“It's Chipotle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

It's Chipotle. Uniformly good. Cold beer at this location. Can never tell when it will be busy. Some days line out the door at 6 PM. The next night 8:30 PM. The next 6:45 PM. The locals operate on crazy clock.

“Consistently Good Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Came to this place on Sunday evening and found almost no people there. If you're a fan Chipotle than you probably have your favorite dish there and simplicity of ingredients make it hard to mess up the order.

“The ultimate take out and green initiatives”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

Great, well designed menu choices. Clean, efficient store design, with very streamlined serving line. Rapid, good flavors, great prices. Spice levels are options. Greatest chips on the planet and really fresh guacamole.

“In the world of fast food, Chipotle is among the best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

In the world of fast food, Chipotle is among the best. The food is consistently fresh, whole and tasty. The Sterling location can have some long lines, but usually they move very quickly - even when they are out the front door.


If you have never been to Chipotle before, your choices consist mainly of burritos, tacos and salads with ingredients you select. You move down an assembly line of employees who add various ingredients to your dish. Generally, choices consist of beef, chicken, pork, pinto beans, black beans, tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, salsa, etc. They will also make quesadillas on request. You then take your food and sit down wherever there is an open table.


One note of caution. The beef, and to some extent the chicken, can be a bit on the spicy side for some with a sensitivity to spicy foods (either on the tongue or from heart burn). I would suggest the pork if you want to avoid the spiciness. The pork has a relatively strong black pepper flavor, but is not spicy.


They also have excellent guacamole and serve alcohol (I have not tried one, but I hear the margaritas are very good).
