Home » Food » Finally Ate at Chipotle Mexican Grill!

I have passed Chipotle Mexican Grill at Yonge/Eglinton NUMEROUS times but never went in. However this week – that changed. I finally went in and had lunch there.

Seeing as I had never been there before, I noticed that there’s more than just burritos or tacos!!  You can select a salad or a bowl as well.

Menu...Something for Everyone

I wanted to try something different, so I chose the bowl. Then it was explained to me, that my bowl would contain cilantro lime rice with the following options: pinto or black beans, three different types of salsa, sour cream, cheese and avocado. I chose EVERYTHING. (why not?). Then I realized what I did – and took 4 lactose pills!!


I managed to inhale my meal while observing how clean the restaurant was!! Then I did some more research and found out that Chipotle Mexican Grill is a franchise with numerous locations throughout the U.S., U.K and Canada. Toronto actually has the only two locations in Canada. (fun fact – don’t you think).

I also learned that Chipotle Mexican Grill really cares. Their websites says “Not just a burrito, its a foil wrapped, hand crafted, local farm supporting, food culture changing cylinder of deliciousness.

How can you not like a restaurant that has: great customer service, fresh food, a commitment to supporting local farmers, and serves food with integrity?

When they mean fresh – they mean fresh:

Plus the staff are super friendly and even took the time to take a photo with me!

Friendly staff pose with momwhoruns!!

I now know where to go when I’m looking for a healthy meal..right down the street to Yonge/Eglinton

Hope you get a chance soon to visit either location one day soon:

2323 Yonge Street  (Yonge/Eglinton) 416-489-8601

or 323 Yonge St. (Yonge/Dundas) 416-596-8600

Cross your fingers that you see more locations in Canada in the near future!!

    I love this place and discovered the very first one in Denver when it first started back ~1997 when I was in Grad. School. Moved to CA after graduating and wrote them to please expand to CA and eventually they did but still don’t have one within 30 mins of me! Never realized how “organic” and environmentally friendly they are until recently but it adds to their credibility. BTW it is spelled ChipoTLE but don’t worry. We had a ton of us in Grad school that would say “chipolte”. Cheers!

    A friend introduced me to this restaurant about a month ago and being gluten free and vegan (always a challenge dining out) I was so pleased to know that I could eat here. Just love it and hope they”ll open one closer to the Beach!

    Chipotle rocks and is one of my favourite lunch time spots! I’m a big fan of their soft tacos and love that you can mix b/t steak, pork and chicken. Their guac is super tasty too. My Yelp review is coming this week. The Yonge and Eg location is by far one of the best designed fast food joints in this city. It’s cool that you blogged about it.
