Had a beef burrito. It was average at best. I'd much prefer Taco Cabana, but there aren't any here.

Anyway, that was several hours ago, and now I have what I call "The Chipotle Ass"........Febreze cannot help this situation.


Wife's nose is turned up now, not sure if I'll be getting any later on tonight. Thanks Chipotle.

I've had one recently as well , taco bell makes better burritos.

it's not great, and not Mexican by any stretch of the imagination.

OMFG - someone who actually eats at Taco Hell

We found the ONE Person!

Chipotle is about a million times better than any Taco Hell

The things people eat claiming it's mexican food.

If you are looking for that style of place Bullritos is far superior.

Chipolte will nickel and dime you to starvation. Qdoba is 100% better.

For Mexican food in Houston I like ninfas,mamasitas, and pappasitos.

This. Taco Bell's black bean burrito is way better than any of the crap-sandwiches at Chipotle.

Even Taco Bell's bean burrito is superior.

Haters gonna hate, but I like their chicken burrito occasionally

granted there are better places for burritos, but they are not near where I work and easily accessible for lunch
Link Posted: 11/23/2012 2:48:55 PM EST
People here camped outside the door for a week waiting for it to open.

I went in about a month after it opened and the food was only OK.

Baja Bistro has MUCH better burritos.

You have Chipotle but not Taco Cabana? In Texas?

Where are you, in some God forsaken part of the state like Lubbock?
Link Posted: 11/23/2012 2:49:58 PM EST
Freebirds is good if you're in TX.

I've been to both a few times and didn't really like either one, but I thought the meat quality was better at Chipotle. That was a few years ago, so maybe they have changed. I usually go to Freebirds for a this type of food (but I wouldn't exactly call it Mexican food).

May not be authentic Mexican food (though the one by me has authentic Mexicans working there ), but I like their steak tacos.
They are just a little too pricey.
Link Posted: 11/23/2012 2:50:49 PM EST
Overrated and overpriced. It's just an 8 dollar torilla stuffed with rice. I can make that at home for a 25 cents.
Link Posted: 11/23/2012 2:52:00 PM EST
Chipotle to me means $$$ version of Taco Bell. I usually get the bowl along with a fountain drink comes out to 8.91.

Barbacoa is only viable option @ Chipotle.

A dare: try a Chipotle burrito without any salsa.

You'll see how tasteless and nasty they are. Effectively nothing more than a rice-filled tortilla. Other than the grilled peppers and onions, none of their ingredients can stand up on their own.

And grilled peppers and onions aren't anything special.

That makes more sense. It is hard to find a city in Texas that has a Chipotle but not a Taco Cabana.

You are on your own for decent Tex-Mex once you get north of the Red River or east of Sabine Pass.

Just had a bowl there about a week ago, it was food

They didn't have chipotle sauce which was disappointing

The chipotle tabasco is awesome. I keep at least 2 bottles in the fridge.
Link Posted: 11/23/2012 3:06:19 PM EST
I found their barbacoa beef is decent, and their hot salsa is passable.

Trying to eat a meal there without those two things would be severely disappointing I think.

Yep, if you want Mexican stay away from the chain restaurants and stick to the Mom and Pops.
Link Posted: 11/23/2012 3:09:10 PM EST
I've still yet to try one.

The steak is good if it's fresh, but if it's been sitting a while it dries out and isn't as good. But yeah the hot salsa has pretty good flavor.

Definitely not missing anything- as others have said, bland and overpriced. Moe's is a better deal if that's your thing.
Link Posted: 11/23/2012 3:14:10 PM EST
Decent food. If you want 'real' Mexican flavor you might be dissapointed. Damn long line every time I go to the local one.
Link Posted: 11/23/2012 3:16:54 PM EST
I don't mind it when I'm looking for something different for lunch... They certainly use better meat, fresher veggies and salsa etc, than taco hell, that is for sure.

Listen to this man.

When I was living in TX, I had Chipotle, Qdoba and Freebirds. I thought the ingredients at Chipotle tasted best in general. But it's been a few years and my town just got a Freebirds. I might have to give them a second chance.

Illegal Pete's is better than Chipotle, and Chipotle is better than Qdoba.

And anyone who thinks that Taco Bell is better than any of those is just plain funny ...




Anyway, my standard order at Chipotle is a Chicken Fajita burrito with three salsas (pico, green, and corn) plus cheese and sour cream.

It's plenty good.
