not all Chipoltles are the same. I've been eating at one in Crystal City (Arlington, VA) nearly every day lately. The salad is fantastic and a good deal for 6.45. I'm low carbing it, so I get the lettuce, peppers and onions, chicken, salsa, sour cream, cheese and dressing. It's a lot of food too. It's very good. And I've had the same meal at the Chipoltle in my old neighborhood in DC (Woodley Park) and the food is not nearly as good. Also, in Crystal City the staff is extremely pleasant, they smile, even the guys at the grill and the prep workers in the back, they all smile, are cheery, and you can tell they all get along. I dunno what it is about this particular location, but all my co-workers agree that the food and service at this one is ten times better than at other locations.
