Chipotle Mexican Grill, the popular chain restaurant that serves burritos, tacos, and other Tex-Mex style items, recently opened its newest location on August 6, at 4001 Freeport Blvd, intersecting Sutterville Road and just minutes from the City College campus.

Brandon Estes, a business major, likes to hang out with friends at Chipotle and has a favorite item he always orders.

“Steak burrito. Every time. I’ve never gotten anything else,” Estes said.

In addition, there is one menu item city college students will not find in their cafeteria: Beer.

Chipotle is the closest spot that City College students can go to and enjoy a beer.  Anyone can have a variety of imported Mexican beers as long as they’re are over the age of 21.

“That’s interesting,” said Chinua Rhodes, a cultural anthropology major. “It’s like McDonald’s offering beer.”

The chain that opened its first Sacramento location in 2001 in midtown, focuses on simple fresh ingredients, a streamline production approach, and reasonable prices to keep Mexican food lovers coming back again.

A typical Chipotle burrito features staple ingredients such as beans, rice, cheese, and a choice of meat.  Tacos, quesadillas, and burrito bowls round out the rest of the vegetarian-friendly menu.

Chipotle’s menu is constructed much the same way an automobile is produced: in an assembly-like fashion. Once an order is placed, the flat tortilla begins to take form, taking its customary submarine, taco or bowl shape as up to three people prep and work together to bring it to life. Each is responsible for a certain detail along the line.

City College students, many of whom are on a tight budget, welcome not only the grill’s close vicinity, but the not too-expensive prices.

“It’s affordable,” said Nicole Silva, a nursing major.

Silva, who likes to see what goes into her burrito and favors the chicken, plans to return.

Even more welcoming to today’s students are the online ordering options, designated burrito “pick-up” spots, and the new iPhone app that allows users to search locations and look at a menu.

Rhodes believes that although Chipotle’s food concept might not be totally unique, “It’s close enough for me.”
