“Decent food, horrible decor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I've been to a lot of Chipotle restaurants since the early days. They USED to be a great meal deal--less so today as the prices have gone from "fast food" to the equal of "sit down dining." I like the shredded beef on any kind of dish.

The thing I really hated was the all-metal decor--the walls, the tables, EVERYTHING--it was like dining in a creamery. As you would expect, all of that metal made the acoustics unbearable--though it was cold outside, I took my meal out.

I'll try Chipotle's again--but not the "heavy metal" version. There are many good options for your dining dollar right nearby.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

Just an amazing tasting burrito bowl. Everything was hot, both temperature wise and spicy. And we ordered just medium. You will satisfy your Mexican desires with their servings. Atmosphere was different and interesting. We couldn't get enough we have eaten here twice so far!

“MMMM Chipolte”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

LOVE IT. Always good, always fresh, never disappointing. I love, love, love their shredded beef and corn salsa. The only thing is their burritos are HUGE and impossible for me to eat without making a mess.
