Chipotle serves a focused menu of tacos, burritos, salads and burrito bowls (a burrito without the tortilla). Fill any one of these with your choice of cilantro-lime rice, pinot or vegetarian black beans, meat (braised caritas, barbacoa, adobo marinated and grilled chicken or beef all from naturally raised animals) or get it vegetarian style. These burritos get so big you have to learn a special way to eat them.
