“Disgusting”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The least they could do is clean up the parking lot where the people who are eating outside leave their trash on the tables that flies into the parking lot. It's really gross seeing all the discarged burrito wrappers in the parking lot.

Food is really gross as well (I don't like Chipotle)

“Fast Burrito's slow to the draw.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

I had read in other reviews of this location that they always had a line. This is true! I have been there twice in the last two weeks and there was always a huge line. Not too big of deal, since I have been in Chipotle's in other parts of the country that had huge lines, but service was still fast. Well the line moved so slow (in part to only having 3 employees working the line and register) that I started to time the process. A burrito or bowl typically sat out in the cold once the rice & meat went on the bowl or wrap for upwards of a minute and a half before the next employee asked what salsa and other toppings you wanted on it (I timed this process on 3 different customers). I even delayed as long as I could to put my order in, but a person ahead of me in line slowed the process way down by being unclear in what he wanted on his taco's. Needless to say, during my two (and only) visits to this location, my burritto's were cold. The only reason I gave this location a rating of 2, was because it's Chipotle - which I enjoy no matter where I eat them! I am planning on going to another location due this ones poor service.

“Don't let the long lines dissuade you – they move fast.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Chipotle breaks the “fast food” stereotype even though they are arguably fast-food. They use a classic assembly-line technique that would make Henry Ford proud: At the first station, you pick your meat and format (burrito, tacos, bowl), then toppings, then check-out. Unlike the over-processed greasy paste-like food produced by many fast food places, their ingredients are fresh and crisp and maintain their individual flavors pretty well. Also unlike most fast food places, they have beer, margaritas, and other bottled drinks . This a great alternative for those days you are short on time but sick of eating the same old stuff.

“HUGE Portions & VERY Fresh Ingredients”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

This Chipotle location easily wins for the largest portions ever and extremely fresh ingredients. While in line, I saw that every burritto needed two wrappers because one wrapper could not fit the circumference! My parents and I each opted for a burritto bowl, and they were enormous.

This location has limited inside seating but a good amount of outdoor seating.
