Chipotle: Gourmet Burritos Plano Reviews
Big Burritos Aug 13, 2008
There are a lot of fast food types of chains out there and for the most part these restaurants serve a purpose. I don’t really like fast food, but one restaurant really stands out and is more than a fast food place. Chipotle Grill is one of those fast food places that started in Denver, began to get popular and McDonalds decided this would be a great place to add to its chains. You would not know that it belongs to McDonalds because of the entire concept. The architecture of each restaurant is very unique, with no two the same but you know that you are in a “Chipotle.” Each of the restaurants has original art by Bruce Gueswel which is inspired by the ancient Mayan artistic style. You can check out his website to see his work.
When you come in to the restaurant, you get into line and then the system begins to flow like this: Pick your style; burrito, soft tacos, crispy tacos or salad. Start filling, pay up and then you sit down to eat.
The menu is so simple: a Burrito, a couple of tacos, and a salad. Though it sounds limited, you can really have a great fulfilling meal. The giant flour tortilla is how you start your burrito. You can then choose your meat; Chicken, Steak, Carnitas, Barbacoa or vegetarian. You then get to choose your salsa, next comes the extras like chips etc and then your drinks. You just walk up and they will lead you the process. It is fun and a very lively place to eat.
They take pride in really knowing where all there food comes from by looking back on the supply chain making sure everything is kosher. Things are very plain, lots of recycled paper and a plastic trays. The drinks are all self serve and some of them even serve beer. It is a good place to hang out with friends or to just people watch.
They have restaurants in most states including CA, Texas, Co and throughout the Midwest.
