Chipotle Mexican Grill: Steak Burrito ($6.00) Rating: 6

Mark Lim - If you like Mexican food but don't like all that strange ethnic stuff then Chipotle "Mexican" Grill is perfect for you!

The food there lacks the authentic tastes of a local tacqueria stand but their burritos are ok. They have a fresh and clean taste which normally you'd think would be a good thing but when I'm craving a burrito I want a greasy, oily, salty, dense, and satisfying one. Their food almost looks... healthy...

Chipotle is the last place I'd go to fill my animalistic hunger. They're about as Mexican as, let's say, Tom Cruise.

Look how clean it is! Yuck!

Their Steak Burritos consist of small lean cubes of steak, pinto beans, seasoned white rice, sour cream, and choice of sauce.

I think Chipotle lies somewhere between Taco Bell and a good authentic Mexican restaurant. It's not quite fast food and it's definitely not a taqueria. It's most likely going to be the next McDonald's so you'll probably be seeing one on every corner in the future. It's no replacement for good Mexican food but it sure is convenient.

Oh, by the way... This is how a burrito should look:

Carne Asada Burrito from the taqueria :) They cut it straight off a giant piece of beef!

Be Fat! Be Happy!

Chipotle is a bit too "bland" for my tastes. good if you need a lunch on the run but not really ethnic enough for my tastes.
