I have wondered why Thom Yorke, who has one of the most dynamic voices in rock history, has pretty much limited himself to that whiny falsetto in the last few records.

Chipotle sucks, period. Go to a real mexican joint and get a really great burrito, plus awesome tacos too. They tend to be small, local places. Am lucky one is just a few blocks away

Also, read a thing about Radiohead not long ago and it said that Yorke started doing the falsetto after seeing Jeff Buckley live over there. He likes it, and they make music to please themselves.

Dear Chipotle,

It is with a heavy heart and empty stomach I write this letter of complaint regarding the quality of food I received today from your store. I pondered if this letter would be read or understood by your employees as I did not feel like writing it in Spanish, or spray painting it as graffiti on an underpass in the West Side. Nevertheless, due to the traumatic nature of my experience today I needed to write this letter regardless.

I was the recipient of three barbacoa tacos today and I was shorted rice, beans and pico. I know you might be thinking 'well, you got the tacos didnt you?' and I did, which is the crux of this most aggrieved letter. My barbacoa tacos were served in hard shell corn tortillas. It's a simple matter of physics that this would not work out well, and your employees should have known better.

If you are reading this letter, written in English, then you probably don't work in the serving side of Chipotle so you may be unaware of this small fact; barbacoa meat is a fairly greasy affair and will tear through a corn tortilla faster than your menu items will tear through a small intestine. Which is what happened to me. All three of my tacos exploded through the bottom of the shells and I was left with a soggy pile of meat and tacos shells that looked as if they had already been masticated.


I tried to eat this messy pile of tacos with a fork but I could not bring myself to do it. I do not buy tacos to eat them with a fork. I reserve the use of fine cutlery for more fancy eating establishments like the Olive Garden. So now I sit feeling assed out by you Chipotle, which isn't very shocking to me, except that usually happens after I eat your food. We are trying to have a society here, Chipotle. Where people eat tacos with their hands, and don't suffer stomach pains prior to eating your food. Your active participation in this would truly be helpful.


There is a dark, thick river of hate flowing from me right now, and it bothers me because this usually occurs AFTER I eat your food. Seeing as the only thing truly authentically Mexican in your restaurants are your employees, they should damn well know better than to ply a hardshell taco with greasy meat. At Chipotles I have come to expect an explosion of ingredients from the bottom end, but again this normally occurs after I eat, from myself, not from the food itself.

When I think of a wetback at chipotle I don't want it to be the back of my taco... I want it to be the counter person making my tacos, who should know better than to put juicy meat in a hard shell. They should offer some warning, in their broken English, or through a third party translator of gang signs that greasy meat will destroy a taco shell faster than chipotle's pico will destroy the average person's rectum.

I pondered the black hearted assassins of joy employed by your restaurant and realized what they lack in quality they make up for in ineptitude and I can't help but wonder as one of your employees filled my taco with greasy, shell destroying meat. As if their intention was to ruin my day, as their lives are seemingly ruined to them as they stand there day after day slapping cheese onto intestinal wrecking meats. What nefarious thoughts pass through their minds as they allow tacos to explode haphazardly across the Valley of the Sun? Are they trying to teach a part of the Phoenix population that is so white they are nearly translucent it is ok to eat soggy tacos? And people wonder why there are still so many bumps in the road of race relations in Phoenix.


I've heard others complain about Chipotle before, saying such things like "only the flies on the table enjoyed the food" and "I've ate better food in a prison cafeteria" and I had defended you...but never again. My love for you is now a shadow of its former self, spilt at the bottom with all its wonderful ingredients leaking out, and as with my experience with your tacos, no fork can salvage this hot mess you have created.

Not only will I no longer be a Chipotles customer, willing to try my very digestive stamina with your food, from this moment on I am on a complete hunger strike. With no real purpose in it but this... With my final dying breath I will fling my emaciated corpse through the front door of your restaurant screaming La Migra causing a mass panic of your employees. I will lay down and die peacefully reflected in industrial shined aluminum siding while carved mezoamerican deities gaze down on my carcass, knowing my withered body will probably still be the most appetizing thing in your restaurant.

My death is on your hands Chipotle. Somewhere in the heavens above Tezcatlipoca is looking down on what you are doing, and he is not pleased. What you are doing to Mexican foods is an abomination to the Aztec goods, with the exception of Montezuma, the patron saint of diarrhea.

xenophon10k: Subby has a weak constitution. Pansy.


my thoughts

you can easily get a rather mild/bland burrito at chipotle. as far as i can tell there's nothing harsh in their ingredients that should cause you intestinal destress...i mean, it's definitely no taco bell toxic hell
 
2013-07-12 10:50:28 AM
I have no problems with Taco Bell like so many people always complain about, but Chipotle will ruin my whole day. I don't get it. Oh well, the barbacoa is really the only thing I would consider above average; everything else is pretty bland with the added bonus of being overpriced and terrible for you. I guess sometimes the Carnitas is okay but that seems to vary based on location.

here's the thing...chipotle, and similar places like freebirds and qdoba, don't even pretend to be "authentic". but they are mighty tasty chains doing mission-style, which comes from california. and they do use more fresh stuff than many other fast food chains.

there is a qdoba about 3 or 4 blocks from my job so i eat there quite often

a farker had a great description for it, but I can't remember. something like "delicate foodie syndrome" or something. dang, googles is no help.

i typically also had no problem with taco bell. if it had been a while (more than a couple of weeks...i was an addict) since my last tb, it did have this very strange side effect. within a couple of MINUTES of eating tb, i'd have tb-scented gas. no intestinal distress, etc, but seriously, almost instantly, farts that smelled of tb!

since becoming hooked on taco casa, i haven't eaten at a taco bell in months. i never ever thought i'd go months without taco bell, aside from the years i was at ramstein airbase prior to a tb express opening up on base. even during those years, i'd have tb multiple times when i'd go home on leave.

Found in a fark thread when trying to find that term for delicate foodie poop problems:

Claiming that Taco Bell makes you sick is the lamest foodie humblebrag out there. 'Oh Taco Bell? My delicate epicurean sensibilities can not handle popular, cheap food. It's OK for the ketchup eaters, but my system requires something more culturally authentic (to make up for my culturally devoid consumer, vanilla lifestyle)'
Let me clear this up for you- no one sitting in the Taco Bell drive through with three screaming kids, an aching back and $20 is deluding themselves about the quality and authenticity of their meal. It's cheap, edible and quick. That's it.
Same for Olive Garden. No, it's not some ultra-authentic trattoria set up to challenge your culinary sensibilities. It's a lot of palatable food for a reasonable price in an environment that's nicer than a fast food joint.

I have gotten food poisoning twice over the past 15 years or so, and both times it happened to be from eating at Chipotle. At two different locations. So now I don't go there ever. Not to mention that there are dozens of real taquerias around here with authentic and much better food, which I eat at all the time and have never gotten food poisoning from.

there's one problem i have with that though. while it's true that most people who go to taco bell don't believe it to be real authentic mexican (though some of the same people i've known DO believe the tex-mex joint a block from tb to be authentic), i've heard MANY people say they love o.g. for their real italian food! that, and "reasonable price" my a$$! cheapest meal on the menu is around $10! i can go to any of the "red sauce" ny italian places around here and get a very yummy pasta meal, hot sandwich, or pizza (also, none of which is "real" italian, but all really good stuff, some of these places here in dfw area are real new yorkers) for MUCH cheaper! and it's much better than anything i've ever had at o.g.!

and i don't hate o.g....it's a place i can go with my folks once every couple of years because they really like it, and i can chow down on one of the 3 things on the menu i do like, plus lots of yummy bread and salad. i just hate how they try to bill themselves as "authentic"

Christ so much, this.

The food is fine.  Not great, not terrible, just fine.  But I can't stand to eat there.  The tiniest noise gets reverberated around the metal-plated room, echoing and echoing.

Keep the exact same decor and put some sound-absorbing tiles on the ceiling, problem would be solved.  Could even get the same color as the rest of the ceiling so none of the customers would be offended by the presence of sound-absorbing tiles.

the_dude_thats_your_opinion.jpg

i kinda tend to put qdoba, chipotle, moes, freebirds, et al, on about equal billing. ok, perhaps moes slightly under the others, but i've only eaten at one once. planet burrito, which as far as i can tell is a one off place in southlake, tx, on the other hand, i'd have to rank slightly higher than the others, except on price. they are slightly more expensive than the others.

i wouldn't bother comparing any of them to anything "authentic" though, since they are all based on a type of mexican-style cuisine founded in california, called "mission style". not knocking mission-style...i prefer it to most tex-mex (and i pass no fewer than 15 tex-mex joints and 10 authentic mexican joints driving approx 20 miles home)

I like Qdoba more than the rest for two reasons. They steam their tortillas and they have the 3-cheese queso. Chipotle almost always manages to rip any burrito I order, no matter how much or how little I order for it. Aside from those two things, they are pretty much all equal to me.

good points. i just happen to go to qdoba much more than any of the others due to convenience. it's the only one of those type of restaurants within walking distance of my office. there have been weeks i've eaten there 3 times. and most likely i'll brave the 100 degree temp to have it for lunch today.
