We stopped in for dinner after traveling all day. We love Chipolte so this was not a thought for us on where to go. We have visited this place several times over the years since it has opened and we are seeing a serious decline in the quality of food and service. When we got there at 6pm there were 11 people in line ahead of us. Four people behind the line and two people working in the kitchen cooking. It was 10 minutes before the line moved because the staff behind the counter was working on a to go order before waiting on the customers inside. Then when it came time to take the person's order in line, they were our of the items they wanted so they had to wait on the two guys cooking the food. Instead of taking the next person in lines order they just waited. Then when we finally got up to order, once again they were out of rice, chicken and black beans. So we waited again. All in all it took us 25 minutes to completely get through the line with our order and get home.
Not sure if there has been a change in management, but while we were there it was clear there was no one in charge helping push things along. The workers were so far behind at a time when you would think they would be prepared for dinner rush and while we were standing there three employees walked back in, not sure from break or not, but none of them went to assist getting the food out and customers served. We left and the line was out the door and onto the sidewalk. Felt sorry for those behind us who most likely waited longer. Not sure if we will visit this Chipolte again since each time presents a new dilemma or challenge just to get served.

I love Chipotle and this one is better than the norm with a pretty small seating area. The employees were very friendly on our recent visit and got people through the line quickly. Way faster than the ones we usually go to. I was pleasantly surprised when they put more cheese and lettuce on my bowl without grumbling or giving you the look. The food was fresh and tasted great. Other Chipotle's need to see what they're doing because it's working.

Service was fast and food was tasty...except for the chips. Some of them were not crispy. They need to keep a better eye on their quality. Would still go again, for what that is worth.

I'm pretty boring and usually just order a salad with chicken on top. It's always the same-and always very tasty! This place amazes me at the crowd it draws. Equally scary is the quantity of food that I see people eating for lunch! The burritos, a popular favorite, are huge!
