    Barbacoa and black beans are legit here.

  • Tim K.

    Often quite busy but almost always efficient.

    Фаст-фуд на твердую четверку! Нет пережаренных котлет и булок. Только мясо, овощи и соус гуакамоле!

    Daniel Black · May 7, 2014
  • Tom O.

    27 people in line. 3 people working (V E R Y. S L O W L Y) behind the counter. Always small servings. Amazing how this place keeps packing them in.

    Tom Odell · September 24, 2013
  • Peter O.

    Go around 11:30AM. Line is out the door by noon

    Peter O'Toole · July 18, 2013
  • Lexi O.

    Literally the slowest chipotle I have EVER been to, every single time. My goodness.

    Lexi Osborne · July 14, 2013
  • Daphne B.

    They are super nice here- if you need a little more of something - ask... They will likely accommodate you!

    Daphne Bach · July 13, 2013
  • Rommel D.

    Line at the door right now!

    They hand out the smallest portion of any chipotle. Be on the look out

    alejandro ramirez · May 2, 2013
  • Darth A.

    Consistently the worst chipotle ever. Slow service even when you call it in and give them enough time to make it! It shouldn't take more than 5 mins to make a kids meal.

    Darth Arielle · March 12, 2013
  • Tiffany E.

    The kids taco kit is a great deal!

    Tiffany Estrada · February 24, 2013
  • alejandro r.

    You get the smallest portions at this location compared to any other Chipotle. Boo!

    alejandro ramirez · February 23, 2013
  • John T.

    The line is ALWAYS long. This is easiest the slowest Chipotle in the city. Just accept it.

    John Tomaszewski · January 28, 2013
  • Brad H.

    Gluten free options. Burrito bowl or corn tortillas for tacos.

    Brad Hall · January 16, 2013
  • Double D.

    Service is generally very bad, but there is one employee who is consistently terrible. Try to avoid interacting with her at all cost. You'll know who it is.

    Double Deuce · January 7, 2013
  • Aaron N.

    Possibly the slowest chipotle.

    Aaron N · December 27, 2012
  • Thomas R.

    No beer here. Boooo :(

    Thomas Ruschke · December 13, 2012
  • Swann F.

    Good, tasty and fast.

    Swann Freslon · December 8, 2012
  • Matthew C.

    Burrito bowl, black & pinto beans, chicken, mild & medium salsa, sour cream, lettuce, and guacamole. Delicious slow-carb meal.

    Matthew Cassinelli · November 5, 2012

    Get mix bead and chicken...

    Yusuf · September 16, 2012
  • Dev H.

    Bad service, but the food makes it worth it.

    Dev Heshmatpour · July 26, 2012
  • Behzad R.

    The most amazing part about chipotle is that they play Manu Chao!

    Behzad Richey · May 31, 2012
  • Double D.

    If you're ordering for multiple people, place the order online. That will reduce the number of people you piss off.

    Double Deuce · May 29, 2012
  • Jeremy H.

    Big line at lunch, but moves fairly quickly :)

    Jeremy Hermanns · May 21, 2012
  • Kevin D.

    The chicken was raw :/ don't get me wrong I love chipotle but they should take more time to finish grilling the chicken no matter how long the line is.

    Kevin Dykes · May 16, 2012
  • Dee C.

    Okay to bring leashed dog into the patio (be considerate; calm dogs only; be prepared to clean the mess if Fido pees/poops)

    Dee Cappelli · May 15, 2012
  • Alex E.

    Worst chipotle in LA! So rude that you feel you're bothering them as soon as you get in!!

    Alex Evans · April 8, 2012
  • Hayley P.

    Consistently one of the worst Chipotle locations. Runs out of meat, inconsistent portion sizes and pricing for same items on different trips, rude, inhospitable staff. Do tired of it never improving.

    Hayley P. · March 3, 2012
  • Robert W.

    There's a difference between normal Tobasco and chipote Tobasco sauce, try the chipotle one drop per bite.

    Robert Wallis · November 28, 2011
  • Tom O.

    My favorite is the chicken burrito bowl with guacamole!

    Tom Odell · November 20, 2011
  • Tiffany G.

    Order online; the line gets crazy around lunch time

    Tiffany Graham · October 29, 2011

    Simple, fast mexican food. Fajita Burrito, awesomeness. Read more

    Amit · October 24, 2011
  • Mike M.

    FYI. You get more if you order a burrito bowl, also one of the few places on the promenade that gives unlimited refills of soda

    Mike Moreno · October 14, 2011
  • Anthony M.

    Love chipotle but not this location. Rice was undercooked, green tomatoes, salty beans... LAME

    Anthony Montes · June 24, 2011
  • Bernard R.

    Hidden menu item: jalapeños.

    Bernard Rodriguez · March 1, 2011
  • Putri V.

    Nice 'n spicy....

    Putri Vannisa · February 11, 2011
  • Joy

    I try to come in for lunch whenever I can. Food is quick & tasty. Skip tortilla & rice for low carb meal. Super friendly staff. Love their iPhone app for to-go orders when I have to eat in the office.

    It's weird that they charge $1 for chips, but they're really good.

    Whitney Lauritsen · October 25, 2010
  • William C.

    The service is so, so sloooow!

    William Cheng · October 11, 2010
  • Reggie G.

    Beware of the 30 minute parking on Wilshire.

    Reggie Gregg · September 2, 2010
  • Jamez

    The way to go is to just order a bowl. Throw whatever you want in there.

    Jamez · August 26, 2010
  • Dan M.

    Secret is to order a Bowl and then ask for tortillas on the side. This maximizes dollars/unit of food.

    Dan Murillo · August 12, 2010
  • Dave K.

    Wait a few more months before this place pulls it together. Unless you enjoy cold burritos, head to Marina Del Ray or you may be disappointed.

    Dave Krosky · July 12, 2010
  • Brit B.

    Thrilled to have a Chipotle come to town but they gotta send someone in from corporate to teach these guys how to wrap a burrito.

    Brit Browning · July 9, 2010
  • Whitney L.

    Website made me wait an hour to pick up after ordering online, but even though I got here early my food was cold. Had it been sitting out that entire hour? It was still good though

    Whitney Lauritsen · July 8, 2010
  • Whitney L.

    If line is up to the door it will take about 15 minutes to get through. Next time order online or with iPhone app

    Whitney Lauritsen · July 1, 2010
  • Jesse T.

    Use your iPhone to order (app)... but make sure you order WAY ahead of time.

    Jesse Tenorio · June 25, 2010
