What's your order at Chipotle?

I always want to branch out from my regular order, but I'm a creature of habit. This is the only fast food chain I go to semi-regularly and I wouldn't mind being inspired to try something different.

My order:
Burrito bowl with white rice, black beans, fajita veggies, chicken/steak half and half mix, mild salsa, corn salsa, sour cream, cheese.

My friend and I get lunch here and split this, and a side of chips and guac. Great quick lunch for under ten bucks.

*waits for a barrage of posts about how much Chipotle sucks*

  1. Burrito bowl black beans (I always ask for more beans), light on the brown rice, cheese, hot salsa and guac. Lasts for 2+ meals.

    Dang it - now I want Chipotle!

    1. Barbacoa burrito; all meat and hot sauce, no rice/beans/junk. I hate when there's more cheap filler than there is meat. I don't mind paying the price but not for beans and rice.

        I feel like the filler is the best part.

          I like your style, that's mine as well. They often stare at me oddly with my meat quantity request and the response of "none" to "white or brown rice?" I do enjoy the beans though but always skip the rice. It's usually a feat to manage the burrito without spontaneous explosion of contents.

            Yeah, pinto beans are ok sometimes. The first time I ever ordered all meat the guy put the regular portion of meat on the tortilla, wrapped it up and saw that it looked like there was nothing inside. It was flat. He said he couldn't charge me full price for it and just gave it to me.

            1. re: mucho gordo

              Yeah, since I order so few ingredients in mine, depending on who is working the register, they charge me per item vs the total... usually saves around $2.

                I love that story! I guess because I just load up on multiple quantities of meat it becomes a burrito-sized burrito.

          2. I get the salad with lettuce > either chicken or barbacoa > salsa verde > lots of cheese > guacamole (costs extra) > more lettuce. I use the guacamole + 6 or so lime wedges from the condiments area as the dressing. I do not use their dressing.

            Light, refreshing, and low carb.

              I forgot the fajita vegetables just after the lettuce.

            2. I only want a giant burrito when I go to Chipotle and so I rarely go, probably once every 3 or 4 months but it's always a delicious treat. I am a protein junkie so I usually get a burrito with double meat (chicken is good, carnitas great, steak flavored OK but always chewy, hoping to try barbacoa next time), 1/2 pinto and black beans, fajita vegetables, no rice, mixed mild tomato and corn salsa with hot salsa, sour cream and guac on the side. Fingers crossed that the haters might save their energy and not bother posting :)

              1. Well mine isn't real exciting either, but I get a bowl, with brown rice (recently switched over from white), with steak, hot salsa, and cheese. That's it. I mix it all up once I get back to my office after the cheese gets all melty, I rarely eat there. I used to get the same in a tortilla but now I have a much healthier diet and spending 300 calories on a tortilla doesn't work for me :)

                I'm going there today for lunch actually.

                  Wow, your cheese melts. I always want cheese but it never melts so I skip it.

                  1. re: fldhkybnva

                    It depends. Today it did not melt, so I popped it in the microwave when I got back to work for about 20 seconds. It helps when you mix it all in with the meat and rice (hard to do with the burrito). It will melt all on its own if the rice is fresh though. I I got more of the bottom end of the container for rice today, so it wasn't completely hot. I try to go after 1pm because everything seems to be freshly replenished from the lunch rush, but today I got there just before 1 when it was still busy... timing really does matter there.
