“reliable, fast and always draws a crowd”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

I like the steak or chicken bowls. It is always always a good choice. Parking is often challenging during peak hours.

“Better than moe's...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

It's good food. There's better in Gainesville, like the small local places. But for a chain it is good and consistent.

Way better than Moe's. Cool atmosphere, amazing food, and cheap for the college student budget.

“A step above drive-thru fast food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2012

The food wasn't bad but Moe's is much better. After eating at Moe's I was disappointed that Chipotle didn't have a salsa bar or queso. It wasn't awful, but I'm not eating there again when there are so many great choices in Gainesville.

“Services Varies By Time of Day But Ingredients Are Fresh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

If you go to this location between opening hours and 3-4pm (excluding lunch time) your service will be a bit relaxed and the line workers will look like they appreciate making your food. In the evening the staff rushes and just throws the food together any old way. If you're getting a burrito or quesadilla that's fine, but if you're getting a bowl it sorta sucks looking at it when they're finished. Nevertheless, their ingredients are always fresh and guacamole is pureed the way it should be. I enjoy the University location because although parking is scare most students ride bikes so I always find a spot.

The SW Archer Road location by far sucks! Their guca has large chunks of avocado in it that make the texture extremely thick. I know guacamole isn't supposed to be thin but its not supposed to be like clumpy ice cream either. The Archer location also cooks their chicken until it is tough and dry and the line is always long. Furthermore, the location shares a parking lot with other businesses so the only vacant parking spaces are usually in the rear of the lot, which means your have a good hike to the restaurant.
