“Good food, but over priced and slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

The food is consistently good here but the wait is always so long, the employees really need to speed up the process and need more people working on the line. Some of the people are friendly, others could use a lot of work. The food is over priced for burritos/bowls and the others. And what is really lame is that the food doesn't come with chips! All food like that needs to come with chips and not add $$$$ on for it. Hence why I usually go to Moe's! And the people are always welcoming there. The cilantro rice at chipotle needs some work, its too bland.

“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 27, 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.
