Chipotle in Gaithersburg? Other Mexican food?

  • m

I have never been to a Chipotle, but have seen it listed on this board. Yesterday, craving Mexican, we walked into the Gaithersburg Chipotle and were quite surprised. It appeared to be a McDonald's Mexican-style eatery; but mostly, it was filthy.

We drove on down to Rockville's Cuban Corner for our usual Moors and Christians, Fried Plaintain, and Boiled Yucca Root in Garlic Sauce. Quite exceptional, but alas, not Mexican... Any words on the Chipotle? And any great Mexican in the Rockville/Gaithersburg area?

  1. I like Mi Rancho up in Germantown. I don't know if I'd call it "great Mexican" but it's decent and it's not fast food.

    1. You're right about McDonald's style Mexican.
