    I loooove Chipotle. They're great burritos. My favorite is the barbacoa beef. Mmmmm. The chips stink, but I don't go there for the chips.

    I never have! My belly's growling after looking at the menu, though...

    Lately I have been breaking up the monotony of packing lunches for the kids/husband by packing bento boxes. Those are from the website I've been using for ideas. I'll try to remember to take pictures tomorrow.

    haha!

    Seriously though you could use fat free turkey bacon with low or fat free cheese. The only high calorie thing then would be the bread.

    I don't eat at Chipotle on principle. The principle that it's owned by McDonald's. (I know, I know, I'm going to be that person but I'm not trying to lecture anyone.)

    I like trying out local taquerias and restaurants which is easy in CA. I've also had a lot of really good tacos from taco and lunch trucks. I love me some taco al pastor and those radish slices. Though my favorite taco joint on the east coast was in a boho neighborhood owned by an older white gentleman who apparently spent some time somewhere south of the border. It was a perfect marriage of yippie (hippie + yuppy) sensibilities and 'authentic' taste! Like duck al pastor.

    Edit:

    Actually, I did eat at Chipotle twice. Once when I first visited my friends in DC, my friend swore by the place for lunch. And the second time years later when I had that travelling salesman job and it was there (which is often how you eat when you have that job, hence the expanding waistline phenomena). I had a burrito. I remember on both occasions it was okay. Honestly, I can't distinguish it from other chains like Una Mas.

    Goody, more for me then! Actually I had no idea McDonald's owned them until my Husband mentioned it tonight.

    Yeah, that was pretty funny.

    It was the only substantial thing I ate all day, the rest was water, orange juice, yogurt, and pudding.

    Actually, they are no longer connected because Chipotle didn't want all the bad publicity it was bringing. They've always been completely separate, aside from being financially backed by the corporation, which is actually rather distantly removed from the franchise restaurants we all know and hate.

    Sadly, I find their burritos ho-hum. I will eat there, but it's not usually worth a considerable amount of effort. They are better than Moe's, but that's about all I can say about them. I much prefer the small local taco shops.

    Taco shops? I'm pretty sure that if you randomly selected any taco shop in town and any fast food burger place in town (except In-N-Out), that the taco shop would be on a par or cleaner.

    I've never fallen ill to a taco from a cart or a truck, either. They're at least as safe as a backyard barbecue (in fact, they're probably safer), and I'm sure you've ate stuff like that before with no ill effects.

    This is very true. The best tacos I've ever eaten in my life have consistently come from a truck. Occasionally when we're at work very late, some big shot will hire the taco truck to come around, and you'd think they were giving away gold coins the way people rush over. I don't worry too much about the sanitary issue. I trust the taco people at least as much as I trust some teenager working the grill at a fast food place, and I also think that people generally worry too much about food/cleanliness issues.

    I do enjoy Chipotle though, and I'll usually choose it when I do because of convenience. If I'm at the movies, there's one there. If I'm at the shopping center, there's one there. A local taqueria takes a little more effort to seek out, and sadly I don't put the effort out because when I'm hungry I'd rather eat right now.

    Did you really chuckle? If so, I am very proud of you!

    Makes perfect sense.
    Sadly, I find their burritos ho-hum. I will eat there, but it's not usually worth a considerable amount of effort. They're also not on every street corner around here which I'm sure makes a difference. I have to work a little hard to get to one as a better than Moe's, but that's about all I can say about them. I much prefer the small local taco shops.
    That's not sad, to each their own. They aren't on every street corner around here and I have to work a little harder to get to one so that probably makes a difference. Yes definitely better than Moe's. Mark hates both and prefers Chinese food, but he is very picky. He is the only person that I've ever known to smell their food before eating it. I also noticed you not mentioning Taco Bell. I really do think they serve puppy chow there. It really is .

    Is there a Armadillo Grill in your area? They aren't too bad. I haven't found a local Mexican restaurant that I was thrilled yet. In fact we haven't found a favorite restaurant since moving to Raleigh 7 years ago. Oh well

    They must be nicer in California. Any sandwich, hot dog or Cuban food cart/truck that I came into contact with in Miami seemed very dirty to me so I've always avoided them. Backyard BBQ is disgusting. "Um...I'll have some e coli, fries and diet coke please, that'll be all thanks!"
