The new restaurant that has become a hotspot for local tri-cities residents is Chipotle Mexican grill restaurant. Chipotle used to only be located in Chester and is now located in Colonial Heights, near the Toys R’ US store’s location. This new location is quicker way to get to this fan-favorite place. Many residents had to commute to the Chester location to satisfy their cravings for Chipotle’s food. While I was at new location, I ordered a salad which contained chopped romaine lettuce, black beans, grilled chicken, salsa, and cheese, with chipotle honey vinaigrette, which was very tasty, as usual. The new location maintained the impressive food quality of the Chester location.

This location was much larger than the Chester location with a more spacious seating/dining area  that made the restaurant seem less crowded than it was. I really enjoyed this feature because the other location used to feel very crowded and cramped. The staff members were really welcoming and still gave you the quality service that you got at the other location. The only negative I would give the restaurant is that they should hire more staff, because I anticipated that the service would go faster than at the other location, but you still have to wait a very long time to get up the counter to place your order and get your food to go. This is one area I still think needs improvement. I overall give the food quality a 4 star review but give the service  2.5 stars. I still recommend this restaurant to all local families and friends in the area.
