what's up with chipotle's chicken? - Fri, 05/17/13 2:26 PM
it seems like every few months they switch off between a chicken that's really good, and one that's absolutely terrible. anyone else notice this? the bad chicken just tastes like soft rubber, not even edible in my opinion.    right now it's the good chicken, but i wonder how much longer it'll last before i have to stop going to chipotle again.

Haven't eaten at Chipotle is over 5 years. Don't they still do Niman Ranch?

true, it's hardly ever hot.  maybe they do niman ranch part time, but are trying to cut costs, i dunno.  the barbacoa is better than the chicken.  the steak is even worse though, god it's bad.

I've only been to a Chipotle once. The food was OK, but nothing to write home about. When we eat in a similar vein it's usually Qdoba. Their chicken is always done right and tastes OK. I usually eat their pork, but the rest of the family likes their chicken in various dishes.

I went to a Chipotle's last week for the first time in Omaha, NE.  What's all the fuss with this place?  It's just a Subway with what purports to be Mexican food and the interior is one of the chinziest interiors of a restaurant I've ever seen.  Had the food been good it might've been ok but my hunch is that they're all like this.
