There is FINALLY a Chipotle in Utah!

Back when Dentist husband was in dental school and we were dating, we had a favorite restaurant--Chipotle. (Actually, we had a few but this one fit our budget better than others). It was brand new when my husband started dental school and we ate there a lot. They started opening more around the Denver area and shortly after getting married, they put one in Boulder, where we were living. Every Monday night for Family Home Evening, we would ride our bikes (weather permitting ofcourse) to Chipotle and eat dinner there. It was one of the few things I could keep down when I pregnant with toothsome #1 and buy the time he graduated from school, all of the employees knew us by name and would start making our burritos when we walked into the door. We once even got free chips and salsa on a slow night and we were the only ones there.


Well, we moved to Utah when Dentist husband graduated and it was so long to Chipotle. I still checked out their web-site occasionally and whenever we went back to Boulder to visit, we always stopped there.


Last week, I got an e-mail that they were opening up a Chipotle somewhat close to our house! Not only that, but the first 200 customers who purchased burritos, got a free t-shirt and a coupon for another free burrito! Well, you can imagine the excitement in this house. The kids got home from school, Dentist husband got home from work and off we went. It was everything we imagined it would be and we are all thrilled to be close to a Chipotle once again.

I cannot believe that there is one in Utah!! I grew up in Aurora and could never get enough. Got married, came to Utah and when I go to visit I buy one to eat and then right before I leave I go and get another one and take it home with me to have for dinner when I get back. You can never have too much Chipotle.

I love the food as well. The only thing that worries me is when they did the Bountiful location.. they put the most stupid chairs in there. They are impossible to sit in and really uncomfortable. I think I will be a "to go" customer, which might be the idea, but still I would make the place more comfortable if I were them. I hope they'll stay around because the food is really good.

i'm a big fan of cafe rio and am so jealous of anyone living in utah because they get to eat there, but chipotle is my favorite. they had one in brooklyn that was pretty close and i tried to eat there on a bi-weekly basis, but now the closest one is at grand central. so i try to get travis to bring it home to me whenever he has time before his train! you are so lucky.

carnitas, right?
