BUrritos – They have real good burritos here! They are huge and full of flavor. I highly suggest the chicken...always charbroiled to perfection!
Tacos and burritos are custom-made with fresh ingredients at this industrial-chic Mexican chain. – In Short
Boasting a sleek decor of blond wood, raw steel and exposed pipes, this taqueria hums with conversation and an eclectic mix of piped-in salsa, rock and reggae. Patrons--mostly on-the-go professionals and parents with kids in tow--line up at an assembly-line style counter for hard and soft tacos or burritos (regular, fajita-style or without the tortilla) made with fillings like grilled chicken or steak, free-range pork or shredded beef.
smoky chipotle sauce! – I remember when I donated once for UCLA Medical Center, they would give us free Chipotle burritos for compensation. Even then I thought it was pretty delicious, and I went to get some on my own. My favorite is the Carne Asada burrito, and if you're not feeling as hungry, burrito bols are good for those who are carb-conscious. You can order a bottle of beer there too, which isn't too common in fast-food like joints. The burritos are pretty huge, because the workers stuff them with rice, beans, meat, and all sorts of toppings by request.
Bland food, nothing to brag about, even Taco Bell is better – I ate at a Chipotle restaurant to check out what they had to offer. Initial impression is the place has updated decor (reminds me of a fancy Baja Fresh but with natural colors instead). The preparation is unique in a sense that the customer has a say in what goes in and how much (i.e. sauces, vegetables, etc.). Expecting a tasty burrito, I piled on all the sauces (hot) and anything I could think of. Having been in and around the LA area at various burrito joints, I was greatly disappointed with Chipotle. I abhor Taco Bell but TB is definitely a step up from this place. My burrito was bland with no flavor whatsoever from either the rice, vegetable, or fillings (I got the chicken burrito). I ended up throwing away more than half my burrito and went somewhere else to eat. I would rate this place down at 0.
what? – you guys have to be kidding me. this chain is owned by mcdonald's, and the food tastes like it. i'm blown away that in a city with such a rich mexican heritage, the best we could do for a best of list was places like this and la salsa which are pretty much inedible. you're better off pretty much anywhere else.
Not only is Chipotle a great deal for your $ but they are the biggest, tastiest burritos I've ever had! You can fill it with your selection of numerous ingredients to create the perfect meal for you. The service is always above excellent. They also have wonderful $2 margaritas!
Salty – i made the mistake of ordering carnitas burritos in this restaurant. i tried it twice and they were the saltiest burritos i have ever had. i couldn't even finish them.
Dry undercooked . . . . . – Beans!!!! Over priced. I've never had worse beans in my life. Gave it a second chance, but was worse than the first time. Meat was OK, but worse beans of any Mexican (Taco Bell included) restaurant I've ever had!
the land of oz – isn't this the favorite burrito of ozzie? he lives on them, so how bad could it be?
McDonalds Mexican – Considering McDonalds owns Chipotle I can see why the place looks so nice. Spare no expense. They have one burrito that's decent and actually may send me back one day. But really people, with so many good local places in Los Angeles do we want McDonals Mexican food joints popping up all over the place. Support your local community and workers.
