    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.

    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.

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

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

    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.
