Brooklyn >Chipotle Mexican Grill
“Faustian bargain aside, this is a pretty tasty (and gigantic) burrito, that is almost always done right.”
Tacos and burritos are custom-made with fresh ingredients at this industrial-chic Mexican chain..
Boasting a sleek decor of blond wood, raw steel and exposed pipes, this taqueria hums with conversation and an eclectic mix of piped-in salsa, rock and reggae. Patrons--mostly on-the-go professionals and parents with kids in tow--line up at an assembly-line style counter for hard and soft tacos or burritos (regular, fajita-style or without the tortilla) made with fillings like grilled chicken or steak, free-range pork or shredded beef.
Assembly Line Mexican Experience + Bad Service. Agree with everything in an earlier review, "Assembly Line Mexican Experience." Besides Chipotle's other faults, I'd add that the service is pretty crummy at its very best. The employees don't seem to be stockholders. The only reason this restaurant doesn't receive my "not recommended" recommendation is that most of its competitors on Montague St. in Brooklyn Heights are a lot worse.
Assembly Line Mexican Experience.... This is yet another fast-food chain that turns eating into a mechanical, soul-less experience. The place looks like the inside of a factory, with its steel drums, over-amped A/C and hard wooden benches, and the industrial decor seeps into overly streamlined menu and passionless food. Don't go there if you want anything other than a burrito. You won't even find a chipotle there. No tortilla chips with your order. No salads, soups, enchiladas, tortas, flautas, tostadas, or rellenos to be found. If you think eating a burrito should be like taking a quick hit from an industrial fast-food IV, this'll serve you fine, but finding real Mexican somewhere else will serve you much better.
