Eating Out
A Giant Chipotle

So I heard a rumor that Chipotle's are where it's at when it comes to Mexican food challenges. Something about the "Chipotle Challenge". Are these rumors true? Anyone know of such challenges? Anyone done one? Mmmm, I love Mexican food...


I'm gonna eat you! Get in my belly!

In my fairly humble opinion, Chipotle is garbage. They throw some parsley in the rice and charge $8 for a burrito. It's not even really mexican food - it's supposed to be shi-shi fusion...But is it a big burrito? I guess. But not as big as you'll find at the numerous Los Angeles *AUTHENTIC* mexican food places that end up being more legendary and...well...good. If you want to read about a couple, check out my site - - this isn't a shameless plug...but I have pics of some of the gigantic burritos I've eaten. :)

The link he's talking about is Check out the "La Bamba", that's a real burrito!

No way, Chipotle is not too bad. Very flavorful, very filling, and I'd give it two thumbs up. Of course it is trying to appeal to a mass market, and it is fast food now so it will lose some authentic touches that it had years ago. But it's good, great cost to taste ratio. Every burrito I've had there is close to 1.5lbs so that's not bad.

I definitely dig you on the mass market comment - it's difficult to make something "extreme", "authentic", and widely-considered to be delicious when you've got a chain that has to remain corporately profitable. And, to give credit where credit's due - Chipotle is obviously able to turn profit by mass-producing burritos.

But still, growing up in the largely-latin communities in the LA and Ventura county areas, I can't help but favor the small places for mexican food. Don't get me wrong - I'm probably going to Del Taco tonight for dinner - but for drag-out, bar-fight delicious - I'm giving it to the little guy.
