Chipotle Mexican Grill

- Patio/Sidewalk Dining, Takeout
Houston Press's Description
Known for its clean, minimalist atmosphere and hefty foil-wrapped burritos the size (and weight) of a small infant, Chipotle pioneered the fast-casual, assembly line Mexican food genre that's since grown to encompass chains like Qdoba and Baja Fresh. The protocol in Houston and elsewhere? Diners proceed single-file down the line and orchestrate the construction of their burrito, tacos (soft or crunchy), rice bowl, or salad with proteins including braised pork carnitas and grilled chicken or steak. Rice, beans, and a kaleidoscope of salsas from mild to sinus-clearing, plus garnishes like sour cream, guacamole and lettuce, complete the picture. Once heavily backed by McDonald's, Chipotle broke away from the fast food megacorp in 2006 and has since gained favor with customers by sourcing all-natural, hormone-free meats and even some local produce. It hired celebrity chef Nate Appleman as "culinary manager" in 2010 to man the New York test kitchen and work on research and development to keep Chipotle on the forefront of food trends. Finding your nearest Chipotle is a snap on Voice Places.
Tips from foursquare
Park in the back where there is more space.
Give the new brown rice a try. Has a great flavor without making the meal dry.
The customer service here rocks and the manager Ricardo really knows how to treat his customers!
Came during off-peak hours and the food wasn't that good...very fatty and poorly seasoned meat. Overall food quality not too good this time. Customer service was average.
Best chipotle in town. Biggest burritos of any chipotle and the service is always good
