It's a Chipotle so you know what to expect. It's a fairly large Chipotle. If seating is tight, you can step outside and walk around the Trader Joe's and find a quiet place to sit at a table inside the mall. Parking at this location can be really tight most times of day.

As the title suggests we dined there at lunch because our 11 year old charge likes Chipotle's food and this premise was close to where we picked him up. It was our first visit. Probably our last if we can help it. It was lunch time and it was busy but we had no problems getting a table.

What kind of bad services by cheating on customers. Wow, I was so surprise when the girl charged my wife a large soda from our lunch and she never drinks soda. She drinks hot tea or coffee in the morning and just water for lunch. Food is not good and sometimes you are afraid of old food would give you... More

Seriously, one would expect, after recent health issues at some Chipotle restaurants, that everyone would be on board with temperature issues in the food. Not the case here! My chicken bowl was not even at room temperature. Watch out!

I came here one evening to get takeout to bring home with me, as I was on my way home for the evening. I ordered a bowl, not a burrito, which meant that it was essentially the filling ingredients without the tortilla. I was not especially hungry, so I didn't feel I needed the tortilla to fill me up. The... More

Nothing in particular stood out about Chipotle. It is an assembly line restaurant. You choose what you like and which ingredients you want on your chosen meal, pay for it and sit down and eat it. It's similar to Barbacoa and not nearly good as Cafe Rio. It's nice for a quick meal if you don't have a lot of... More

Chipotle for many years has been my choice of fast food type Mexican restaurant. However the quality control of the food and the level of service have diminished over the past year. What surprises me with the La Jolla location which is not a very busy store but the level service from Management to line staff is just not there.... More

The Chipotle chain doesn't have much consistency in their food. The food here is below the average level of all the Chipotle that I've ever been to. But the atmosphere is good, the outside seats are the best.

We eat at Chipotle when we go to La Jolla Village Square for shopping. The food looks healthy and full of nutrients.

Chipotle is a good solid lunch place. High quality ingredients and fast (except for the lines at lunch hour!). If you want real Mexican food go some place else
