I??ve always felt this was a much needed addition to on-the-go Mexican in a city such as New York that lacks the omnipresent authentic Mexican food that states like California have. Ingredients are fresh, particularly the oh-so-soft, chewy, freshly made, super-sized tortillas, and I love the details like the array of bottled hot sauces you can bring to your table, and the fresh cilantro and lime you can taste in the rice. Chipotle??s entire image is founded around not only fresh, healthy ingredients, but use of locally grown/family farm/organic/sustainable/no-hormone/no-antibiotic produce, meat and dairy whenever possible. The burritos are so big (and nothing is more filling than Mexican) that I often have half leftover that I take home for another meal. One needs to think about that when they compare Chipotle??s $8/9/10 price with cheaper options like Mcdonald??s or Taco Bell? you??re getting twice as much food, much healthier, much tastier, and like I said, burritos make great leftovers.

Their burrito??s offer a lot to choose from- cilantro lime rice to start, a choice of pinto or black beans (true vegetarians or kosher followers should stick with black beans, as the pintos have a bit of bacon in it), flavor drenched, tender, shredded, richly marinated (for eight hours!) pork (carnitas) or beef (barbacoa), or grilled chicken or grilled steak and of course all the extras you desire (guacamole, cheese, sour cream, FRESHLY made pico de gallo/salsa). I??m assuming the grilled meat is lower in calories/fat. They offer four different types of Salsa, including Tomatillo salsa.

The restaurant design and table layout is spacious (more spacious than your typical NY crowded ??caf?), and feels more like eating at a diner than fast food. It??s also very clean.

If there??s one thing I do crave every so often its Mexican Food. New York City has a nice assortment of places to choose from. So while Chipotle is definitely tasty, it??s not the best or most original food. Yet they do have fresh food and you always know what to expect. It will also fill you up whether you??d like a burrito, burrito bowl, or soft and hard tacos. If you are looking for a quick fix for your Mexican craving and you happen to be near one, then this is the place for you. You could ask for things on the side, taken out, added, and also play around with their ingredients to make something not even the menu.

A favorite of mine are the enormous burritos. You could try it out with different salsas, beans, and meats. You really got to love how they advertise how their food has integrity, which in short means the meat and dairy they use do not have any added hormones or antibiotics in them. They also use organic and local which is especially huge in this day in age where everybody is trying to eat healthier.

As we all know as some point or another we have found ourselves to be in a rush and pick up some quick bites. While a fast food chain may not be our first option, because there are so many other alternatives in this big city, it may be the only choice. That??s why you got to love this place. It??s kind of on the healthy side for a chain. And it beats any of the other ones in taste and freshness.

For years, Chipotle has been one of my guiltiest fast food pleasures. When I first got to college, there was a Chipotle adjacent to a Popeye??s, and I still wonder how it??s possible that I did not weigh 400 pounds. Though in actuality the calorie consumption probably nears 1,200 when you order a burrito, I have turned my Chipotle dining frequency from two to three times a week to very special occasions (like exceptionally brutal hangovers). I have also switched over from the food coma inducing burrito to the more socially acceptable salad bowl, in which the main ingredient is in fact lettuce, something you would never know by looking at it. The decision to switch from rice to lettuce is also directly proportionate to my irrational hate of cilantro. I cannot explain why I feel so strongly about this poor, unassuming herb, but I have hated cilantro since the first time I tried it. The workers at Chipotle do not just lightly dust the rice with cilantro; they pile it on there by the pound. One of the downsides of Chipotle is that there is usually a long wait, but the assembly-line style service helps to speed up the process, and you can eventually feast on the tastiest (and surprisingly freshest) of Mexican fast foods that never disappoints. On the upside, they serve BEER. I??ve also discovered in my many visits that one of the other great things about Chipotle is that if I order using my menial knowledge of high school Spanish I can usually score some extra guacamole. So thanks Chipotle, for enhancing my love of avocado by charging only eight dollars for a meal that keeps me full for eight hours.

Chipotle won my affection several yrs ago with fantastic food. Its always fresh and tasty and hits the spot every time. Lately tho- i find that they dont give you as much food. they give you tiny proportions of meat and rice and a burrito bowl which normally filled the bowl (and my stomach) leaves me feeling hungry afterwards. I'm not a glutton...dont get the wrong idea. i just think its wrong that they got us all hooked on chipotle by serving good proportions of awesome food, and now they are being stingy with it. The servers, when asked to put more (i.e a full spoon of meat or rice for example) look at me like they are doing me a favor.

boo. chipotle. boo.
