A box of Chipotle burritos?

Are you inviting your entire farking county to your Super Bowl Party?

Meh, the few times I've been (years ago) it was pretty bland. Then again, I lived in a mexican neighborhood with lots of better choices.

Chipotle? How...suburban. I guess if you don't have time to eat a real burrito they're okay. Myself, I only eat burritos that are prepared by natives indigenous to the Yucatan peninsula and delivered to the counter via pneumatic tube from a UNESCO-certified World Heritage site. There's a place nearby that does that. You've probably never heard of it.

Is this the thread where everyone mentions that there are places that you can get a much better taco at than Taco Bell.

Just change the "C" to an "S" and the "p" to a "t" in "Chipotle" and you get a better idea of how their food tastes.

OTB is a sit-down. Chipotle and Qdoba are fast-casual (like Panera, but with tacos). Big difference.

I finally got to a Chipotle last time I was up North, and figured it had to be something awesome for how much people rave over it. It was disappointing. Moe's is quite a bit better.

Panera, however, is pure awesome. Almost makes up for not having a Schlotzskys within 60 miles.

Chipotle is pretty good except their "hot" salsa is wayyyy too mild, and their bean-juce is too watery.

I would hate to know what you consider spicy! I get the hot salsa with chips because I like the flavor, but I dip in one corner per chip because it is too spicy for my delicate tastebuds.

They were out of mild salsa one day when I was there, so I made the wise decision to get hot sala on the burrito for flavor. I think I shiat fire for a week.
 
2012-01-05 09:50:27 PM
I love the kind of hot that you can feel the entire time its in your body. Chipotle's hot salsa does that. If you go for their mild, you're just getting chopped up tomatoes, onions, and green peppers. It's more healthy than some other kinds of fast foods out there, unless you get extra cheese and sour cream and no veggies or beans.

LOL. I don't know, but I usually like to make my "sauces" with Habaneros...
 
2012-01-05 10:09:56 PM
I finally ate at a Moe's today (other farkers mentioned it in another thread). It was definitely waay better than Qdoba/Chipotle and my new favorite nationwide chain (I still miss Mission Burrito in Houston, but its been 7 years since I ate there, so who knows what the food is like now/there are other places I remember from when I was in Texas).

Anyways if there is a Moe's nearby I'd recommend checking it out.

EmmaLou: I love the kind of hot that you can feel the entire time its in your body.


Then you would like this stuff. It doesn't use a vinegar base, so it doesn't heavily change the flavor the way Tabasco sauce does.

Also, we have a number of roach coaches in our area. Chipotle isn't necessarily better or worse, just different.

Yeah, I remember doing that for a while when it was still coo. But UNESCO got all douchey and I've moved on. Now the only burritos I can eat are in the form of peyote-infused dreams pushed directly into my mind from an old burrito shaman. You've probably never heard of him. Because he doesn't exist in this lame-ass dimension.

2012-01-05 11:04:35 PM
I'll give concession that Qdoba has some better flavored burritos (at the cost of insane calories).

Taco Del Mar used to be much better, but Chipotle beats them hands down for freshness of ingredients. They might as well forgo tomatoes and lettuce at Taco Del Mar, cause its just plain wimpy. Also their refried beans are disgusting.

A very large portion of the beans they use in their burritos are supplied by the company I work for, so I love Chipotle.

Yeah the NFL needs to lighten the fark up. This is basically free advertising for their product. Super Bowl Sunday is practically a holiday, and the term shouldn't be locked down.

Besides, doesn't the NFL have some church super bowl parties to sue?

Upwards of 1500 calories per burrito is why i stopped going there.

2012-01-06 12:33:01 AM
Chipotlé is a treat for me. I like the food, the stainless steel and wood industrial motif, and the great music that's usually playing. I absolutely love their tacos. Always get two orders of crunchy tacos, usually carnitas and steak -- and a bag of chips with the medium (green) salsa -- when I go there. It's not cheap, but it's worth the price for the freshness and the quality of the ingredients.

according to their website

IF*
you get

flour tortilla
rice
double beans (1 of each)
steak
fajita veggies
1 of each salsa
cheese
sour cream
guacamole
lettuce

you're at 1405

how are you going over 1500 ?
triple guacamole?
extra cheese?
double tortilla ?
double meat?

I don't even like all those filling items, but I couldn't imagine adding much more to the burrito -- it's more food than I could eat without feeling meh for 3-4 hours

Chipotle is fast food burritos. As far as fast food goes it is pretty solid.

I am not going to compare their burrito to a burrito at some of the local Mexican restaurants.
Just like I won't compare a burger I get at McDonald's to a burger I get at some of the bars in my area.
I don't compare the Chinese/Asian food I get when I go to a Chinese/Asian restaurant by myself or with non-Asian friends with the food I get when I go with an Asian friend (for a lot of places yes there is a big difference, mmm real double cooked pork, think of bacon only better, yes better than bacon (ok technically the cut is the same for both)). One of my friends jokes with me that I am only friends with them so I can eat real Asian food.


Point is Chipotle does not have the best burritos but it is decent, quick, and easy to eat on the go, much more so than a lot of fast food, plus it is healthier than a lot of fast food. So if I am looking for a fast food restaurant, well I go to Culver's or Arby's, but if they are not an option then Chipotle is fairly high on the list of fast food restaurants.

The ad is a joke and the NFL hasn't said a word about it, so there's nothing here for them to "lighten up" about.

That said, if you go to the trouble of trademarking a term, you *must* actively defend its use. There is no exemption for "oh, that's harmless, we'll let it slide". Any and all unapproved uses of your trademark are evidence of genericization.

On the other hand, it's surprisingly difficult to actually genericize a trademark. Several terms many people think of as generic ("Xerox", "Kleenex", "Band-Aid") are actually still protected marks.

I've tried their chicken burritos twice. They tasted like they had about a tablespoon of salt dumped on them. Never going back.

Taco Del Mar may be bland, but at least their food is edible.

Well to be fair he did say upwards of 1500 not 1500, and if the burrito you looked at was 1405 calories then I would say he was pretty accurate. And I have heard the same thing, so I looked up the burrito and bowl that I normally get from with the Calculator (new window).

Surprisingly enough the Bowl with chicken or steak, rice, black beans, cheese, lettuce, corn salsa and hot salsa came out to 665 calories. Add a tortilla and you still come in under 1000 calories at 995. Not bad calorie wise or fat wise, especially if you get the bowl, unless you are trying to eat 4 or 5 of them a day. The only problem is that they have a shiat load of sodium.

Those are called taco trucks. Let me stop you right there... It doesn't matter what they sell, they're always taco trucks. Like, "Hey! That taco truck sells burgers!" Or, "That taco truck sells ice cream!" No, that doesn't make it an ice cream truck!

Ehh, I still love me some Chipotle. Not impressed with Qdoba, and none of the other similar places are around here (we do, however, have an independent place called Jojutlas which ain't bad).

The one thing that annoys me about Chipotle is this: How come they don't call their pico de gallo "pico de gallo"?

bambi121899: That's funny. When I worked at Best Buy in internal communications, we had to refer to it as The Big Game.



If I remember correctly, didn't they trademark The Big Game as well, or try to do that recently?

I worked in sports broadcasting for a long time, and if the company I was with (radio or TV) weren't broadcasting the game, then they were not allowed to call it Superbowl either if it was related to their advertising, or contests.
 
2012-01-06 10:09:50 AM
Chipotle is great. I've been to a Moes a couple times, but I missed Chipotle's hot salsa flavor. They had some extra salsas and hot sauces, but they weren't really doing it for me.
