Chipotle Mexican Grill Restaurant Review: When Steve Ells founded the first location in 1993 he based it on the idea of a simple menu of great food prepared fresh each day, using the same techniques as gourmet restaurants. And this is what you still get. Chipotle’s hustles wrappers filled, like pizza-sized burritos, with such tasty offerings as nicely charred steak and marinated chicken breast to barbacoa, a shredded Mexican barbecue. Go veggie with black beans and meat-free options. These toothsome treats are then graced with the house lime-and-cilantro rice, one of a trio of mild-to-raging salsas, and sour cream, guacamole and other delights. The final product is a delicious two-fisted wonder that can cover both lunch & dinner. Chipotle also serves a trio of crunchy tacos and fajita burritos that come with grilled peppers and red onions. Wash it all back with a quick margarita or a Mexican beer. Office types take note---some locations take fax orders, helping you skip the often long lunch time lines.
