If people aren’t complaining about the immediate trip to the bathroom after eating Chipotle, then they are complaining about all the portion sizes and what a ripoff the add-ons can be. I have cashed out at the place with a $14 bill before. It’s highway robbery.
Unless you know some of these clever cheats that self proclaimed “Chipotle Expert” James Pan as come up with, to get yourself some much bigger portions on your next trip to burrito heaven.
1. Smile at your server.
Pan says this is extremely important. Waiting in line Chipotle lines can be a horrible experience. Serving up burritos to cranky customers can be even worse. Next time give the burrito making line a smile and a wink.
2. Get a burrito bowl.
It is pretty well known by now that by ordering a bowl instead of the burrito tortilla, you get more for your buck. It’s also easier to eat in my opinion. If you are on lunch break from work you lower your chances of a dress shirt salsa disaster.
3. Ask for a tortilla on the side.
This is free. Yes, FREE! Something at Chipotle is FREE. Sound the alarms!
4. Ask for extra rice at no extra cost.
Carbs! Delicious delicious carbs. That rice is like crack though let’s be honest.
5. Order both pinto and black beans for free.
Mmmm… beans. The pinto/black bean combo is an underrated Chipotle trick. One less decision you have to make!
