Chipotle Grill - Coming Soon To A Streetcorner Near You


Recommended Posts

Agree with the comments about "healthiness" of Chipotle...only if one orders wisely. Burrito wraps have a surprisingly high carb count, but getting a bowl would work for low carb. Sodium is high and I agree that halving the portion is probably a better way to go.

And they have just recently opened in Wheaton Plaza directly across from the Costco-next to Mayorga. That little corner now has Panera, Elevation Burger, Chipotle, Mayorga* and Costco for dining options...not too shabby if one has to swing by Target or Costco and needs to pick up a quick meal.

(*Mayorga sells some nice snacks...nothing big but they are tasty.)

As someone who watched things being assembled at a Chipolte Grille yesterday, I'm unimpressed at a myriad of things on the health-front. Even with the bowls - unless you, the diner, are very careful about pointing and saying "No," they'll ladle on sauces that are extremely high in sodium and dairy.

Does anyone know about GMOs here? I'm assuming that they're opting out based on their latest (very powerful, well-crafted) ad campaign, but it never hurts to ask.

One thing's for sure, they sure make a tasty burrito - skimpy as all-get-out on the meat - they appear *large*. In fact, *very* large. Is the wheat, corn, beans, tomatoes, good for you? Does anyone know? What about the chips?

If you go all-in at Chipotle Mexican Grill, you'll get one heck of a tasty burrito for $6.75 in perhaps less the time it takes to get a Big Mac and Large Fries at Mc'Donalds - I was in-and-out in less than two minutes, perhaps less than one minute. It is sterile, measured, and extremely fast.

And boy does it taste good.

Good for you?  Depends on what you're looking for.  They have a nutrition calculator on their website that gives not only calories but sodium, fiber, protein, vitamins, etc.
