Super Chronic: I won't be a food snob about it, but I do think it's a little bit overrated. I like Qdoba better


You like Qdoba better??  O_o
I think Chipotle is good, but I'd rather eat at El Torito than Qdoba.  And that's a pretty scathing indictment.


Danger Avoid Death: NuttierThanEver: Is this where food snobs bash Chipotle for being low grade overrated dogfood?

That's not limited to food snobs. Only to people who eat.


Whatever, man, there is nothing at all wrong with Chipotle.  They make it a point to source local produce when they can get it, you can watch them grill actual raw steaks and chicken.  You can still see the bay leaves in the pork braising liquid.  This isn't frozen and reconstituted fast food.  If you don't like the flavors then whatever, but calling it "low grade dogfood" is just a bunch of bandwagon BS.  If Chipotle wasn't a chain and instead served the same food at some shack in Seattle run by some 20-somethings, the food hipsters would be Yelping constantly about it.

I loved Chipotle when I was in baltimore.  Then again I'm not a food snob.  I'll kill for one here in Hawaii.  I'd also kill for Whole Foods not to be on the other side of the island.

Chipotle to put original short stories and essays by literary luminaries such as George Saunder, Toni Morrison, and Jonathan Safron Foer on their drink cups, chip bags, and sandwich wrappers so people can have something to read while eating choking wet 8-balls on the porcealin irone throne after eating one of their terribly-made ball-shaped burrito-like monstrosities.

Fixed your headline for you subby. Also, Chipotle sucks. The starbucks of Burritos.

brap: Bazooka Joe, now there's a foodstuff that could weave a riveting short story.  Especially his friend Mort that had a sweater that made him look like an uncircumcised ding-dong.  Not THAT was literature.

Also, you won't get a cool toy like a spy camera or X-ray Glasses by sending 200 Toni Morrison short stories and 1.29 shipping and handling now will you?

Cabana Taco. Come for the Texmex but stay for $1.50 happy hour frozen margaritas.

Gawdzila: Whatever, man, there is nothing at all wrong with Chipotle.


There's plenty wrong with chipotle but I champion any restaurant that makes your food to order while you wait in line. Same deal with subway. No farking around, no waiting for ages for your order, no slopping on ingredients you specifically ask them to hold, no discovering they're out of chicken and offering you something else after you paid, no one completely forgetting your order, no priority for the drive-thru - it's the optimal way to order food.

And after eating the food and reading the literature one can go "publish" a few "volumes" of one's own as well,  exciting stream-of-consciousness stuff that will have you on the edge of your seat, and perfect for Hollywood too.

A wrap is considered a sandwich, why not a burrito?

//not subby

When is a wrap considered a sandwich?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandwich_wrap

"A wrap is a type of sandwich made with a soft flatbread rolled around a filling."

Wikipedia is wrong.

How about the man himself, Bobby Valentine?

http://nesn.com/2011/11/bobby-valentines-invention-of-sandwich-wrap- pr oves-he-is-an-innovative-mind-could-benefit-red-sox-vi/

When he created the first known wrap, he called it a "sandwich".


They have their own nomenclature in the food industry.  E.g., you don't fry bacon, you brown it. A standard nomenclature allows comparisons between differing markets and, for example, allows the application of psychorheological findings across product lines.

Starbucks did this a while back, putting little ever-so-farking-precious jewels of wisdom from celebrity yoga instructors and the like on their cups. But it was worth it for David Cross's, which proved that nobody was actually proofreading these things:

THE WAY I SEE IT - #23


Chances are you are scared of fictions.  Chances are you are only fleetingly happy.Chances are you know much less than you think you do.Chances are you feel a little guilty.Chances are you want people to lie to you.

Perhaps the answer lies on the side of a coffee cup.  You are lost.

tripleseven: BunkyBrewman: More like something to read when the Chipotle effect kicks in.

Came for this, leaving satisfied.

The one and only time I almost shiat my pants as an adult was after a chipotle lunch with extra hot sauce.


There really are some weak-assed spicy food eaters in here. I've been eating at Chipotle since there was only one store. I get two dips of hot and spread of pico de gallo on my burritos, and it's awesome. Their guacamole makes me feel naughty. Just so good (channeling Ralphie May here).

Our kids don't seem to want to eat anywhere else. I'm on about 20 years of nearly weekly Chipotle, and never a case of any GI issues at all.

Had someone try to argue that Chipotle sucks because it's not remotely "authentic" Mexican.

Not liking Chipotle is fine but that has to be the stupidest reason for it. In-n-Out doesn't sell "authentic" German-style ground beef sandwiches either. Who cares, it's delicious. It is authentic food.

With all the poop jokes you farkers should read some farking cups and wrappers.

I guess a stromboli is a type of sandwich, as are egg rolls.

A breakfast burrito is a sandwich, too.

Sushi is also a sandwich.

Phaeon: Anybody that doesn't like Chipotle had better have tried the Barbacoa or the Carnitas. Their steak and chicken are mediocre, but the braised, pulled beef or pork are incredible.


I agree that their Carnitas is solid. Haven't tried the Barbacoa, but now I will if I go back. My issue is that I detest rice and bean burritos. I don't mind their tacos. Their salsa is meh, IMO, but not awful. Local mexican places are better, but their meat probably isn't as good for me.

If they were to obtain Baja Fresh's salsa, it'd be much improved, IMO.

CruJones: I like Freebirds a little more, but Chipotle isn't bad, and you get a damn good amount of food everything but meat.  If it upsets your tummy, well you've got a pretty weak constitution.

DaShredda: Why do so many farkers shiat themselves?


I don't understand this phenomena either.  I eat burritos w/ fresh chilies and hot sauce all the time (even when I was young), and had no problems.  Now, if there's dairy in the burrito, I'll have problems (being lactose intolerant), but I do so maybe once every other month, b/c I can't live w/o dairy.

/however, one can't get around the flatulence if beans are involved.
//maybe you have to start eating spicy food as a child?  idk.

I don't, normally.  And I eat food that would melt your face off.

Something about Chipotles particular type of hot sauce didn't sit well with me that day.  Which is also weird, because I very, very rarely get intestinal distress.
