As if it wasn’t already quick and easy enough to get your Chipotle fix, it’s now even faster and cooler. The Chipotle iPhone App made a brief appearance on the App Store earlier this year, however was removed (word is that there was just too much demand and the system they had in place wasn’t handling it very well).
But now the Chipotle iPhone App is back! Skip the line and reduce the time between craving and consuming your favorite Chipotle delicacy (chicken fajita burritos with guacamole are my weakness) by ordering straight from your iPhone. Once it’s ordered you get to skip to the front of the line where you can pick up your craving and go.
Overall the Chipotle App is very slick and appears to work flawlessly. For each menu item you can customize it to your heart’s content, selecting extra meat, various toppings like salsas, cheese, guacamole (as much as it irritates me that it costs so much more to add it, it’s completely worth it), lettuce, etc.
After you’ve ordered your food, you can select sides like chips & guac, drinks, and whatever else you want from the Chipotle menu. You can save favorite orders for quick access later on also, a very nice touch.
Altogether I couldn’t be more happy that the Chipotle iPhone App is available again. I usually eat at Chipotle a few times a month and this will make it even more convenient when I do. I do fear however, that the nation’s obesity rate will edge up now that ordering 1,000+ calorie burritos isn’t even going to require you to stand in line.
Judging from some reviews on the App Store a few people seem to be having random issues with either the Chipotle App itself not working properly or their local Chipotle store not being used to getting iPhone App orders and consequently not having the order ready. Other than those few incidents the App seems good to go.
So what are you waiting for? If you’re a Chipotle fan download this app NOW and never stand in line again (and oh ya, it’s FREE too!).
Panappticon Verdict: 95/100 — A must-have for the Chipotle connoisseur. Some random App and Chipotle store issues keep it from earning a perfect score.
