Hehe...since we got talking about that on the C70 section..I was just curious to find out if Chipotle is now a national wide chain store already.<P>Man...I wish they open up some Yoshinoya here. Even Carl's Jr. or Jack-in-the-box would do....need something different than just your usual burger joints. Not that there's anything wrong with those mainstream burger places, but we do have those In-and-Out burgers here. <P>Yes, Arby's and Hardee's are still considered as regular fast food burger joints

What's Chipotle? I thought it was a smoked jalapeno pepper. <edit> Searching, they have a nifty website. <A HREF="http://ww.chipotle.com" TARGET=_blank>http://www.chipotle.com</A> <P>You don't have Carl's Jr. there in the PNW-ish area Kai? We're getting 6 of them b4 Xmas here in the Great White North... and I though <B>we</B> lived in the boonies! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>What's your NetWorth? Maybe they'll franchise!<BR><p>[This message has been edited by javadoc (edited 07-12-2002).]

Chipotle is a mexican semi-fast food restaraunt chain that is actually owned by McDonald's. Their specialty is burritos and tacos, and it's actually quite good. It's kind of a trendy place to eat here in my part of MD, and I go there all the time (very good stuff). <P>The other good one is Baja Fresh Mexican Grill. Kai, they have one near you over by Tower Records in Rockville.

Baja Fresh is also good, but can get a bit too greasy depends on what you order. But I do love how you give you more selection of different salsa and all.<P>I used to go to the Tower Records one, but nowadays if I'm desperate, I'll just head to the King's Farm one.<P>Speaking of the Chipotle at Gaithersburg...I also enjoy Quizno's Sub once a while, not sure about you guys.<P>Man...all these talks about food make me hungry, should have taken up my breakfast this morning. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/tongue.gif">

Yoshinoya is the way to go! I miss Wendy's. That was my staple food in college in NY, I haven't found a single one in SoCal. Love the spicy chicken sandwich.

Kensington, I don't know. There's one I know of in Gaithersburg at Montgomery Village Mall (near Border's). There's another I know of on Wisconsin Ave. just south of Tenley Metro, but across the street (used to be an Hour Eyes). I'm sure there are more, I just don't know where.<P>As for Burgers, you guys haven't had good fast food burgers unless you've been to In & Out, on the west coast (some in Vegas and Phoenix also). I'm telling you, they are the best ever.<P>For local fast food, you may wanna kick me, but I don't think Checker's is that bad.

Yeah, In & Outs rule. I still have a ratty ol' T-shirt from one in Pasadena. I LOVED that place. (Enough to buy a T-shirt, no less!) <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Also, there was a little chain around there called El Pollo Loco. Mmm mmm good...

I just came back from my first trip to Chiptle. Let me tell you, MCD's did a fine job. The food was awesome. For $5.00 you can't beat that burrito! Yum Yum...

Off Kings street...some good stuff, you DC metro guys should give that place a try.<P>

I refuse to eat at a chain that is owned by ****** that claims to have Mexican food (including "taco" bell, Chevy's, Del Taco, etc.). It's sort of along the same lines as ordering a hamburger at a pizza joint; ordering sushi prepared by Koreans; ordering a glass of wine at a microbrewery; someone giving you a handjob; etc. etc. etc. - the list goes on and on. There are just some things that don't make much sense, and then there are things that just aren't quite right from a moral standpoint.<P>-he who stacks pork<P>

LOL~! That was a funny post...not sure how getting a handjob would relate to Chipotle...but maybe there's a sick connection to the logic!! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Leopold Porkstacker:<BR><B>I refuse to eat at a chain that is owned by ****** that claims to have Mexican food (including "taco" bell, Chevy's, Del Taco, etc.).
