set by corporate but this place really skimps. In order to get the normal amount you'd get at any other Chipotle, you have pay an extra $2 at this place. We will never come back here again!
