Grady, Ralph and I had a day of errands yesterday. Neither of us really enjoy taking trips to town, so we decided to make the best of it and give ourselves a treat. For lunch we went to one of our favorite restaurants, Chipotle Mexican Grill. The food at Chipotle, plus Split Banana ice cream, were the only foods I craved while I was expecting Ralph. 🙂
Now, if you have never eaten at a Chipotle’s Mexican Grill, I strongly recommend it as your next meal out. I really like Mexican food, but that is not the only reason I love the food there. They are commitment to provide “Food with Integrity.” Going to great lengths to procure ingredients that were raised and grown with respect and care is evident when you take a bite from of any of their entrees. The simplicity of the menu is another thing that I enjoy. While you can ask for a wide range of combinations, the ingredients consist of: tortillas, meat (beef, pork, chicken), beans (black, pinto), salsa (corn, hot, mild), dairy (sour cream, cheese), and veggies (lettuce, peppers, guacamole). The food is laid out in front of you “deli style” so you can see everything as it goes into your meal and the servers have always been excellent in my experiences!
Another great fact, they have facts all over the place. They want their customers to be aware and make responsible, informed choices. They have restaurants all over the States, and if Grady and I are planning a drive cross country, we find all the Chipotle locations along the way for meal stops. All in all I have been pleased every time I’ve eaten at one of their establishments.
Do you have a favorite “guilt free” restaurant?
